Well, the party's over...

The last guest walked out the door about 15 minutes ago (had to catch up on my email) so I think I'll call my birthday party successful.

I think I counted 16 people.

There was:
* Stephen
* Marian
* Scott
* Kolya
* Tim and Susan
* Daniel and Tanya
* James and Lara
* Will
* Byron, and friend Vicki
* Tom
* Kelly
* Aaron

Plus I had a drop in visit from Kevin.

Shane had said he probably wouldn't be able to come, as had Jason, as had Glen, as had Nadine, so they were excused. Amaya was having something also on that night (my timing sucks!) so Amaya and those people are excused.

I got an e-card from Tina, so that was cute.

Nothing from Gary, James and Wal. Didn't expect anything though. I'm a little bit annoyed that they didn't even say they couldn't come.

In fact, except from Nadine and Shane, I got nothing from any of the Camarilla people I sent invites to, so I'm not very happy about that.

Presents and stuff! I got a card from Mum and Dad, as you expect. Stephen gave me next years Queensland Firemans calendar. From Stephen and Scott I got a Jester-on-a-stick (with bells on - don't ask, I may post photo's). Daniel and Tanya gave me a copy of the Billionaire card game (cool! My copy is getting a bit dirty). Tim and Susan gave me a copy of the Grass card game, which is also cool. From Marian I got a copy of the Death's Domain maps of Diskworld, which is really cool.

Oh, and Stephen provided a birthday cake.

I think I'm going to bed now.

16 people
Must be nice to have 16 people about. I know 16 people, but not 16 people I'd ever invite anywhere, maybe 8 & that would just be for a game.

Glad your b'day went well, you seemed down beforehand.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
