This blog will mostly be by Jan, but this is Paul intruding to say:
We are having a party. It was imagined as a massive-invite-everyone-we-know-in-Winnipeg-party, but it's shaping up to be more of an intimate affair. Which is what we get for waiting until the week of to start inviting people.
Our apartment is getting emptier by the day, and by party time tonight we will have only one couch, one kitchen table and a few kitchen chairs left. There's nothing on the walls, and what was once our living room is now empty save for boxes. I'm hoping that is part of the theme of the party. It's BYOS (bring your own seating).
I'd planned on baking a cake, but realized last night that we have no cake pans left. So hopefully a friend will loan me hers.
The whole experience of planning this party is a little surreal. It might be a little depressing to try to have a party in a mostly-empty apartment, especially if not many people turn up. Which isn't any kind of insult to the lovely people who ARE coming -- it's not like they're not good enough. But I was hoping for a sheer volume of people to make up for the lack of stuff in the place.
