Rachel made pork chops with bacon and ham shavings, some ungodly good potatoes with apples, and salmon tartare cornets.

Heaven Hill Bourbon was brought by Padgett Powell, who drank ice water and liquor-less nog. Rachel played happy birthday on ukulele. David Leavitt put too many candles into my birthday cake. I received a fantastic hand-made card. We nearly got drunk on cake. There was slight making out in the hallway.
