I became spontaneously really tired and pessimistic and depressed-feeling in the middle of it, for some reason, through no fault of the host nor party-goers. I speculatively blame the fact that I was playing around on Sal's keyboard and played some old tunes that stirred up a bit of emotional mud in the waters of my memory.
Wireless in the house is being a bit sketchy for me, crapping out entirely on the living-room couch. Dunno why. Maybe my card got jostled loose or something?
