Club was big fun, I got big drunk. Got to see lots of people, and some I didn't expect.. More details on it later (possibly.)

But, main point of this post is to note my mail is down. Again. So, if you need to send me something ASAP, use my alternate.

EDIT: E-mail is fixed. YAY.

On this day in 1991, the Supreme Soviet, the parliament of the U.S.S.R., suspended all activities of the Communist Party, bringing an end to the institution.

And in case you missed my earlier edit, my e-mail is back to working normally again.

So, clubbing last night was big fun, as aforementioned. No big recap, as others have done better work elsewhere. Really, it was just great seeing lots of people, and a couple long-lost ones as well. I had more or less lost my voice from the combination of smoke, shouting to be heard above the music, singing along with the aforementioned music, etc. Wouldn't have changed a thing though. OK, maybe *one* less drink, but other than that, nope.

If she hasn't had a kid by then, my sister will be induced on Monday night. She's extraordinarily pregnant at this point, and the doctors think she is well-ready.

Busy busy weekend (and week thereafter) coming up, lots of 'stuff' in general including working Sunday morning. Adding in trips to the hospital to see sister and new nephew, as well as visiting Nana, whoo doggy. I'm ready for my summer vacation.

Oh, wait.
