Christmas Party!

Last night, my friend Penny (who is Amazing Johnathan's main assistant), had her annual Christmas party. It's tradition for me to go, and I've been going there for the past 7 or 8 years...maybe longer...

It's often held on a weeknight, since that's when the show is dark, and since most of the people are entertainers, they either have the day off the next day, or don't have a show until the next evening, so people can stay up late.

It was great catching up with old friends and making new ones. One lady who was there, was the person who got me my first gig as a magician. I rarely see her anymore since she spends much of her time in England now.

Just as I was leaving, Carrot Top (AKA Scott) showed up, and I was able to introduce him to my boyfriend. He's such a nice guy, and very quiet and unlike his on stage persona.

We did a grab bag, and a white elephant, exchanged gifts, and ate a lot. Penny is one of those people that gets really angry if you don't show up hungry. She even made corn pudding just for me, since she knows that that's my favorite thing she makes.

I'm more of a home-body, but I do love a party once in a while...we have one more to go to on Christmas night, and then I think we'll be good for the year...well, until New Year's Eve, that is.
