Birthday Party for Meems

O's mom, and her dear friend Bryan, came over for a birthday celebration dinner. Olaiya, as usual, cooked up a fine repast. The mash (made with celery root, potatoes and apple cider) complimented everything else on the plate perfectly. The other guests enjoyed Cornish game hens, whilst I supped on Brussels sprouts. May sound like a raw deal, but actually they were delicious. The birthday cake, a frozen tiramisu concoction, was amazing.

Much of the night's humor revolved around telling people that they were "cut off". As in, Cher tipped over a water glass and everyone muttered, "That's it... cut her off. She's out of control." But no one was more "cut off" than Bryan. Late in the night when Bryan was describing the difficulty of self-promotional marketing, Olaiya asked him in an ironic drawl, "Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?" His reply: "I'm an AmeriCUNT." After 10 minutes of falling out of our chairs laughing, Bryan was officially cut off for the rest of the night.
