dinner party. last night we had some friends over for dinner. a- made julia child's recipe for coq au vin. the food was great (of course) and the mixing of my friend from work and his wife with a-'s friend from her old job and her husband turned out to be lovely company. i'm sure the three bottles of wine and the whisky didn't hurt anything.
i went to the bedford cheese shop for cheese earlier that day and much to my surprise they also had penguins for sale. i couldn't resist even tho they were absurdly expensive.
