Happy New Year!

As new year's eve 2009 arrived, I found myself at a large swingers' ball with friends. I would have loved to have been ringing in the new year with TheLibrarian, but he was some 800 miles away with his other girlfriend and her husband at a several day long house party they'd long attended with old friends. As seems to be her habit, she'd snagged him for NYE well in advance - when I asked about his New Year's Eve plans around Thanksgiving, he'd already committed to going on this trip with them. Unfortunately, due to the overlap of my own cross country trip to visit my family for the holidays and his trip for New Year's Eve, we wouldn't see each other for two weeks around the holidays, which was disappointing.

So, for New Year's Eve, I weighed my options, and accepted an invitation from Tim and Karen and B and his girlfriend Sandra to join them at a swingers' ball about an hour and a half away. It was a "hotel takeover" event, meaning the party (with DJ, dance floor, social areas, and "play" areas) was in the hotel's ballroom, and the hotel's rooms were filled with the party's patrons. B and Sandra were going to be arriving later than the rest of us and would eventually need to get home to relieve the babysitter, so Tim and Karen and I got a room to share with the assumption that B and Sandra would make it their party home base as well.
