From Last Week's Party

* There were a lot of cameras at the party. At one particular moment, a camera was passed: "Take our picture!" The recipient (a woman, as it happened) complied, and was about to take a picture, when the subjects said "Turn the camera around!" meaning they wanted the photo oriented portrait-style (vertically) rather than landscape (horizontally).

The photographer then proceded the rotate the camera: 45, 90 (okay), 120 (wait), 180 degrees.

Upside down.

I laughed loudly and rather obnoxiously.

* Overheard: "Flesh-nami"

* I posed the question: Does the "Irish Curse" have anything to do with St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland?

* I learned how to say a bad word in Tongan, but I forget what it was.
