The day after the day after Boxing Day

On December 28, 2003, we had a proper Christmas dinner at the Club Paradisio Ashiya; that is, Simon and Sara's house. Wooow, someone can COOK! We had roasted potatos, yams, carrots.. EVERYTHING. Gravy. A tiny turkey, too. Soscha made chocolate, cookies, Austrian peach sangria. And after dinner there was cake, fruit, and cheese.

Oh, that was a tasty feast.

Sara, Yukiko, and Jason. (And Don.)

Soscha, the most interesting person in the world.

"Niko niko" means to smile. Here are Niko and Shuhei.

Sophia hangs suspended.

Don and I were in charge of fruit. We brought apples and oranges.
(They are real, yes.)

Chiho, Colin, Yukiko, and Jason.

Simon announces the results of the coin toss...

...and the result is that I must drink this beer and wine. It won't turn me into a barracuda like Jason, will it?

Sara and Sophia were exempt from forced beverage-mixing.

After that we broke into a fit of dancing, but I can't post those pictures without incriminating any part of any couple. Little Sophia is a dancer, too. I caught her on video, rocking out to her favorite Incubus track.
