A Three-Day Blow

I'm hoping that by tomorrow ack emma, I'll be sober. I've just been on a three-day blow: Friday night, around and about Manhattan, delivering plum puddings (with accoutrements) to English ex-patriates, drinking myself silly on the way; then, after sleeping till mid-afternoon, Saturday night at No. 32 for a White Trashmas party; and then this evening at No. 44, for a more conventional open house, complete with red wine, white wine, port, and egg nogg laced with Barbadan rum.

Excellent browsing at that last, by the way: yum, yum! One dish, the jambalaya, inspired an on-the-spot parody of Mona Lisa:

Rob [our host] has made you;
You're so full of shrimps and sausages and things!
If in culinary terms I had to grade you,
I would say that you were fit for queens and kings.
You're a gastonomic native of New O'leans,
But you've taken all America by storm;
All your herbs and your spices have made you
So delicious,
I'm suspicious!
And the best part of all, Jambalaya—
You're as tasty when you're cold, as when you're warm.
