Holiday party

Catapult Systems held their annual Holiday Party this evening at the Renaissance Hotel in northwest Austin, the fifth that Debra and I have attended.  The invitation says "semi formal," but most people dress up formally and a few of us even wear tuxedos.  Debra, of course, out-shined me in her new gown.  Sometimes I wonder how I got so lucky.  After the official party we adjourned to the night club attached to the hotel for a couple hours of dancing and assorted craziness.  But the place filled up with smoke and we had to leave before hypoxia set in.  I don't know how I managed to spend so much time in bars when I was younger.

I thought I had a program that would remove the "red eye" effect from photos, but I can't find it now.  I guess it was one of those trashy image editor programs that installed with some hardware and which was harder to use than the features warranted.  When I find a decent program with that feature I'll come back and remove the red eyes.  Although Debra does look quite devilish with that red glow in her eyes, doesn't she?
