Red Echo

April 30, 2007

It was a wild weekend here at Heden. Saturday night was the Spring Fling party, and we spent all day getting ready. I finished setting up my room about an hour before guests were due to start arriving – just enough time to grab some dinner and take a quick shower. Then it was non-stop go until dawn; I finally shut the door to my room at around 7 AM.

The room was even more of a success than I had hoped. People were crowded in here all night, talking and laughing and drinking and having fun. There were rarely fewer than five people sprawled out on my bed. Total strangers leaned against my bookshelves and held hour-long conversations. It was great. I spent less time dancing than I usually do at parties like this, but I had more fun than ever; there’s nothing like having all your best friends pack into your room and rock the place out for hours on end.

I bought a pair of Rokit RP5 monitors a few weeks ago but had not had a chance to plug them in until now. What a big, crisp, clear sound! You can hear everything, and it sounds great. I wish I’d made this upgrade years ago.

Sunday we spent laying around talking, relaxing, and basically doing nothing. I left the house once, at about 4 PM, to pick up a big pile of sushi for breakfast.


  1. Thanks for hosting and putting so much work into it. It was a fabulous party.

    Mmm, sushi breakfast!

  2. I’m curious about something. Did you build the closet in your room? I don’t often see closets like that in American dwellings and it reminded me of Germany.

    On a completely different note, a friend sent me this website and I thought you may find it interesting.

  3. The closet came with the room. I gutted it, painted it, and put in a new organizer system, but the wood is all original.
