One more note about the party: despite going to bed fairly early, we were very very tired for the next day. I know that I was really dragging through the morning activities and seeing Mike's family off.

Once we got home, then, we sat on the couch to watch a DVD, and both fell asleep while the DVD was playing.

I know that we're both introverts, and that much as we like hosting parties, we find it draining. It's pretty typical for us to have a very down day on the day after our parties. But this is interesting evidence that the energy that's drained for us by parties is specifically fatigue energy, and recharged by sleep.

3:32p - Jim's Drive-in
On Sunday, we finally got around to trying Jim's Drive-in in West Mifflin.

Jim's is a hot dog shop that has been in business since 1927, and in the current location for over forty years.

Jim's has a special sauce for its hot dogs; it's mellow brown, translucent, and smooth, with flecks of spice. The sauce was noticeably spicy; I felt my lips glowing afterward. It was tasty; I would get it again.

I am far from a hot dog connoisseur, so I have trouble judging the hot dog. Both the hot dog and bun were griddled to be nearly black in places, but that worked well for this dog.

The french fries were good, but the cheese sauce was probably a mistake--it was no better than one would expect any melted nacho cheese to be.
