Parties and Social gatherings

We are all sitting
Legs crossed round a fire
My yellow flame she dances
Tequila drinking, oh, our
Minds will wander
To wondrous places

Eat, drink, and be merry
For tomorrow we die
'Cause we're Tripping Billies

-Tripping Billies by Dave Matthews Band

Every once in a while, when the load of the semester or that of the research gets too much for the GCATT crowd of Networking and Telecommunication Group, someone throws a potluck party.

Following is a peek in the otherwise plain life of an NTGer.
