Surprise !

There was an unexpected ring at the doorbell a minute ago. It was a student from next door, coming to tell me that she was having a party in the evening for her 21st birthday. She promised that they'd try not to get out of hand, or be too noisy, too late.

It was very thoughtful of her to give advance warning, and essentially to point out that this would be a one-off. This happened once before, a few years ago, and shows that the party-holders are aware that they would cause disruption to their neighbours. It's easier to put up with the noise if you know it's not going to be a regular occurance, and that the people causing it have some condisderation and won't go on till all hours.

And what's more, this girl gave me a small bag of sweets (coconut ice). Being cynical, it could be something she was given and didn't want herself, but it's still a nice gesture. Charm the neighbours first, then have your wild party: it's the way to go.
