It was July of 2010, and my biggest worry at the time was whether or not we should spring for the cappuccino bar at the reception.
The reception, too, was the same: just like in New York, Olmert was repeatedly interrupted by angry hecklers in D.C. today.
Everything was all set—and then Taylor was brought low by brain cancer, and the Grozny reception called off.
late 14c., in astrology, "effect of two planets on each other;" sense of "act of receiving" is recorded from late 15c., from Latin receptionem (nominative receptio) "a receiving," noun of action from past participle stem of recipere (see receive). Sense of "ceremonial gathering" is 1882, from French.
