One of THOSE parties….


Ok, I think I am finally semi-recovered enough from this weekend’s festivities to start posting again.

Saturday night we went to our friend’s annual Summer block party. We go just about every year.

I’ve never in my life seen a block party like this one. It encompasses 4 complete neighborhood blocks. Just about every manner of drunken debauchery can be found somewhere within these blocks.

And I think I was able to find most of ‘em!

From dunk-tanks, to rock-wall climbing, to drunken Slip –n- Slide races, just about anything I should be TOO OLD to do, I did.

It’s nice to be able to just act like an ass and go a little crazy every once in a while. I’ve had some stuff going on in my life recently (that I may discuss at some point), so it was nice to get away from it all for a bit.

But, I’m sure much to Earl’s glee, I got completely smashed on every manner of Girl-Drink that people passed my way. And I got passed A LOT of them. I got hit on by some older chick who made ME look sober, which was a nobel achievment. And expected… I AM a hot piece of ass, you know.

Anyway, my high (i.e. low) point of the night came when, around midnight, in a fit of drunken inspiration, myself and a bunch of other drunk adults kicked all off the kids out of the huge “bouncy house” and invaded it for ourselves.

It was fun at first, but in the darkness, while stumbling and tumbling around in there, I got my package squeezed at least 3 times.

I can only hope all of the grabs were from drunk women, but one of the hands grabbing me felt a little too “firm” for me to be sure.

I collected whatever dignity I had left and bounced/rolled/crawled my way back out into the summer night.

Friz thought the whole scene was hysterical. I believe there is video.

I think I need to lay low for awhile…

p.s. The banner pic is NOT me. I am SO much hotter than that. Really.

teeni said...

Wow! That was SOME block party. I think I will take something away from this post that will stay with me forever and that is never to get into a bubble bouncer (or whatever those things are called) with a bunch of drunks! LOL. Aw, I was wondering if that was you in the banner.
Well, the good thing is you had fun and nobody got hurt. Nobody DID get hurt, right? ;)

Let me see, in comparrison, I did yard work, did laundry, developed some film, put together some videos, worked on my mother's house and drank half a magnum of Shiraz in my garage while playing Medal of Honor on my GameCube.

I need to get out more, obviously.

As you were bouncing away in a happy moment, I was sitting at the pool. Different strokes for different folks... Glad you had a good time and please show the video....
