New Year's Eve 2006

Another year, another drink, what's the difference anymore? This will be my first "regular" blog entry in that it will be like a personal journal instead of random crap.

The New Years party at Shooters had its ups and downs. Among the many ups were its all-star celebrity turnout: Tony Danza, Jody Sweetin, and Bob Uecker, just to name a few. The can't-miss combo of open bar and dinner buffet were offset by the complete lack of cab service after the party, the not-so-clever trick of giving us crappy liquor when we ordered good stuff, and the understaffed bar.

The best parts I can still remember are here. Please leave comments if I forget anything.
  • Evan stealing the enormous bottle of champagne and getting away with it
  • Evan getting the bottle taken away from him when he went back inside
  • "Finding" a miniature bottle of champagne everywhere -- behind ears, up asses, you name it!
  • "Drinking" every bottle I found before midnight
  • The prime rib
  • Cassie and my cousins spending 20 minutes trying to figure out how to use the elevator (which is the same as every elevator you have ever used, I promise)
  • Trying so very hard to drink 400 beers after we got home -- we made it as far as two
  • Peeing in the river from the deck, just like I said I would when I was sober enough to think I was joking
  • Mandy and Molly spending the first two hours deciding what to drink while waiting to start drinking in order to keep from getting too drunk
  • That weirdo, Rufo, humping Grant's butt
  • Grant's butt
  • Everyone's butt
  • Some dude starting to tell Mandy that she is so wonderful until I told him she was my girlfriend. Then he told me I am the luckiest guy in the world and he wishes us the best. I bet he went back to his fat old wife after that.
  • Breakfast
  • Joe in the trunk
  • "Yes, Crown Royal is included in the open bar."
Some of the worst parts are here.
  • "I'm sorry. We are out of Crown Royal. What else would you like?"
  • Waiting, calling, and compaining about the lack of cabs
  • Running a shuttle service instead of playing with the meter and pissing off a cabbie
  • "Hey! Can I get a drink?! Please! I'm over here! No... right here! Me next!"
  • That awful club-mix medley of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, and Guns 'n Roses
  • Cassie's boobs being everywhere
  • Complete lack of karaoke
  • New Year's headaches
  • Another several pounds on my waist
All in all, a fine time.
