the housewarming went just fine even though i had worried so much. people kept being surprised at the number of stuffed animals i have. i am ashamed that i didn't have them out all these years now... dang. it was nice to have people over and to have a place where it's possible. it's really been a long time since that's been the case. some people showed that i didn't expect, some people didn't show that i DID expect, and the important thing is that everyone fit. and that i didn't suddenly have an attack of the anti-socials or something. i had my expectations pretty low so i wouldn't get them disappointed, though. i just wanted to be mellow, and fortunately, that's what i got. and a little drunk. hence hangover. oh, and i (and my roommate) also got 6 bottles of wine and a TON of beer. maybe we should have a small beer-obliteration gathering or something. that or we have a year's supply of beer which seems more likely.
there was some sport had at the party; reev was offered $83 to eat the tub of espresso beans we had on the snack table. he failed, and the espresso-bean-eating-crown ended up going to devolutionary. the crown by that point was only worth $55 or so i hear. nobody threw up, and i can't tell if that's a sign of a successful party or not. bizarrojack did that knife-in-the-nose trick which he always does at parties which had me waking up in a cold sweat the next morning with dreams of him accidentally giving himself a lobotomy. *shiver* the cow creamer was safely hidden although a few people got to have a private viewing. no neighbors seemed to be bothered by our noise which either means we weren't noisy or we really do have thick walls & floors. it was an "early" party night with most people leaving at 2 and me in bed by 4. have i passed the WOO-WOO all-night party-til-dawn portion of my life completely? i hope not. particularly since i work the OVERNIGHT now and i really ought to take advantage of that while i can...
i was having that same problem concentrating on any one conversation that i usually have at parties. lame.
i realize one thing i desperately want for christmas. it is the split enz dvd. you cannot get it in the US. i weep. i want it so badly. i don't even know if i can get a DVD player that will play it but you see, i don't even care. *sigh*
when we woke up today, i offered to take jack to see the jackass movie. i figured no matter how bad it was, i could always just close my eyes and wait, as it was only 1.5 hours long. and i knew jack really wanted to see it. so we went. and truth be told, i didn't hate it. in fact i laughed at most of it. i had never seen the show so i didn't realize that really, most of the things they do, they do to themselves which i have less of a problem with than if they're doing mean things to other people. some things offended, sure. but if a guy's going to give himself a papercut in an incredibly uncomfortable place, then you know, he can just go do that. if i'm foolish enough to spend money to WATCH him do it, then i guess uh... i'm foolish. it's certainly easier for me to see people do it on a screen than if i had to be nearby. i bet guys all over america are kicking themselves thinking that they should have televised their ridiculous shenanigans first.
i can't wait to go back home and go to bed. it's really hard to think about anything else right now.
