This past Saturday, a bunch of people came over to help me celebrate my 29th birthday. Stef organized the party (behind my back, at first) and sent out invites to a pretty wide range of people. The party was a guys-only poker party and the turnout was great. It's my theory that by excluding females upfront, more of the men were empowered to make their own decision on whether or not to attend - and in most cases for most men, it's hard to pass up free beer, food, and poker. And so it was - a night filled with beer, food, and poker, just as planned - with some beerpong, mexican, and karaoke thrown in for good measure.
As for the dammage report - I am pretty sure there were only minor spills/etc. Scuba Steve peed on our couch, Several people booted in the bathroom (sink?), Irwin yaked on our bedroom floor, and JCTMH (and his plate full of food) fell down the steps. Other than that, no major incidents - and nothing the good old Bissel couldn't handle. But damn, Irwin, what did you eat?
With so many people, I always feel spread very thin. So if I didn't get a chance to talk to you very much - I'd like to officially thank you for coming and helping it be a fun time. Special thanks to the love of my life, Stef, for planning it and handling all of the food; and to Brad for organizing the poker.

Hella party! Well done. I had a blast. And congrats to the b-day man for being one of the winners of the poker.

Thanks for everything, yo. Extraspecially the winggydinggies.
bean (March 07, 2006 at 12:09:05 PM):
Once again, I got no wings.
Except a "test" wing that was not fully cooked.
Irwin (March 08, 2006 at 04:45:31 PM):
I think I puked a third of Domino's 5-5-5 deal. I hope the bedroom (smell and look) is back to normal now.
bean (March 09, 2006 at 08:38:23 AM):
Looked more like pizza, wings, salsa, red velvet cake, meatballs - everything red.
No worries, though. It all came out. It's what I'd expect from a party of 20 guys.
Wondering who all puked - here's the list I have in my mind:
Irwin (+carpet bonus)
JCTMH (+falling down stairs bonus)
Paul (+sink bonus)
Corbin (+piss bonus)
Surely there were more
