Lessons from the party

  1. Never post when drunk. Or slightly buzzed. Brain no worky, no writing in public forums. Yeesh.
  2. Hosting is easy when you prepare ahead of time.
  3. Sangria rocks.
  4. Starting at 5 is WAY to early. Being drunk and silly at 6PM is fun, but the night ends awfully soon. Also, people need to eat.
  5. Invite lots of people, less than half ever actually show.
  6. Do not provide projectiles to drunken boys.
  7. Party games are fun. And silly.
  8. Check all party games for accidental porn references with someone who would know. Some things just won't die once they've made their way into party vocabulary.
  9. My house is awesome, but very small. Party in the summer on the party deck.

Numbers 6 and 8 are very, very true. But what do you give as Halloween prizes if not gooey, sticky, things that boys like to throw?

I have no idea what else to use as prizes. But finding eyeballs in random places and cleaning up after coke spills... ugh. Maybe fewer round things would be better.

and people will gather in the kitchen no matter what, even if it's the smallest room in the house.

Ooooh, good one. I'll never figure out the appeal of the kitchen. It's not like there's more in there or anything. And really, there's no where to sit. Must be the warmth of the refrigerator exhaust or something.

Did I leave my camera and black fuzzy cardigan at your house? I was a wee bit tipsy when I left.

Yes, yes you did. You'll get them Tuesday. Along with the crates o' decorations.

two things you need to include in the next one:

Fire and Keg stands!!!! :)

Um, no. To both. No burning down my house. Only fire in pumpkins or BBQs.
