i vow this will not happen again until next year marks the beginning of the craziest, wildest summer we’re going to have. PARTY ON!!!!!!!!!!! last but not least, thank you every single one of you who were there to celebrate my birthday. i had so much fun, let’s do it again next time (minus me getting pissed-fucking-drunk, of course.) i do intend to finish my third game… *grin*.
[Ed.] I can’t decide whether I should be shuddering or laughing my ass off reading this old post. I’ve likely that I’ve gotten a very early head start in the drinking and partying department than most of you who are reading this now. I believe this was one of the last times I blacked out from being pissed-effin’-drunk. Ten years later, my birthday celebrations these days have became much much more genteel.
One very hilarious story that had to do with this eventful evening: I was throwing up in the bathroom while my friend Tina was attending to me, making sure I didn’t end up sprawled on the bathroom floor or hurt myself. As I was hurling, she passed me some paper napkins to clean myself up but instead I used it to wipe the toilet bowls. LOL, *OCD* max! In my drunken stupor, I could hear her muffled laughter because it’s always been in my nature to clean up wherever I go. Funny that even as a drunk, I was considerately cleaning up the mess I left behind. In Tina’s words: “Only you would do something like that!”. Bwahahaha. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry about this.
