A lex, x, x / April 16, 2004 8:21 AM

Me and my two boys. One whether he wants to or not, and the other...well, whether he wants to or not.

with bells on

I'll be sleeeeeeping. Parties frighten me -- especially when they have posters that look like this.

Gordon / April 16, 2004 9:31 AM

I am! I am! I am! I am! I am!

Ding ding.

Which party?

Andrew / April 16, 2004 11:00 AM

JF: ahem.

Cinnamon / April 16, 2004 11:18 AM

I'll be there. Especially if Daley is doing drag-queen makeovers.

Kevin / April 16, 2004 12:17 PM

I'll be there

amyc / April 16, 2004 12:45 PM

I'm in, provided I figure out my "two-truths-and-a-lie" thing.

pat / April 16, 2004 12:57 PM

each time there has been a GB party, i've had other inalterable plans. i think this time the coast is clear, and i'll be there with the better half.

suz / April 16, 2004 1:43 PM

i'll be there but my mom won't.

christian / April 16, 2004 2:51 PM

do i have to?

lacey / April 16, 2004 3:02 PM

I'll be there, and I'm bringing Suz's mom.

Were we the drunkenest people in the universe last night?


That was great. Used to be, I'd be the drunk one, but last night we were pretty much all soused. Heck, I didn't even make the top 3 in terms of drunk quotient.

And Wendy? What happens at Carol's, stays at Carol's.

Wendy / April 17, 2004 5:19 PM

I have no idea what you're talking about. NONE WHATSOEVER.

Kris / April 17, 2004 6:43 PM

Aw man, I missed out on the good stuff.

kelly / April 17, 2004 8:01 PM

good times last night, people. i haven't been that drunk in ages. it seems i left altogether too early, though.

Naz / April 18, 2004 12:20 AM

Carol's... oh man. I'm still reeling from that.

Craig / April 18, 2004 10:56 AM

Next time...

Jen / April 18, 2004 6:31 PM

Good times. Did people read things? I vaguely remember an opening rap tune and some brass ice cubes. Readings? Beer? I'm confused.
