booze, booze, booze...

Since I know that nobody wants to hear about how my pocket Js got me wiped out in the freeroll at the BH last night when I went all-in preflop and was called by A2o, let's move on to another topic. Something not poker. Something a lot less thought-intensive.

Drinking. Imbibing. Sipping. Gulping. Chugging. However you ingest your alcohol. I'm writing this wishing I had a little already this morning. It would make debugging my ksh script a heck of a lot easier. Of course, the company doesn't see it that way.

I miss the old days of drinking... those days when we were in college and drinking was a daily occurrance, not just something that we do on rare occasions now. Where I went to college, the fraternities/sororities were all on campus along with four sets of apartments. Everything was within walking distance. I had friends in every fraternity so I was invited to the nightly parties they had there. I had a friend who lived with a couple of Rugby players, so I knew when their big parties were. Same thing with the swimming and hockey teams. Of course, you could never forget the end-of-year parties that always happened the weekend before finals.

I saw things at those parties that I'll probably never see again. A whole lot of naked sports - rollerblading, waterslides, volleyball, sledding... and it was usually the rugby guys leading the charge. The honoring of the Rugby Queen. Huge beer bongs. Someone had a 2-story beer bong... which was then filled with vodka and one of the big guys emptied it. (He passed out shortly after.) "Hot-tubbing" (baby pools filled with hot water) in the middle of snowstorms. Heck, I don't even remember half of the parties I went to. The crazier they were, the more fun we had.

Not to add any pressure to anyone, but I have high expections for Bradoween. Knowing the driving forces behind it, I can only imagine what I'm going to see. (BTW, CJ - the drunk-o-lympics must have dizzy-bat races!) Who knows... as long as the pictures don't end up on the internet porn sites... :-)

Ah, the days of no responsibility, spending the money on cheap beer, and having stories that would be retold again and again.

*sigh*

um...who needs a beer?
