So, xmas is over, people are all sitting around with nuttin to do…we all want to get out and have fun…well we did. Sorta… So Javier has been planning his party all week (perhaps longer too i think) anywho, the party comes down to the wire and everything is set but the location (duh!) but that works out and a hotel room is rented.
Colin, being old enough, take the money and buys the “stuff” as Nick calls it. Stuff of course, being alcohol. Nick, Javier, Jaime, Tristen, and Amy all get to the hotel and begin with the evening activities.
I went to the wrong hotel – damnit…went back home, called nick, got the RIGHT hotel, and then drove over. Anyway, I get there and every one has been drinking already – not for too long though I think. I enter and start, you know, talking and stuff. I don’t drink…yet.
After another bit, more drinking and talking and playing of games has happened. Jaime, by this time is drunk. She’s not bad, and isn’t drinking much more, but she is very dizy, tispy, and drunk. She’s quite funny though and it was amusing to see her so. Oh yeah, tristen is pretty out there by now to, but he’s still drinking.
The drink of choice for the evening was Smirnoff Ice. There was a (i think) 24 pack there. There was various other liqours too, but I can’t remeber/name all of them.
Anywho, clock rolls on a bit and Steven, Michelle and Leah show up. Now, Leah is nick’s current “love” interest. It’s odd though, sorta of a love-hate relationship. Sometimes they mesh perfectly, other times they don’t even look at each other. This turned out to be the latter type of night. They talked maybe 4 times and very breifly at that. Leah is against drinking (but not pot…odd) and was probably upset about nick drinking.
Jenga – this game can NOT be played with people who have been drinking. Period. Not only that, but this was the “truth or dare” jenga. And the middle blocks can be writen on to contain whatever you want. Two of the blocks were “Leah and Nick make out for 30 seconds”. This of course upset nick greatly because he didn’t want to be forced into it – and also probably cause he knew that Leah wasn’t going to go for it. All in all, we never made it around the circle of players twice before the tower fell. We played 3 games and gave up.
At about this point Michele and Leah left. This was not a happy parting. Steven left a little bit later.
Now the players are left:
- Amy: Most experienced drinker
- Colin and Javier: Seconds in line (Colin i think outranking, but not sure)
- Tristen and Jaime: Off in their own little world.
- Nick: having not had a whole lot, just a little giggly.
- Jeff: Hasn’t drank anything but orange juice.
Nick being (probably) upset about the Leah thing, or just being dumb, starts trying to drink himself under the table. Anyway, he’s going for this that, and then this again…twice. He drinks a lot, whether he says so or not. He and Amy are both drunk out of the minds (as per usual with Amy) but this time I actually think nick was the worst. True, he had not drank as much as many, but he was being affected the most, and being the most affected (meaning loud). At this point Nick and Amy go in the bathroom alone and have some heart to heart where she comes out crying. That’s just about the last time those two speak for the rest of the night.
So let’s figure out where we are. It’s now midnight. Jeff hasn’t had anything, colins in the corner feeling bad, Jaime and tristen are in their own world (still), amy is crying, nick is banging around falling over himself drunk and javier is playing referee. Whew.
Here’s my part. I promised at midnight I would drink. So I get some shots lined up…a sampler of sorts…yikes. I start with VODKA…oh my god. That shit burned SOOOOOO bad…but I got it down…ouch. THEN i was instucted to have the Gin…that was just to much for someone who has never drank and hadn’t been drinking. I run to the bathroom, keel over, and wait for the inevitable hurling to commence…and wait…and wait…but nothing comes – thank god. I get up and have about 3 glasses of water – quickly. After that I decied to go with something smoother and easier to take down. I get a smirnoff ice and begin on that. I make it through only one and a half (1.5) of them before I simply can’t pallete the taste at all anymore.
The only thing that happened to me was that I became very forward with things I said (as in the very first thing that came to mind came out) and I lost a little bit of co-ordination, but nothing serious.
If you’ve been keeping up with this journal, you know I am a mixed bag on drinking…it’s been a big issue in my life recently. Anyway, i have now at this point been on several sides of drinking. Including the have had some. Now, I wasn’t drunk by any means, but I could feel what was happening, and I don’t want to again. Mostly because aside from making me clumsy, alcohol (as i had suspected) didn’t do anything positive for me. All it really was doing was taking away co-ordination and making me say things forthright. I can say what’s on my mind without needing alcohol – so no more of that for me.
For Nick This is the point where I remind you that “I am right…about everything.”
Anyway! Whew…long story – and more to go!
Jeff Colin and tristen are sitting on the bed just chumming it together and talking, and at this point is when the heart to heart happens with Nick and Amy ( i think….it’s getting late and memory of the story will be blurrly ) anyway, javier is in full babysitter mode now for Nick because nick can’t hold himself up at all for his life. Nick and Javier spend the next 3 hours in the John with nick throwing up about once every 15 minutes(average). Anyway, i have been drinking so I neeed to peee….so I have to have colin hold the outside door open while i run out to hill to pee cause I don’t want to haul nick out of the bathroom cause I don’t want him to throw up in the room. Yeah…
Also at this point Jaime has regained her ability to walk straight…she was pretty much sobered up. So she’s helping out Javier with nick. Also, the time for Amy to passout has come and so shes out, i’m going to sleep, colins asleep, and at about 3 o’clock nick comes out, lays down and gets some z’s. We wake at about 7/8 oclock, rouse about for a bit and I came home at 9/10ish today.
So there you have it….oh yeah, famous quotes while drinking:
Throwing up “Jeff, you have to try this, it’s soo fun!” -Amy
In the toilet “WAIT! JUST GIVE ME A MINUTE! WAIT!! WWAAAIIIITTT!!!!!” -Nick
The End……more to come???
