My roommates & I need to relax

It has become quite apparent that my roomates and I need to take it easy.  We need to squash the  Sunday Fundays in the immediate future, because it is clear that we are killing brain cells each and every weekend.

Every single Monday night, without fail, we have the same conversation..

So picture us sitting in our living room, watching Dancing with the Stars.  Obviously, while watching such a quality show some really burning questions come up. 

1) What race is Rick Fox anway?

2) Hey is Rick Fox Dating Eliza Dushku?

3) How old is Jennifer Grey anyways?

and my favorite, that comes up during the Activia commercials

4) Isn't that Sigourney Weaver?

Yeah, I get it why would we ever remember answers to such trivial and obscure questions?  And, if you have deep and powerful thoughts like Beej, Smellin' and I you are racking your braining thinking:

How the heck do you tell the difference between Susan Sarandon, Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver anyway???

I guess why I'm so concerned for our well-being (and what makes us so pathetic) is that a mere 7 days have passed each week we asked each and every one of those questions. And we're pushing week 6 of the show. 

SO perhaps if I write down the answers to these burning questions, my roomates and I can quickly reference my blog instead of hemming and hawing (and eventuallly googling) the answers.

Drumroll please...

1) Rick Fox is Bahamian and Italian Canadian (eh?)

2) Yes he's dating Eliza Dushku, that's why she's in the audience and he kissed her after he danced.  Yes that pretty young girl next her is typically his daughter, and yes it's his daughter with Vanessa Williams (p.s. Rick Fox has still got it).

3) Jennifer Grey is 50, and of course she got a nose job, duhh.

and finally

4) No that is not Sigourney Weaver.  It's Jamie Lee Curtis.

For future reference (and based on my own little mind...):

Sigourney Weaver: Copycat, Dave, Avatar

Susan Sarandon: Stepmom, Dead man walking, Thelma & Louise

Jamie Lee Curtis: Halloween, Freaky Friday, Activia

Why Am I single?

Q: Why am I single?

A: I was almost partying for 24 hours, straight.

Last weekend, BC was playing Virginia Tech.  On Friday, I was well aware of the fact that the game started at high nooon on Saturday, but of course that didn't stop me from going to reggae night at the local watering hole.

At the bar, I realized that I was not with "my people". I weasled my way up to order a drink and two girls from college tagged along so I could order for them.  No prob, typically.,,,

I grab the bartender's attention and turn to the girls, the following interaction occured:

Girl #1: Stoli O and soda
Girl #2: Crowne & Ginger
Me: uhhh I'll have a Stoli O & Soda, a Crowne and Ginger, and a Coors Light draft.

Yeah, because that's just the way I roll.

Regardless this was not the big event, the 24 bender, but just was just the start of it.

Saturday AM
7:15 a.m. - WOS
7:30 a.m. - shower
7:45 a.m. - WTF do I wear??

On that note, WTF do I wear? I had sent all of my summer clothes home with @mocarey earlier in the week.  FML right? It was already around 80 degrees.  I found some random cotton skirt and rummaged in my roommates closet for a nice flowy top (yeah she's a hipster).  All I could find was an orange top.

Oopsies.  Sorry BC...I must have been the kiss of death.

8:30 a.m. - Mr. & Mrs. (Moose & Sticky) pick my sorry ass up to go to the game
8:51 a.m. - Mimosa #1 (which led to 2, 3 and maybe 4) 
10:40 a.m. - Heading to go get tickets @ another tailgate, Moose tells me to finish my beer.  I go to chug it.

Me: When did I start drinking a budweiser???

FFW to after the game

4:30 p.m. outside the porto potties

Kid my age: Excuse me m'am, are you waiting for one of these?
Me (possibly belligerant): M'AM? M'AM??? I'M 24  AND A HALF!!!
see my "i hate 'video'"
5:?? p.m.  I jump on the BC bus to meet Moose at the bar

I arrive in the basement of the bar to a ginormous game of flip cup.  I immediately join Moose's team. At some point after a half hour or so, some dweebo gets the bill and starts hitting up Moose & her friends for $, even though they had their own tab. 

Confrontation immediately ensues.  Moose is arguing, the dweebo goes to walk away and calls her a bitch.

Dweebo: uhh no....

Easily the quote of the year.

While this argument over who paid/should pay for the beer is going on,

Someone is stealing dweebos money out of the bill.. And I figure, if they are going to argue over the beer, I'm going to drink it.

I proceed to play 1 v. 1 flip cup for the next half hour with Moose's classmates.

The cab ride home is hazy and eventually I'm pretty sure I swiped my card and told the cab driver to "put it on my tab".

8:00 p.m. - uknown food is consumed
8:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. - NAP
11:00 p.m. - tap tap tap from the roommate

Roommate: Heyyy popprincess? Wanna go out?
Me: uhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhh let me go change

Off to the bar we go.  We didn't get into the bar until just after midnight.  The following day Moose had me recap all the drinks I had on "Sunday".  Which includes the following that was imbibed:

"Well, I got a miller lite when we got there, then someone bought me a lemon drop shot, and a bud light, then I got a coors light draft and then that same someone got me a red headed slut and a corona, and I'm pretty sure there was another coors light draft in there.....and this was all in like a matter of 2 hours"

Moose: I don't think you were there for two hours. 

Then, once arriving home for the "after party" which involved eating a ton of chinese food. A little family dinner @ 3:30 AM never hurt anyone.

And to end the night, we analyzed one of our friends love lives see below.

5:00 a.m. - I went to bed

I'm pretty sure I should have just stuck it out until 8:51 a.m. - and then I would have come full circle in 24 hours of partying. 

There's always next time.
