I Ain't No Rock Star No More

I think our 4th of July party was a success. It may take months to recover fully, but fun was had by all. We had about 80 people show up at various times throughout the day and the kids had great fun playing on the newest addition to our family:

Yeah, that is a Bonzai Sidewinder, the best water slide EVER!! Now we have that, a moonbounce, a fooseball table and a GoldenTee. Some of you may be thinking that we are trying to be cool, fancy pants parents, but you're wrong. With our fun house of treasures, we can ensure that our kids are always playing, thus freeing up our time to get fucked up and crazy.

After making enough food to feed the Ohio National Guard, I whipped up a 5 gallon batch of Sangria. Then I wrote my name on a cup and drank out of it ALL day. I don't care what I was doing, I kept that cup in one of my hands at all times. By the time most of the stragglers left and it was just a few close friends outside by the fire, I had rinsed out the lovely red cup of courage and refilled it with the Captain and Diet Coke that I had been hording from the crowd. I may have gotten a little paranoid by the end of the evening, but I was certain that "they" just knew where I had hidden my best friend the Captain and I kept checking to make sure he was still secreted away in his hidden cubby. Now I am paying for my day of fun and debauchery. Not with a headache or an upset stomach or shaky hands, but with a body full of gas. Holy shit am I ripping ass left and right. Mr. ADW tried to get a little frisky this morning and I told him that I had to fart instead. Yeah, I am sooo sexy.

By the way, the after party clean-up sucks donkey balls. I think next year, I am going to hire someone to help out so we don't have to do all of the work. And on top of it, I have BBS to thank for the fact that people now expect this party to happen once a year. You know, just a small intimate gathering with 50 - 100 of your closest friends and family. Super. Except for the part where it takes a week to get ready and another week to clean the fuck up afterwards. But at the end of the day, it was totally worth it.

I should have some pic posts coming up if I can figure out how to download from my stupid ass camera. Really. I think I am missing the strands of DNA that allow you to figure out camera downloads and how to hold a video recorder steady. Whatever.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and if we don't connect have a great Independence Day as well.

DAMN. I need to move closer to YOU...and I'm not sure if it's for the sangria or the water slide.

hee hee

Scary Monster said...

Me thinks you shoud have combined both booze and entertainment and made a sangria slide. Now that would make for some excitement.


Tug said...

You've been tagged...check it out at my place. ;-)

Glamourpuss said...

I want to come and play at your house.


Kim Ayres said...

Wow, it's not even 4th July yet. Does that mean you're talking about last year's 4th July and it lasted 362 days?


ADW said...

Tug - thanks for the tag - I recommented at your site

Monster - Hullo luv. That is a great idea. For Adult water slide time, I usually just pour a vat of extra virgin olive oil down the big slide and away we go, but your idea rocks as well.

Puss - you make it to the states and you got a place to stay. But you have to teach me pole dancing when you get here.

Sexy Pirate - well I am an all around party animal, but because of the shitastic placement of the 4th on a Wednesday this year, I ad my party a few days ahead of time.

Why did you bother writing your name on the cup if you didn't let it out of your hand?

I pulled a similar even Saturday night but it started at the Lizard and ended with just the wife and I and a fire. And a lot less beer in the fridge.

Lemme get this straight. You pour Diet Coke on your Captain Crunch cereal??! No wonder you were fucked up.

Legaleagle said...

Will you adopt me? My parents didn't even let me have a Nintendo.

Crunchy BC said...

"ADW tried to get a little frisky this morning and I told him that I had to fart instead"

The appropriate response is, "Can't we do both?"

ADW said...

Dyck - anything for a high

Eagle - I'll put your name in the hat as well

Crunchy - Um, eeewwww. Sharting yes, regular farts no. mkay?
