  • Wedding: December 2015

I have a tie.

First: NYE party a few years ago that turned out to not be a party at all.  There were maybe 10 of us.  No music, no decorations, no drinks besides wine (which is fine, but where was the champagne?  What about beer?).  No countdown – I had to look it up on my phone and do it for the group.  Just, not a good time.

Second: This was supposed to be a fun reunion, but when we showed up, everyone was in sports coats and business attire on a Saturday.  No thanks.  Lots of fancy finger foods, but no beer??  No music.  Lots of schmoozing.  It felt like a work event and I hated it!  I got out of there quickly.

Yikes. I always think in situations like that that they must have had a huge fight right before starting to get ready and then were too mad to actually get anything together. I mean, why else, right?

The worst party I’ve ever been to was when I visited a friend at a University in Boston. I wasn’t used to the “frat life”, so maybe it was just a matter of style. But what was theoretically supposed to be a fun frat party was maybe around 10-15 people in jerseys watching basketball. Some girls were doing something that got out of hand (don’t think I saw what, why or how) and the guys who lived there kicked them out, telling them to come back when they’ve “learned how to drink”. Nothing too horrible but I can say it was disappointing.

soontobeMrsBoo:  I went to a 4 hour long bridal shower. The bride, bless her heart, felt the need to go into an Oscar worthy speech (complete with tears) after opening each individual gift. Seriously you made your own registry, you don’t have to pretend to be surprised at the gifts you received. My 2 friends and I couldn’t wait to get the hell out of there.

Oh no – worst party was one I helped throw, now that I remember it. It was supposed to be in honor of one of our work colleagues, but this friend of mine at the time proposed we hosted it at her place. It turned out to be a mix of really normal, beer drinking coworkers of mine and privileged Philippina expat women/drag queens who hadn’t thought to buy beer. I still bury my head ostrich-style thinking of it.

  • Wedding: May 2015 - Antique Rose Emporium

This year’s Coworker Halloween party was held at my house.  ____ and myself are the two managers. ____ is in her third trimester of pregnancy. ____ kept taking shots. Drinking my wine I had poured for myself, when I wasn’t looking. She got wasted…talk about white trash. I wanted to make a thread on WB about it actually, but it kept coming out REALLY long. Anyway, she has a huge baby bump and everyone was watching her take shots and didn’t say a word bc she is the big boss everyone’s intimidated by…well, I’m not afraid of her, so I told her to go home. She didn’t take it well.

Oh, also at this same party, at one point a couple of the girls’ boyfriends/husbands disappeared. They were smoking pot in my backyard and one of them had a gun out and was talking about shooting off my fiance’s foot for telling them to stop smoking.

We keep it classy, as you can see.
