Chandler’s Graduation Party

Hey, Ross, quick question for ya. Are you ready to party?                                                                                                                                                  Ross: I don’t know, I could maybe go out for a couple of beers, but there’s this thing about bumblebees on The Discovery Channel that I was planning to watch.                                                                                                                                                                                                   Chandler: No-no, I don’t think you heard me. Are you ready to party?! –Friends

Passing out drunk is better than taking the best sleeping pill. That sound sleep you get where you literally don’t move all night is awesome. That is of course until you wake up with a splitting headache and you’re so dizzy you almost can’t find your way to the bathroom across the hall. Ouch. Match and I were suffering from both symptoms on Sunday morning. It was painful, but a small price to pay for the fun we had celebrating with Chandler and our friends at his college graduation party.

We started drinking in the afternoon, and Match’s famous last words were that “we wouldn’t be staying late because I’m not feeling well.” That was true, he’d even called in sick to work. Then Tahoe Guy took this as a challenge to get Match as drunk as possible, to “keep him honest”. We started out slow with just a champagne toast to Chandler. That led to Community Cup, which led to one of the most fun games of flip cup, where Chandler’s Dad actually got in on the action.

After a few games of flip cup, a really funny victory dance, and a LOT of smack talk, we drunkenly stumbled over to one of Chandler’s friend’s house down the street for more drinking games. Match found a chin up bar which he just had to climb up and use.

The rest of the night was kind of blurry but towards the end of it a few things happened. First, Token Gay Guy decided to flash his wenis at Single Girl, much to her horror and our drunken amusement. Don’t worry he didn’t show the whole thing!

After that I snuggled up next to Match and got all ready to pass out. Or bite him…I’m not really sure. I’m piecing all of this together from the photos I looked through in the morning.

I guess about the time I got comfortable, everyone else got in on the act, and before you knew it, there was a full on group dog pile, with Chandler jumping on the top.

Match, Me, Tahoe Couple, Chandler on top of everyone, Token Gay Guys, and Single Girl. We’re just missing Monica. I think we’ll have to recreate this picture when she gets home from Scotland next month.

Match and I were talking about this group of friends after the party, and how if they all lived here we’d probably hang out almost as much as the cast did on the show Friends. Every time we get together it’s like no time has passed and we all have such a good time. Tahoe Couple are actually moving to San Francisco so we’ll only be a short car ride away. Single Girl is talking about moving to SF from Santa Cruz soon, and Token Gay Couple live just 30 minutes from us. Chandler’s fiancee is moving home from Scotland soon and the whole gang will be back together again! There’s already talk of a big party when she gets home. I think I may have to go easy on the drinking games. We may all act like we’re still in college when we hang out, but we do NOT bounce back as quickly. Match and I were both pretty much useless all of Sunday. Chandler sent out a mass text the next day that just said, “My head hurts.” Match wrote back and said, “All of me hurts.”

Do you have a group like this? A group of old friends that whenever you get together it’s just like old times? When’s the last time you played flip cup? What are your hang over remedies? Mine are sunbathing, walking to sweat it off, followed by lounging in front of the tv and lots and lots of junk food.

    HAHA you guys went wild!!! My hangover PREVENTION is to take a vitamin with a glass of water before I go to sleep, and guzzle a vitamin water around 5am and then sleep for another few hours. I always feel soo much better when I wake up.

    Flip cup is so fun but I can’t stand beer! One night my friend C. and I were both sick, but wanted to play with the boys, so we used teeny amounts of vodka and vitamin water in our cups haha! Bad decisions.

    Hangover cure: i drink a bottle of gatorade/powerade and eat a handful of crackers (good quality ones which seem to soak up excess alcohol). then i shower and drink a coffee. I usually feel more human after that.

    hahaha love it!! Yep, I am lucky and proud to say that I have a group of friends like this. When we get together we drink as if we were still in college and the next day I feel like I want to crawl under a rock. lol gotta love flip cup. We usually play guys vs. girls and it can get a little heated. lol And as far as hangover remedy, I try to eat pretzels before i go to bed to soak up some the alcohol…. it helps….. sometimes…… ok maybe it just cures my drunken munchies lol 😉
