Holy smokes that was a great party. Thanks to everyone who came out and reveled in the glow of our third anniversary ho-down, emphasis on 'ho.' By which I mean 'Sean.'
I'm about to post the movie (not quite done with the final scene, but hold your pants up, it's coming.) But I'll save that for it's own post. In the meantime, while I nurse a two-day hangover, let's collectively try to recall what the shit went down on Sunday.
8-9 pm: I wasn't there, so I have no idea. I assume it was a lot of quiet checking of watches and tapping of fingertips upon tabletops.
9-10: Craziness ensued as soon as I entered the building.This included Hip-Hop Charades, which was amazing.
10-11: POS went up against Andrea Swensson and some dude named Ander (rhymes with dander, although Sean kept insisting that it rhymes with launder) in a "This Is Your Life"-style showdown, which he lost spectacularly. He then took the stage with yours truly to dispense some truly indespensible romance advice, such as "get a bigger bed," "don't listen to my music while you're doing it," "Minneapolis fucking rocks," "dump your boyfriend," "if you're a girl I'll probably talk to you," "all you ladies who want me should probably just talk to Chuck instead" (I may have hallucinated that one), "I lost my virginity to Weezer's blue album," and most memorably, "If you want to pick up a girl at a trivia night, ask her, 'What's the best way to get you pregnant?'"
Then we asked a bunch of questions and showed the movie, which went over pretty well, I thought, especially considering I'd never actually watched the thing all the way through.
11-midnight: This is all a blur. Let's go to the photographic evidence:
Looks like Clip-On Ties won the coveted "brew-skis." I seem to recall a tiebreaker. According to my notes, they got 51 point. Congrats! Way to make up for losing that snowboard last year!
Coming in second and losing the tiebreaker (but winning the $25 bar tab) was Chauncy von Platypussy, featuring a framed photo of some devilishly handsome rake in a bow tie. They also got 51 points.
Coming in third, with a stellar 48 points: Pat Robertson, We Will Kill You!
Wait, I think Death Bag actually got third. They also had 48 points. Somebody help me out here.
Or maybe they had 47. I can't read my handwriting.
I know this for sure: I Like It got fifth place with 47 points. So I think I'm right about that Death Bag thing. Also, I Like It is pissed off. She wanted those skis, methinks.
Last and least, it's the former Ladybirds, rechristened Capt. Chauncy and the Fuck Thug Trio. Nice smoking, guys. Not such a nice score: 22 points.
And a couple of miscelaneous shots from the evening:
I like this one of Eric Blair. He's a helluva hip-hop charader, ain't he? Check out his group, No Bird Sing.
Alright, thanks again everybody. Trivia Mafia's fourth year will be even better, I promise. See you next week.
OH! That reminds me! Trivia starts after the Vikings game, so probably around 9 pm. Come celebrate a purple Superbowl with me.
