Classy Ways to Ring in 2010

7 Jan

I went to DC for New Year’s Eve this year with about 40 of my closest friends and maybe 4,589 acquaintances. I use the term lightly, but I’m sure you get the point. Anyway, it was a really classy celebration. Here’s why:

  • The strap on my $14 dress from Charlotte Russe unraveled a bit after midnight.
  • I sent a friend to get “something to fix it.” He came back with a long strip of duct tape.
  • Third Eye Blind was the headlining band. What’s up, 1997?
  • Did I mention Stephan Jenkins is 45 years old?
  • Twin fell on the dance floor and proceeded to sit there, sprawled out and sipping a beer, for about 5 minutes.
  • Frere made out with one of C’s sorority sisters from college. Who totally predatored him. Cougar alert!
  • I made out briefly with some rando in a sweater vest with my dress duct-taped together. I don’t have an actual memory of this, I just know it happened.
  • There was a guy present in one of those full-body suits of the spandex variety. You know, the kind that covers your face, too. It was neon green.
  • (He was definitely really ugly under that suit.)
  • The bartenders let us double fist all night.
  • After prowling the streets for about 20 minutes, seven of us blatantly stole a cab from a couple sitting on the curb, who’d apparently been waiting an hour. Oops.
  • Back at home, frozen pierogies were fried up for late-night snacks. Many were still cold in the middle. We ate them anyway.
  • A large group of us then proceeded to collapse into a pile on a twin-size air mattress and pass out that way. Voluntarily.

As you can see, 2010 is already off to an amazing start. Upcoming adventures (read: more blog posts! yay!) include: skiing in the Poconos this weekend, MLK weekend (Beerlympics/Mama Bird visits!), and the inevitable Crazy Trip to California.

    The guy in the green spandex was Green Man, a la It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnC9y0SGqvA&feature=related
    Hope that solves one mystery from your night. :)

    Fixing a dress with duct tape is very classy.
