Bowling last night was tons o' fun. First off, my husband and I had a friend over for dinner before bowling and he brought along a 12 pack of delicious Bud Light, so the 3 of us had a few beers with dinner. Thus, when we arrived at the alley, I was already comfortably buzzed.

And that's why my game peaked in game 1. I had just the right amount of alcohol for that first game (it has to be enough to make me loose and relaxed, but not so much that I can't stand up straight) and I did well, but then it went downhill -- because I kept drinking. Game two hated me and game three was slightly better but was still embarassing. Our team totally lost all points and I'm sure our ranking is going to dip down to the bottom numbers now (we're not so hot this season).

Above pic: Me enjoying my beer in a sensible manner, and no, I don't take regular pictures: What fun is a picture without my tongue hanging out the side or my eye cocked? Below pic: Erin and I. Well, mostly me. I kinda edged Erin outta the pic.

But, bowling is only half of the Thursday night experience, so the loss didn't really affect us too much, and after we finished, we were all congregating by our last two teams playing, eating corn dogs (I scarfed down two and I wonder why I can't lose those 5 lbs), drinking the last of our beer, and chatting. For some reason, no one was really ready to go home, so I suggested we all go back to our place.

The drinking continued at our (newly finished) house, and people played Guitar Hero on the Xbox. Either the Gutar Hero or the drinking kept people around longer than normal, and it was 1 am before everyone left, which is a perfectly acceptable hour on a weekend, but for a work night, it's kinda late. Not a problem for me b/c I don't have classes on Friday, but my husband was a little slow this morning getting ready for work, poor fella.

All in all, it was good times, good times. I maybe over-hugged some people, but on the whole it was the right amount of fun without the "after drunk guilt." That's two thumbs up in my book.

ROFL! That looks like tons of fun :-) I'd been missing those shots with the beer. Thanks! I remember when I used to be able to get a buzz off of Bud Light... Wait... No I don't LOL.

I'm glad someone else plays guitar hero other than me. My wife tells me that I'm not her guitar hero and I wonder what she means by that.

I have a "let's take a picture" friend that always pushes everyone else out of the picture. How does it work if two people like that are in the same room? Do you bowl year-round, if not, I think you should.
