Photos: End of Aught Eight

~ This is assuredly the last set from 2008, New Year's Eve. An old friend invited me to his formal party in Indy. So, I put on my best suit, picked up my best girl, and had the best time.

This is me looking spiffy with my date. As much as pride myself on my mingling skills, I hardly talked to anyone else the whole night.Photo Credit: Karmen

Formal dress was about the only special formality witnessed that evening. Otherwise, it was a typical party, drinking games and all. This one is Anchor Man. Teams bounce coins into a pitcher of beer. The team that successfully deposits their money first wins. The losers have to drink down the pitcher in one gulp per player. Don't choke on the change.

The extra member of our couple is the host. We worked together in Muncie before he moved to Indy. He always threw the best parties -and still does.Photo Credit: Karmen

Um... hey... that's my date. It must be the tie around the head.Photo Credit: Karmen

The guy dancing with my date was a riot. He's the guy every party ought to have, the guy with the fun and comical moves, the life of the dance floor.

These pretty partiers are all tuckered out. Good thing there was a big comfy chair in which they could peacefully slumber, undisturbed.

Well, undisturbed wasn't likely to last, especially if you're dating a wild and crazy guy like the girl in the blue dress.

Their best Zulander impressions. I had a great time. Thanks guys. For 2009 I think it's time I throw one of my own outrageous New Year's Eve parties again. Get yourselves ready.

Photos: Birthday Pretext

~ The following photos are from a party I attended in November 2008. It was a party my friends in Fort Wayne held. I believe the pretext was a birthday, not that parties need one.

The drunk chick on the left, my ex, hit it off fabulously with the drunk chick on the right, Liz. My ex drank way too much and I said it's because she's too small to keep pace with Liz. The hosts said, "Liz can't keep up with Liz."

Here's Liz relying on her beer pong partner not only to carry the game, but to keep her vertical as well.

That's me in the back on the left. That's the Captain in the front and center, or maybe he just has some Captain in him.Photo Credit: Karmen

I believe the birthday girl was about to get her birthday spankings from her husband, but she ended up with a painful looking wedgie instaed.

I don't know how this got started. I'm just glad I wasn't the butt of this joke.

Hilarious.Photo Credit: Karmen

On the way home the next morning. I saw this cloud which I thought looked like a dragon's head. It was more convincing at first sight, but it takes a while to get out the camera, wait for the trees to get out of the way, etc.

Photos: Karmen

~ I am way behind on photo sharing. Here is the first installment of updates. These were taken in November of 2008.

The lovely woman trying to brush her hair here is the mysterious girlfriend I've been claiming to have these last 5 months.

You may have asked yourself, "Why hasn't he changed his profile pics to couple shots?" or "Why hasn't he made a blog about her?" The truth is I like to keep my current love life private. Sadly, we are no longer current.

These are from one of our first dates together last fall. We went to the Oakhurst Gardens and wondered about.

Her name is Karmen. Her nickname is Karmen the Magnificent.

This little girl is part of a fountain at the Oakhurst Gardens. She's showing her darker side today, consorting with spiders.

We caught a gnome spying on us. I'd say this is a rare photo, but from the looks of his house I'd guess he's appeared on TLC's "Trading Spaces".

I much prefer the construction of this little house to that of the gnome's. This building's purpose appears to be for holding pretend tea parties. It's full of dolls and a tiny tea set.

These are residents of the koi pond and some spittle courtesy of Karmen.

Here's a video of Karmen tormenting koi. I don't really think she's a jerk, but the fish do.
