My "Bachelor Party"

I hinted the other day that I went to my bachelor party on Sunday. Well, that's not exactly right. It was a BBQ at a friend's house. And it was in no way about my bachelorhood. But it's the closest I'm gonna get, and I'm okay with that.

So, Sunday I went over to to a cook out at my buddies, Howard & KC's place. KC's childhood friend, Kelly & her husband, Chuck. (Howard and I used to work together, and now have basically the same job at different companies. KC is the ex-roommate of an ex-co-worker. They met @ my housewarming party.) I've known everybody here for 5 or 6 years.

After a couple strong rum and 7up's the pork burgers hit the grill.

The happy couple

We hung out on the back deck for a while, talking, laughing, and having a good time. And 'Yes', that's a Cabbage Patch doll.


Then, it became time to make for S'mores. They had the largest marshmallows I had ever seen. They were the size of a Kelly's fist!

Getting toasted.

And not all the marshmallows made it into the S'mores.

Open wide and say, "Ahhhh"After calming down from the sugar rush, we broke out the game of 'Encore'. The basic gist of the game is that you split into teams (girls vs. guys) and then you roll a die and move around a board. Based on the color you land on, you draw a card and get a word off it. Then, the teams take turns going back and forth singing a song with the word in it until one team is stumped.

Eventually, I needed to go home, so we did a "lightening round" and the gals won.

Hanging out with good friends, good laughs, good times. Isn't that what a bachelor party is supposed to be?

Note: Over the weekend, I will probably be taking SCOPE-TECH private for a day or so. DON'T PANIC! While I am busy getting my physical house ready for my new life, I'm going to take some breaks and redesign the blog, too.

Nothing too radical, but while I'm moving things around, I'd rather not have people see it all messy.

Gotta get the place looking nice for all those wedding pictures I'll be posting soon.

I've seen those marshmallows in the store. Heavy little suckers, aren't they?

Looks like it was a fun bbq! :-)I've got my bridal shower tonight. My daughter and mom were cooking up something for it that made them extremely giggly.... aaaaaaaand that made me a wee bit apprehensive. What I'm going to be subjected to, I have no idea....

Those marshmellows look like they could kill a person if you didn't eat them slowly. lol!

Looking forward to the revamped blog! Did you have anything to do with Cora's new look? I have a feeling you had some input as to her 'pic'. Sexy mama! Literally!

Well, Eric...had I known it was going to count as your bacheor party I would've at least flashed you. (Sorry Cora!)

Well it appears that a good time was had by all! Keep up the partying and the fun all the way through the marriage! Love the countdown clock!

That's the kind of party that is a great time, much more memorable than the idiotic get drunk till you hurl variety!

You are so cute! I can't wait to see the new bloggy digs. And those wedding pics!

Surely the rum and 7 up's led to at least 1 stripper. I understand why you wouldn't want that picture posted though.
