Being Appreciated for My Talents

Let’s talk about how I’m practically a celebrity. Buying crap I can’t afford? Check. Wallin’ out when Taco Bell gets my order wrong? Check (I mean, how hard is it to sub nachos for that soft taco? I ask every time and 60% of the time it’s wrong every time). Being nominated for awards? Check.

Steph over at Bourbon and Glitter has been around these parts long enough to know that I’m a hot mess pretty much a champ at holding my liquor. So she slapped me w/ this: 

Translated this means Drunk (in French) + I added the ending 'ster' (because we are a classy bunch and French is classy)

Acknowledge who nominated you
Answer the 10 questions listed below
Nominate 10 bloggers you think are excellent drinkers
You can't nominate the blog that nominated you
Don't make any more questions, everyone just answer these questions below
If you are nominated, just answer the questions and nominate 10 more people. That is it.

Now, let's get to it, shall we?

What is your favorite drinking game and why?
I used to looooooove asshole. In college when my friends wanted the more creative games like baseball and never-have-I-ever, I was trying to bribe everyone into this good ol’ fashioned card game. Because I was the best and would be president three times in a row and get to make up rules. That’s when things really get fun.

It’s your birthday, what’s your idea of the perfect evening?
Pregaming w/ Brent and my sisters while watching a bad Lifetime/ B-movie we can simultaneously make fun of and make into a drinking game, while muting it at commercials to have one-song dance parties. Then meeting a bunch of friends out at a bar w/ a live band and owning the dance floor. The night would end w/ a stop at some breakfast buffet (I don’t know of such place, but this my fantasy right?) where I could eat all the bacon and French toast my drunk ass desires. 

Money is no object, what is your go to drink of choice at a bar?
Blue Moon is my drink of choice at any bar, sorry to be boring. If money is no object though, you can bet I’m ordering shots shots shots shots shots shots. Whatever the majority of the group wants, or whatever the bartender recommends; as long as it’s not tequila. 

How many times have you played the game Edward 40-hands?
I could probably count the times on one hand; drinking warm beer isn’t my cup of tea. Since I’m not great at chugging (unless it’s a car bomb), my 40’s would always lose their frostiness. And I have to pee waaaay to much to have my hands restricted like that. 

Take this alcohol screening quiz here, what score did you receive?
Alcoholism Screening Quiz 
You answered 4 items out of 20 Yes.

Your score is 20%. According to the Office of Health Care Programs, Johns Hopkins University Hospital, developers of this screening quiz, if you answered 3 of these questions with a Yes it is a definite sign that your drinking patterns are harmful and possibly considered alcohol dependent or alcoholic. You may want to seek an evaluation by a healthcare professional.

Suck on that, Johns Hopkins. Now, if I was answering these questions five years ago, well that’s another story. But honestly, who doesn’t have memory loss from drinking, or drink to feel comfortable when you don’t know anyone? That’s just common sense. 

What is your favorite memory w/ alcohol?
That’s like asking me to pick my favorite song in The Little Mermaid. I’ll just take the easy way out and dump a bunch of party pictures.

What is your favorite song about drinking? Or song to drink to?
Hmm, another tough one. Anything I can sing along w/ obnoxiously, at the top of my lungs. Or shake it to on the dance floor. If I had to make a playlist, “I Wanna Dance w/ Somebody,” “99 Problems” “Living on a Prayer,” “Gold Digger” and “Sexy Back” would round out the top five songs. 

What is your favorite activity to do while drinking (ie: bowling, boating, golf, trivia, etc).
Honestly? Eating. Shocker. 

In your opinion, which is the number one party school in the country and why?
Oswego State all the way. I’m not just being biased, barstool sports thinks so, too.

When do you know when you’ve had too much to drink? What are your signals?
I’ve been told my voice gets a little…shrilly. Not that I believe it. Okay, maybe I do. I distinctly remember being in a hotel room pregaming and getting ready w/ my sisters and asking Maureen if my eye makeup was even. She looked at me in the mirror and said “I can’t understand a word you just said.” A dog probably couldn’t have picked up that pitch.

Thanks, Steph, this was a lot of fun! And if you’re reading, consider yourself nominated!

I KNEW you'd have some fab answers and photos for this. I'm especially proud of that Cubs shirt! And is that a graffiti bar crawl shirt I see? Win.
Brigid said…
I thought you'd like that Cubs pic; that was quite the magical day at Wrigley. And by magical I mean hammered.
Sarah said…
I like how in 60% of your pictures, my GWA makes it in every time.
Michele said…
Wow... I must be really lame because I only had 1 of the 20 questions as a yes! But at least I'm not an alchie!!!
Malory said…
Oftentimes, I get excited to go out drinking because I know I'm gonna eat all kinds of deliciousness after the bar. In private. Because no one needs to see that happen.

On a separate note - why did I say oftentimes?
Brigid said…
@Sarah: the GWA is practically the fifth sister at these things

@Michele: you're not lame, you're actually a real, live adult ; ) I sometimes wonder what that's like...

@Malory: I used to be all about the private booze-induced eating. Know what's even better? Rubbing your food in all your friends faces. I'm clearly a real treat to drink w/
