Strange Parties Rule!

Tuesday, January 17, 2006

Ok, so this weekend Big Mike and I took a road trip up north to Bemidji (or as I call it, Brrrrrmidji). Yeah that's right, I come back from the sunny beaches of Puerto Rico and then proceed to travel north, further into the cold. I clearly have issues. heh.

Anyway, we headed up there and the plan was to have a small party at D's place on Friday night with scary movies involved since it was Friday the 13th. Unfortunately most of the female contingent that were invited dropped out so that was a bummer. A little ways into the night, one of the guys there with his girlfriend gets a call from some girl looking for a party, and invites them over. We found out after he invited them that he only sorta knew the girl from the bars, but didn't really remember her. heh. So her and 5 friends show up, hang out for a little bit, and then head out after the drunk guy in the group gets a call from someone and gets agitated. The kinda sorta known girls sticks around for the rest of the movie though. So Friday's party became known as the party of random people.

Not to be outdone though, Saturday had a very eventful night in store for us as well. During the day we decided to be power nerds and played Star Wars Risk. Yeah, that's right, not just risk, Star Wars Risk. And because we had to ensure the complete conversion to the geek side of the force, we had the original Star Wars trilogy playing in the background. I'm pretty sure and geekiness meters pointed toward us would have imploded due to overload. Yes, imploded, exploding jsut wouldn't be geeky enough. So later we had to counter that by doing something non-geeky: drinking and gambling. We headed to one of D's co-worker's place for a party with family and friends. We hung out chatting for a while, then someone suggested they start up a Texas Hold'em Poker tourney. Out came the cards and the chips. The first go round had 12 people so we got two tables going, consolidating down to one once we got to 8 people. I almost opted out since I had never played for money against people before (it was a $5 buy in), but decided to give it a try. My best hand the whole game was Queen Six suited. I bluffed out a couple pots and managed to make it up to fifth before being drained by the blinds. Not bad for a first try.

Seven of the people from the main table (including me) of the first round decided to have a second game. The winner of the first round, a stereotypical redneck, was the first to go out and the girl who finished second to him, a city girl who also happens to be a competitive boxer, was getting pretty lucky. Little did we know these two would become the Main Bout later on. Sometime during the second game the shots started flowing, which The Boxer had avoided earlier stating she would "need a babysitter." Apparently, that actually meant referee. The game continued and eventually the cards turned for me and I got a good bluff and a couple good hands which I slow played to perfection. It came down to me and The Boxer, the flop was two aces and a 6, and she slow played the first round to keep me in. The turn was a King, and she bet pretty big but I came back and reraised to put her all in. She had ace ten, but unfortunately for her I was holding pocket Kings. The result:

That's right, The Chief took out the boxer with a full boat and for the first time ever won money gambling. Yay me.

So game three was organized. At this point The Boxer had been getting pretty chippy, several times challenging guys to go outside and box. And when I say challenging, I don't mean the teasing kind of challenge, I mean she wanted to fight. Well the game starts up and one person is eliminated right away. At about hand five, I must have missed it, but I'm pretty sure a bell rang. Ding Ding Ding. Redneck: "I got a pair of nigger kings." Now, usually in a situation like this it calls for a cringe-move-on. Not for The Boxer. Turns out her ex is black and she's apparently touchy about the subject. She verbally let loose on him, and unfortunately instead of apologizing, he tried to justify what he said. When handfuls for chips (they're the nice, heavy casino style ones by the way) started flying I decided I didn't want to be seated directly between them and that we needed backup and called in the troops. Eventually something was said that pissed off The Redneck's wife as well and she went after The Boxer. Someone blocked The Boxer downstairs (she was pounding on the door) but they got them separated before it came to blows.

Crazy night indeed. I think there was enough evil floating in the air that I got possessed too. When we got home from the party we tossed in The 40 Year Old Virgin and I proceeded to pass out and "snore demonic-ly" as I was told the next day. Apparently it was just like the dog in Little Nicky: A deep snore followed by exhaling that sounds like demonic chanting. I'm usually not much of a snorer, but this was apparently enough that Big Mike even had to sleep on the floor in a different room instead of the other couch. heh. I wish they had a recording :O)

Anyway, so that, combined with watching The Bears lose on Sunday was my weekend. Hope you all had a good weekend and are having a good week! Keep slackin!
