Jamie and I didn't have any real plans for New Year's Eve. We decided to hang out with my brother and SIL because they were going to just sit at home. We figured we can bring the dog and sit at their place with them, have a few drinks and spend the night. We brought along Khuno and some drinks and made the trek over to the other end of the city. Our supper consisted of pizza, cheesy chicken macaroni and ribs. I was totally meated out. A quiet night turned out to be quite the party as a few of their friends decided to come to the "party" house. After supper we played a game called...Ping Pong? I have no idea... Basically you split up into two teams and take turns trying to throw ping pong balls into the other team's cups. If you get the ball in, the person you were up against has to drink and the cup gets taken away. Once all cups are taken away, the losing team has to drink.
Then we decided to play Power Hour. A very simple game. All you do is take a shot of beer every minute for an hour. I don't think I've ever lasted more than 20 minutes but this was a special occasion. I had to bail out at 34 minutes. The timer I'm holding was counting down from 60 minutes but I started it 2 minutes late. The buy out option if you were to bail out is 2 shots of vodka for girls and 3 for boys. Cynthia was smart and bought out early. I wasn't as smart. Nor was Jamie.
Then we decided to play a game called Flippy Cup. I have no pictures of this intense game. You split off into two teams and it's a relay of drinking. You gulp your drink and "flip" your cup until it stands on the wide end. Then the next person starts. The team that finishes first wins and of course, the losing one drinks.
Then we decided to play Kinect on the Xbox? The game where you're the controller. And lastly we busted out some good old Ride The Bus. It's a bit lengthy to describe but when Rob asked me what does "Ride the bus" mean... I told him, "You basically die a little bit if you ride the bus." He understood why after one round.
Hopefully everyone had a Happy New Year. May your resolutions work out and you're happy and healthy this upcoming year.
