Pour Your Heart Out - How old are we now?

Shell over at Things I Can't Say hosts - Pour Your Heart Out.

So as I mentioned here, my ten year high school reunion is coming up. The organizers did finally come to their senses and offer per event pricing. With the dinner being $60 a person that is still out of my price range with a baby on the way so I decided that we wouldn't be going. My decision was reaffirmed when I received an event invitation on Monday night to the "after-party."

Here is the actual invite (with names and addresses deleted of course!):

The party never stops during the Class of 2000 Reunion Weekend!

After the Prom Dinner/Dance at Daytona Beach Resort, come to the ***** House in Ormond for the after party on Saturday, July 31st.

The Prom doesn't end until 11, but the hosts will open their home at 9:30pm for the early birds. And don't worry, the party won't stop until the sun comes up!

Beer will be provided and there will be drinking games + a whole lot of ***** Rager fun! The ***** are asking for a $10 donation to help cover the costs of hosting this awesome party.

The party is open to everyone - that means Class of 2000, their friends, family, whoever feels like coming by for a good time. Hope to see everyone there! All the relevant info is below. If you have any questions, please FB message me.

WHAT: After-Prom Party at the *****
WHEN: Saturday, July 31st, 9:30pm-whenever
WHERE: ***************, Ormond Beach
WHY: Because ***** Ragers are legend.

I promise you - I am not making this up. I was actually invited to a rager with the promise of drinking games. At 27 years old, married, with a baby on the way. This is where I would ask "Seriously, are we still in high school?" but apparently some people have been waiting the past ten years to be in high school again. I will gladly pass on drinking beer, playing quarters and passing out on someone's floor. The sad part is this is pretty typical for my high school. A large portion of those that attended end up staying in town, partying, etc. Hearing about someone overdosing is common. I managed to avoid most of that in high school thanks to my dedication to gymnastics. Partying on Friday night just didn't sound appealing when you had an 8am practice on Saturday morning. 10 years later - it still doesn't sound very appealing when you will be 3.5 months preggo at that point and the smell of beer makes you want to hurl.

So, anyone want to go in my place and just report back all the juicy bits?

That sounds like some people I know from high school- they haven't changed much in 15 years. OMG, thank God that some of us DO change!

My 10 year reunion is this year also. The "popular" people are organizing it and they haven't realized that we graduated ten years ago, so they're all excited about beer pong too.

Wow, I guess some people never grow up. That invitation simultaneously cracked me up and made me a little sad for them. I have higher hopes for my class reunion in 3 years, but we shall see... ;-)

First of all, I love Blue. I'm kind of partial to pits and boxers. I really understand that smells will trigger off a disgusting sequence of events. I was usually nauseous for the first 6 months of pregnancy. I was miserable. But congrats! :0

When I went to my reunion it was like high school all over again. I'll pass on my next one.

Thanks for your comment! :) Congrats on your pregnancy too! Hope all is going well with you!

Tylaine said...

LOL yep some people never grow up! My dad is 63 and he'd definately go to something like that. It's sad but true.
And you wanna know what? I truly feel sorry for those people that like that sort of thing because they have no idea what they are missing with family and kids. That's truly where it's at!
I hope your pregnancy is going well. I'd be interested to hear :)

What in the whole wide world is a "rager?" As I was reading that description, I thought "that sounds like an awesome party, for like...high school kids." I'm guessing that you won't be missing much:)

Tammy said...

thanks for stopping by earlier and congrats on your little Jellybean :)

Adrienne said...

First of all! I live in Volusia County! Small world. :)

Second of all, that is CRAZY! I totally skipped my reunion(CO '96) in part to the same reason! Over priced, and under class. LOL

I'm so happy to know some people do grow up. Congrats on your pregnancy. :)
