This takes me back so many years it almost feels like another life. As I’ve said before as a freshman in college my boyfriend was a 21 year-old fraternity guy. For most of a semester I went to almost every party of the frabeerpong.jpgternity Sigma Pi, which would be why my GPA was so low my first semester. I learned about jello shots, ice luges and playing beer pong.

The reason I thought of this so early in the morning on a Monday is one of the guy’s from the fraternity I hung out with found me on myspace. He went by the name Animal, I can’t remember if it came from Animal House or The Muppets but wasn’t someone I dated although one of my friends dated him. He had this beerpong photo on his myspace and I remembered the time me and my now exboyfriend played him and another guy in beer pong. We kicked their ass and I remember having so much fun.

When the relationship ended I remember being sad at both losing him and losing that place in the brotherhood. They all made me feel so welcome, like a sister to them, and once I was out of that brotherhood it was never the same. Maybe in the end I just miss playing beer pong, I was pretty good at it ğŸ˜Ž

    It’s always so weird when you run into an old friend and you think of the old days and the way you used to act… I sometimes do that and im surprised im still alive lol

    Oh man, beer pong. My boyfriend and a lot of our friends are about to graduate from law school in a couple of weeks. Last weekend we were playing beer pong, and we wondered if it might be the last time we had an excuse (ie: being in grad school, though we are all mid-20’s- early 30’s) to play it. Hugely sad.

    I said, “Don’t adults send their kids over to play ball at picnics while they set up a beer pong table? I mean, if they’re young parents. Don’t they?”

    Sigh. Apparently they don’t.

    It’s a small world, isn’t it? There’s always someone you used to know just around the corner.

    I’ve never played beer pong because beers nasty 😛

    I’m not positive what ice luges are but I think I can guess and jello shots are still going strong 🙂

    That myspace is getting all kinds of attention. I’m not going to start one…I have enough places people can find me 🙂

    hterry – ice luge (not sure I spelled it right) is when they take a huge block of ice and carve a path through it. You kneel down at the bottom of the path putting your mouth on it. They pour difference kinds of alcohol down that into your mouth 😀

    Dee – I’ve been drinking beer since I was like 4, I love beer.

    Hmm, sounds like the alcohol sampler I did at the bar recently for 10.00 lol My friend and I did this because the owner was making his own flavors and we had maybe 15 or so different samples. Of course they saved the Kentucky Whiskey and 151 last which was *smooth* 🙂 That luge cancels out putting it on ice to chill since it’s doing it for you as it goes down. Nice idea.

    Sounds fun, I’d be up for that!

    Ice Luging was fun and made it go down easy 😉
