Holiday Party Postmortem

Welcome to the inaugural post on my new blog! I can’t promise anything good, as I have a massive hangover, which is to be expected after the crazy house party I threw last night. To all of those who came and got down and dirty, thanks! It was a great time, and I can’t wait for the next one.

I woke up this morning with a huge, gargantuan hangover. It was the stuff of legends. We all dipped pretty hard into the Bulleit Bourbon last night, so that hangover was to be expected, but hot damn my head hurts!

If there’s one truth to house parties, it’s that people really let their guard down. The beer was flowing, the bourbon was going fast and people got rowdy in a hurry. So it was no surprise when I woke up today and my house was in shambles. Utter. Disaster. Beer pong sure is fun, but damn, it makes a mess!

I’m talking bottles and cans everywhere, stains on my couches, food and gunk mashed into my carpet. I honestly wanted to cry. Fortunately for me, I didn’t have to clean up the place along. My awesome roommates were there to help, and for the wine stains and gunk I called the carpet cleaners as I just don’t have the proper tools to take care of these. You have to take care of these issues quickly, or they’ll just be there forever.

Fortunately for me, the company I use was able to hook me up with a last minute appointment for this afternoon, so as I write this I’m sitting on my cleaned couch, happy as hell that the cleaning ordeal is over. The company I use specializes in commercial carpet cleaning, which is one of the reasons I use them. My thought is that if they clean restaurants and businesses’ floors well, a simple 3 bedroom home must be a walk in the park for them.

I got a pretty good deal, as they cleaned the carpet but threw in the upholstery cleaning for my couch free of charge. The guy who came said it was a pretty minimal wine stain, so he didn’t charge me. That was smart on his end too, as I’ll definitely use them again. Between them and my awesome friends, the place is finally clean.

Anyhoo, now my hangover is starting to go away thanks to some greasy Chinese food (General Tso’s is my jam!) and a little hair of the dog. I can’t believe there was even any whiskey left over – I thought we burned through it all last night, but I guess people got so lit up that they couldn’t find the bottle right in front of their noses. Thank god though, there’s nothing that cures hangovers like the hair of the dog that chased you. I wonder where that expression came from.

Aight, I’m going to go out and go for a walk and try to find something to do. I spent so much time prepping for this party that I need to get out for a bit. Sorry if this post is boring – I’ll try to spice it up in the weeks, months and years to come!
