Main Question or Discussion Point

party, party, party!!!!

How many of you still party, and I mean party hard? Or perhaps some of you have started to move towards the more "mellow" scene (drinking coffee, talking with friends, watching a movie).

I was in the honors dorm, and most of us didn't party until after a few months, played video games with each other, basketball, pretty well knit relative to other floors...later on....partied hard, (I was in Iowa back then-2nd highest binge drinking rate, although the school has a excellent medical school as well as other academic credentials).

Now that I'm in my last year of undergrad, I've sort of tuned out, I think I'm growing old. I prefer to spend more "quality" time. I'm currently 23 years old (been switching around majors) and some would say that this is too early to mature in any sense

I still party hard, just not very often. Unfortunately, many of my friends have started to "mellow" as you put it. Kids put a real damper on social lives. So, I just need to find some new, single, or at least childless, friends.

I don't party anymore; It seems like a waste of time now. But I think it's one of the best ways to break the ice and bond with new acquaintances, like coworkers, roomates, etc.

the best way to make an acquaintance is to dance like an idiot and make yourself look stupid?

I have some younger, female friends who, shall we say, challenge me. And being that it's summer and they are teachers, they are extra challenging these days....

Not making acquaintances (though it does help with this too), but bonding with new people who'll be spending lots of time together. I've found that everyone getting drunk and acting stupid works.

If you consider hanging out at PF a party, then yeah I party all the time! If you mean hanging out with physical people, a few kegs, etc, then no I do not party.

Hooray for partying!

21 and still going strong. The party I went to the other night ended in Crunchy Nut Cornflakes being spilt all over the trampoline, a phone being twatted down the garden with a cricket bat, and a Finnish chick hugging the toilet for a few hours. Yay!

i never did much of that when i was in school, but since i graduated i've been hanging out with some guys who have been hardcore partyers since we were in high school. it's always good to hang out with them for a change, they can teach me a lot. a few weeks ago i wok up with gum in my mouth & i had no idea how it got there. i guess i'm lucky i didn't choke while i was sleeping.

We used to have an old farm house to party in, so we could make as much noise
as we wanted, and guests could show off their skills on two wheels, it all ways
amazed me what was left after the party, apart from bottles and cans.

I'm not sure if you're referring to the content of my post or my decision to post it. I guess either way, I'm no o:)

Oh, silly me. Well, since I've already ruined the joke, I may as well admit that I was just kidding.

Shucks, okay, I hate to disappoint...

Let's just say he's lucky I didn't choke while I was sleeping. :eek:
