[the weather today is |weak as a kitten]

Begin at 7:30 PM, preferably when already drunk on whisky. Take:

  • Twenty bottles of Stella
  • Thirty cans of Carlsberg
  • Six cans of Kronenberg
  • Several liters of Hoegaarden and San Miguel
  • Seven bottles of wine
  • Two bottles of whisky
  • An undetermined quantity of other hard liquor

And pour it into:

  • Twenty-two physicists

Add one Polaroid camera, a long blonde wig, a stuffed snake and enough space in the living room to dance to Madonna at 2:30 AM. Dial everyone in your address book at 3:00 AM. Pass out somewhere around 4:00 AM. Wake up at 10:00 AM to find that you are possibly still a little drunk.

We're so doing this again. Oh yeah.

I have this theory about scientists posessing this ability to party like rockstars. So far I haven't met very many who don't.

I think it's part of being very determined, dedicated people. It's just a matter of applying those qualities to non-lab settings. ;-)

I'm supposed to go out again tonight. Still feeling wobbly. Tea may have to be applied first.

You're doing a lot better than me, I need a Kryten-like "Off-line for 36 hours, reboot startup disk, and replace head".

Tea would need to be applied in somewhat voluminous quantities to make me acceptable to the rest of the world!

Evidence will be provided when wobbliness recedes. Also, when the attendee who took all the digital pics e-mails them to me.

This makes me feel like I need to get you my cell phone number just so I, too, can get drunken text messages at ass-o-clock in the morning!

I want to party with a bunch of scientists. It sounds like one of those things everyone should experience. I am wondering what you did with the stuffed snake.
