This party I'm invited to tomorrow night
I'm thinking of not going. I was supposed to bring Twister, but I just don't feel up to it.
This would be my fifth year of going. The same five of us do it every year. And I have to say, they're kind of boring.
The host got pissed last year when I came in with wine, which we didn't use, because she feels you can have just as much fun sober as you can drunk. And it was okay. We played scrabble while we watched Turner Classic Movies. The only truly exciting part was when her one friend thought it would be cool if she kissed Ryan Seacrest while he was on the television screen. Some hooting and hollering as she was on her knees frenching the television.
But this year I would rather be at home sipping Irish cream on my sofa watching Antennae TV.
Is it too last minute to back out tomorrow?

It's never too late to stay away from a boring party.

Who doesn't drink on New Year's Eve other than recovering alcoholics?
The real question is why did you go back the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years?

Just tell her something suddenly came up!

R4 She's not a recovering alcoholic, she just feels that alcohol is vastly overrated.
I go because I get asked so far in advance. Usually in early November. I feel bad if I don't say yes.

This is so pathetic that just READING it has made me want to kill myself.
Get new friends, dude.

You could always bring alcohol and make a scene.

Just tell them that one of your New Year's resolutions is getting rid of all the boring, judgmental people in your life. And then tell them to go fuck themselves.

It sounds like hell on earth, OP. Feign a stomach bug.

Kinda. You already said you were going, go. When one person cancels out, then it can kind of avalanche. You don't want to be the one who ruined someone's party. next year, just say you have other plans.

Bring a prostitute. Someone who is really obviously a prostitute. It will at least liven up this year's party and probably get you out of being invited to next year's.

You were going to play Twister? That is no fun unless you are drunk. Sorry, sounds like a drag, not the no-alcohol part as much as the hostess part. She sounds obnoxious. A lot of people are coming down with the flu - so can you.!

Uh, Twister? Frenching Ryan Seacrest on the television screen? What has DL come to? This is obviously a troll post. He got you good.

She can feel alcohol is "overrated" (it's not), but she shouldn't host a New Year's Eve party and not expect her guests to have a drink or two. You don't all have to vomiting in her bathroom, but to make it verboten?

If the host actually got pissed because you were gracious enough to bring wine, I'd tell her to screw off. What a bitch.
Stay home and enjoy yourself.

If that was the highlight, I cannot imagine how utterly boring the rest of the night must have been. The host sounds weird and controlling and this "party" sounds like a total snooze-fest.

God, that sounds like a New Years party I might have gone to in the 6th Grade. OP, you should BAIL, I think you owe it to yourself.

There's only 5 of you? Go, but take a deck of cards instead. Play poker. At least make the night interesting.

Thank you, OP. I haven't laughed this hard all day.

Your friends all look like the Carpenters and wear pullover sweaters, right OP?

It sounds like a bunch of teenage nerd girls in footie pajamas the way OP describes it.

This is why I hate New Year's. It's so frigging overrated. People would rather go to a dreadfully boring party than stay home alone with a good bottle of bubbly and tv. Not me. I decided years ago that I wasn't going to do things just to please other people. So, yes,I cancel at the last minute sometimes if I really don't want to go somewhere. And OP I suggest you do the same. If you've never had a good time at this party then make up any excuse and stay away.

The host sounds controlling and ridged. Does she get all pissy and bent out of shape when people don't do what she wants just the way she wants?
|by Anonymous||reply 29||12/30/2012|
Stop being a doormat for this control freak host. Call and cancel and don't feel any guilt about it, if you want to. Life's too short to put up with other people's bullshit rules.

The year ends with the best EST of 2012! Genius, because it's so deftly dispiriting. Bravo, Brava!

2/10. At least I didn't get sucked in like the rest of you morons.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||12/30/2012|
5/10 would have been better with one less anecdote about the party...maybe drop the twister.

The host is Reese Witherspoon, isn't it?

Turner Classic Movies was a just a little too precious for me. This group probably wants to watch Dick Clark.
