House Party

While Didier and I have had a few small dinner parties, we've yet to have a big party, and so our plan for many months now has been to have a shin-ding, a blow-out, a par-tay. We decided to combine a House Warming, with Didier's 40th birthday, our 2 year anniversary and Pride. It was scheduled to take place during both our vacations as well as while friends were visiting from France. There was about 30 guys here. and a good time was had by all...

The invite was for 7:30 pm and the first guest to arrive was none other than Mr. Bruno TickleBear! And no sooner did he arrive than so too did an phenomenally intense downpour that lasted 1 1/2 hours. Now, I don't personally blame Bruno, but the next time I see him if it rains I'll become highly suspicious...

It rained and rained and rained, and men continued to arrive, arrive, arrive...



Men, men men,



and food, food, food...

and drinks, drinks, drinks, drinks, drinks! I was a Sangria Machine, making pitcher after pitcher, and it would seem it gots a lot of em, a little tipsy.
Finally the rain stopped and we slowly but surely all ended up on the roof...


Many pitchers of sangria later it was 2 am and time to call it a night.

We had a blast and so too, it seems did our guests.

-----

Need a good Sangria recipe sure to please...

1/2 mikey of Peach Schnapps
1/4 mikey of Vodka
2 bottles red wine
2 cups OJ
1 litre Gingerale

Add Sliced Orange, Lemon and Lime and strawberries. (I freeze the berries, cut in half... they act as your ice, after all who wants to water down their drink?

Enjoy... We did!

Misster Kitty said...

I never play in the rain and tell... ;-) But I will say, that there will be a repeat rainstorm some time soon.

TICKLEBEAR said...

Misster Kitty said...

HA!

TICKLEBEAR said...

what kind of answer is that???
elaborate, please...
:D~

Maria said...

ahem... why wasn't I invited??
Gender discrimination is against the law - no?? LOL

And what about NGB... we both could have showed up arm in arm and I would have brought souvlaki with tzatziki!!!

In any case, glad you fella's had a nice time!

TICKLEBEAR said...

my feeling was this was a queer event...
sort of B.Y.O.B.
bring your own boy!!!
:)~

Newsguy Bob said...

Yeah, and I was going to be Maria's boy!
As the only "breeders" there, we would have been a conversation piece, something for you gay guys to be catty about.

It's okay, Maria, my little baklava, we'll have a straight party and not invite them -- although the tokenism would be fun.

And I'll have you know that my sister-in-law makes a killer sangria! Hah!

Oops, I'd better be careful, or someone will mistake me for a pissy bitch.

Misster Kitty said...

@ TB:
No WS in the 'classical' sense anyway...

@ Marie...
Sorry Maria... it was, as TB indicated an exclusively homo-a-go-go event. "Members Only" as it were...

Misster Kitty said...

...and they say we homos are a bitchy bunch! HA!

;-)

TICKLEBEAR said...

yes,
you are indeed slipping on a very queer road here...
no matters, i make my own baqlawas... been surrounded my whole life by italians, greeks, armenians & such... got a few tricks of my own!!
:)~
again, Kitty being quite discreet while we discuss among ourselves...

TICKLEBEAR said...

"members" only.....
:D~

Misster Kitty said...

Still busy back-bloggin' here. lol

'Members Only' always makes me giggle!

Maria said...

NGB, I never been called a little baklava before, but I like it! I like it!

TICKLEBEAR said...

i hear penis envy here....

Maria said...

I hear nothing!

Misster Kitty said...

HA! Penis Envy... What's worse.. PENIS Envy or VENUS Envy?

Venus Envy... they're a great all Lesbo singing group... I have their Christmas CD... "I'll be a homo for Christmas"...

And for those of you that think I'm making this up...
