Tequila and a BBQ, could it be the cause for 2012?

Ok so tittle is a bit off,  
I had an absolutely wicked time Saturday night, an impromptu phone call from a mate saying he is coming round with Stake kicked it off, I rang up my friends asking them to come on over  and enjoy hanging out, it's been way to long, and desperately needed it as well, Working twelve hour shifts for this whole year including Saturdays start to get to you with no time off, So, I took last Friday and this Monday off to enjoy a long weekend, On Friday I watched all 4 hours of the (un)live stream of the death? of xbox live, what do you have to do to kill that damn thing if only they made their hardware as good as their servers eh? 
So after watching that brilliant bit of Giant Bomb history, (Vinny, you champion, I'm calling it, you have to play the guitar at all endgame's from now on) and looking at the state of my social life, I thought yep, needs to be done,  
 
After ringing all my mates, 12 off em turned up, I cooked Steak, Chicken Burgers, Sausages, Lamb Ribs, Pork Ribs, and prawns over garlic and onion, (who says a man can't cook eh?) and we ate, whilst talking of good times, (It's been nearly 6 months since we were all together, Never let your friendships drift, they are immensely important!)  
 
Well, after may I say brilliant dinner, we started on the terps, Tequila was first up, very smooth, too smooth, in between them I was having JD on the rocks, and my friends were having a mixture, music in the background we joked and laughed about things, details are quite fuzzy, I remember one of my mates said "I have a scratchy throat from taking something nasty last night", I said, "what did you take and how deep did it go?" which started us singing how deep is your love, My mates are awesome.   
 
Then we just hung out until 3 am, talking, it was brilliant, I highly recommend it, 
 
     
 
 
    
 
Just in case you were wondering this is me, hello!  
 
So yeah, now to the bad news,  
Waking up after consuming what should be an illegal amount of alcohol went to bed about 4 am, and woke up at about 5:30 am, headed straight to the bathroom, Black Death escaped in as many orifices as possible, I decided to sit under the shower for half an hour, and for the whole day today I have been gingerly walking around and trying to avoid bright lights,   
But, I would recommend it to anyone, Giantbomb, I advise you, go out, enjoy the social life, spend time with your real friends as much as possible, I used to be a social creature, I never was interested in the internet circle, but now I am addicted, to a point where I spend 5 hours watching a live stream (Unlive for those keeping track) and Whilst I love this site to death, there needs to be a balance, I need to rediscover that balance,  
 
Anyway, thanks for reading,  
This is going to be my sign off from now on, tis awesome, thanks Buzz_Clik

Goddamnit, typo in the tittle.

Posted by ZeForgotten

Typo in "Title" also :P  
But yeah, more people should get out there and hang with their real friends instead of these fake internet buddies. 
Unless of course people on the internet actually have the balls (or girl-balls) to travle somewhere to meet up with an internet-buddy and become friends, indstead of this "acting like a friend" bs :P  
 
But man, you seem like a fun guy to spend a day with. 
 
Next time, BBQ, TENTS and a whole weekend. 
Oh and alcohol too obviously :P 
 
I don't have a sign off that will piss most .gif haters off and report me, BUT! 
I will say this. 
Go have more fun. 
It might be another silly Sunday for some people, but for me, it's another day with good food :D 
I just hate the waiting before stuff actually happens tonight :(

I see my problem now. I only drink beer. I leave the hard stuff to the professionals. I do like a tequila shot from time to time. You can edit the title if it's a blog post. Go to your blog on your profile page and edit away or click on your name showing your level and follow suit. Peace out.

Cheers man,  
I would like to meet a bunch of people on this site, I have a couple of people overseas that I need to catch up with when I do an OE, and I would like to buy a couple of people a drink as they seem to have the same sense of humour as I do, and it would be great to just hangout in person with some of you guys, although, some people on here do scare me a little.

You're one of them, I'll leave it as is I think,  
Whoops I mean you are one of the people that I would like to buy a beer and have a chat, not you are one of the people that scare me, umm, yeah.

@Red12b: 
 
Hear, hear brother. I would enjoy a drink and chat with you. Especially if you're buying. What? I'm old and cheap.

You'd have to step up your game and order something stronger, but Yeah, would be mint.

Dude, that whole ratio of guys to chicks is all off  :/  
That reminds me, just for you, I must dig out the photograph of me and my "harem" of girls from back in the day - it will make you chuckle.
 
Glad you had fun.  I used to have all night hangouts with friends at your age - make the most of your age (of course I never drank alcohol, so I never suffered the after effects).

I'm looking forward to seeing that Mr supposed stud, I thought you were a taken man by the same first girl, a secret life eh? good for you.  
 
And I just needed a big blow-out, work has been tough and I'm looking for another job, might as well use my holiday pay whilst I can.  
Those are my best mates, all you need are a few of em' and these guy's do me proud.

My last school had tons of Asians and despite everything you hear about those crazy Japs, they really don't drink that much when they are guests in your country. As in not at all.
 
Fortunately summer holiday is coming up so I'll probably end up robbed and naked, sleeping in my own vomit in some ditch again. Ah good times.

That sounds like a ton of fun. I like outings/get togethers like this. Even if you don't "remember" anything, it was still a hell of a time. 
 
Also, your drunk blog post prior to this one made me laugh quite hard.

Good luck, Hope the Ditch is comfy, try not to sleep on top of any sharp rocks, they are a real "pain in the arse"  
 
Oh I crack myself up...

" One of the oldest forms of human culture is made even more awesome with the aid of alcohol. I myself don't like tequila, it's one of the few types of alcohol I've got no interest in. I had an incident in France, Belgium and Holland some years back and I haven't touched it since.  If I didn't have to work so hard I'd spend a lot of more time boozing & BBQ-ing with friends, preferably on a beach somewhere in my tropical homeland. We actually have a nice BBQ area in our new back garden, but we've yet to use it yet.     You should call em snags for authenticity. "

Where is your Homeland may I ask? 
I don't live in oz otherwise I would've, Get on that Barbie quick mate, You gotta run it in, throw some cheap steak on first so that the grill get's some flavour to it.
