November 1st 2002. That would be the morning after two Halloween parties that were just WAY out of control. It was only the third time in my life.
The first one had an open bar, and I thought the drinks were rather weak...so I had about 9 of them over the course of the eve. I think the last 4 were stronger though....and I got REALLY faced. Luckily, I had planned for this and had a DD take my friends and I to the next party.
All the way across the bridge from Seattle to Bellevue, I was taking digital pictures of the traffic around us, and the passengers in the car....and it was the funniest thing in the world to me. I remember that much. In fact, as many pictures as were snapped of me last year, I don't think there is ONE sober Jedi pic in the bunch.
Then I went to a house party, and my good friend had saved me an entire tray of Jello Shots, because I just love those little suckers. Being as toasty as I was, I did not hesitate to eat 6 or 7 of them (at least) like they were candy...and pretty soon I was fall down drunk. Literally.
The rest of that night I've put together from random bits and pieces I remembered and a lot of stories I heard over the next few days. :-)
I spent a good hour the next morning in the bathroom doing jello shots in reverse.
