Acti-Blizz-Sion Holiday Party

Ok, so this party happened about 20 days ago, but I have been so busy that I haven’t been able to make a post until now!  Sorry!

The setting was fairly chic (for Albany at least) – Marriott Hotel by the airport – and the music was pumping.  The night started off with a 1 hour open bar (staffed by the slowest bartenders in the world) and hors d’oeurvers .  Needless to say, I already knew that this open bar was going to be bullshit so I brought my own giant flask of Jim Beam Black.  What can I say, I’m always prepared and I think ahead.  The food was edible, but I barely ate anything.  I didn’t want to stifle my buzz!

So here are the mild-not-drunk-yet pics:

Here is where the craziness happened, but of course, the pictures are mild.  Katie and I got a hotel room and hosted the after party.  Surprise, no cops involved!

My last memory of the night - Me, Katie, Kerry and Matt sitting around wondering, "when is this party going to get started?!"

Shortly after I took the picture above, my mind went “good night” and my body went “PAAAAARTAAAAAY!!!”  My black out begins…….

NOW!

I hope you all enjoyed those pictures.  I haven’t been able to party hardy since then.  Hopefully I’ll have more pictures and posts for you during this holiday season.  I miss you all very much and I hope to see you all again soon.  I’ve been feeling extra homesick lately.
