Crazy Events

Well, Cory's wonderful story of the DZ hayride got me thinking about some of my wonderful dates through the years of Formal, semi's and date parties and I was sure others had some fun ones too!
I think my favorite is when I took my friend Phil to AOTT formal my junior year. He was the little brother of my roomates boyfriend and he seemed really cool. Well, he was supposed to be at my house for the preparty at 6:00pm on Saturday(the buses left at 8). At 6:45, he is still not there, nor are ANY of the Lambda Chi's. We finally placed a call to the LCA house, only to find they had been having a beer pong tournament all day and were SMASHED. They FINALLY show up at 7:45, barely able to stand. But instead of just leaving there drunk asses, we pile them onto the bus and head to formal. On the way TO formal, my illustrious date PASSES out, and SNORES. Loudly. I mean, like window shaking. Wonderful.
We finally arrive at the place and wake up the dates and get them into the dance hall. Luckily, there was food at this event, so the boys proceed to consume a massive amount of food and get second winds. We head to the dance floor, where Phil convinces me he knows how to 2 step. He does it pretty well, till he dips me and drops me flat on my ass. Owwwwww.
By this time, the second wind of energy has faded and the Beer pong boys had back to their chairs and pass out again. Thus ending the night.
The funny thing is, I am still friends with Phil to this day and I swear he is always extra nice to me because he knows what a fiasco the whole thing was. But it did make a great story!
Okay, people--lets find out your favorite date event stories!

Okay, another one.
One of my best friends is a Pi Phi, and this is the story of a formal gone terribly awry.

So my dear friend, her date, a sister of hers, and me are prepartying at the TKE house as the other chap was a member, and I had yet to pledge anything (I didn't pledge until my 2nd semester), and we all begin to preparty. With a 5th of Absolut Citron, we three, the 2 girls and I proceed to get obliterated. Hmm, Rachel, my central-figure friend of whom I'm speaking disappears for a bit, perhaps to find her missing date who has actually left the premisis to meet up with his girlfriend, unbeknownst to us. No, Rachel is off chugging more special brew of some guys, then comes back looking a little too drunk, but hey, what does 'too drunk' really mean, right?

Well we get to the dance, and my date and me have a wonderful time, going just as good friends. Rachel begins dancing but later sits down being like, I'm rrreeeeeaaaaeeeeaaaaeeaaeaeaaellllly trashed, so I'm thinking cool, she's really drunk, that sucks, but though she won't remember it, at least she is having a great time, right? Hmm. 35 minutes later some friends come up to me saying "Cory, could you go into the girls bathroom and help Rachel..she's rough, and has been lying on the floor for the past 25 minutes" so now I'm thinking "Dammit drunkass, no need to spoil others' times as well" but I check regardless cause 'she my girl.' I go in and try to to talk to her, Kenny from southpark was more understandable than the sounds that came from her mouth, basically, she wasn't talking at all, so though I know it's not funny, I have to have a smile on my face cause normally she can put more alcohol away than I can, but tonight she was rough! I try to stand her up (while drunk myself) but she has jell-o legs, I start to just pick her up, but the police arrive because one of the sisters called it on her so that she received proper help. This is fine, of course...we're glad..they tell me to let her be, and then a few minutes later stretchers roll in and get her. She's 100% unresponsive now, and they're flying her to the emergency room, I think we jusdt left her date their, my date and I, along with the president of Pi Phi all went down to the hospital to stay with her. It's still early, I'll say 11pm, and as we're there (still drunk) we have to give accounts of everything that we know that happened which was fine, we wanted to help in whatever way we could, so we both were like, "the three of us split a bottle of vodka and then she had a few more drinks, we're completely sober now (so we say) but she took it rough, which is odd because, and though I am aware it's incriminating, she can typically drink more than both of us." Stupid to say? I didn't, nor would I have thought so, it was to show that there had to be some other reason she was ill, rather than just the alcohol, perhaps pills or something, which she doesn't do, but who knows? you know? We end up also having to go to alcohol counselling which made me write the board to tell them they'd never get compliance out of me again for getting punished by helping people when in any other circumstance, had I denied prepartying with her, knowing her, shit my date & I didn't even have to go to the hospital. Sorry for the tangent....they tell us all to leave and come back in a few hours, so we all go sleep in the lobby of the Pi Phi, for about an hour, sit there at the hospital for about 5 more while Rachel is getting her tummy charcoaled and pumped, all the while we realize tht she is fine and is going to be okay, but want to see her when she gets out (you'd have to know this girl), so we're kinda joking around about how we drank Rachel under the table and under the toilet, and just delirious by this point, trying to provide ourselves with some amusement, and as we're basically making light of the events that took place, Rachel Pugh's nurse walks out and says, Is a Mr. Pugh here? The guy beside me stands and talks to the nurse. oops, my entire leg could have fit in my mouth with as many times as I stretched it with my foot taht night. A few minutes later though, Rachel walks out, charcoal covered, black face, black scrubs, black hands/hair/everything...coughing, black shit would come out. It was like a monster had emerged...it was hilarious! but sad as well.. she'd had alcohol poisoning. She's such a crazy drunk, I'm sure her dad reprimanded the hell out of her, but she also had to pay lots of cash to attend these alcohol awareness classes for a couple of months straight. She, well, didn't really learn her lesson, but she does take, well, no, she's not really precautious either...she hopes that sort of event is like lighting in it's getting around mentality...I stayed at the hospital til 8am, I hope so too.

My most memorable event was when we had our winter formal at the ritzy yacht club that my aunt managed. She got us a great room at a great price even though none of us were members so we were psyched!

That winter, most of my sisters were dating members of a certain fraternity so the formal ended up looking like a DZ/XYZ mixer. We were all having a great time until the manager on duty at the time walked into the mens room and happened upon a half dozen or so XYZ brothers doing serious recreational pharmaceuticals in front of the sinks!

In two shakes of a lamb's tail we got our butts kicked out of that place, were informed that we weren't getting any of our money back and were told that neither us nor any other GLO would ever darken their doorstep again!

AND, of course my aunt told my mom and THAT's always a fun thing to explain

Talking

I can think of 2 that stand out in my mind.

The blind date party where one of the "platonic" dates wasn't getting anywhere w/ his designated date so he decided to hit on everyone in the sorority, and

The formal at the "Tall Timber Inn" where we were banned for life when one of the dates stole a Snickers bar from behind the candy counter. When I saw Reality Bites and they had the part where Ethan Hawke gets fired from his job for stealing a Snickers, I thought I was going to die of hysterical laughter. I'm sure everyone in the theater was like "it wasn't that funny."

My most memorable formal would probably be my Fall Senior one where i proceeded to drink a half a bottle of Absolut Mandarin, do shots on the bus, and then drunkenly fall down a flight of stairs and break my nose just as the night started. But my date was cool about it though and danced with me all night anyway.

Well, after drinking half a bottle of Absolut, I doubt Maggie could feel her broken nose or anything else for that matter! Am I right?

And this one time, at a Band party...

My soph year, I went to a pajama party being hosted by the LSU Clarinets. The game was after a tragic loss to Auburn. In between the game, my boyfriend's parents took us out to dinner. So, I went to the party thinking I had eaten, and would be okay.

At the party, I start doing jello shots. I had maybe 3. And I drank this wonderful drink they called "red" Turns out "red" was kool aid and everclear, but I didn't know that. Thought it was vodka. So I had a few cups of red and then the cops came. Well, we all bolted and the party got moved. We drove around (my boyfriend hadn't been drinking, thankfully) and found the rest of the people who were drunk off their asses and wearing pajamas. So we joined the party, part 2.

So, I'm feeling sorta buzzed, but not drunk. So I decided I need to drink MORE. The red hadn't made it there yet, so I hit the keg pretty heavily. And found more jello shots. And then the red showed up and I had more. By the time we left, I was pretty trashed.

So we get back to the dorm (I had a private room and bathroom) and I run in to go puke. When I come out, Josh is sobbing, because I'm sick. So I start crying. We cry for awhile untill it was checkout time and he had to be out of my room. So we spent the rest of the night in the lobby where I hovered in and out of consciousness.

The next day I was so incredibly sick, the only thing that brought me back from the dead was Rasing Canes' chicken fingers. I'll NEVER drink like that ever ever ever again.

I don't actually get sick alot, but my frosh year, the day I moved in to my dorm was the day before my birthday, and some of my good friends new some guys in TKE (my best friends all ended up joining) but so we're all over there around midnight meaning that my birthday hits. So my buddy MeeHow is like, hey guys, it's Cory's Birthday. So yeah, they gave me any and every combination of alcohol that night, beer, liquor...no particular order. Mind you this is the first night in the dorms. I get home, lay down to sleep before the very first day of classes come 8am, and all of a sudden the room is spinning like a top, so I bolt for the restroom down the hall. Had an accident in the hall-way around 2am, but cleaned it all up so that only one guy who happened to be talking on the phone in the hall and I knew about it. It was funny because it was the VERY FIRST night in the dorms...I wonder if that's some kind-of record?
