As I mentioned yesterday, my husband’s birthday is coming up. Because he loves Irish stuff, and St. Pat’s tends to be a holiday he and his friends get excited about, I thought it would be a good time to throw a surprise party. A guy night to drink beer and play video games. Adrianna’s husband happens to be one of those friends and helped gather the guys and handle the assembly and networking of three televisions and three XBoxes. I worked out the food and location prep.
Preparing for the party? Well, I did put some effort in. But it was totally relaaaaaxed effort. Because it’s a party for boys. Boys… who still think pizza delivered in a box is awesome. So I figured if it didn’t look like there would be enough to eat or I didn’t make things they particularly wanted to eat, no worries. I have the number for Pizza Hut. House a mess? No worries. Boys (most of them) don’t care. Decorations? Don’t care. Theme? Pizza and beer is a theme, right? Seriously, so easy to please. As an example of what I am working with: their character names for the game they were playing included “La Fartiste” and “turdlicker.” Really, the most important part of my preparation for this party was the beverage supply.
But I had to do sooooomething for the St. Pat’s birthday theme. It must be a form of OCD. I. must. have. a. theme.
So I made signs.
