70's Smarm

Tonight was T-Bone's 70's party and it afforded me an opportunity to utter a phrase I never thought I'd say in my whole life:

"Man, this gold herringbone necklace is wreaking havoc in my chest hair."

My leather coat is near orange and the ruffles on my shirt turned me on just a little bit. The party started out at Trevor's, then moved to some bar in Cottage Grove (which sounds like a place from Little House on the Prairie and looks like one, too) where a popular local 70's band was playing, then moved to downtown Minneapolis where the embarrassment caused by the glaring eyes of the Minneapolitan non-participants could only be dullened by copious booze. Actually, I didn't care one what people thought about me one bit, even after I got home and realized that only one single shirt button was keeping me from full-on exposing my bare chest to the entire Minneapolis nightlife.

Anywho, all the pictures are here, but I can't imagine them being interesting to anyone, unless'n you wanna see 30-year-olds in bad outfits doing keg stands and generally just acting like regular jackasses.

I know I'm too old to act like this, so you really don't need to remind me.

The reflection of that jacket off your skin makes you look a little like an oompa loompa.

I suppose you've fulfilled your lifelong dream.

By Blogger lainieyeoh, at 4:07 AM  

Dude, are you wearing your oompa loompa shoes?

Are you guys drinking Mandarin Absolut shots as they roll off a frozen hunk of cheddar cheese?

By Blogger Erik, at 6:52 AM  

Who's the hunk in the pink/orange/coral colored suit? Way to hot to be straight. If he is gay I'm moving up and you are introducing me. I don't care how colde it gest.

You're beautiful. And don't let anyone tell you you're not. :)

What.Is. That. Thing. You. Are. SUCKING ON in those pictures...

It looks like two huge Twinkies next to a giant long ice cube.

I must be really old. I guess this is some cool new way to imbibe that has developed since I had a kid 5 years ago.

I had a jacket just like that in the 70's!

It was cool back then

I say you never really get to know someone until they dress up like an extra from BJ and the Bear.

just who is the dude in the mint green leisure suit and who did he end up boinking at the end of the night? You guys looked great by the way.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:43 PM  

You really do look quite sexy, even in the leather (or is it pleather or vinyl?) coat...

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:15 AM  

Tight suits, hairy chests, bad wigs...... delicious. So, what's up with the keg stands and wtf are you guys drinking off of?? BTW, the one guy looks like Johnny Bravo, just a little bit.

Where do you even buy shirts with ruffles? K-Mart?
No offense to those of you who love K-Mart.

T-bone is in the mint green and he'll sleep with anything.

Congrats Dan!

I think the tanning is working!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:57 AM  

That suit makes you look like Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Boogie Nights.

By Blogger Joel, at 11:41 AM  

Where was I?? You probably knew I'd be flirting with the guy in the pink and the guy in the peach suits all night...

By Blogger Kiddo78, at 12:04 PM  

The guy in mint green looks like Ricky Martin.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:16 PM

By Blogger jeremy, at 12:20 PM  

oh yeah and nice w/ the owls tracks on the radio. i heart the owls.

By Blogger jeremy, at 1:13 PM  

I love that you don't care what people think when you go out in public in that crazy outfit, but you feel the need to make excuses for wearing khakis to a bar!

You are delightfully neurotic! In a good way!

By Blogger Angela, at 1:27 PM  

I really have to know, is it cheese? Just tell us, we can take it.

And to chime in, you do look very cute in these 70's clothes. I was waiting for the anonymous-led intervention about your boozing again, but it looks like you've gotten off this time!

By Blogger Christine, at 9:26 AM  

Yeah... where's K-Mack?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 9:45 AM  

and B-dubb with his great fashion tips?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:39 AM  

Oh my god I want to be friends with and your friends so much it make me want to pee. Also, were you drinking chilled shots from a block of cheddar?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:09 PM  

That thing is called an Ice Luge, and it's just a chunk of ice that T-bone poured orange juice on, for added flavor. You do shots off of it. People will always find new ways to drink alcohol. I'd elaborate on the party, but I'm in Hawaii right now, suckers.

Whattya mean, NEAR orange? That thing is total orange. Not even burnt umber, baby.
