Here I am at the wedding of my good high school friend, Chris Gibson, to his new wife, Jasmine. There was plenty of drunkeness to go around - I'm glad that I could be the voice of responsibility there.
The bachelor party was given by Chris' brother, Mike, shown here:
Josh and Chamime came down, bringing along Kevin (Kevdog), and TJ and Amy already live in Albuquerque - that basically made it into a mini high-school reunion. Everybody is getting old and grumpy. I seem to be the only one who is not also getting rich, just aged... grrrrrr
The wedding itself was rather respectable. Here's a picture of "the
boys" from left to right: TJ, Chris' friend from Michigan, me, Josh,
Here are the girls from left to right: Chamime, Astrid, and Chris'
friend's girlfriend (French name, but I can't remember much else).
Anyway, we started off with a damned nice dinner... look at these
guys trying to look respectable:
Kevin "cleans up nicely", as he puts it.
Now comes the toasts. I gave one, but there is no photo of such
an event. The camera likely malfunctioned due to lack of charisma.
Check out Josh, looking stately:
Chris "the Rack" himself toasted to more drunkeness
Notice the evil red-eye, which indicates his affections for Kevin later on in the night (you'll see what I mean). I guess we need to figure out the camera.
Notice all of the empty glasses on the table here
I must have had about 10 beers (good, full beers, too) by the end
of the night, plus wine, plus champagne, etc., so you can put the
rest together. I put in an early bid on the karaoke machine. I dubbed
my band "Spencer and the Asskickers", seen here
I believe this was a cover of Guns 'N Roses - Sweet Child of Mine. Sounded good at the time.
Kevin and Amy can be seen here jamming out. At least at this point
it was still a boy/girl situation
As opposed to this
later on in the evening. There was no shortage of women around, so one can only guess that this was a preference issue. No comment... Also, notice the full beer(s) in the author's hand in the foreground. I think this was actually two DIFFERENT beers!
I've been exercising all year for the following situation: out of
all of those strapling young lads, check out who managed to snag the
Good luck to Chris and Jasmine. They took off on their honeymoon, and we somehow got to back to Chris' house to crash for the night. We were obviously feeling peppy in the morning and caught an early start for our desert vacation.
