Party On, Ben!
Who knew that Ben Domenech was such a party animal? Okay, we had some indications, but I had no idea that Ben was pro-orgy. On the distinctions between "real parties" and "other social events," Ben says:
Large parties require much more than a gram of cocaine and, usually, other people besides yourself.... It's not a real party if it doesn't end in an orgy or a food fight.I had no idea you were such a wild and crazy guy, Ben! Other pieces of wisdom from 17 year old Ben:
Whom to invite:Such a gentleman that Ben. He also recommends parlor games:
- All neighbors within earshot.
- Everybody you've ever slept with (unless they insist on being accompanied by a lawyer).
- A lawyer of your own.
- Sorority girls who take their clothes off at the slightest provocation.
Strip Russian Roulette: a single bullet is put into a revolver. Each player spins the cylinder and pulls the trigger. Anyone who doesn't kill himself has to remove a piece of clothing. Strip Russian roulette's combination of sex and death makes for a highly psychological game.My, that sounds interesting. Though in my four years at William & Mary, I don't recall a game of Strip Russian roulette ever breaking out, not even at the tuck-in we had during freshman orienation with the lovely ladies of Brown Hall.
Now I fully understand what Ben meant when he said in her first post as the Washingtonpost.com's in-house Red Dawn blogger, "This is a blog for the majority of Americans."
Update: Jane writes a letter.
