I logged onto a few registries and am always amazed at how much stuff people register for. At this age, I really don’t need any more stuff. $100 porcelain gravy pourer? Are you kidding me? I’d rather spend more to get the couple something that they’ll use again and again…like a toaster or a blanket. Shit like that. I think I’d like that kind of stuff. I swear when the time comes around for me, I’m going to register for useful stuff like a year’s supply of toilet paper at Target. Every time I wipe, I’ll think of you. Useful stuff, I tell you!
I co-hosted an engagement party for my friend from business school on Saturday. I supplied the food and the cake. The other co-hosts supplied the place and the alcohol. Surprisingly, it was a blast. You put a bunch of over-worked MBAs together with a fully-stocked bar and next thing you know, we’re doing a dance-off, pouring shots, and playing rochambeau until 3:30am. When the host started turning off his apartment lights one-by-one, we realized we had over-stayed our welcome. Damn, that was a lot of fun.
On that note, we are planning a Chicago GSB reunion. Viva Las Vegas! Tentatively scheduled for the first Saturday in October. We’ve got a little committee going. I’m in charge of entertainment!
