Prost! Ouch?

So, Friday marked Oktoberfest and we were ready to get our drink on. Our motley crew consisted of me, Tina, Rick, Tanya, Kevin, Chris, and Sally. Craig was down with the stomach flu...We were joined later by Kelly and Jeff. Of course, there are always a few losers who fail to make the party and YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. I will say no more...

As the professional drinkers that you know and love, Tanya and I got there before the doors opened so we could claim the best table. You know, the table near the beer, food, bathrooms and the smoking area.

So, the evening went as it always does....drink beer, eat food, drink more beer, eat more food, dance the chicken dance, drink more beer, down shots of Jaggermeister with a gaggle of lesbians in designer eye wear, dance the polka, drink more beer.

All was going well until the end of the evening... While breaking a sweat on the dance floor, I took a spill on some beer that had been spilled. In fact, when I think back, it was really just a blip on my memory of the evening. After leaving the dance floor and settling back at the table, I somehow found myself in the middle of a fight...man "with chair as weapon" attacks large group, unfortunate me in the middle. Luckily, Chris (the only sober one) grabbed the offender and held him until the law showed up. Finally, the police on hand had something to do besides flirt with women on the way to the bathroom. They quickly hauled off the chair wielding bandit...

It was a good evening and when I arrived at home, I noticed how much my foot was hurting. After I removed my boots, I looked down to see that two of my toes were swollen, bruised and throbbing. How does one tell the difference between sprained and broken toes? Nonetheless, I spent the rest of the weekend with my foot elevated and my toes on ice. Now that's how to party.




Happiness...a full room of beer drinking fun loving people...



This guy was amazing...he's twice my age and moves a hell of alot better than I...


Kevin...smiling in anticipation of the Chicken Dance.

Yummy...and the sauerkraut was so good. I could have eaten a plate full of it...


Tanya and Chris make quite the pair.

Awh...aren't they cute?



Rick is having a great time...although next time, a DD will be planned so another pitcher can be ordered.



What follows is a series of pictures that find Kevin surrounded by a bevy of Lesbians urging his consumption of Jagger shots.










And he lives to tell the tale....

Tina was kind enough to pick up some ginger cookies for her kids. I wonder if she told them where her cookies had been????

A couple of tarts holding a couple of cookies.



A fond farewell to Oktoberfest 2008...it was fun



The only casualty of the night...my two toes.

if you can bend them they probably are not broken - they look badly sprained though - looks and sounds like a good time....

Tanya Kristine said...

a bevy of lesbians and ME. hellooo???

that was a fun night.

Michelle Ann said...

Doggy-either way, I won't be cutting a rug anytime soon. I was having so much fun, I had no idea that I had hurt them so badly.

TK-Sorry!!! I was blinded from the glare of all that "silver" hair. Ha ha

Marc said...

Owwwwwwwwwwwww! Now for the big question. Did you paint them before or after the unfortunate brawl? 'Cuz you know they'd look even worse in that condition if they weren't painted! :-)

TavoLini said...

ouch!!

Other than the toes, it looks like a great time! All that lederhosen!! I don't think I could control myself :)

Beth said...

OMG!!??? You KNOW Tanya??? AND Kody??? Now I'm really jealous.....

Michelle Ann said...

Marc-you know me well. I actually had a couple of chips on the polish, so I had to do an emergency pedicure on myself. You know...lipstick on a pig so to speak!

Tavo-it was great fun and the toes are just another part of the story. I actually found the whole thing hilarious!

Beth-I do know and love Tanya and Kody both. And they are just as they appear. Althought, Tanya left me for her promotion...still sad.
I wrote this about her leaving

Joe said...

Hold on...how did ANYONE wind up sober?!?

buffalodick said...

Toes look sore! Party looked fun!

buffalodick said...

You also suffer from Mortons Toe- second toe in harms way, sticks out further than the Big toe!

Michelle Ann said...

Buff-a little interested in my "toes" aren't you??? ha ha

Michelle Ann said...

Joe-exactly! THANKFULLY, Chris took one for the team... We owe him

I didn't know there was an Oktoberfest in Sac. I was in San Fran last weekend but never made it to their version of Oktoberfest. We were too busy, plus it seemed like a rip off, charging $25 to get in and then you have to pay for food & drinks on top of that. Although it looks like quite a bit of fun. By the way, what's that purple thing on your plate?

garbonzo said...

Wow! That sure looked like fun!!!
Well, except for the feet the morning after!

Here's to hoping for a speedy recovery!

VE said...

Ouch. I'd go on medical disability. For about 3 years... (gives time to travel and relax)

buffalodick said...

Not all toes- just your toes, hot stuff! HaHa, indeed!

SSC~ The Domestic Diva said...

I am glad you had such a wonderful night, despite The chair wielding bandit, and your two toes!!!!!

Trixie said...

Oh I think I've found my twin on the other side of the world!!!

I found you through SSC, you mentioned vodka in your comment and I had to come straight over, lol.

Last time I did an octoberfest was in Munich many mango seasons ago, so much fun!
