Everytime I have a "responsible partying" type of night, I feel like I deserve some kind of reward. I barely got hammered, had a damn good time, and the only catastrophe was trying to lift Justin Strubing up which ended up with him pouring his own beer on his head when I dropped him. Sorry, Justin! Here's a dump of what was in my camera the next morning.

I found Mike Mo and the kids holding down the front door.
