WNDP21!!!
Estrogen Party more like it....

Yeah....girls like no tomorrow...but not in the good way.....

So in light of the recent debacle and the existence of the WNDP in question, the crowd was a little thinner than it has been in the past few times, things were seeming to be growing; then with the mistaken drunken words of, "it's over" people got the wrong idea and were hesitant to return this time..understandably so, if I heard the words, "I fucking hate you guys" said loudly admist a party then told not to ever come back..yeah, I don't think the next week I'd be back either....

but some did show up, those troopers, the die-hards, the ones who's lives ultimately are made by the essence of the WNDP's..and to those people, I love you..Neil loves you...we both love you and thank you for your undying commitment and faith. Loyalty. it's true though, without our peasants we would only be kings among ourselves, and that's not as fun....

so happy story short, the WNDP's continued and will continue...but as for what direction they have been taking, well that's under review....

you see..at one time, WNDP's were all about getting down on the dance floor..killer concept, hell the title of event has Dance Party in it, so it's understandable to want to get down and shake it like there is no tomorrow...Conversely though, I had no problem with this, there was another key aspect to the WNDP's that made it very special as well....the inter-mingling. the brilliance of these two forces, while opposite none-the-less, work together to mold an ideal WNDP. They could both be going on simultaneously, or one could outweigh the other at one point, only to have it shift tides later in the direction for the lesser...

and that's what it is all about...people getting down til they're sweaty, and then hanging out on the couch, more than likely drunk as hell....

but the third element is now breaking the ideal mold and what once was a cop-out option, now is the fore-runner of the event. That homewrecker was DDR.

I'm not going to knock the DDR playing, and I have let it stand on it's own....but the fact that the momentum has changed so drastically that people come over only to play DDR and think that is the real reason for the dance parties is a little too much to take.

The living room isn't the hangout place, that would be reserved for the kitchen, I mean come on, there's a frickin' couch in there already! The living room should only be used when the party reaches a size that would warrant it to be used as a hangout, other than that, the lights are out, the TV is off, and everyone should be on the dance floor or in the kitchen....

In my mind, DDR is held in the same respect...if you want to dance, DDR is not in the choices, it's to the dance floor with you..fool. If and when the party is so overwhelmed the living is now another hangout spot, a place to relax, then DDR can be played. Another time that DDR should appropriately be played is towards the end of the night, in the last quarter or so, when people have gotten their grooves on enough, the dance floor is clearing out, and people are drunk as skunks and what to test their coordination skills with a little foot stomping...

But now that is far from the case...I allowed for it to go on this long, and now I have come to the realization that something must be done to detour this train wreck from altering the original course of what dance parties should really be.

and ugly story short: as the "crowd" thinned out, or the party seemed to slow to a null..all that was left was a group of women talking about their goddamned girl problems...Jim was on the couch and as I exited the kitchen he said, "I wouldn't go in there if I were you" I stopped, looked, over heard just a bit..and concluded the party was officially over and the woman were having their own little monthly meeting of sorts.....

but as a good host that I am, I did check on them periodically....

and yeah, end of the night came slightly early, but understandable...
