Drinking Games!

There are several reasons why I love both my sister and my roommate. Katharine is home for the holidays and is staying with Sarah and I. Monday is usually Monday Night Football but since Andy and Nancy were to tired we decided to stay in. We first watched the remaining episodes of the brilliant Arrested Development and then played some harmless drinking games to some of our favorite Christmas movies, The Muppet's Christmas Carol and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The rules were pretty simple for the The Muppets:

1. Drink every time Scrooge says "Bah Hamburg"
2. Every time Rizzo takes a bite out of something.
3. During Scrooge's visit from the Ghost of Christmas Present, when he says "Know me Better Man" and
4. Drink every time any character says "Merry Christmas"

Well, that got us pretty toasted from that movie alone. I alone went through 2 bottles of Blue Moon. And then we watched the Grinch. It's a good thing it's not very long. First we thought we should drink every time, anyone said something that was not english or something the dear ol' Dr. makes up a new word. We decided this was unwise because we would all be out in the first five minutes. So instead we had to drink every time anyone referenced the Who's and every time the Grinch raised one of his eyebrows. Yes, that was enough. Boy, am I feeling it now.

So Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Holidays. Go play these two games. It's guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit.

I enjoy the Clue drinking game, myself. Drink every time a question goes blatantly unanswered, every time Mrs. Peacock's hat goes squint, every time Mrs. White throws something, any time a line is repeated (like "Communism was just a red herring," or "Can I interest any of you in fruit, or dessert?") Take a shot for each murder. Good clean family fun!
