    I'd say number 6. I'm 34, single and have no life, so all I've got is getting drunk and being turned down by 20 year old chicks in bars on the weekends. God, how I love myself... :D

    Define "Party"? I drink a few cocktails, but I definitely don't party like I did back when I used to party...... That's probably why I'm not dead by now.

    I do not drink, nor smoke, nor take drugs.

    However, my life is just one big party.

    Well, I do generally rock & roll all night so I suppose I am obligated to party every day. I am not a man imbued with a level of hubris that would allow me to buck such long standing tradition even if I wanted to.

    I need a better definition of "party". I'm not a fan of crowds, but I do enjoy abusing substances.

    and at the bottom it says thank you, and now you can shag off
    When I have the opportunity but deff every Fri/Sat/stop around 4 on Sunday....
  9. I'd say #2 when I was much younger - now partying is pretty much maintaining health, and a few beers once in a while.

    When people ask "do you like to party?" what does that mean? Do you like to drink? Do you like to do drugs? Aren't there other ways to party and enjoy yourself and have fun?

    Just once, I'd like someone to come up to me and say "Hey, do you like to party? Check it out. I got a piñata yo! Hit that **** dawg! Hit that ****!

    - Louis Katz -

    P.S. The answer is anywhere between a handful of times a year to everyday depending on how you define party.
  11. I'm too damn old to party! :scowl:

    None of these options fit me. "Party"--I don't abuse substances and never have (I can count the number of times I've gotten drunk on two hands). I drink maybe 1-2 beers a month. But I still love going to see live music--and being able to remember how great the show was afterwards.

    I thought that but then said screw it after realizing I just allow myself more time to recoup on Sunday...

    I'm fighting for my right to party right now. I'm currently in the middle of pulling a 13 day straight work week and I'm putting in over 10 hours each day.

    I don't go to parties. I am the party.
  16. I'm with this guy. I mean I go to parties, sometimes until 4, but I'm like "hey this party is lame lets leave" so technically I'm trying to party but really I'm not. It's a very subjective question, which bothers me, kinda. Honestly I just left a party to be where I'm at now, where the real party is but its not really a party. Can you dig it? This is starting to mess with ma head.

    I don't remember the last time I went partying ... dinosaurs were still around I think.

    Two glasses of wine and a good movie beats staying up all night these days. :)

    Since you asked:

    I started as a weekend warrior my senior year of high school and gradually bumped up the frequency to 3 or 4 times a week as well as the intensity during four years of college. After I left school, I managed to work blue collar jobs about 50-60 hours per week while pretty much partying 5 or 6 nights a week.

    Partying was centered around always being in at least 2 gigging bands and enjoying the entire night life atmosphere surrounding the music scene.

    Sex, booze and rock and roll. :D:bassist::D

    Then, I suddenly decided to get married and within one year we had a child and I became the model of responsibility and sobriety. Seriously.

    We divorced when our daughter was a teenager and she moved out with my ex-wife so I went back to the routine of full time work during the day and full time partying at night.

    This plan worked pretty well until I found out that burning the candle at both ends for years at a time carries with it the increased risk of sudden death. After this past summer's close encounter with The Grim Reaper, I decided that my party days were over forever.

    I suppose it's a good thing. I've gone back to some reasonable amounts of regular exercise and a proper diet, and I've actually started saving money instead of living from paycheck to paycheck. Partying every night is EXPENSIVE.
