Well, guys, I’ll give you credit for the theme. Because even without the barn, I’d say I did a great job of being our resident party animal! (And with that, I’m obliged to give everybody else credit for making all of this possible.) I’ll be honest, I almost wasn’t sure when I arrived here. No barn, boring games, not a ton of people for the first half hour. Yeah. Then we just have a full-blown CHEWBACCA coming in with a posse of costume campers, and all the fun breaks loose! (Chewbacca will remain anonymous.) With everybody here, we settled in for everybody’s favorite Compliment Game! Boys versus girls, peeps! Though the battle between myself and one formidable opponent was fought to a draw, in the end, the girls won 5-3. Do I care? I say good game to some good players! I mean, come on, we all witnessed that face-off between the Johnsons! What could be better? This was followed by a game of Mafia (I won as Mafia), and of course dinner. Or dessert. You call it what you will. I, on the other hand, call it one and a half waffles with LITERALLY EVERYTHING on them! I don’t know what you had for dinner, but I had a sugar high! Oh, and don’t forget the hot chocolate! (Turns out it takes TWO drinks to get half a cup of powder into my system.) And to top it off, we finished the night with a lovely glowstick manhunt game! And even though your friendly neighborhood reporter had to leave early (no, I was not escorted by a SWAT team), the fans did get to witness an epic 1v1 glowstick battle between myself and yet another formidable (but anonymous) opponent! I must say, Pine Tree, for my first year at this school, you sure know how to make an impact!
