I AM THE MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS DRINKALONG!
Like, more than for almost any other drinkalong we’ve had? I have seen Weird Science roughly eleventy billion times, and it’s one of those movies that has made its way into my everyday vocabulary. Husband and I are constantly quoting it to each other, even if whatever is happening in real life can only be tenuously connected to the line we feel the need to spout off.
I’m hoping you’ve all been looking forward to it as much as I have.
Confession: I may have watched the first 20 minutes this morning in order to get the screencap for the game. (I totally did.)
If you haven’t participated in a drinkalong before, here’s what you need to know.
See you all tonight!
(Do we want to do Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink next? They’re both on Netflix…)
YAY, IT IS DRINKALONG DAY!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve pretty much been looking forward to this since the LAST drinkalong.
Tonight we’re watching The Lost Boys, which is really only (contrary to popular belief) the SECOND BEST teen vampire film of the 80s.
I put the whole drinking game portion of preparation off for too long, but luckily the lovely folks over at Drinking Cinema have us covered. I’mma suggest you don’t follow all of these rules, though. Maybe pick a few and stick with them. I refuse to be responsible for your inability to hold your booze.
If this is your first drinkalong, WELCOME! All you need to do is have a copy of the movie and a twitter account. Alcohol isn’t even necessary! Just pop open the countdown timer up there and press play when it gets to zero. SUPER EASY. Use the hashtag to tweet your thoughts (when you have them). I will storify the conversation when the movie is over, or tomorrow, depending on how drunk I actually am.
Make sure you guys wish a happy birthday to drinkalong regular @noitsachicken. Her birthday was yesterday, but still.
See you all tonight at 10:45E/9:45C!
(Oh, and we were talking about doing the movies of John Hughes next. Anyone have a preference as to where to start?)
I made this graphic last night and then forgot to write anything until now because I started a NON-SHITTY book for Zombruary and have been all up in its bidness instead of effing around online. Don’t worry, I’ll still be there tonight, though – Butterbeer mug full of Cabernet in hand!
I hope to see you all there!
Thanks to Megan for the rules suggestions, although we agree that you should Choose Your Own Drinkalong this time. If you follow all of these you will die and that is not our fault.
I’m tired. I put little effort into this graphic and even less thought into the rules. Deal with it.
Hopefully I’ll get to take a nap today so I don’t pass out halfway through the movie.
If this is your first drinkalong, all you have to do is press play when the Countdown Timer hits zero. Then tweet your witty commentary using the hashtag. See you there!
So, I got up today and felt like this:
Because we are moving in A WEEK and I don’t feel entirely prepared.
But then I remembered that tonight is the drinkalong, and then I felt like this:
So, YAY, GALAXY QUEST DRINKALONG YOU GUYS!

See you all tonight! I gotta go get some more reading done for #SlutsInTheAttic!
