FryDay rules.

1. FryDay doesn't invite you, you invite yourself to FryDay. Email me at brast_smboo at yahoo if you need my address. Be at my house at like one or something. Unless your name is Tony or Holly, do not arrive at my house extremely early.

2. I'm not supplying everything. I'll get a giant pack of cheap plates from Kroger, some oil, and maybe some cokes if I'm feeling generous, but beyond that, it's all you. Bring your own beer, stuff to fry, cokes, whatever. I'm the worst hostess in the world, and I'm giving it all I got for Thanksgiving. On FryDay, I will drink margaritas and dip things in hot oil. I'm not hosting. Get your own drinks. Bathroom's down the hall, second door on the right.

3. Your only excuses for not playing beerball are physical limitations, pregnancy, or being referee. If you have physical limitations or a bun in the oven, you'll be on baby duty. If you have neither, you're playing. Don't be lame. Nobody cares if you suck at football. We all do. That's why we're engineers and accountants and stay-at-home moms. If you really suck, you'll mark the end zone or be a goal post. And just so you know, when teams are being picked? I'm awesome.

4. Do not come lookin' all cute. You will have beer spilled on you or you'll get a grease stain on your favorite shirt. You will leave my house lookin' a hot mess, you might as well come like that. Again, nobody cares.

5. May I suggest layers of clothing. The projected high for FryDay is fifty-freakin'-three.

6. Here are the rules for beerball. Learn it, live it, love it.

7. FryDay rules state that there is no 7th rule.

8. All things are fry-able. The strangest suggestion I've had so far has been fried cranberry sauce. There will be two fryers, one for savory and one for sweet. Do not confuse the two.

9. Drink all you want at my house, but DO NOT LEAVE MY HOUSE DRUNK, not even just a little bit, unless you're walking. Drinking and driving is not even remotely funny, safe, or acceptable. Stop drinking alcohol and start drinking water a good two hours before leaving my house. If you really don't want to stop drinking, tell someone who is sober (there will be several) and they will drive you home. This is one rule that will not be broken - if I think you're a little too buzzed to drive and you insist on driving anyway, your keys will be battered and thrown into one of the fryers. I don't care if you think you drive better after a few drinks, or you've done this before, or whatever. NO EXCUSES.

10. There will be fried Snickers bars. Deal with it.

Any questions? Drew, Dave, Rob, anything to add?

Rule 11: There's no crying in beer-ball!

Rule 12: All guests who intend to fry will be asked to sign a liability waver...

Paula Deen did a whole episode on frying Thanksgiving. Fried Cranberry Sauce, Fried Pumpkin Cake, Deep Fried Stuffing on a stick. Lordy I wish I lived closer to you!!!!

I SO wish I could experience this!

Don't you mean "a balmy 53"? Layers... I was in the top row of Lincoln Financial Field, 36 degrees, raining and 40-mph wind. That requires layers. If we hadn't beaten Miami....

Y'all Rebs are a bunch of wimps when it comes to the weather. No wonder you never succeeding in invading the North - "it's too dang cold, General! Let's wait until July."

jesusthroughmary said...

succeeding = succeeded

I apparently will be having trouble with tenses.

Andrew said...

You're forgetting which side did the invading, yank. Lee would have stopped at Washington DC (hardly the far North) to clean the Republican scoundrels out and gone no further, happily and without asking the rest of the country for thanks. See ya Thursday! ;)

Alice said...

So I'm good to hop the fence shittie? Will there be LSU football on t.v.? Ooh...let's make t-shirts...whoo hoo...

I got Fried Today @
FryDay!!!

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge at beer ball.

jesusthroughmary said...

Except he couldn't make it past Gettysburg. The Saints would have stopped at the Super Bowl if they hadn't been beaten in Chicago.

What.

angie. said...

jesusthroughmary: You are absolutely right about the Saints. I will hold on to the belief till the day I die that they would have made it to the Superbowl if they weren't playing in that snowglobe.

To everyone: Not only dress to be a mess, but bring x-tra clothing. No matter what you heard, it is not fun to walk around smelling like O'Douls. Take my word on it...

Now, to those that still don't know if you're gonna grace your prescence at la casa de Spiehler, ya gottta go! I'll be representing my hometown by bringing some beignets(mix), shrimp, pralines, and Abita beer.

N'awlins in the house!!

Stacey said...

Tony - that was really, really low. I'm calling a preemptive penalty on you.

Supermom said...

Hpmhhh!

If I can't look cute, I don't wanna come. :-)

Brou HahHah said...

I will bring the camcorder to record the silliness.

Injury report- Wife still out with tendinitis, trainers have marked her questionable for the game.

HFF, due to the influx of rookies for Mega Super Fry Day Beerball Bowl Championship of the Milky Way Galaxy I, I will referee to make sure everyone gets max enjoyment.

Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. I wish I could have made it. Maybe with the Dr's help I'll be healthy next year :)
