First and foremost, I went to Hobart… So it’s not like I was even thinking about an Ivy League education… Growing up, however, it was my parents dream.
I think they just wanted to put a “Harvard” sticker on the back of the car (as non-Ivy University’s weren’t acceptable to brag about), make sure that all my private school education was well-worth the tuition and rest- assured knowing that I would make a lot of loot and marry either a fellow Korean or a smart white guy with yellow-fever.
And I can totally understand where they were coming from… However, I’m glad I didn’t go to an Ivy-league school. If I had, I probably would not have ROCKED OUT Celebrity over the weekend.
On Saturday I found myself in Millbrook, New York at a party full of married people whose common denominator was that all the husbands belonged to the same club in NYC…. I was the odd-woman out in so many ways but didn’t care as there were fun people, good food, fantastic booze and was being hosted by two of my favorite people. I mean, this is precisely the reason why I FULL ON weasled an invitation.. duh!
After day-drinking and feasting we wound up in front of the fire, itching to play a game. We ended up with Celebrity.
For those of you who don’t know how to play Celebrity it’s quite easy. You split up into two groups. Each group puts in names of celebrities for the other to guess.
Round One: You can give as many clues as to who the person is. Once your teammates have guessed correctly you pass the hat so the next team member can give clues. Each team has one minute to guess as many names as possible.
Round Two: Once all the names in the hat have been guessed, the same names are passed around. This time the person can only give a one-word clue.
Round Three: Once all the names have been guessed with a one-word clue, you must act out the person’s name. NO WORDS.
All-in-all the game is quite fun and entertaining.. and if you, like me, know about pop-culture you’ll do quite well. The other team had two Columbia and two Harvard guys… they sucked. They didn’t even know who Scott Disick was. At one point, our entire team smoked a funny smelling cigarette and we still beat those guys…
When it comes to drinking games those Ive-league educations aren’t always the best.
