'Obligatory fun time!'
agreed totally. i avoid ever having people i dont know even a little bit round.
homemade goddamned awful punch.
and making sure no one does any sexing in your bed that doesn't involve you
those red plastic cups.
all four Bloodhound Gang albums on a continuous loop.
But yeah, more kegs.
But I know someone who has,
Which makes me wonder if i could....
that I own.

when i have people round for these kind of things (which are never that big admittedly, because that really is dumb) i tend to just let people do what they want (within reason). drinks are gonna get spilt, people will do stupid things etc. i just try and let everyone have as much fun as possible without totally fucking things up and then clean up the next morning.
my friend who often does these things is now a wildly unpopular host because he stops the festivities the minute a glass is knocked over or an ashtray spilt on the carpet, and it just sucks the fun out of it all.
id say thats a pretty good start.
Oh, and an empty fridge.
But friends, basically; good friends whose company you enjoy.
for a Edmonds reference :(
for some reason at every house party i've ever thrown someone steals my toothbrush. at one house they stole every tooth brush, on each of the three parties. not what you need the morning after a house party.
at the party to fuck off out of your house is always a winner (and something I had to do very recently)
Well I say MY, the last one was that was at my house, I got up in the morning to go out, couldn't have a shower cos the bathroom had been trashed, then some bloke I'd never met called me a cunt because I was brushing my teeth and he wanted to go for a piss.
I could understand his rage though, since during the party, these people dressed as fairies took over the bathroom wouldn't leave it to let me piss because "property is theft, maaaaaaaaaaan"
Lots of drink
Lock away anything personal
Care less - if you are the host you won't enjoy your own party stressing all over the place
Unplug the cooker
Have a strict guest list
If people want to bring mates, make sure they clear it with you first.
Put all glass objects away in a safe room.
If someone turns up without anything and starts tucking into booze YOU have provided, fuck them off out of there.
Make sure no-one performs an 'upper decker' in your toilet.
wait til i get you home

I am an excellant house party planner.
It is also essential that you get happily drunk as this will prevent you worrying or fussing too much.
put all valuables or breakables in loft......do not leave anything out that would upset you to lose.
Plenty of drink (plus lots of water) (buckets outside....in case the loo is occupied for too long) dont try to have more than 3 rooms with different music.
Have some food for eating (home made pizza cooked in baking trays (rectangular)) is both economic, convenient and nearly universally acceptable, you can make it superior to takeaway ones.
Also have food for food fighting or pies in face for early leavers.
I used to be careful about who might come in. make sure your freinds in the party are 'hard enough' to deal with any strangers you might admit.
but then at least they are less liekly to call the police and then your mate wont be sick out of an upstairs window nearly hitting them as they are coming up the garden path (although giving their shoes some splat)

coronas and gin in the bath
broken social scene
pizza and Valium at 4am
Put away anything you don't want stolen or broken and accept that anything else might get damaged.
Generally I find bad house parties are only bad because hardly anyone is there.
With a big enough group, people make their own fun.
And alcohol. There can't be a shortage of that. But you'd hope that people would bring their own with them.
That's the essentials sorted, in order to make it great, you need to have someone playing good music. A decent mix CD will do.
And pizza. Order one for yourself and a few mates and invite the rest to place an order too (don't go paying for a whole parties worth of food).
or else get exceptionally pissed.
I bet it would get loads of women down.
Oooh. Get me! ;)
That's not really fair, is it. For about ten minutes there were five girls in the house, which should be a respectable number in anyone's book.
If there was one bloke there then yes, that is respectable.
Just dirty ones that you wouldn't really want though.
