My Wolf Pack

While camping this past weekend, it seems all of our conversations came back to forming a wolf pack. If you have seen the movie The Hangover, you know what I'm talking about. If not, the weird character in the movie (every movie has one, right?) constantly talked about forming his wolf pack of buddies who will run with him forever.

Maybe it was because of the obscene amounts of beer bongs we did, or possibly it was all the fresh air going to our heads, but for the most part, all we joked about all weekend was the movie The Hangover and having our own wolf pack.

When we were sitting in the rain on Friday, we were all glad we were huddled together with our wolf pack.

While sitting around the campfire on Friday night, we were glad the entire wolf pack was doing beer bongs.

While peeing in the bushes, we were happy members of the wolf pack were there to keep us from falling over. When I say us, I really mean the women. It's hard to squat and pee after slamming six beers.

On Saturday, we were praising our wolf pack for making breakfast.

The wolf pack was also helping out other members of the pack after most of their camping gear got soaked in the rain.

On Saturday night while skinny dipping in the lake, we solidified our wolf pack. No, we didn't participate in any naked rituals, though I know one member of the wolf pack would have been more than willing.

The wolf pack includes:
Leland: He is the Alpha male. He is the glue to holding the wolf pack together. When we were thinking about moving a year ago, no one was afraid to admit that the pack would fall apart when we left.
Me, aka Yankee Girl, aka Al: I am the Alpha bitch. Though males usually lead wolf packs, everyone knows that I am the one to fear. I'm usually not a scary person, but I can be when one of the pack gets out of line. But mostly I just spend my time taking care of all of them.
Sexy D: He tries to be the loner, but it really doesn't work. His one liners keep us laughing and he is always willing to give anyone a hand and help out in any way. Including helping Leland carry my drunk ass out of the House of Blues a few weeks ago. His "go team" always makes me smile.
Rachel: She's funny, smart and super sassy. She's quick with Fragel Rock references and can quote movie lines better than anyone I know. She will always have my back. She isn't afraid of anything.
JD: He is the comic relief, the Shakespearan fool. He is a self-proclaimed socially awkward idiot and no one disagrees with him. He is generous and caring and would walk through fire for any member of the wolf pack.

I am so lucky to have friends who are totally rad.

A wolf pack cannot be complete unless the three wolves shirt is present. This blog http://correctionsandcorrigenda.blogspot.com/2009/07/three-wolves.html
is what I am talking about.
I am now an owner of this exact shirt courtesy of the gent. Great reviews of this shirt. I promise.

Love it Yankee Girl. And oh yes, you must go look at the tee LuLu mentioned. Priceless and a great wolf pack jersey. LOL.

If I slammed a six pack and tried to squat I think I'd fall over!! :)

I got a good laugh at "is a self-proclaimed socially awkward idiot and no one disagrees with him".

Sounds like I could fit into this wolf pack - I'd have to practice with the beer thing though.

this makes me a bit whistful...do wolf packs ever last forever? i've been part of groups that promised to be friends forever, but it doesn't happen. everyone goes their own way eventually, and sometimes you stay good friends with just one or two of those from the group.

ah, the good old days. reminds me of college :)

Well if you slammed a six pack it's no wonder you had to pee. I think I would enjoy meeting JD.

Anyone still doing beer bongs deserves to be followed. I am probably old enough to be your mother but no worries I will just read your adventures and live thru them vicariously.

Sounds like a fun trip indeed! Anyone with a wolf pack is to be respected in my book.
