Photos, videos, and ppt files from my going away party in July 2007
My great friends in Oregon pulled off a wicked surprise going away party, complete with T-shirts,
phallic donuts, roasts, and fun-filled photo displays. Thanks Rock Squad!

Adam, Mark, and Bill showing off their shirts too.

When I arrived, I had absolutely no idea that everyone was wearing the same shirt. It took Jason to
point me at Juan's shirt and stare until I realized it was me on everyone's chest.


Full size
The BBQ was enjoyed by all.

Avie, Laurie, and Laurie's dude.

And then more laughing at my expense.

Jason presented a bracket of the women I had dated to show why Natalia should win.

Here I am coming up to try to rebut something, or more likely to say thanks. I can't believe my shirt is
tucked in here given all the crap I take from Allison on this...


Full size
Here's Bill roasting me. Unfortunately, I don't have copies of that one.


Full size
Everyone laughing at Bill's roast. Note the great decorations the kids did too. Love the balloons!


Full size
I'm hugging Bill to say thanks for the great jokes.

Juan also had a strong roast. I remember one line about a rip in the toilet paper...


Full size
Natalia is laughing at my expense as well.
