I went to the same New Year's Eve party for years and years...

Then the couple who gave it got divorced.
No one got custody of me.
Turns out that I wasn't actually friends with either one of them.

Oh, that is so sad! I've certainly have found myself in situations like that before.
=====================
I have been trying all day to remember how I came to be invited to the first party.

Hey! That's a college suds party. We used to have those what I was a frat boy. We actually bought a giant sud machine...it was pretty cool. But man, what a mess. We had to put tarps down everywhere, and our lawn still got ruined.

Last year, at another college, some girl died at one of those suds parties. I think she had an asthma attack and no one knew. So my frat stopped doing them and sold the machine to SIU-Carbondale's chapter!

Maybe you should have your own New Year's bash, Jim. Maybe we could get out the Dawn dish detergent and party!
===============================
So, Phoenix, you had this dangerous, killer machine and what you did with it was send it to Illinois!!!!!!!!! As said a St. Louis TV weatherman about a line a thunderstorms: The worst is over, the storms have moved into Illinois." He could have added "...where they are killing hundreds but we really don't care because it's not Chesterfield." :)

Sure, the party can be at my place -- I still have my strobe light and music organ (changes colors of lights in room in time to the music) stored someplace.

Well, that's pretty funny! I have friends that I cannot remember when we met or how or why. I think of this every year when I do my Christmas Card list. Ok, probably alzheimers on this end. My hubby is no help, he can't remember either.
=============================
We actually have relatives like that on my father's side, rather close relatives. This is the side where they spend hours doing the third-cousin twice removed, fourth-cousin one removed, thing -- so it is amazing that I have great aunts whose relationship is foggy at best.
