Jeff the Dentist is the new awesome

Jeff Thomas graduated from dental school yesterday. This means that if you get on his good side, maybe he will give you a root canal for free (in his basement).

To celebrate his new full-fledged dentist status, Jeff bought a new pair of expensive jeans, and decided to move to Utah. We were all way more excited about the jeans than the whole moving thing, but decided to throw him a combo graduation/farewell/new jeans party anyway.

We tried to think of the most dentist-appropriate party that we could. Betsy made the shopping list:

Don't worry. Along with the numerous bowls of candy that we provided all over the house, we also made sure to give out toothbrushes.

We gathered everyone together to eat at Memphis Minnies, Jeff's favorite BBQ place, so we could eat some serious meat. No one told us that Memphis Minnies is closed on Mondays. Saddest. Boy. Ever.

Casey was pretty t-o'd too.

We had to turn the unruly mob around and go back to our place, where we put a speedy Plan B into action - pizza from Jeff's favorite pizza place in the Mission, Déjà Vu!

Déjà Vu knows better than to close on Mondays.

Rear shot of Jeff's new jeans (i am pretty sure the guy behind the counter noticed and gave us extra pepperoni because Jeff looked so good)

Juliann, Mindy and Katherine all approved of the pizza switch, since Mindy is a vegetarian and she and Katherine usually like to only eat food that can be sucked up through a straw anyway. I am just assuming that pizza is easier to suck up through a straw than pork ribs.

As if the pizza wasn't enough, we also made the cutest/baddest tooth shaped cake ever.

Then we took a vote to see if we really thought that Jeff ought to leave. Anna and Juliann voted thumbs-down.

Eric? Thumbs-down.
Betsy and Emily? The thumbs-down is evident on Em's face.

Katherine was too busy attempting to drown her sorrows in our variety of cooking wines to give an official vote (but she looked distraught).

Joy and the anonymous thumb behind her gave a resounding thumbs-down.

So it is official. We all hate that he is leaving us.

Just remember, Jeff - you may be going, but your San Francisco friends like you more than your SLC friends ever will.

    Love the tooth cake. So something I would do.

    PS who closes food places on a Monday? Weird.

    What I want to know is why I made the point to make an appearance at the party and I don't even make it on your blog.

    Déjà Vu sounds yummy right now.
