LET’S SKATE?

20171012_090441.jpg

So for the first time since 1997, my friend Jamie and I went rollerskating over the long weekend. We were definitely the oldest people there without kids, at the skating rink. That didn’t stop us! Neither of us fell, which was awesome. I actually was able to skate, I remembered it quite quickly. I don’t think I would have been as successful if I had attempted roller blades instead. After skating, we went to a cute shop where I got a couple pairs of sunglasses and some jewelry.

After burning calories gliding around on skates, we had a delicious meal. It was at a flatbread pizza place. We had to wait for a table, as it was a happening spot. The food was really good, so I understand why there was a wait. I felt bad though, I barely made a dent in my giant hunks of fried chicken and I couldn’t take it home with me since we were heading out for drinks after dinner.

After dinner, we went out for nitrogen ice cream. It was delicious! I got the cake batter flavor. As if the ice cream place wasn’t awesome enough, they have a speakeasy in the back!!

I did the honor of turning on the light, for delight! A window swung open, and we were greeted with a bartender. He checked our ID’s, and showed us to an empty spot at the bar. It’s not a place where you can just stand around, you have to have a seat. It was very cool! I think next time we’ll eat there instead of the pizza place, so we can sample their cheese platters and such.

To complete our adventure, we went to a brewery. I actually really liked it. Unlike tons of other breweries out there, the beer wasn’t hoppy (unless you selected the beer in the “Hoppy” section). I was very happy with our brews. We listened to some live music before closing our adventure.

WHERE A KID CAN BE A KID

20170829_092217

Or an adult, who acts like a kid!

I celebrated my birthday a couple weeks early. It was mostly because I wanted to go to this hidden arcade, and wanted to slip in before the college kid apocalypse ensues. Nothing in the Boston-area can be enjoyed between  September-Mid December, and Mid January- end of May. It was still crowded at the arcade when we arrived, but it did thin out after a while. I enjoyed a two-person drink to myself, out a giant plastic R2D2 cookie jar. I think the bartender suspected I was the only one that was drinking from this thing, so I don’t think she put a lot of booze in my bucket. It was not fun to carry R2 around all night, but I made it work.

Some of the games were very confusing. I played an Aerosmith game where we had to shoot robots? You can also shoot CD’s at the enemy as well. It took us a good 15 minutes to beat the helicopter launching bad music at us (not Aerosmith, I love them!), but we prevailed. Frankly, I think Aerosmith should stick with pinball machines. This shooting game was best suited for AC/DC, in my opinion. They could have called it “Shoot to Thrill.” Then you could throw TNT at weird yellow robots. Any takers, Konami?

Once we ran out of tokens, we made our way to one of my favorite bars in the area. I got to find out “Mayflower” beat Ewan McGregor in the boxing match. I don’t know a damn thing about boxing, but I KNEW Mayweather would win. Why was that even debatable?! Overall, a very successful early birthday.

SHAKE A TAIL FEATHER

wp-1486750965994.jpg

I just realized I forgot to post my fabulous outfit from the weekend. I got it a while back, and totally forgot about it. I actually got it in the wrong size. The reviews said the skirt runs small, so I should have gone up a size. No matter, it’s nothing that an opaque pair of tights or leggings can’t solve. So I finally wore my fabulous feather skirt to my friends birthday party. It was a fun time. My gift of a glowing cat lamp, and a book titled “How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety” were big hits. But Andy stole my gift idea, and shipped a copy of the book to his friend too. His friend got a kick out of it. 

We all enjoyed a yummy dinner at Golden Temple. Then we made our way to the Mos  Eisley cantina (that’s what I call it anyway). It’s the bar area with a dance floor. The DJ was a friend of one of the party-goers so he played all our requests, which was good. The kitty lamp also made an appearance on the dance floor. The moral of this blog post is to not wear a feather skirt to a bar. People will pat your bottom! 😉

I GUESS I’LL JUST PEE AT HOME THEN…

After dress shopping this weekend, I went out for a friends birthday in Cambridge. We started off with dinner and drinks at The Beat Brasserie inside The Beat Hotel. We all got the steak, not the same steak, we each had our very own! We listened to some live jazz, and enjoyed the atmosphere. 

After dinner, we met up with more people at Charlie’s Kitchen. We opted to drink on the patio, since it was warm for a winter night in New England. I was quite tired. I haven’t been sleeping well for a couple of weeks for some reason and it was catching up with me. So I was a little out of it. When the time came to use the bathroom, I tried to use the one in the patio, but it was locked.  There wasn’t anyone in it, it was just simply locked. I didn’t realize that at the time, just thought someone was taking forever in there. 

 So I went upstairs to go inside the restaurant.  I have never been in the restaurant before. I almost walked into the men’s room by mistake, because I thought it was a single stall unisex bathroom, like the one outside. Nope. At this point, I gave up, and made my way back outside. I figured the unisex stall would be open by then.  Again, nope.  

So I adnitted defeat and went home to pee in my own darn bathroom. I should note, I didn’t go home just to pee. I was actually planning to leave, and thought I should use the facilities before getting an Uber. Haha!

THE WEIRDEST NEW YEARS 

I was reminiscing the other night, about the weirdest New Years Eve I’ve had (thus far). Picture it, Natick, 2007ish. I was either in college, or fresh out. Andy was invited to this house party from a vague acquaintance. This friend lived at the house. 
Andy and one of his friends had already arrived at party, before I got there. I parked my car on the dead end street and began walking around trying to find the house. Strange occurance one, I almost walked into the wrong home. I saw a man from the neck down with Andy’s build through a window wearing a shirt Andy owns. I was about to open the door, when I realized the house was much too quiet to be a party. Also, Andy thankfully had called me back at the his point. He was waiting for me outside.

So we started things off with some pitch black beer pong in the driveway. 90% of the game was spent trying to find the ping pong balls in the dark. There was also a sketchy ice luge. Oh joy! So after a failed attempt at blind beer pong, we ventured indoors, through a backdoor made of ply wood. So safe!

Once inside, we found Andy’s friend he arrived with, in the living room watching a Three Stooges marathon. There was also an elder poker game happening in the next room, that we weren’t allowed to disturb under any circumstances. Wtf? So we decided to hang out in the freezing cold kitchen. It turns out, plywood doors aren’t terribly insulating, who would have thought?! 

I had to use the bathroom. That was an adventure in itself. It was located next to the plywood backdoor. It also had a sliding door, sporting a large hole in it. Glad to see these people value privacy. So Andy had to stand in front of the bathroom for me. At some point, we met the other roomates. They are are crackhead married couple. Anyone surprised? At this point, I wasn’t. 

They were nice enough though. But Andy turned down the offer to be their new roommate, and share a bedroom with his friend. Praise Jesus! Then a guy resembling a hippie wacky waving inflatable tube man, entered the kitchen with his deck of Tarot cards. He gave people free readings in an animated matter. I can only vaguely imitate him, and that would be in person. Words only fail to describe his persona.

At some point, I met Andy’s friend that was hosting the party. He was actually LEAVING HIS OWN PARTY to attend another one. Duhfuck?! It was getting close to midnight at this point. But nobody was doing a countdown. So I left shortly after, mostly because I had to pee again, and didn’t want to use the glory hole bathroom.

Andy walked me back to my car, I parked towards the start of the street. The house was toward the end. There was a man in the front yard that was chuckling, “crazy party, right?” I said yeah, and continued to slowly walk to my car with Andy. Then the guy (who I assumed was a party goer, but actually was the next door neighbor) flipped a switch and started yelling at us about a car blocking part of his driveway. I was like, “I don’t live here and/or care. Call the cops or something, I’m leaving.” The guy didn’t seem to like this solution, or the more obvious answer of going in the house and asking about the car. So yup, definitely one for the books, or blog.

FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US

I’m taking a break from being lazy and blogging. Last week, I celebrated Festivus with some friends. Andy and I woke up early and went to Providence.  We visited his friends tattoo parlor,  so he could finish his ink.  I got a consult as well. The area is really cute,  and we had lunch after. 

 That night we started off with dinner at Bar Louie. Jamie and I exchanged our Christmas gifts. I got some nice perfume and a lipstick palette!  Thanks,  Jamie!  I got a Festivus sangria to celebrate the occasion.  After dinner,  we meet up with my friend during her impromptu high school reunion.  It was a lot of fun. The bar played good music and we took up most of the bar!

PIANO MAN

wp-1481037089425.jpg

Looks like I forgot to blog yesterday. This month is a bit crazy! My work is moving locations, and I will have a much shorter commute. Also, my new office won’t be in the middle of the woods, so it will be nice to be in civilization. Although, they did open a huge new strip mall (sort of) near my work. So the last year or so, haven’t been bad for this boondocks worker. But now I have to pack up my desk, which isn’t fun. I’ve been trying to dump things, but looks like I’m going to need more than 3 crates, only because my filing racks and binders take up a ton of space. UGH.

At least it will be easier after we move, I can walk to places for lunch and shopping. Plus I can run errands during lunch, e-gads! The best part of all, I will be near tons of Pokestops! Haha! I know I’m like one of 3 people worldwide still playing Pokemon Go, but I’m very close to getting all of the original Pokemon (that are available to my region). My goal was to try and get as many as possible, before they add  100 more to the game. Let’s see how far I can get. 

Anyway, I had a pretty fun weekend. One night we ended up at the bar near my place. We noticed a piano stored on the balcony, and wanted to play it. I think I convinced a guy to attempt to climb the balcony to play it, but I didn’t want to witness him getting kicked out, so I told him to not bother.
