READY RED ONE!

I was an X-wing for Halloween

Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s my favorite holiday. Since I’ve moved back to where I don’t have to deal with annoying college kids and have wonderful things like ample parking, this means we’ll actually have trick or treaters. Not sure how to deal with it though, as my dog loses his mind every time the doorbell rings. We plan to go out for dinner and drinks tonight, so we could just hold him back when the doorbell rings until we head out for the night. But I don’t know if I want to deal with it. It’s easier just to eat the bags of candy ourselves, haha.

Anyway, I went to another Halloween party over the weekend. Fiona always does an A+ job with the decorations, this year was no exception. Andy made me into an X-Wing from Star Wars. I went with Red One so I could dress as R2D2, of course! The party was zombie-themed and my friend Emily did an awesome job with gory makeup. I’m sure her face is probably still stained red though. I had a hard time navigating the asteroid belt (party goers) in my giant costume. So I had to stay put for a couple hours until I took the X-Wing part off. I felt like Jabba the Hutt sitting around taking up 2 chairs in my giant costume. Maybe I could be Jabba next year? haha!

GFY AMAZON SELLERS OF SAILOR PLUTO PROPS! 

I’m finally getting around to posting about a Halloween party I went to on Saturday night. It was with a bunch of friends. I dressed as Sailor Pluto. I picked her because she has this cool staff, despite not knowing much about her character. I haven’t watched the old Sailor Moon anime series since I was a kid, but I am not sure if Sailor Pluto is really in many episodes of the newer Sailor Moon Crystal series. I’ve only watched a few episodes of it so far.

Anyway, the costume itself was a little pricey. It was also extremely short, barely covers “me arse” so I rocked a petticoat with it. I still loved the costume though, it was a hit, especially at the bar after. I was dared to order a drink with my staff. It took a several attempts, but I completed the task and got a free beer out of some 23 year-old kid hanging around us.  I guess that is what happens when you pick a lesser-known character from the series. But I wasn’t anticipating the staff she uses only be sold for over $100 on Amazon. To that I say, GO FUCK YOURSELF GREEDY SELLERS! Know what I did instead? Purchased a clearance section Queen of Hearts staff, some spray paint, and foam heart online. Andy painted it and remodeled the top of the staff for me. PLUS it lights up, which the ones on Amazon don’t do. Turns out, Sailor Pluto is a pretty cool sailor scout. She is the guardian of space and time, and also darkness. BADASS! Apparently she can also stop time, which is pretty amazing. I didn’t have a chance to test out this superpower. 

The party was fun. We had not one, but TWO cereal killers! We also had Mrs. Doubtfire, Voodoo Doll, Little Red Riding Hood,  some Ricks (Rick & Morty),  and my sailor scout friends (including a clever Sailor Goth!), and other cool costumes. We did some dancing, and watched movies, all while being stalked by the kitty that wouldn’t let us pet her. Naughty Babette! Around midnight, we walked in a weirdo-parade to the bar to show off our costumes. I’m sure we were quite the vision.

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.

FACE OF DUNKINS 

Yesterday a ton of my Facebook friends, posted this funny SNL video featuring Casey Affleck . I feel like it might be lost on people that aren’t from New England. But it’s hilarious! 

Over the weekend, Andy and I saw Manchester By the Sea. It’s a movie that Casey Affleck wrote and starred in. I didn’t know what to expect from the movie. It’s an independent film, and we saw it at a small theater near my new office. 

I haven’t been to that theater in over 15 years, it used to only show foreign films. I went with my my mom once to see an Italian movie back in the day. I actually liked the movie. ANYWAY, Manchester by the Sea was a bit depressing. I got a little teary-eyed at some parts. Overall, I liked it. But it’s definitely a tear-jerker.  YE BE WARNED! We also went to dinner after at one of my favorite restaurants. That cheered me up a tad.

This week is short, but will drag. After Thursday, I’m not going back to work until January. I usually try to take the last week of December off. Hope I can continue this tradition. I also took last Friday off. I was sad I missed our company Christmas party, but lounging around my house prevails.

PARTY TIME

It’s been a crazy month filled with holiday parties and such. So blogging has taken a back seat. Last night I went to a customer appreciation party at our local watering hole. It was filled with free drinks, billiards, and a Santa Pikachu!

This week my work moved offices. I love the new office! I mean, it has little to do with the fact my commute is 10 minutes instead of 35! I didn’t realize I’d been driving there almost seven years, until I did the math. Yeah, math isn’t my strong suit. More on the new office later, gotta save up some blog content for another day.

I haven’t been in the office any Friday this month. It’s pretty sweet. I also took the last week of the month off, so score!

GOBBLE GOBBLER! 

Thanksgiving break is over and it was too darn short! I went out for drinks on Thanksgiving Eve with some friends. I had a good time, I enjoyed some delicious cheesy artichoke dip, beers, and vodka sodas. 

Turkey day was a busy one. We had dinner with Andy’s family, and dessert with my family. we brought home tons of leftovers, my brother made a 28lbs turkey. I made a crumb cake and it came out pretty good!

I went out for drinks again with friends on Friday. Andy found a hat in the bathroom and insisted on wearing it. TBD if we’ll get lice. YUCK! I told him to get rid of that damn thing, and tossed it behind some bar stools, haha. 

We also went to the dine-in movie theater.  I ate fish and chips, and washed it down with a giant bucket of popcorn. Oh yes, we saw Bad Santa 2. it was pretty funny, and the kid reminded me of Elf. haha!

Now it’s back to work. Not looking for wars to it, but must be done. Hope everyone had a good holiday.

HELLO, BLOG!

wp-1474043477817.jpg

Sorry, I haven’t been blogging as much lately. I doubt anyone has noticed, so no harm there! Last weekend I celebrated my birthday. I was all “bah humbug”about it at first (because I don’t want to get old!), but we all had a very good time. I used the downstairs area of this new place called Article 24. I like the atmosphere there, and they have PARKING. Which is a rarity around here.

I went a little early and had dinner with friends. Once we were done eating, we took over the bar area. My friends began to shuffle in, and we had just enough seats at the bar for everyone. It got a little loud when two large parties sat down to eat, but they didn’t stay too long. We enjoyed some drinks, including ones that are set on fire. We ended the night at The Drop, which surprisingly wasn’t that crowded.

On Sunday, I didn’t go to the fashion swap because Andy and I went to the last day of the Brimfield Flea Market. We had a lot of fun spending the day looking around. We also got really amazing donuts, and hot dogs. I saw loads of interesting things for sale, but I was good and only bought a few things. I grabbed a couple of spin drums for myself and Erin. We are going to see if Ralph Macchio will sign them for us. haha!
