Pretty sure my noggin is still not firing on all cylinders yet. Although, I doubt it ever really is.
Saturday started at about 7 or 8 a.m. with a mad rush of chores. Matthew put quite a list together for the day and we ran around knockin' each task off the list until there was only booze and food errands left.
At about 4, some folks started to show up and we got our costumes on and started actin' like fools.
This was the first year there was no keg. Was kinda sad but we made doo (haha) with lots of cheap garbage beers....which makes for very full recycling bins and trash cans.
---------- (stuff went on later Monday and then I crashed early. Tuesday was full of running around, so now I'm writing this on Wednesday. keep up.) ------------
11 XL pizza boxes are still a tower out front because recycle day isn't til Friday. We probably could've built a clubhouse had they not been rained on. We also still have a big cooler full of aforementioned garbage beers and neither of us wants to drink them.
I found a pair of men's Hanes boxer briefs on the bathroom floor if anyone wants to claim those (if not, I'll keep them as a souvenir like last year's tiny spidermanties).
Anyway, enough about all the garbage, let's get back to the thing...
So, we did shit, and then Michelle did my hairs so I could be a Fighter.
Matthew threw on his Flash costume and we went outside to go start playing and hangin' with a handful of folks and getting the pizza situated and crap and stuff.
Among the costumes were:
Pats from Absolutely Fabulous.
Red Fraggle from Fraggle Rock
a Fallen Angel
a few Fairies
2 sets of Flinstones
a Foreign Tourist
Flo from Mel's Diner
a Fuckin' Pregnant lady
and a Fuckin' Surprise (thanks, Tom and Martha!!)
I'm sure I'm Forgetting some.
The costumes were great - the slide and bouncehouse were awesome, as always....and the pool was.....
Later in the night there were Fire dancers and synchronized swimming along with grandiose toasts and drunk jenga.
There's some great footage I'll be piecing together this weekend and hope to have it done over the next few days.
-------------(now its Saturday and I need to recap the week)------------
Monday, we had dance class and the big boss gave us some feedback and pointers. I feel we'll be better next Tuesday when we go in. His pointers were simple but made a huge difference. We've discovered that 6:30 pm is NOT our time slot. We much prefer the 8:45. Hustle is our shit, which is an easy transition into Swing (which is the whole reason I signed us up). Waltz we kinda choked on since it had been a couple weeks.
Tuesday, was some family stuff I won't talk about here.
Wednesday, I got my hairs did and then we went to see Static-X at the Beacham. They were awesome and I got to push boys into the pit. Andrew was pitblockin' me. He's very protective. I bought him a shirt and some shots cuz he took good care of me. Planet Pizza afterwards was heavenly.
Thursday, was Thursday.
Friday, we went to a birthday shindig for a musician friend and chatted up some new folks, drank a bunch of rum, and watched some beer pong but gave the Stephenson Slip before the cake was cut.
This morning, I awoke to the smell of Matthew cooking organic bacon.
*Obviously, it isn't Monday anymore.
