Well, I'm not a big party person usually. I just make appearances, but usually don't stay long at parties anymore. Well, starting this past Thursday, that has changed.
A friend of mine, Karen, needed a date for a party Thursday night. I'm one of those people that if someone will ask, especially if it's a friend in need of a date for an event, then I have no problems with going. It wasn't the most fun party...matter of fact, it was not very good. But I knew some people there, so that made it fun. It was a Halloween party, so I decided I would dress as a thug. I was going to wear a wife-beater (A-shirt), hang my pants from my the bottom of my butt, and wear my black LA Dodgers hat that I got at Dodgers stadium when I was 13 (thanks Dad) with a white bandana under it. Well, it ended up being kinda cool outside, so I wore a white shirt over the 'beater. I thought I looked pretty thug. Karen needed to stay 'till the end so that she could help clean up (that wasn't part of the deal! haha), so I got to stay for a while. I did get to take home some Dr. Pepper and candy for helping clean up.
The next night (Friday), Sarah Heal was having a Halloween costume party. So, I went as a thug again. Sarah Gomez went with me, and about 6 other choir people were there. We kinda kept to ourselves in the back of the house, spending most of the time setting fire to a pumpkin...man, that's fun!!! Around 9:30, we went to campus because school was showing Batman Begins for free!! Yay! I loved the movie just as much this second time. Afterwards, Sarah G., Emily, Kyle and I ended the night with IHOP coffee.
The next night was my turn to have a party. We were having a Scary Movie Night. I invited a decent amount of people, but usually not everyone shows up. Saturday night, however, I was actually wondering where I was going to put people. Luckily (spacewise), some of the people I had actually been counting on coming didn't come, so I guess that helped, though I'm giving them a hard time for not showing up. We watched Mind Hunters, Hide and Seek, and the Others. We had rented The Shining, but blockbuster put the wrong movie behind the right box (or something like that). Anyway, about half of the people stayed for all 3 movies. I spent the second movie getting my arm squeezed off by Sarah Gomez, and the third movie between the two Sarah's, with Sarah G. squeezing my arm, and Sarah H. jumping a lot. Man, that was real tough for me (haha!). Anyway, I ended up staying up all night talking with the Sarah's and Emily. Sarah Heal left around 4am, but Sarah G. and Emily stayed until 5pm. Yes, that's PM! It was a lot of fun, and since I don't have church on Sunday mornings, I didn't have to worry about sleep.
So, yeah, this weekend was actually a lot of fun. I can't think of the last time I stayed up that long talking, much less with 3 female friends. I'm a pimp! haha Just kidding!
