Actually it’s been over 2 months since my last “Best Things” post, but if I had more time to write these things I’d have less to write about, right? So let’s just sum up October:
First there was the ZPC wherein I ruined the childhoods of many with my Zombie Princess pals, and then there was Halloween. For that, I was Charlie from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for obvious reasons.
A lot of girls use Halloween as an excuse to wear underwear in public; I just went a different way with it. I bullied a buddy into going as Mac (aka I lent him a t-shirt and drew fake tattoos on his arms), and Manolo was a cat, so we did our best to reenact this video:
Overall I give Halloween (and October) a solid A.
First there was vacation with the Ginger.
Then there was my dad’s first Vikings game.
They lost, of course. And cousin Adrian had to be taken out of the game with an ankle injury. Really not great, but it was awesome to be there with Pops anyway. It’s also great that he’s quit smoking, and a non-smoking Pops is a snacking Pops. We had popcorn and Twizzlers for lunch. Happy Thanksgiving!
Next, actual Thanksgiving happened, and was lovely.
And finally: the Ginger’s birthday! Three costume changes were involved and we hopped all over Lowertown St. Paul: we started out swimming at the Holiday Inn, then a dinner at Kincaid’s (I am not that restaurant’s target audience, but even the vegetarian side dishes were beyond delicious), and then dancing/drinks at Barrio and the Bulldog. It absolutely destroyed MY last birthday, which was spent sick on my couch with a Die Hard marathon.
A lot of great things have already happened so far in December, but you’ll just have to wait until mid-February or whenever I update this again to find out about that.
