The 80s

So; the 80s is really fun! The clothes are fun, the music is cool and the dancing is rad.

Wearing a Dallas-style dress with huge shoulder pads and made of 100% polyester makes one sweat but it is all so worth it. THINK OF THE CALORIES!

Anyway after getting all dressed up with L we went to this bar downtown that a group had rented out for the party. K and her boyfriend were there and  it was so much fun. I started the night by getting fairly blotto but then of course sobered up as the night went on and the need for water because of excessive sweating increased.  Continue reading

Always happens to me

I have come to the conclusion that the most random days ever are eternally going to happen to me.

This is no bad thing though… it means that I rarely have a boring and dull day. Today started out menial enough. I got the bus into Seattle (where it was raining – again) and made my way to the first order of business for the day. This business being buying ballroom dancing shoes.

I had been putting off buying them at home for salsa because I thought that I would be able to get them cheaper here and that there was going to be a better range. So off I toddled to a shop downtown that I had found on Google. Now, this shop had gotten mixed reviews with people saying that the owner had an attitude problem and such.  Continue reading

BBQ etc

So on Saturday L and myself went to a BBQ. Over 100 people were there and it was held in Golden Park Gardens. It was a lovely day for it but I felt that maybe there was just too much of a crowd to get to know people.

We left around 7 and went to the cinema to see Water for Elephants. Such a good film but finished really late and by the time I got home everyone was in bed with the front door locked (seemingly they were awake but I really don’t think so). So I stayed at Ls house which was nice but a bit stressful because I hated that Ms family didn’t know where I was. I had texted M but she was already asleep.

Anyway the next morning L had booked to go on the Underground tour of Seattle and as I still hadn’t heard from M I had to go with her. The whole situation sucked because I was meant to be cooking dinner and everything. Anyway L and I did the tour, did the Smith tower and then went to Fremont, a suburb of Seattle to see the sites.  Continue reading

Shindig

So, you know, I had a shindig… to say goodbye to me and my awesomeness.  It was so much fun. Ended in my drunken rambling and then falling into a coma of a sleep while my friends all chatted in my hotel room.

It was really the first party I have ever thrown or night out that I have ever organised (and yes that is including birthdays) and it went splendidly! Everyone got on well. My Mam even came! Class!

Then it was for the hangover on Sunday, I got over it my eating vast amounts of greasy food and then going to see Submarine in the cinema which was fairly good if not a bit Catcher in the Rye. Damn it being so sunny here this weekend though; my sunglasses just did not block out enough of the rays.  Continue reading
