A Halloween at Bar Pink.


"I'm a lobster!" and "I hate you."





Me and Micah enjoying the festivities at Bar Pink. Micah's looking a little Asian, but thats ok. We like Asians.


Since I haven't been feeling well, have hickeys all over my neck, and am tired...I was tempted to just stay in last night. But, I am beginning to know myself, and know that sometimes I NEED to make my extrovert self venture out to get energy from talking to strangers and laughing and drinking with friends. Oh, I am always so glad I did...but EXTRA glad I did on Halloween! I went down to North Park and just walking around seeing everyone in their costumes is MY FAVORITE thing of the year! It's like the city went crazy, it has to be the best holiday to spend in the city. Micah and I went to Bar Pink, which is one of my favorite bars of all time (pink and elephant and vintage theme? Sign me up!). EVERYONE was dressed up except maybe Micah and a handful of other people...highlights included:
A Frieda and Van Gogh couple
Milla Jovovich from Resident Evil
Star Trek ANYTHING
a LEGIT wizard with a real beard. Someone said "look! its the hangover guy dressed as a wizard!"
Marie Antoinette
A guy just wearing a speedo and a Mexican wrestling mask
The Bumble bees were cute and saucy without looking like prostitutes
Team Steve Zissou
Big Lebowski characters
Fred and Wilma Rubble

Those were probably my favorites. And the girls dressed all skanky looked RIDICULOUS compared to all the legit costumes everyone else had. It was funny to see how sad and pathetic their attempts at getting attention were.

As you can see, I was a cat! I wore a cute little black dress and tights, paid $3 for ears and drew my face on. Normally I am Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffanys, but it was time for a change.

Anyway, poor Micah was trapped talking to this super weird guy...she seemed to be ok with it so I ventured to get another drink (I remember thinking, well shit, Im going to need another drink if we're stuck talking to this guy). However, I got distracted at the bar and started talking to this guy dressed as someone from the Tea Bag Party (so funny). I was flirting, because YAY I can do that now without crying, and then I just sat down and we ended up talking for like 2 hours. He has a real job he loves and he is really smart...he knew a ton about politics and we talked about travel, work and the economy, the government, etc. Since I am not looking for ANYTHING, I am just totally myself when I go out...fun and flirty without trying too hard, it's actually really nice. And suddenly I am all attractive to people-how ironic.

His friend was all drunk with this LONG wig that would hit me in the face every time he would talk to me and he was SO funny...he kept telling me,
"you should go for this guy. Hes great. He's tricky though...and you might not know what Im talking about now, but in a few months down the road you'll say...oh yeah, that guy was right."

"you know what, I like you, I approve...you know what, you are smart and beautiful...most of these bitches here got nothing behind the eyes...it's really annoying...but your great...your the whole package...go for this guy..."

"what are you doing now? Do you want to come hang out with us and play video games?"

We were just laughing and laughing, I made a lot of witty comments back to him which I think earned me a lot of points. He was too funny.

So at the end of the night the guy I had been talking to (not his funny friend) asked for my number, which was so nice! I actually haven't had that happen in a very long time. And he was smart. I like this. I'm not obsessed enough to wait by the phone or anything...in fact I kind of forgot about it until I started posting today. But if he does call, wouldn't that be just dandy? Either way, it was so great to meet someone new and talk about good things and FORGET about Number 2 and my hickey shenanigans for a few hours.

Tonight we have family dinner and trick or treating with my 3 year old cousin Luke- He's dressed as a zoo keeper:)

I don't know how much longer I can keep this neck coverup going...yikes.
