Ha-LOL-ween!

.... aaaannnd C'est L'Halloween!

Monday-Weens are so awkward. By Sunday night it feels like it's over before it began. 

I'm not going to lie I'm very disappointed in myself this year. The only part I liked about my costume was that it cost $4.99. You see, I like to pride myself in being a crafty bitch (see first post). But this year, I bought my costume and it feels so wrong. I was ROBBED! Yeah, I robbed myself. It's possible. Because I procrastinated on costume ideas. And $4.99 is enough to buy my dignity. 

Hilarious thing happened over the summer: the local bar that we frequent to prey on young First Years got renovated. It's called Lunenburg now. (Shoutout to peeps from Lunenburg, Ontario even though I think they're referring to the East Coast) I haven't eaten there yet, but I'm glad to see it's getting great reviews on Urban Spoon. -------> Lunenburg Pub & Bar on Urbanspoon
The Friday night experience was pretty much the same as Minglewoods. Notable difference was the live band and less pool tables.

Side note: I have a beef with bars that alternate between a live band and a DJ. You get pumped up with some Jay-Z and Katy Perry, and just when your fist pumping arm loosens up the band comes on and is like, "sha-la-la-la this is boring Ooooh". And THEN just when you switch gears and are down for a journey going anywhere, the band takes a break and your midnight train going anywhere turns into the party rock bus.

Pick a genre. Stick to it.

I digress. It must have been Captain Morgan night at the 'Burg - Can I call it that? Am I cool enough? - because The Band was throwing free shit into the audience. I definitely hit the free swag jackpot with the T-shirt I caught. Less cool shit included flip-flops and the shot glasses attached to those Mardi Gras beads.

Here I am with the shirt while dressed like a male stripper:
No, not my $4.99 costume. I wish.
I must say, people were pretty jealous of this thing. Do you know how many times I had to say, "fuck off you dirty hippie, I'm not trading you for a shot glass on a string of butt beads"
