Halloween Weekend Things

Hi!  I usually don’t say this, but Halloween Weekend, please don’t go!  It’s just that this weekend was the best combination of holiday spirit, beer drinking, perfect weather, donut eating and friend time and I really didn’t want it to end.  But I guess things on this side of Daylight Savings Time aren’t so bad.  It’s Monday but I woke up and the sun was already out, instead of it still being nighttime, so I’ll take it.

Yelp is killing it lately by offering me tickets to fun shows.  I got this little email alert on Friday afternoon and even though my first thought was “ugh, I just want to relax at home though,” a quick pep talk from Joey made me realize going to a free show actually sounded pretty fun.  And then I took it one step further and decided we should act like young Denverites and go out for a beer nightcap afterwards.

And UM, the show was soooo good.  It started out a bit slow but ended up being so funny.  It was called Murder for Two and was basically a “whodunit” murder mystery musical, except there were only two cast members!  One of them played the wannabe detective and the other played all nine suspects and he killed it.  We were laughing so hard at some points.  Highly recommended!  P.S. The bathroom stall door was staring at me…

Is now a good time to confess that I have been totally slacking on posting about our trip to Seattle?  Honestly, I’m really just avoiding the editing* of our photos.  That task just seems so daunting!  But I’ve also been caught up in free pizza, book club meetings, World Series watching, fall leaf admiring and donut making to get that final vacation recap posted in a timely manner.  I had grand plans to do it last night but then The Addams Family was on TV, sooooo.

*And by editing, I mean using Instagram on airplane mode to reformat every single picture into a neat little square and maybe also use the brighten feature because I believe this makes up for all my iPhone photography shortcomings.  A million professional photographers just rolled over in their graves.

Free pizza!  Every Monday this month, Pizzeria Locale has been giving away free pizza to anyone who brings in a Chipotle receipt.  Which is ideal for people who go to Chip on a weekly basis (HI, Joey!).  When we showed up, there was a legit line out the door.  I was having nightmare flashbacks to that time at Tartine, but the line actually moved pretty fast and at the end, I was rewarded with this fabulous Hawaiian pizza special.

We had October book group on Tuesday night and even though we all seemed kinda “meh” about the book (The Red Notebook), we had a fun discussion.  It’s an international club, so attendees aren’t always so consistent but the other people who have been coming every month are starting to feel like friends!  I’ve been shy my whole life and friends aren’t easy for me to make, so this feels like real life progress.  Whoa, didn’t mean to get all deep on you.  Anyway, this month we’re reading The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing.  I’m 10% in and already like it a lot.Read More »
