I am in a weird headspace tonight. I am just feeling ecletic and old-timey and cliché. I don’t even know why. I basically want to make a (second) cup of tea and sit in my room and chat with a friend or watch a Harry Potter movie or read a new book. Right now, I am reading The Namesake for my English class. I have to admit that my expectations were pitifully low, but I am finidng myself wrapped up in the story and reading it doesn’t feel like a chore. It is a very eye-opening, enjoyable, deep book with a lot of symbolism that teaches about Bengali culture. I know it doesn’t sound liek muhc, but I highly suggest you read it.
Anyways, as I mentioned, I’m feeling a little cliché. My sister, Rachel, is getting married tomorrow! I can’t even believe that. It feels like the date approached so quickly and now it’s here. I can’t even imagine how she must be feeling. I am really happy for her and her soon-to-be husband, David. I’m sure they’ll be happy. Today was the rehersal dinner, which was actually quite fun! I just hope everything runs smoothly tomorrow.
Her wedding may or may not have been the cause of my clichéness. Things this week have just been… weird. Things with friends are odd and with family it’s weird. I don’t know. I have always believed that a good night with friends or by yourself is therapeutic. I am probably going to watch a good movie and relax. I may even take a bath if I feel fancy.
Yesterday was Halloween. Let’s get one thing straight. I usually hate Halloween. I think the costumes are dumb and overpriced, the candy gives kids cavities and diabetes, the decorations are cheesy, the ‘horror’ movies are lame, the haunted houses are lackluster, etc. I think you got my point. But my good friend, Bond, convinced me to come to his small Halloween bash with a few of our friends. After about four hours of berating me, I agreed. More to shut him up than anything else.
So, I did vampire makeup because I already mentioned that I think Halloween costumes are awful. I used a good YouTube tutorial and some online photos to achieve it.
At the party, we had a great home cooked meal and went reverse trick or treating. We basically carried a full-sized door with us, rung someone’s door bell, put our door in front of theirs, they knocked on ours, we answered, thanked them for coming to our house, then gave them candy with no explanation. It was extrememly entertaining to see people’s faces. Then Bond and I had a weird pillow/wrestling/screaming fight where we hurled a giant, plush banana at each other and screamed Harry Potter things at each other. There are no words.
Well, this was a blog post about nothing, but I hope you found it entertaining to say the least!
