another danny weekend…
friday night we went to dave’s annual halloween bash, and i was quite impressed with the enthusiasm and creativity with which everyone assembled a costume. i think my “best costume” prize would have to go to jeff, who attended as a nun. i punked out and went as a cat, quite possibly the easiest and cheeziest of halloween couture. but whatever. it got the job done. and it wasn’t as lazy as danny’s costume. he went as a soldier.
saturday we bought a pumpkin to carve* and decided to stay in for the night. we rented house of d, which i’ve wanted to see for some time. i was nervous, as it passed through theaters without the smallest peep of praise or otherwise (or at least seemed to do so, but i’m often unaware of the goings-on off-campus). i was pleasantly surprised, however, because it was really good. it’s directed by one of my boyfriends and features robin williams, a man who — despite his manic manic manic craziness and oh-so-hairiness — is able to perfectly portray those strangely sad yet hiding it characters. probably because he is one himself.
we also spent some time figuring out the wedding save-the-date cards and invitations, and they are going to be fantastic! i would hash out the details here, but i don’t want to give away all the fun wedding details. danny’s designs are great, and he is allowing me to insist on hand-addressing the outer envelopes. as long as i do it myself. and i am fine with this. 340 days to go, people.
not much else is going on. for the most part i am frantically reading reading reading and attempting to sort out paper topics that refuse to be sorted out. i will be free at last free at last thank god almighty free at last of coursework at the end of this year. that seems like a very long time from now.
i will conclude this entry with the VERY exciting…

The horror! The horror!
I’m a super scooper
Maybe I’m marrying the wrong guy…
