Zombies and Corn (but no zombicorns)

I may be getting burned out on school, but I'm still taking time to savor those truly college experiences while I still can. Tonight was one of those night, as less than an hour ago I was on a crowded front porch with a bunch of my drunk friends, wearing a toilet paper costume, ducking as a wounded butterfly kept trying to land on my face. It was my friend Kirk's 21st birthday party, and it was pretty ridiculous.

The theme was sci-fi. We had a cut-open styrofoam head with exposed spaghetti brains on the table and Dawn of the Dead in the dvd player, except for when Zakk challenged me to DDR. We were both terrible, although he was surprisingly not terrible for a guy with muscular dystrophy. Kirk's mom sent him 21 counts of 21 different things, so we had 21 bouncy balls, 21 jars of bubbles, 21 party blowers, etc. In case you've never heard it, I can assure you that 21 people blowing 21 party blowers simultaneously makes an indescribable noise.

We were all supposed to dress up like sci-fi characters, even though only about half of us did. Lame. I went as a PG version of the girl from The Fifth Element. I'm not really comfortable enough with my body to not wear a shirt, so I did. Hah. I did my best to recreate her outfit using toilet paper and tape, but it was pretty difficult. Most people could tell who I was, though....once I told them. :-P

The one thing that's sometimes awkward about this group is that most of them are dating each other. It's not a problem, really. They do their best not to make me like the wheel of a certain odd number. When they act all couple-y, though, I feel like I should go away and let them have their couple moment. The trouble with booze is that it makes people act especially couple-y. And tonight we had the added bonus of two people who are not a couple deciding to act rather couple-y anyway. Sigh. It just made me a little lonely. Well, at least I had Leah and Andrew Jarboe to entertain me.

On an unrelated note, I went to the corn maze earlier today with Christopher, Rachel, and Justin. It wasn't as cool as the corn maze we have back home, but it was still kind of fun. It got less fun and more frustrating as we got more lost. I guess we weren't exactly lost; we kept finding ways out. We just never found the official way out that we were searching for. That was a little disappointing. I also tried to befriend some chickens that were hanging out by the maze, but a little boy chased them away too soon. After the maze, we went back to Christopher's and watched tv while we ate pizza that gave me the shits. Woot.

In other news, I think I have officially gotten Christopher hooked on Glee! Woohoo!! :-P And I should probably go to sleep now. Goodnight!

  1. I just went to the corn maze tonight! Ours was pretty fun though. I like your blog and the way you write. That Yeero Yeero place sounds amazing. I wish there was one where I live. We don't even have a Panda Express or decent Indian food. Sad day.
