What a weekend! (And it ain't over yet)
Unfortunately, we did not realize just how many people were going to be arriving late, so the first couple of hours of the party went by slowly with just a couple people here, but it was all good. But I was getting a bit worried that no one would show and that this party might not turn out that great. Boy was I wrong. Soon people starting showing up in droves. Laura had already been there with Brooke (a witch and a carebear, respectively). BigWill was the next to arrive, as Big Baby Retard. I'm not sure after that who all showed up in what order, but the guests were: Bill as an army man; Kyle as a witch, I think; Vickie as a French maid; Von as a devil; Drew as a transvestite; Will from work as a Civil War officer; Randall as a pirate; his girlfriend Alyssa as Alice in Wonderland; John as a psychopathic guy; Chris as a mental patient; Julie as Catwoman; Joe as Captain Hook; Heather as Tinkerbell; Kristen and her boyfriend Chris as formal dressed people; Tara as a Renaissance maid; Jessie as a witch. A couple people showed up and didn't stay long, that was Monica, her boyfriend, and thier friend Priscilla.
Once the party got going, it was awesome. Everything seemed to go perfectly, everyone looked great and the food seemed to disappear. The games - Find the skeleton hands and the Mummy Wrap - went perfectly also, won by Julie (for the hand game) and the team of Will from work and Joe (for the Mummy Wrap). Good job to them! Many fun moments were had. We ended up taking four and a half rolls of film. We have two of them back, and we're getting the rest tomorrow. I'm planning on making an album of Halloween '05. The costume contest was definately a highlight of the evening. Joe won best costume and BigWill won worst costume. Good job to them, they deserved their prizes! The party didn't end until two in the morning, and I stayed up an extra hour to clean everything up.
Today I had to go into work, where I nearly fell asleep until I got some caffiene and then bragged to the guys about what a great party it was and it was too bad that they couldn't make it. After work Joe and I picked up some of the photos and then picked up Heather from work. Then it was off to the movies to see Saw 2.
It was amazing! I was pretty sure it was going to be good, but this is one of those rare sequels that actually is as good as the first. I won't say that it's better than the first, as Joe did, but it certainly was good. Naturally, I won't be spoiling it here, but you know the tagline, "Oh yes, there will be blood"? Well, they're right. Lots of it. And I loved it. It really keeps you on the edge of your seat, and if you have a weak stomach, I don't recommend seeing this. But if you want a great thriller and puzzler, then see this. If you loved the first one, then see this.
Tomorrow I am cleaning here, going through the pictures with Joe and Heather, and I'm supposed to hang out with Will. (I'm tired of saying Will from work, blah) Hopefully we'll still be on to hang out, he said that he didn't know if he would be awake enough. Blah. But I'm hoping! Then Monday is Halloween, yay! I get to work and then come home, dress up and hand out candy. But I'm hoping that I can get together with Will, Nathan, and Monica and go trick-or-treating. If not, I'll enjoy seeing the little kids in thier costumes and hearing bad jokes.
I'll post more about the rest of the weekend after it happens!
