wow, i hadn't realized i hadn't posted in FOUR DAYS. much has happened, i suppose.
i got an 85% on the singing portion of my ear training final, because i lost my sol. (ha, soul.) i was nervous beyond belief, which is what went wrong. i could have gotten it otherwise. i volunteered to go first so i could get it over with. as i left, two classmates, naomi and brittany, chased me down the hall to say their goodbyes and to see how i did (will see brit next quarter for the next chain of music theory/ear training classes, but not naomi.)
went out with jess and daniel to eat asiany cuisine for jess's birthday, but apparently they are closed until further notice due to a kitchen fire. ugh. so we went to a pizza place and sat down. saw everything cost a cajillion dollars for a tiny platter of food, so we went to izzy's instead.
then we went to Wunderland which is a nickel arcade down in portland. stuffing all the tickets we won into jess' pants, he ended up procuring approximately 1200 of them, which he promptly traded for a purple glitter lava lamp that cost 1296. ("but it's my birthday! can't i just HAVE it?!?") i so want to go again for my birthday, but to the larger one downtown that has the seperate secret room with all the really
then was on our way to the clackamas town center when we were stuck at a traffic light in front of a bar that said "HOME OF THE HAWGARITA!", which led to our first favorite quote of the evening:
daniel: why dont' we have a hawgarita and go to the mall?
the hawgarita is a giant marguerita, of course, possibly strawberry in flavor, though you couldn't tell through the alcohol. they topped each one with a cherry. we were freaked out upon walking in because it was filled with a ton of people screaming at a football game. as some of you may have even experienced, we were kind of the beginning of a bad joke: "two gay guys walk into a sports bar..." as we meander through the crowd to the bar, some people may have been able to smell our fear, as one lady behind us screamed "BROWNS FANS ONLY! ONLY BROWNS FANS ALLOWED IN HERE, YOU HAVE TO GO!!" we looked at each other in horror and she giggled "just kidding! enjoy yourself!" (and to show you how much of a sports fan i am NOT, i had no idea what she was saying to us, but caught "browns" and "only", and thought it was a racial thing, as she was black, but was confused because she was the only one at the entire table she was sitting at. my silly mind.)
so we order our drinks ( Collapse )
much fun was had - so much that i could have sworn it was MY birthday, too :) i love adventures.
speaking of birthdays, this just happened in neopets:
