This month I turn 30. To mark such a remarkable event, I’m spending every day of October drenched in awesome-sauce.
It’s my sister’s birthday on Tuesday, and it was my birthday on Wednesday. Every year our birthdays are six days apart. This causes a single celebration of our birthdays. We ate. Mmm. Shira made cupcakes, they were good.
Then I went home, and changed. I put on a shirt, a sweater vest, a bow tie, and my Scrabble cuff links (thanks Emily), I also wore pants.
I went across the street, and met up with Nat, and we headed to aL’s place. Nat was wearing an excellent scrabble board costume, which had the problem/wonderfulness that everyone had to touch her boobs to play. She seemed to enjoy it. I enjoyed wearing matching cuff links. aL had an amazing costume. It was simply a shirt that said “I <3 Bob” and a name tag that said “Alexandra.” She was a Price is Right contestant!!! Allegra was there, and she was dressed as Jem, again, BORING. Ruhee was there, and dressed as a TTC employee, with an official TTC tie. I played her my TTC door chime ringtone. Dom was there, as an Irish guy, I didn’t inquire further.
The best part was hanging out in the kitchen when the door open and in walks this guy wearing a familiar jacket with elbow patches… perched on his head is a fez. I yell out “fezzes are cool.” He spins around, and replies “Yes they are,” notices my bow tie, and says “and so are bow ties.”
My night was complete.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gwmRSctJBI&w=450&h=335]
Bow ties are certainly cool. Nice style.
