No Monster Mash For You

This Saturday was spent driving back and forth on WA167 in search of a pumpkin patch-corn maze frolicking-cider drinking-and hay ride fun. I attempted to play Monster Mash while tromping through the maze and was immediately reprimanded for playing it, and then placing the phone near my mouth to turn it into a mini dubstep (is there anyone else that does this..? It’s a revelation)

After accidentally taking i90 (my fault) and then ending up at some sort of outdoor grocery store that in fact, did NOT have candy corn, huge let down (also my fault), we arrived to the field of pumpkins where mostly families were picking out the perfect pumpkin for their front porch. Jessie and I booked it straight to the UW vs WSU corn maze.

I dub this photo “Lord of the Flies, Sucks to your Ass-mar”

Lesson learned- Corn mazes are damn hard…like getting dizzy, lots o corn hard. Jessie led the way, and if you find yourself in a corn maze during this fabulous time of year, and are the follower, not the leader…whisper directions left or right at each turn.

It took about thirty minutes for us to accidentally find ourselves back at the start, where we threw in the towel and went off to find our pumpkins.

Behold Spike and Spud, the new pumpkins for the porch

For anyone who has ever tried to take a photo, with their phone, while stuffing their head in a pumpkin face- you feel my pain, yes?

And so it was marked, the first of October, to be a month full of cider (only the good stuff), pumpkins, BBQs in down jackets, Halloween decorations, avoiding the Monster Mash per Jessie’s request (i’m still going to play it), and yes…room mate pranks. This is my passive aggressive way of warning them since only two out of four of them have facebook and realistically thinking, only one probably reads this.

If you can fit into your washer and or dryer, I highly recommend this prank. I did this my senior year of college while living with seven girls. It was a miraculous tetris fit, and I waited in the dark, with the dirty clothes, until someone came to open it up. It was probably one of the best pranks I’ve done, and since I can’t fit and refuse to try to fit in our old ass dryer in the Green Lake house…it’s time to get creative.

iPhone turned Gopro, lesssgooo.

Also, please look at this adorable kid..the end.

Yo Friday, you were good to me.

5:40 am knock on the door, my alarm had been quacking off for about 10 minutes (yes, I wake up to a pre-programmed mallard duck calling), time to head to Capitol Hill and take Jessie’s Barre3 class.

Greatest way to wake up ever, listening to this song while holding positions my body didn’t think possible. Props to Jessie for this irresistibly good song.

(and for the record Jessie, I was damn sore the next day)

It was then off to Skillet up on Capitol Hill where servers wearing their yes, server uniform of yes, flannel, brought coffee and the kind of breakfast sandwich that closed up a few arteries on the way down. And after all of this excitement pre 9:00 am, I decided to make a real morning out of it and run round Green Lake. Pandora of choice: Prince. First song that piped in, this:

Plans were made to watch Ryan Gosling do his thing on the big screen but alas Jessie and I ended up enjoying the muggy night weather with beers on the Six Arms patio. Our server boldly called me a cigarette Nazi (I simply asked if the clam chowder came with cigarette butts as he was on a smoke break conveniently conversation distance from the table), and he literally (Aaaaaaanneee Perkins!) did a running man-thumbs up dance while trying to convince us to take any shot ending in bomb, we discussed favorite Seinfeld episodes, and I made a reference to Jersey Shore completely out of context- the reference itself was idiotic let alone trying to validate what I was even talking about.


A few filtered photos from the Duck fun

During and post duck game. We asked a guy to take a photo of us near the Red Door in Fremont..clearly failed.

Jessie, clearly you’re swacking my lazy lid, get outtaaa heeyaa

Accidental hipster photo, OOPS
