There was a station Halloween party last night. And Thursday night, too. Thursday’s was the official on-campus engineer-apprentice mixer. Last night was the “unofficial” party. I hadn’t been to any station parties before, namely because of a reliance on the buses to get off-campus in previous years, so this was my first.As I’m not really one for the drink, I was one of the handful of sober people there. … But I did try a sip of some pumpkin rum … which was … eh, not quite my thing. There were also a few others who imbibed a bit, but seemed to sober up relatively quickly, so I was hanging with them for a good bit of the party, but also walking around.Below are a few reasons why I love station people, namely for things that happened at the party.
- Talking about Dexter with an apprentice named Alex who was in a flannel two-piece and a banana costume. Turns out that he was one of the Bananas in Pajamas … kinda? XD
- Being one of the few sober/relatively sober people and asking around to make sure that people were feeling okay, as well as how tipsy they were on a scale of 1 to Floor.
- Sam finally got to tell me that I’ve got a really nice chin (or something like that) … mainly because I was dressed as Sam Axe. And then he said that if he knew I was going to be Sam at the party, he would’ve brought a pitcher of mojitos. XD
- Talked Doctor Who with a few people … but it was more of a serious look at the recent series and such … but it’s like “No, it’s a fun show, and yeah, not all the episodes are on a certain level, but I like that episode even if you don’t and why are you picking at that episode and no, I didn’t quite like that episode, and QUIETITSAFUNSHOWSSSSSSSSSSSH!”
And that’s why I love being with station people. XD
Yeah, I’ve been kind of busy keeping up (or trying to) with readings and stuff … mainly for my 18th Century Novels class. Behind on Joseph Andrews and Shamela, Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, and The History of Pompey The Little … and Moby-Dick for my American Romanticism class. And a few PDFs and a few things for other classes. But so far, my two essays have gone rather well. So I’m aiming to get said readings done and whatnot this weekend and maybe back to Game of Thrones finally? XD We shall see.
