Halloween Party

Published October 25, 2015 by kemeah

Last night I went to a Halloween party thrown by a friend of my hubby’s. I went as Wednesday Addams:

This costume was probably a good move for me, because it gave me an excuse not to smile. I was in character instead of feeling awkward in a room full of people I didn’t know. I was in character instead of being annoyed that the hostess pulled on my wig. I was in character instead of being pissed that the couple’s damn dog kept trying to hump the party guests (my baby included).
Its damn unnerving to be in a room full of people that all know each other, except for you. I’m pretty sure I was invited over as a decoration for the party, not as a guest. The hostess thinks the nerd goth thing I’ve got going on is fascinating….or, whatever…
I eventually went and grabbed a bag of games out of my car (all ways a game mistress I suppose)and set up in the living room to play with the few other people not engrossed in conversation, which included someone’s kid that got dragged along. For the record… I tried mingling… I promise….Hell, I think I have met some of those people before….But, other than comments on how cute my baby was, I didn’t really get any conversation out of anyone. My baby is super cute though:

Well, I think that event counted as my reminder that I’m really not fun at parties (which explains why no one comes to mine), but I did get a lot of candy out of the ordeal:

The things I do for candy….

ValleyCon

We spent a decent portion of yesterday at ValleyCon.
Its a fairly small, local convention; I described it to someone yesterday as a costumed swapmeet. It was super fun, some of the vendors even remembered us from other events!
I went as Ariel:

I could not find a decent mermaid outfit for my little one, so she was Snow White instead:

Hey, at least we rocked the princess theme.
My kid is super sociable (so, the opposite of her mama) and she had a great time getting to talk to everyone at the con.
I lucked into a bunch of Kamen Rider toys:

The vendor didn’t know or care what the were and just wanted rid of them so I got them for cheap. So, all and all a super fun day.

Game Night

Last night, the hubby and I managed to pull ourselves away from binge watching Gravity Falls long enough to play a couple of games with another family.
We tried out Munchkin Steampunk:

Of course I like steampunk, it combines two of my favorite things: science fiction and Victorian fashion (goth).
It was fun and, as usual, full of punny cards:

I think this one would mix pretty well with Munchkin Oz, may have to try that….
Then I finally got to try out Love2Hate.

It more or less plays like Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples minus having to google people’s names.

We had a blast with it and we were able to let our friend’s 12 year old play (sure, she’s played Cards Against Humanity, but this didn’t go over her head quite as much.

That’s all we played because we all decided to go get ice cream… Pumpkin pecan ice cream exists….Its amazing….
