Smashing Pumpkins (Literally)

Highs and Lows of the weekend.

I spent most of my Saturday in bed, as one adult does. I think I did laundry. I definitely folded clothes at some point.

In an effort to live simpler, I’ve been getting rid of things I don’t need. Clothes and shoes are a big part of that effort (or problem, depending on how you want to look at it). I’ve accumulated a lot of coats over the years. My bubble coat is a particular favorite, circa the Erin Fetherston collection from Target. I’ve worn it twice and refuse to get rid of it.

They say you only need one dress coat- I have four.

But I didn’t do any of that. Instead I stared at my shoe rack for half an hour and watched TV.

Saturday night was bros night at The Stress Factory in New Brunswick. When I say bros night, I mean that I hung out with three intoxicated bros and my boyfriend. Oh the excitement. 2/3 of the bros fell asleep half way through Joey Diaz’s stand up. The other 1/3 sat at the front of the table and wore his vest the entire time. Their bill was over a hundred dollars.

While out for breakfast the next morning, I got ogled by a group of older Korean men wearing track suits. They may or may not play soccer at a park nearby. What’s more noticeable than a table full of old track-suited Asian dudes? Nothing.

I told myself it was because I am just so darn pretty, but they probably noticed that I was with a white guy and thought, “We lost another one!”

Then it was time to smash some pumpkins.

I learned two things- slow motion videos are hilarious and I look 30% more Asian on camera than I thought.

Even though I expected more of a splatter effect, it was still incredibly satisfying.

The low of the weekend was the attacks in Paris on Friday evening. I am sad and angry that this happened. My heart goes out to all of the victims and their families.
