Weigh-In Wednesday: 151.6

I kicked some serious ass last night working on my Halloween costume.  There is still a lot of work to be done though, and only one night left to do it in.  I was a little worried there for a minute that I wouldn’t be able to live up to my Katy Perry costume from last year, but I think this is going to be just as cool.  I am kinda impressing myself with my ability to sew and put a pretty cool theme together, especially since I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve actually sewn something in my life.  With that being said, it still isn’t my favorite thing to do since I’m constantly poking my fingers with the needle.  🙂

For those of you who live in the Birmingham area, there are several great things to do in town this weekend.  First, Friday night is the traditional Rocky Horror Picture Show and costume contest at the Alabama Theatre.  It is definitely one of my favorite Halloween events in town.  I usually get there pretty early to watch (and sometimes participate) in the two costume contests, dance to DJ Stevo (whose V mask will be extra relevant this year), then I stay for about 3/4s of the movie itself before heading off to some other parties around town.  Saturday night is the big Peaches and Scream block party on 2nd North, then my friend Philip’s annual party on 1st North, and finally the always super awesome MCCS Halloween Bash at Avondale Castle.  They have the best drag costume show in town. 😉  That was definitely my favorite party last year by far.

I only have three days left at my job, and I’m becoming a little sad.  I am really going to miss my friends, who just so happen to be my coworkers, that I get to see everyday. I know that I am going to make equally as good of friends where I am going, for sure, but I just get so attached to people and sentimental when it’s time to say goodbye to a big chapter in life.  The good news is that I’m only going to be a little over a mile away from where I currently am, so I can come visit and have lunch or drinks with my girls any time I’d like.  I am very lucky in that respect.
