So I'm not gonna write this epic entry like I intended to, because I don't have that much to report.
Friday was definitely fun but not what I expected. The day started pretty much when I got my ass in gear and went to take a shower. Afterwards, I went to grab some breakfast and read in the library until my interview at the humane society. That went well--every thursday, starting next week, I get to go to the humane society and play with cats for 2 and a half hours for community service. Pretty sweet. Afterwards, I met up with my friend Alex, who goes to Georgetown and I never get to see.
Alex and I went to go see Youth In Revolt, which was a super cute movie. Afterwards, we decided to go get something to eat. Now, we went to Tisane's, which is a little indie restaurant in West Hartford, about twenty minutes away from my house. The parking lot was full, so we parked across the street. So Alex and I are inside for maybe 45 minutes, and then we go back outside to head home so I can get ready to go out to the club.
Look at that. MY CAR IS GONE. The exact spot in which I parked my car now has a white acura, which is NOT what I drive. So we go inside the store that owns the parking lot, which happens to be FedEx/Kinko's. Apparently they had my car towed because I wasn't supposed to park in that parking lot. Now, I had never been towed before so I was like, "WTF?" I wasn't really pissed off or freaking out or anything, I was just really annoyed. So I got the number for the towing company, and they said I could pick up my car the next morning. So Alex called her dad and he drove us home, which was super nice of him.
Then I got home and explained to my mom what happened. She sorta laughed at me and made fun of me making stupid mistakes. I was sorta put off, but I had plans to go to this club for like two months so I got ready and persuaded my mom to let me use her car because I suddenly didn't have one.
I'm sorta pissed that I didn't take pictures because I looked HOT. Short black lace dress with long sleeves with a pale pink corset over it, sheer tights, and slouchy black boots. I wanted to wear my military-esque boots, but they were in my car which was towed haha. It worked out well though, because I didn't have any pockets obviously, so i just slid everything into my boots and they stayed there the whole night haha.
So I got to the club and it was actually pretty mellow. I got there like an hour and a half after doors opened, but there still wasn't that many people there. They were just playing industrial music and there were a few people on the dance floor, even though pretty much everyone there was in the bar area. There were a few people I recognized, so I made small talk. I sorta stood off to the side against the wall for the first part of the night, but then this random girl pulled me onto the dance floor and I was pretty much dancing for the rest of the night. I met a lot of cool new people and danced with a nice man named Will who was wearing a kilt. He was very pleasant and a good dancer for a white guy. ;)
So it wasn't was I expected, but it definitely led me in the right direction. I got the name of a few clubs in the CT/MA area that caters to the darker side of things... So I'm keeping my eyes open and going to go to these things and hopefully I'll get to where I want to be. I had fun, though I'm pissed I don't have pictures haha. I did take some pictures with this woman who sells lingerie though, so maybe I can find them.
The next event is a masquerade ball on Jan 12th (tuesday?!) but it's in northampton and i'm not sure if I wanna drive all the way there. I might though, because I'm not doing anything on Wednesday. And I just realized that it's seriously down the street from Smith (phoe and caitlin!) at a gay club, nonetheless. I'll check it out, probably. If I don't make it, there's also a masquerade ball on Feb 5th at the same venue as Friday night...
Whatever. I'm excited to go again, because I did have a good time. The more people I meet, the closer I am to finding the scene that I'm looking for.
( I found pictures!Collapse )
