Candy is a band-aid, no matter what they say
Hey Hey Hey! Are you all ready for a run-down of my Halloween night out? If you're not then that's just too bad for you cuz i'm gonna blog about it anyways so ha!!!
Well, the day was pretty boring. My sister's boyfriend came over. Ugh. I got my costume ready, went shopping, went to the elementary school to help out but didn't stay long cuz the person i was there for didn't show up. Raar.
Anyways, i went back home and stuck my costume on. I was going to Dillon's murder mystery party and i was going to be Jacqueline Hyde, Supernatural Investigator! I wore green cargo pants with a pair of skinny, knee high, brown pleather boots pulled over them, a dark red shirt with a brown button down shirt which instead of buttoning i tied the ends together. (who says Supernatural investigators can't be stylish? I also had an Indiana jones style hat! Boo-ya! I wore a few crosses, red lipstick (very tacky hehe), eyeliner, and i brought a bag that said Classified on the front, in which i put in a photo of the Loch Ness monster that i had printed out to add some depth to my character. I also brought a mirror (ever heard that vampires don't have reflections? Of course a Supernatural Investigator would want to check hehe) and a notepad.
Once i was ready i waited impatienntly for four o'clock to come around. That's when the fun would begin.
Woo! so i arrive at Dillon's house and BAM!!!! He had decorated the dining room in which the mystery would take place so elaborately it looked straight out of the Adam's Family. I found my name tag (the brilliant Jacqueline Hyde) and set my props down. All at once everyone started showing up. Kylie was Ivanna Bitesneck, a Romanian Princess and T.V Presenter, Chloe was Dinah Gruesomeway, a horror writer, Scat was Shabby, Robert was Constable Painting, Lane was Vlad Tire, a motorist, and so on. Someone didn't show up so i got to do two parts, Jacqueline and Tilly Screams, a Dentist. It was all strangely eerie, straight out of a game of Clue. Everyone had dressed for the part. Man it felt like i was in a soap opera.
During dinner, Kylie and I started getting into character, talking about what it was like to be a Romanian Princess and me talking about where i had been as an investigator. it was so hard to keep a straight face but once i got into it it was fun to make up my character's history.
Finally the game started. Back and force the dialogue went, everyone interrogating one another, dropping hints as to why they may or may not be the murderer, back and force, accusing and denying. It was well-planned and the dialogue was actually pretty good! There were two people who wouldn't stop playing around, and were ruining it for everyone. I got fed up so while i was pretending to take notes, i turned to Kylie and asked "How do you spell 'idiot?'"She laughed. She knew exactly who i was talking about.
Finally the final round came. Now was when we had to say who we thought the murderer was. My first guess was Dinah Guressomeway, but when Lane (who was playing Vlad Tire) kept being an idiot, i stood up in a flourish, all dramatic and said "It was you, Vlad! Throughout this entire investigation you have been obnoxious, clearly trying to distract us! Obviously you have something to hide!" I meant it as a joke but guess what?
I WAS RIGHT!
Whoever thought teasing someone would turn out to be a good thing?
Don't to drugs.
ANYWAYS, in the middle of all this, Spencer, being the genius he is, stuck a sponge in the microwave. it caught fire the whole house smelt of burning sponge. O joy.
Also, before the game started, Dillon, Kylie, and Chloe had gone upstairs to talk about something. It bothered me. I mean, couldn't the drama be put aside for just one night, instead of leaving everyone else out in the cold. Sigh. I just hope they got everything worked out, whatever that was.
But i wasnt the only bothered by that little conference. Scat, Robert, Lane, and I got our revenge by hiding the snacks. Hehehehe.
After the game ended, we went trick or treating for a spell. I don't eat a lot of candy so i gave my plunder to Kylie and Chloe.
so that's it! OH, and my fantabulous friend Aly came over to my house when she went trick-or-treating and my dad gave her two bags of candy. She's special!
It was fun to see Scat again and also Dillon. I also met a bunch of new people and they were all very nice, especially Robert and Kylie. Gotta love 'em!
Ok, now that's it! wow that was long. very long. Sooooooooo loooooong. wow. long. Like one of those foot long hot dogs.
now those are long.
O i forgot to mention! When i made it home I got a call from a friend i haven't seen in ages! I was so excited to finally talk to her. We talked forever until i had to go help put Christmas lights up. IN THE RAIN! NEVER AGAIN SHALL I DO THAT! IT WAS TERRIFYING!
