This past weekend was crazy busy, fun filled, and packed with activities that were already scheduled or I put together. Friday night was game night at my place, we kicked back with some crazy Yatzee and just enjoyed a night indoors. Saturday consisted of work, a wedding, and a masquerade murder mystery party.
The wedding. My boss from semo.net (Eric Arnold) got married. He’s been with Ashley for about five years, so the fact that he was with someone isn’t the thing…but when she put the ring on his finger that was really weird to me. He’s married! Not only was he my boss, he’s a good friend of mine, and we spend many hours working together. It was a very pretty wedding, basic and lasted about ten minutes. The dresses were really pretty!! It was a good time and I was able to see a lot of friends there.
The Masquerade Murder Mystery party. My friend/roommate is working for the local Child Advocacy center, and she organized the party for a fund raiser. It was a lot of fun. They had a murder mystery with clues and stuff going on all night, a customer contest, and good food. I went as a fairy type creature (w/ wings and a masquerade mask). I had a lot of fun, I cut out a little before 10:00…when my feet told me it was time to go. :) After leaving the party I headed to a friends house to show off my costume and to kick back and relax with guitar hero. It was a great weekend.
The deer slaying. I was headed home from church on Sunday night with plans to put my pj’s on and fold some laundry. Well, I got about two miles down the road when all of a sudden I had a deer head as a hood ornament. He came flying out of nowhere, low to the ground and going fast…and I ran over him. He was a 4pt buck. I left the scene of the accident, due to not having my cell phone with me, and went to my grandma’s house to call my dad to come save the day. My car was all jacked up…the front end is totally messed up (not as bad as it could have been…but bad enough). We went back to the scene of the demise of the deer, and was looking for him. I almost walked over the top of him. We threw him in the back of my dads truck and took him to the police station (to keep road kill you have to have a slip of paper). Well, since my dad had just killed a deer that morning with his bow, he decided he didn’t want to mess with this one too. Therefore the police pulled out a ‘road kill’ list, a list of names of people who want deer that are killed on the highway, and we picked a family and they came and took the deer away. I have my buck killed for the season…now I can be cool, calm, and collected during regular season and get me a deer.
