  • ML Halloween

    November 1st, 2004

    The Mary Lyon Halloween party was on Saturday. Costumes are always fun. Allison and Katie went as Love and Lust respectively. Lucas was supposed to be a pimp, but I don't think he was flashy enough. I prefer gangster. Pimp, however, goes a bit better with Love and Lust, though. And I was a member of Sargent Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. Jolly good fun.

    Actually, the party itself wasn't really much fun at all, so Katie, Allison, Lucas and I spent four or so hours talking to Michael (and reading Hope for the Flowers). I got tired and left at around 1:30 (the first one). By the time the others wanted to leave (2:30) the police had started arresting people for underage drinking if they were walking back and the Party Associates were requiring that everyone take the shuttle back. Lucas, Katie, and Allison were most definitely not drunk (all three religious, Allison a Mormon) but they ended up having to wait another hour for room on a shuttle. But I got to sleep and that's all that counts.
