On The Hairpin Halloween Advent Calendar: Halloween Confessions

I threw my back out a couple days before our Halloween festivities senior year of college, and thus had some pretty sweet painkillers and muscle relaxers at my disposal. "Oh, I can drink while taking these, no big deal. Just not a ton."

Cut to me dressed as Slutty Tinkerbell, dangling by my fishnets from the top of a chain-link fence. Turns out peeing in the backyard of a random house and then using an empty pony keg (thoughtfully provided by my friends from across the fence) as a stepstool is not the greatest of ideas when one is a bit....out of it, shall we say.

I eventually fell down and then later burned a cigarette hole in my fairy wings, because I am nothing but class.

On It's a Girl, My Lord, in a Flatbed Ford

@reebs14 I...meant to put the exclamation point on the outside. I think. I can never remember. Stupid punctuation.

@camanda "Nights in White Satin!" Epic shit, right there.

@Brunhilde I only recently realized that it's "Evil Woman." Not "Medieval." Ahem. My apologies to anyone who ever had to listen to me caterwauling that at stoplights.

@leon s "Dancing in the Moonlight" for the win. I'm fairly sure that it's on every single one of my roadtrip playlists.

And yesterday I was rocking out (okay, swaying gently) to "Dreamweaver."

@WhiskeySour Yay for finishing the yucky moving part! Aaaand now Ms. Lennox is stuck in my head. Best memory of that song ever: watching a group of fratty bros act out an interpretive dance (like picking up their feet as if walking on glass) on their porch roof in the middle of the afternoon.

Just a fun tidbit that I'm pretty sure y'all will appreciate: I'm in the midst of rehearsals for a play at my community theatre, and as anyone who's had any experience with the "Waiting for Guffman" crowd knows, there is great potential for both on and off-stage awkwardness with the other actors.

However, I think that the scene in which my character is spanked (like, full-on bent over his lap) by the character who happens to be played by my former elementary school music teacher takes "awkward" to the extreme.

On They Forgot About Breakup Songs

@Sea Ermine Me too! The Space Jam soundtrack (along with a Paula Abdul tape) was my literal jam in 5th grade.

On "Try reading 25 pages a day, out loud, in your best bad Irish accent."

@reebs14 Definitely agree on needing the community. That was part of the problem, I think - very few people in the class expressed anything other than disdain for her writing, so it was difficult to motivate myself to do anything but just get through the damn words. Your class sounds amazing, though.
