i had an unexpectedly busy weekend...but it was the good kind of busy. you know, the kind where you get to sunday night and think "man, how did i do all of that stuff in just 3 days?!" know what i mean?

anyway, friday night we went over to a "fear farm" in the area and basically paid a dinner's worth to be scared and run around in the rain. i can tell you that i haven't laughed as hard as i did that night in a long time. one particular moment was a certain dialogue with a certain clown:

clown: who's the girl in the pink?
me: CARRIE. her name is CARRIE. (i guess i have a tendency for throwing my friend's under the bus when it comes to scary things)
clown: hiiiii carrrrrrie (in a really creepy voice) 
[clown proceeds to follow carrie for a good while and whisper weird things in her ear.]

also, my sister is the funniest person to watch on a haunted hay ride. let's just say, she screams and jumps a lot.  
on saturday, some of us did the Color Me Rad 5k, which was SO much fun. if you have the opportunity to do it, you definitely should. it's more of a fun run than a competition (which i'm all about - not a competitive bone in my body) and, hey, you get to throw colored dust at all your friends. what more could you ask for?
and on sunday, we carved pumpkins. it took me about 2 seconds flat to decide to carve a cat (i mean, come on.). kate and my roommate sam decided to go with a little duke theme, which i didn't have a problem with, obviously. 
so, it was a good weekend. and i went to bed at 9:30 one night. NINE THIRTY. and it was kind of the best.
