This weekend was pretty fun. Friday night we took it easy because we knew that Saturday would be long and exhausting. Saturday was the day of the Fun Bus, which we were volunteering on this year. The Fun Bus is a charity event with the Utah Cyber Sluts and the proceeds went to the Utah Pride Center Mental Health campaign. It’s a fun charity because you take the bus out to Wendover (if you’re not from Utah-it’s the border town between Utah and Nevada where all of the sudden gambling becomes legal lol) and you play bingo, win prizes, and get drunk on the way up. You then spend the day in Wendover and catch the fun bus back home.
In previous years we’ve always just gone and donated to charity, but this year the roommate and I were both on separate buses helping out. The way to Wendover I was a runner. Taking money for things like beer, soda, and other donations. Now, as a person who gets car sick on the swings at the park, you’d think I would have remembered Dramamine, but I didn’t-and was sick most of the way. I still had a ton of fun though, and so did my friends!
Once we got to Wendover I proceeded to get much too drunk (too much vodka cranberry-when will I remember that hard liquor is no longer my friend?) but still had a pretty good time. On the way back I called Bingo, and was pretty darn funny-if I do say so myself. A lot of the people on the bus loved it and said I should call bingo more often.
We wont even get into the crappy drama that followed… Where there are drag queens there will always be drama…
Sunday was pretty relaxed as I nursed a bad hangover, but I did get the urge to cook something and made Elk steaks with stuffed squash on the side. Recipe coming soon! It was delicious, but sadly later that evening I started coming down with a bad stomach bug that kept me in bed most of Monday too. Boo.
I also got my Fall Swap package from the lovely Niki from My Life Remixing! Niki has swapped with us over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps before so it was fun to get to know her through the Falling Into Fall Swap hosted by Tales of a Twenty Something. Below is what she sent me, and if you want to see what I sent her, see it HERE.
How was your weekend?
