*puts on super stealthy ninja gear again*

My plan was a success! I made it to Bloomington-Normal and back without car troubles or getting lost!! And I had a blast with Steph and Hayley and John at IWU.

The drive there took an hour and 45 min due to constructiong traffic, but the drive home was about 15 min faster. It also helps that I averaged 75-85 the whole way home. I tried to hit 100 at one point, but I started to get scared O_o;

Steph and I went out to eat, and then for ice cream, and then she showed me around her campus and we went to Hayley's with a 20 piece honey BBQ boneless buffalo wings. Those things are SO GOOD! They're like honey bbq chicken nuggets. They even taste good semi-cold.

We all then headed out to Kroger to get bananas and butter ...

Hayley: "We need to go get bananas and butter ... "
Me: "Mmmm, bananas and butter ... "
Hayley & Steph: ...
Me: "Oh my dirty mind ... "

Needless to say, I had a dirty mind almost the whole time ^_^;

So, we get to Johns, and we wait for him, thinking that he's in class. Steph heads into his bedroom and he's asleep, so she pounces him and wakes him up. Hayley and John go to get rum and banana liqour so Hayley can make us some banana's foster. oooh man was that GOOD! A little too much alcohol for my taste, but it was good ^_^

We then decided that we should go out and rent some porn. It was unanimous, so we headed to Family Video. Picked up two titles, "Jewel Raider" and "Roman Orgy". Jewel Raider was great and funny. It had lots of interestingly good kung fu action, and lots of random things. And I didn't think porno's had this, but at the end there were outtakes, quite amusing!

We came to the conclusion that "Roman Orgy"'s budget was wasted on nothing but costumes. All it was were a bunch of people ... having an orgy ... wow ... got rather stupid after a while, so we decided to play a drinking game.

Steph and I chickened out and went back to her dorm to sleep. I slept on the couch in her "living room" portion of her dorm, just like a bum. It was comfortable though, even though I kept waking up ever hour or so. Her dorm was surprisingly quiet ...

Got up the next morning, went with her to the costume shop, helped out on a few things, sewing some buttonholes tighter, worked to hem a pair of pants, and fixed up a hole in a wool jacket. They were happy to have me helping! Because Steph's boss got to go home early because of me :D Steph was working on a really pretty pink corset.

Anywhoo, we went to eat at their spiffy student center, in a little sit-down restaurant called Tommy's. Then we headed out to Handcock, just to see if I could get anything for cheaper there than back at home. Didn't find anything, dropped Steph off, and then headed out on my way home.

I had a real blast! I can't wait to do it again!

In costuming news: still need to get stuff, so nothing's changed ... oh, except my shoes are dry, and I'll probably lace them up and see how they work tonight ^_^

*** CALLING ALL HP DORKS ***

Ok, now I'm sure those of you that like HP remember the trailer for CoS. Well, that one part where Harry is staring out across the lake, and Hedwig lands on a rock next to him and he reached out and strokes her back gently ...
