1 Girl, 1 Gay Boy, 1 Bad Dinner and a Bad Case of Peeing in Our Panties

Ok, so I know my friend Angie is gonna kill me for posting this but it was so funny I had to blog about it today!

Yesterday, my friend Angie and i went to to this place she absolutely loves called Tank Noodle. Before I continue, I must say that I've always thought of myself as the type of person who is willing to try new things but I've noticed that the older I get the the harder it is for me to try food I don't recognize. So, there we are at Angie's preferred Tank Noodle. I ordered a Pho(pronounced "fuh" as in "What the 'fu__' r you looking@?").
Looks pretty at first, doesn't it?? Looks can be deceiving!!!!
I thought it'd be pleasant. I thought I'd enjoy it. I was surprised to find things in my bowl I had never seen before in my life. Needless to say, I wasn't happy with my meal. I even offered Angie a bite of something I wouldn't dare eat. I tricked her into eating it by telling her she simply had to try it. She did. She no like.
This is the tumor I tricked Angie into eating
This is Angie not liking the tumor

After an hour of relaxing from a horrible meal, we headed off to Sofo with our friend Mark for what was supposed to be 1 drink. One drink turned into four and when we left, we were DRRRRRRRRUNK! Angie and I couldn't stop laughing for some reason and she kept telling me she was going to pee in her panties. A few minutes later I saw what appeared to be water stains on Angie's pants. Not cute. I told Angie I thought she really had pissed in her panties. After we got home(angie lives across the hall), she text'd me to tell me she was drunk, which I already knew, and wanted ice cream, which I already knew. So, there you have a typical Friday night.

We find our way to Sofo
This is the junk I pulled out of my Pho. I'd tell u what it is, if I knew!!!!! What the hell is this?????
This is Angie telling me she thinks she's gonna piss in her pants!!
I can only imagine the hot mess that followed!!
This what I imagine Angie doing if it hadn't been so late...

An Amazing Summer Ends With Summer

Earlier this year I made a mental list of all the things I wanted to do this summer. On my list were things such as:
1. Enjoy Summer!
2. Attend Andersonville MidSummer Fest
3. Attend Market Days
4. Go on a boat cruise
5. Go to Hollywood Beach
6. Go to Beach@night
7. Crash a party
8. See Donna Summer@Ravinia

...among other things I failed to do. Nonetheless, I managed to mostly all of what I hoped to do this summer. This was, to date, the summer of my life. I had soooooo much fun. This summer gave me an opportunity to make some new friends, experience new things and in the process have fun.

The train ride to Ravinia couldn't be any gayer. The Metra was filled with gay men and women left and right, top to bottom. I could hear a few voices singing in sync Donna Summer melodies.

Once we arrived to Ravinia, my friends and I(a bunch of Hot Thursday Messes) were overwhelmed by a sea of people who had already found a good spot to enjoy the concert. After about 10 minutes of looking, we finally found a spot we were able to squeeze into. My fondest memory will be of four single gay men laying on the ground and talking about the men that could've been "the one." As my friend put it, "it was like a slumber party."

To my Hot Thursday Messes, thank you so much for the moments and memories.
