    How is everyone's day? It's Friday here and I want to go back to bed. I found like the comfiest sweater dress ish long sleeve thing. It was at Goodwill and was like three bucks? And it's from banana republic and it is unfathomably soft and that + leggings = comfy Erin.

    Today is stupid. An obnoxious busybody at work complained about another employee giving me rides in the morning using the company truck, even though I live two blocks from him and on a straight line from his house to the office, so now I'm back to walking an hour in the morning. Or biking 20 minutes, but then having to haul my stupid bike back uphill at the end of the day which may be faster than walking, but feels far worse. The exercise will be good for me, but the wasted commute time is killer.

    Hamilton is coming to Salt Lake, and tickets went on sale 15 minutes ago... I was in the queue the second it went live (in the "waiting room" page for two hours prior) and my estimated wait time is still over an hour. Unless their transaction volume is ridiculously low, I'm going to bet it will sell out before it gets to me. And I'm going to bet that scalpers are making a killing, because this theater has never done anything even remotely this high demand before, and has fairly minimal security precautions in place.

    Work is buying lunch today, but it's coming from a coworker's sister's catering business that we keep using out of pity, which means it's going to be overcooked chicken and mashed potatoes that you could use as ballistic armor.

    But I've got a job, I've got food, I've got disposable income to spend on something nice instead of tickets when this Hamilton queue locks down, so things could be a lot worse. Just feeling grouchy about it today.

    Holy shit, queue time jumped from over an hour to 11 minutes just now. I mean, I'm 26 minutes in already, but that's a much more optimistic remaining total.

    Fuck. That sucks, Hango Mango. It'd be lovely if people would fuck off and mind their own business. It'll be good exercise at least?

    Also I super hope you can get Hamilton tickets! They opened up for sale in New Orleans and they're $900 each so I am super sad because I'll never see it at that price

    I have a date tonight. I dunno if it's a date date because I lack confidence in myself at this point in time, but still. Somehow the top I wanted to wear got foundation on it so I had to hand wash it and put it up to dry this morning so it better fucking dry in time(it probably won't) and I'm going down to Sephora to get my makeup done before tasty Italian dinner at one of my favorite places and then HMS Pinafore!

    So today is pretty good, I think. I'm kinda nervous but in a good way? One of my exes was texting me this morning about their unsatisfying sex life since they dumped me and that was certainly a thing.

    I HAVE TWO TICKETS!

    Only $90 each. The most expensive they had for sale were $300. I dread to see what the scalper market does, though. I'll be seeing the show on April 28th, which is a Saturday, at 2PM, so that should work out all right. Probably not amazing seats, but I'll just be happy to be inside the damn theater.

    Of course, I'm still hella single, and every other time I've done this "buy two tickets to a thing to force myself to invite someone" thing, I've wound up with just an empty seat for my coat and a feeling of self-loathing undermining the whole experience. But this time will be different! Because fuckin Hamilton Tickets!

    Bachelor parties are kind of bogus, you didn't miss much. They come in three varieties:

    1.) The kind where everyone awkwardly goes through all the motions of the sleazy and/or self-destructive bullshit that is expected because of societal convention. Nobody's comfortable and nobody actually has a good time, except for the one or two Overbearing Party Friends who everybody secretly regrets inviting.

    2.) The kind where everyone just hangs out and actually has a nice time eating snacks and playing games, or whatever the shared recreational foundation of their social circle is, before going to bed at a sensible hour. It would actually be quite pleasant, but the whole thing is undermined by the knowledge that they're not doing the other kind of party, and everyone keeps making sad jokes about when the strippers are going to burst out of the Settlers of Catan box, so they all still wind up feeling like they're missing out even though they'd actually hate the other kind of party.

    3.) The social circle is actually mostly made of Overbearing Party Friends, so the shared recreational foundation is in fact sleazy and/or self-destructive bullshit. Everybody probably enjoys the hell out of themselves, but then there are consequences, because nobody knows when to say enough is enough.

    Bachelorette parties don't seem burdened by such a specific expected formula, so seem to me like they'd have a better chance of actually turning out cool? But maybe that's just a Grass is Greener scenario.

    Bachelorette parties have similar problems with the caveat that in the case of Scenario 2, there's usually no regret about having chosen that option. So, slightly better. But man, if you end up in version 1 or 3 (and it's a straight wedding) you should expect every food to be in the shape of a penis*, every party game to involve penises in some capacity*, some seriously humiliating street antics, and some very awkward stripper action.

    edit: also it depends on the country, German bachelorette parties have a very rigid formula they apparently have to adhere to, aussie ones are less structured.

    * I don't know why this lingers culturally, but it's still apparently HILARIOUS to imply that the bride has never seen a dick before and that the bachelorette party should expose her to as many as possible.

    I've gone to two bachelor parties in my life.
    One was a backyard barbecue where we fed the groom so many shots he puked, and the other was a day at the amusement park/dinner at Hooters(gross)/drinks at the strip club. The second one was actually a ton more fun, we had a chill mixed gender group and there were enough of us that the dancers couldn't sit down with us to constantly bug us for dances and cash.
    We wrapped it up by throwing bouncy balls off my fourteenth floor balcony at 4 AM, and it's a really fond memory. Hooters fucking sucked, though, and I don't think going to the strip club is a safe bet for fun with most groups of people.

    At my friend's bachelorette we had afternoon tea at an upscale hotel, then we went to an escape room, then just to a restaurant before calling it a night.

    The most fun bachelor party I've been to was a mixed gender one with a "moustache and miniskirts" theme (everybody had to wear both), where we pretty much just did a pub crawl and then once we were sufficiently wasted we went to the grooms place of work which had been turned into a dance club for the night. It was very chill and the moustaches made for some fantastic pictures.

    Yes, went to one that was exactly this and it was fantast-

    When I was asked to set up my buddy's bachelor event, I basically fretted for two months and then dropped a super worried "okayifyouwanttodothestripclubthingIwillbecauseIloveyoubutIwillbeinthebacksweatingawkwardlythewholetimeandI'LLSTILLDOITbutifyou'renotinterestedinthatIwouldbeSORELIEVEDYOUHAVENOIDEA" and he was like, no, that sounds gross and bad, and I hugged him and said "how do you feel about go-karts" and he said "fuck yeah" and so we all went go-karting and then had dinner and it was excellent.

    Like one of his uncles said something about "so where are the strippers" and then everyone else rolled their eyes at him in unison and it was great. I had ribs!

    I did an escape room for my birthday, courtesy of my dad. He booked one for me + a few of my siblings + 2 of my siblings' partners (6 of us in total)

    My siblings are more practiced than I am and kind of raced through in a whirlwind spotting all the puzzles before I even had a chance to read the information

    We beat the record by a solid minute, and beat the record for no hints by 13 minutes, which was cool (finished in 35 minutes!), but I got to complete like... 2 of the puzzles by myself! It was my birthday present! Gimme a chance!

    So here is how deep my neurosis got in the past:

    I've never once been drunk in my life, slightly buzzed was the most I've gotten, and a lot of that was in fear that in my drunkenness I would "give away" something about myself that I didn't want known

    @Zonugal can confirm, when I went to the Food and Wine Festival but for me it was just the Food Festival

    It seems so fucking stupid in hindsight but

    Societal pressure, I guess

    I HAVE TWO TICKETS!

    Only $90 each. The most expensive they had for sale were $300. I dread to see what the scalper market does, though. I'll be seeing the show on April 28th, which is a Saturday, at 2PM, so that should work out all right. Probably not amazing seats, but I'll just be happy to be inside the damn theater.

    Of course, I'm still hella single, and every other time I've done this "buy two tickets to a thing to force myself to invite someone" thing, I've wound up with just an empty seat for my coat and a feeling of self-loathing undermining the whole experience. But this time will be different! Because fuckin Hamilton Tickets!

    Holy shit I'll be there.

    I'm gonna make a genuine effort at being social locally... but when that fails, you are on the short list!

    And I am always generally available for awkwardly stilted British socialising, if folks ever need a more...transatlantic vibe to their social grouping.

    I can promise dry British wit, subtle self pity and a veritable downpouring (although that last one is more the British weather and less me).

    No refunds!

    Do you also supply a sofa to curl up on and gaze wistfully out of a window from as your tea makes lazy spirals of steam in the air

    A choice of two in fact - either a 2- or 3-seater black leather, with unparalleled views of Weston and the surrounding landscape. For tea I can provide access to Yorkshire tea bags, but personally don't drink the stuff myself. Tea is blergh.

    So here is how deep my neurosis got in the past:

    I've never once been drunk in my life, slightly buzzed was the most I've gotten, and a lot of that was in fear that in my drunkenness I would "give away" something about myself that I didn't want known

    @Zonugal can confirm, when I went to the Food and Wine Festival but for me it was just the Food Festival

    It seems so fucking stupid in hindsight but

    Societal pressure, I guess

    I CAN ATTEST!

    Also, @UnbreakableVow, you could always opt to be a designated driver? In which case the others would likely happily buy you food & non-alcoholic beverages.

    also I love it when I've talked to people enough where I mentally read their posts in their voice

    I really need to listen to more people's voices. I really like voices? And associating them with people and yeah

    EVERYONE SEND ME YOUR VOICE

    AND A LOVE NOTE

    (That second part was a joke.)

    Well I did my dabbling in recording my voice a while back. Don't think I'll be repeating that in a hurry.

    Hearing your own voice on a recording still sounds super weird!

    As someone who has worked in various call centres at varying capacities, I've been told my voice is everything from "soothing, relaxing, and sensuous" to "pleasant to listen to, with an authoritative but calming demeanor".

    The first one was a drunk guy in Halifax, NS who hit on all the agents though, regardless of gender, and he was a creep who would talk about wanting to invite us back to his hot tub that he mentioned in every conversation, even though what we were discussing had no reason to talk about his personal life at all. We almost blacklisted his number after the 3rd time he made an agent uncomfortable.
