The Halloween Trivia King Meets Drunk Long Island Girls

Last night I went to my friend G.'s Halloween bash out in Long Island. As usual, she outdid herself decorating the house with spooky wares and cooking enough food to feed an army. And I must have been an army of one, because I stuffed my face all night long. Pigs in blankets, meatballs, baked brie, spinach dip, quesadillas, pizza, ziti, cookies, brownies... Oy! But it was all so much fun. The best part was seeing G. again -- I haven't had a chance to hang out with her in months. She looked cute-slash-hot in her Batgirl costume and fishnets!

Later in the evening, there was a trivia contest involving identifying quotes from famous horror movies, and guess what? First place. That's right, y'all. Only five wrong out of fifty! Bring it! My prizes included a DVD of True Lies and an awesome set of Nightmare on Elm Street shot glasses.

There as a costume contest too, but despite racking up a few votes in the Most Original and Most Humorous categories, I didn't win anything. (Pictures will be posted after Halloween, so you can see what I went as this year. I have two more parties to go to, and I don't want to ruin the surprise!)

Also, I've discovered the best place to meet drunk girls is the Long Island Rail Road on a Saturday night. The trains are practically crawling with them! (My friend M.'s Cruella DeVil costume elicited a whole lot of singing from the drunken chorus that surrounded us.) Luckily -- or perhaps unluckily, depending on how you look at it -- my recent vow never to get involved with anyone under thirty again relegated the tipsy twentysomethings to nothing more than amusing scenery.
