A Bad Taste Sweater Party
8 December 2008
Sap, Ben, Mandy and I went to a house party on Saturday. The theme was ‘terrible Christmas sweaters’ — something that sounded a lot of fun! Our first challenge would be to find four sweaters terrible enough…so we hit the shops.
We went to a few outlet-style stores and found some truly horrendous sweaters — including a pink one with kittens on — but nothing that was truly ‘Christmassy’ enough. We then hit a jackpot — an entire store devoted to the art of terrible Christmas-themed sweaters!
Although I wasn’t allowed to spend $60 on one with flashing LEDs (I know, it would have been awesome, right?) we did manage to find some beauties. Bizarrely enough they all had shoulder pads — Ben had the look, that’s for sure!
We met a lot of great people and had a fantastic time. We also had our first experience of a party with a keg — something of a novelty for us Brits who are used to drinking warm cans of Carling at house parties!
The time flew by really quickly and before we knew it we were heading back to Ben and Mandy’s (having missed our last train back downtown).
