Matt's birthday is halloween weekend. This year we all went to the cottage and had a small but huge costume party! Those pictures, WONT POST.

The weekend after that, Matt and I hit the city for what we called "our blue night out" why you ask? For matt's birthday he received the following gifts, all of which were orchestrated by myself, but bought by other people. SNAP!
1 set of 3rd row seat tickets for BLUE MAN GROUP
1 gift certificate for THE PICKLE BARREL
1 snazzy new outfit
a couple weeks prior to recieving his presents, i talked matt into getting a hotel in toronto to celebrate our anniversary late. (we had planned to stay at a hotel for our anniversary but our funds ran dry and we had to cancel)
Saturday afternoon matt picked me up from work, bags in tow, and we headed down to finch station. We got a spot in the very front by the subway. NICE!
We got off the subway 20 minutes later and walked 2 blocks before we found the panasonic theatre. WEE! 2 blocks down from that we found our hotel! SWEET! We went inside and i asked matt if he thought i should ask about getting a balcony, as they had prior told me it was not available. He said he didnt think so. I asked anyway. The man handed my a key for a 15th floor corner balcony overlooking yonge street. AWESOME!
the room was adorable, the view was pretty sweet ass. And FINALLY! we had some alone time! We hung out in the hotel for a while, smoking out on the balcony.
I had a bath and ate some chocolate while i was relaxing in it. YEAH MAN! i was relaxxed. We took off down the road, gift certificates in tow, to the PICKLE BARREL AT THE ATRIUM. It ended up being a 10 minute walk! YAY! We only had a 10 minute wait but the people who flooded in behind us got shafted with a 35 minute wait! LUCK BE A LADY TONIGHT! Matt had the Orange Monsoon chicken, which was an orange home made chicken ball on rice with fried noodles and sesame seeds. I dont know what the hell I WAS THINKING but i had the chicken fingers with mashed sweet potatoes. I always get the corned beef on rye. Why did i not go with what i know? CRY!
We headed back to the hotel where we had a couple more smokes and relaxed. After about a half hour we headed back out in the other direction to the panasonic theatre.
When we got there we sat in our seat, third row, poncho seating. We got our ponchos on and wrapped the recycled paper string around our heads. Yes, the audience does that. i wasnt alone! the show started up and matt was SO EXCITED he was squeezing my hand! little did matt know, i had another suprise up my sleeves!
The blue man show starts with a red L.E.D message board that makes a couple announcements, which i wont repeat here! too long! but they use people who are really in the audiences name.
MATT HUNT IS ALSO HERE TODAY. MATT IS AN AVERAGE JOE OF NO PARTICULAR DISTINCTION. ALL THE MORE REASON TO GIVE HIM EXTRA ATTENTION RIGHT NOW. LETS ALL TELL MATT WE LOVE HIM!
The audience all at once yells out "WE LOVE YOU MATT". then it read...
"STAND UP MATT SO WE CAN SEE WHERE TO DIRECT OUR LOVE!"
matt jumped up out of his seat and pumped his fists in the air, yelling out in excitement. Then the message board red
"OK MATT SIT DOWN, THAT'S ENOUGH". matt was laughing sooo bad. Then the lights faded and the big water tubed did their thing, and the show went on. I wont tell you what happens in the show but at one point a blue man walked right THROUGH the audience, climbing over the people. Using MATTS HEAD for support! it was delicious! Matt squeezed my hand and laughed and hooted and clapped like mad, shaking his legs like he was 10 again! it was AWESOME!
After the show, covered in recycled paper, we trudged out to the front where we took a picture of the blue man talked to the blue musicians about the show and more.
We skipped excitedly back to the hotel, pumped to the nines and starving again. HOW? i dunno! we got pizza and burgers and headed up to our room where we smoked, talked, pigged out and watched BEERFEST. Then we smoked again, and...went to bed?
The next day we hung out a little more on our precious balcony before heading home.
SEE BLUE MAN GROUP!
