Oktoberfest 2009 
17th-Oct-2009 09:45 pm

After work and trooping to the PO box to pick up mail, the SO and I dashed to the RNA Showgrounds for Oktoberfest - beer, pretzels, cheesy music and apple strudel. And not necessarily in that order.

dvoid has been organising tables for us in the private area, which translates to dedicated tables, more space (ie. no shoving with the crowd), a gingerbread cookie necklace and free stein of beer upon arrival, a cold cut platter, champagne, a bar wench to get our beers for us, private toilets (a godsend) and apple strudel.

Our bar wench was unfortunately run off her feet with our tables. Our demand for beer is a bottom-less pit! (^_^)

Except for me. Save the free stein, free champers and a few sips from the SO's stein, I didn't order any additional beer. Instead I opted for this:

A flashy plastic martini glass and refills of daquiris from the mobile outside. Yummy flashy lights. (^0^)/

We boogied to silly cheesy songs and basically monkeyed around. Except one of the private tables had older ladies (think 50s-60s) who were groping each other's tits. (x___x)

And no one groped mine, thanks. My boobs are mine. I don't share.

My creepers for dancing and trooping around in comfort - and walking home without blisters or sore feet. I love them so much and wanna get a pair in red.

As we walked through the Valley on the way home, some hobo asked the SO for change.

Hobo: "Got some change?"
The SO: "No."
Hobo: "Then how do you pay for her?" [pointing to me]
The SO: "Oi, she's my fucking wife, fuck off."

I am more expensive than pocket change, yo.

People photos from the day are on this Facebook album.

Yup yup! I have already prepped to take Andrea's and Cat's things this afternoon. Thanks for organising the GO and the cute buttons! (^0^)/

Yay! I can't wait to see the pictures~

Would you mind leaving feedback for me over at the loligoth dbs? I'd really appreciate it, and I'll leave feedback for you too of course!

Crap, I missed another LJ comment. Stupid email inbox. Where's your loligoth dbs thread? I actually don't have a feedback thread for loli. :p

Your Oktoberfest was way more civilized than mine... I went to an event that was held in a big auditorium and there were probably a couple thousand university students there.

I think the Oktoberfest here (Kitchener-Waterloo) is the biggest outside of Germany? Either way... It goes on for a couple weeks and there's tons of events and debauchery.

Awesome shoes, too!

We had a lot of cops and security keeping the peace, so there weren't too many dramas. Plus the private area we had, meant not every drunken tom dick and harry would be shoving their way to the beer. It would only be our drunks and we handle our own.

It would be a million times of awesome if we could do Oktoberfest in Germany. Imagine all the beer and craziness!

And thanks! Every people should have a pair of creepers.

We were thinking of you as we were drank our beer, knowing you would've enjoyed the chilly beverage as much as we did.

Oh man, I don't know how you lasted in that tent! I was there last week, and the band was so loudX__x;; But you look like you had a great time! :D

We were right in the corner of the tent, so thankfully the speakers weren't turned our way. Music was still loud, but not unbearable. It was nice to go outside to get daiquiris, cuz it meant some fresh cooler air.

Lol~ The food looks awesome! I love the blue and white table cloth and decor. Yay for manly SO! :D

The table cloth was really just paper. :p
