Madison Bucket List: Part Deux

When other people read the phrase "part deux" do you imagine that T.V. show "I love the 90s: PART DEUX" when they talked about Animaniacs and Supermarket Sweep and that creepy dancing baby?

No? Right. Me neither. 

Side note: Anyone remember when Michael Ian Black was on "I Love the 90s?" He was talking about Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and he said "Women doctors? Soon they'll want the vote!" When I was 16 I thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever heard. 

Again, no? Well look here if you want to see it anyway. 

I digress...

Madison Bucket List: Part Deux (Days 6-12)

Day 6: Go to Johnny O's, Monday's, Logan's, City Bar & Hawk's for the first time. 

First of all, are there any bars in Madison that aren't possessive names? Because I can also add to that list: Lucky's, Chaser's, Whisky Jack's, Frida's, Paul's Club, Wando's, Genna's, Jordan's Big 10, Cooper's Tavern, Moe's and Dotty's Dumpling Dowry. I can't think of any more, but I'm sure there are some. 

Anyway, I went to all of these bars in one night. As it turns out, one mixed drink per bar ends up being a lot of alcohol when you go to 5 bars in a row. It's okay, I had people to guide me home. And buy pizza on the way. 

Day 7: Self defense class

So this isn't exactly Madison-specific, but I took the class on Monona Terrace and it was sponsored by a group from Madison. Plus I've always wanted to take a self-defense class. And I was AWESOME at it. Me and my roommate Hannah were basically the rockstars of the class. And by that I mean that we self-defended each other in the corner, laughing as we put each other in headlocks. 

But we really did take it seriously and I definitely recommend it to any college girls. Or boys, for that matter. And I won 3 months free to a kickboxing gym so... you know. Attackers beware!

Day 8: I forgot.

This was my day of rest. I believe it was Sunday, and in the words of Chandler from Friends:

Chandler: No, no, no, no, no. No. Monica, it's Sunday morning. I'm not running on Sunday. 
Monica: Why not?
Chandler: Because it's Sunday. It's God's day. 

I feel that way about running, too. Except replace the word "sunday" with the phrase "any day of the week."

Day 9: Trivia at Chasers

So I've only ever participated in one game of bar trivia before, and I wasn't that involved. Of course, I wasn't really involved in this one either. But I went, dammit!

My dream is to be a 20-something and have a bowling league and a trivia team with other people my age and we will get matching polos and we will ALWAYS WIN EVERY GAME. And our name will be the Pin Pals, named after Homer's bowling league in the Simpsons.

Days (10-12): UW Marching Band Spring Concert

I didn't have time to do new things this weekend because I was in the middle of our annual spring concert... which is a little difficult to describe. So I will just leave a picture. 

So that is what I was up to. It was my first LAST Spring Concert weekend and I was in a bit of a depression spiral/life crisis. 

Thank goodness I have my Madison Bucket List to focus on or I'd have to start focusing on my real life. And nobody wants that. 

And once again, Hannah. Way to end it on a depressing/boring note. 

Here's a GIF to cheer up this ending. It's my reaction whenever someone asks me if I'd like a side salad instead of fries.
