What to do with Friday nights.

29 November 2013

Tonight I find myself in a situation that I'm often in most Friday nights. My room mate has gone back home for the weekend, I'm single, and I can count the amount of people I know in Toronto on one hand. Thus rendering me all alone, on my own. Once again.

I've learned a thing or two about how to occupy my time whilst home alone, and since I've become somewhat of an expert at the Friday-night-solo-hang, I figured I'd share with you guys some things that you can do if you ever find yourself in a similar situation.

Don't Wear Pants

I sometimes follow this rule even when my roommate is home, but usually I wear a long enough shirt to avoid any kind of indecencies. But tonight, nah, tonight you can go pants-free in all it's glory. You deserve it, you've had a long, pants-wearing-filled day. Treat yourself.

Light The Candle Your Roommate Hates

When you live with someone else sometimes you have to make compromises, like, say if a particular scent gives your roommate a headache, you have to refrain from burning said candle. But not tonight! Burn that mother effing candle in every single room. Because you can.

Pee With The Door Open

Don't pretend like you don't do it! This is one of my favourite parts about being alone, I don't have to worry about privacy. I can pee with the door wide open all. day. long.

Watch Whatever You Want On TV

You don't have to share the TV with anyone, so watch the last few episodes of Breaking Bad's fourth season. And while you're at it, go ahead and watch the fifth season too.


A la Tom Cruise in Risky Business, shake your groove thang, twerk up a sweat, go crayzay. Extra fun if you include your pet as a dance partner, or if you motion towards your pet as if telling them, "this one's for you"

And finally,


Blast that stereo, sing all the wrong words, heck, don't even sing, just groan random notes. No one is here to judge you. Do whatever you want! You can even play that band you're embarrassed to admit you love, because you don't have to explain why "they have such a catchy sound, you know?"

 Peace Out, Kate


  1. Hell yes on #1, 5, and 6! My husband and I were reminiscing how, before my oldest son was born, we used to walk around the house naked all the time. Those were the good old days.

    By the way, I nominated you for the Sunshine Award. Check out details on my blog: deliciously active

  2. Lol Napoleon Dynamite is always a great reference!! My "roommate" is my bf (not really, he'd kill me if I referred to him as that lol) but I don't wear pants anyways and I haven't received any complaints. Ha! Hope you have a great weekend and find someone to bother! -Iva

  3. Ok, so I just realised that I actually still shut the door when I go pee and no one else is freaking home. You have now liberated me from this silliness. Yes!!!

  4. THIS . ALL . IS . TRUE! I can't explain the happiness of open-door-pee!

  5. I love all these! Also, one day, we shall have a blate! Then you'll have something to do with another Torontonian. :)

  6. I used to absolutely LOVE when my roommate was out. I would cook a really elaborate dinner and drink wine and watch WHATEVER I WANTED (so freeing).

  7. I so always leave the door open, plus my cat would kill me if I tried to close it, those pitiful sounds she makes when I do close the door are just not worth the torture.
