An eventful night

So, I normally don't relay personal stories on the ole blog, but last night was just kind of odd, so I've decided to post on it. So, the oncampus bar, the Pub, at my school (the only bar within walking distance from my apartment) was closing its doors last night, possibly forever. So, my friends and I decided to go have a few beers to celebrate all the good times we had at the Pub. So, when I arrive with my friend Phil, there is large line full of people who never go to the Pub. We were upset, and Phil tried to negotiate with the doorman, but to no avail. So, on our way back home, we run into another friend Brian, who informs us he knows a secret way to get into the Pub.
Brian then informs us it involves climbing the side of a two story building and sneaking across several rooftops. I personally don't want to do this. So, Phil and Brian climb up the side of the building and after some encouragement, I finally join them. So, we begin to run across the rooftops. At one point we have to crawl across a small, narrow section that has a 20 ft. drop if we slip. We then race across the one section of roof that has a direct line of sight to the patio area of the Pub and make it to the roof of the Pub. Brian then informs us that we have to drop into a back area of the patio where there are never any people. I'm not happy about this, but I'm ready to go along. Of course, when Brian pokes his head over, there is a security guard waiting in his secret spot to drop in. So, Brian and Phil are trying to figure out different ways to get in the backdoor of the Pub, and the only way to do that without alerting a security guard involves using a beam to get down a 20ft drop. However, before we can do this, Phil spots a security guard on the roof. We hide, but he walks directly towards our position. Finally, right before he find me, I get up with arms up in the air and begin the following conversation.

Me - "I surrender. So are you going to arrest me or give me a ticket?"
Guard-"How about I take you off the roof and you leave?"
Me - "That sounds fair. Thanks"
Guard - "No problem. So, what the hell are you doing up here? Are you just hanging out, or are you trying to sneak into the party?"
Me - "Trying to sneak into the party"
Guard - "Did that girl already get out of here?" (refering to Brian, a rather large guy with long hair)
Me - "Yeah, she already escaped"
Guard - "How did you get up on the roof?"
Me - "Climbed up the far building and made our way across the various rooftops"
Guard - "Well, don't worry about getting into the party, they're no longer serving beer"

After that, Phil came out of his hiding spot and we were escorted out of the building. So, then we met up the AC Patriot and we back to my apartment for some drinking and watched "Step into Liquid" which is a pretty cool movie after surfing.
So, right as everyone is leaving my roommate arrives. Just as I'm closing my door to my bedroom to go to sleep, I here my roommate call for me. I ask him what's up and then he tells me that he and his girlfriend just got married. Whoa! Didn't see that coming. So, we have a beer to celebrate his marriage and then I finally crash.
