So I try a little Freddie/ I've gone identity mad!

For almost a year now, I've been planning to dress up as the girl from the Cake song Short Skirt/Long Jacket for Halloween, but when Halloween finally came around, everyone I know was out of town, so there were no Halloween parties to go to. I'm a bit disappointed, but at least I knew that far enough in advance that the only aspect of the costume I'd bought was nail polish for my "fingernails that shine like justice." Next year for Halloween, I want to be either Freddie Mercury or Luna Lovegood. My sister has suggested that I combine the...

Hooray for snack-sized candies!

I bought Halloween candy just in case I had trick-or-treaters, but was pretty sure I wouldn't, since I don't have a porch light and there was nothing to indicate that ascending three flights of stairs would be in any way fruitful. Or candyful. As a result, I have candy galore leftover. I've brought some to work but it isn't disappearing nearly fast enough - especially since several of my coworkers have mentioned that they didn't have any trick-or-treaters either. I suspect there are a lot of adults with candy on their hands this November 1. *licks fingers* Well, what with...

'You'll keep walking, but you'll never forget what you saw.'

Many thanks to Mr B****** for sending me the link to Something Awful's analysis of horrifying Halloween costumes. Except for the part where I couldn't breathe because I was laughing so hard, it was very enjoyable. Be sure to check out the Wookiee section and note the similarities to my own observations about Chewbacca!...

'Death is coming!'

me: Here comes another trick-or-treater... it's the Devil! The Devil's Mom: He's the devil who got arrested! (I look down and realize that the kid is wearing an orange jumpsuit in addition to his devil mask) srahmom: How did you get arrested? The Devil: I got caught. Hee hee hee. I don't know why I find this so funny. Satan is no match for earthly law enforcement! Take that, Beelzebub! Crime won't pay after all! Among our visitors: a butterfly; Death; The Devil; a fairy and a pirate-bat; the Incredible Hulk and a Care Bear; something with a turtle shell...

Adam West comes trick-or-treating

I haven't been in this house on Halloween in at least five years and have no experience with handing out Halloween candy or knowledge of the normal trick-or-treating flow. This year, however, my parents went out of town and the job was left to me. I tried to be conservative, judging that since my family had bought ten bags of candy, we were expecting a lot of trick-or-treaters. "Pick the one you want," I would say, holding out the bowl to the outreached hands who were ready to grab handfuls. To really cute little kids or people with good costumes,...

It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween

In movies, kids go trick-or-treating door-to-door and you open the door and see them standing there in their costumes with eager looks on their faces, bags outstretched. What about a realistic Michigan Halloween? Eager looks, check. Bags, check. Costumes? Hmmm. And what are you? A princess in a parka? Well, isn't that cute? And you are a crayon in a coat? Adorable. Awwwww, it's Anakin Skywalker in an anorak. An Orc in an overcoat. Jack Sparrow in a ski jacket. This is October in Michigan, people. Don't even get me started on the grown-up costumes. Sexy French maid... in sexy...

Graduation countdown: 12 days

12 days. At Halloween of my freshman year, I had nothing to wear. So I ran out to Felpausch at the last minute and got some white bunny ears. I dressed all in white (or light khakis) and was a bunny. Well, what do you do with bunny ears for the rest of the year? I became known on my hall for wearing my bunny ears everywhere. On the hall, around campus, to the coffee house... Ah, attention. I became identified as "The Bunny". Rabbits became my favorite animal, just because I identify with them. Hence three stuffed bunnies, sitting...
