And you're going as what?
Tonight: Major candying of neighborhood ghouls, goblins and monsters!
No party. Last time I went to a Halloween party was '96 or '97. The party theme was "Song Titles."
I wore overalls, a shirt and tie, a straw hat, and shined-up work boots, and carried a flyer for a cattle auction in Muskogee.
I was "Okie from Muskogee," by Haggard, of course.
Dr. ER took an arm off of a doll and put it in a front jeans pocket, sticking out where you could see it.
Surely, y'all can guess her song title and artist!
Yourselves? Plans, and costume-party stories, please.
Last year I just went to Lowe's and got a bunch of plastic tubes and tied them around myself and went as The Internet.
A couple years ago we went as Heat Miser and Cold Miser. Extra points if you get the reference. If not:
But this year I was given strict instructions to come up with costumes that do not require 5 hours of semi-inebriated after-party scrubbing off of make-up. Thus the Lego costumes, which only required about 8 hours of work.
There have been a few others, but they mostly involved off-color puns, so I'll spare you.
We have no parties this evening, so I'm in normal clothes, but if anyone asks, I'm the Final Cylon.
(BTW, was Oklahoma really supposed to be called Sequoia? Pardon my ignorance but have there every been Sequoia trees in Oklahoma?)
Someone better be handing out chocolate.
Just wore a white lab coat over my usual clothes, with stethoscope sticking out of the pocket, and called myself a nurse. Don't do fancy stuff for work, because heavy makeup or accessories get annoying half way through the day
I should wear way oversized clothes and use a cane or something and be a "weak man" -- 'cause I just went to the store to get contact lens solution and came back with four huge steaks.
BONE-IN RIBEYES $6.49 per pound! I *had* to. They are nestled in my deep freeze. It's home-roasted chicken and Halloween candy for supper tonight.
A politician, of course. (or a person who is about to meet one)
Happy All Hallow's Eve
Damn liberals really have taken over the country.
Porch swept. Check.
Scary witch put out. Check.
Other scary sign put out. Check.
Scarecrow perched in flower bed. Check.
Porch light cover repaired. Check.
Strobe light positioned behind bushes in flower bed. ... Almost.
Scary movies on the TV. Check.
Candy unbagged and at the ready. Check.
The only missin' is ... sniff ... my Bird. I miss her more at Halloween time than any other, since it was the only "holiday" I didn't have to share with some other family. Sniff.
Oh, and Dr. ER is AWL. Visiting her sister in Ohio.
Given her somewhat redundant description, I guess she really wanted to drive the point home.
