Halloween Costumes 2010 - What to do this year?


 What are you dressing up as this year?


  1. OMG y'all are hilarious!

    So, I'm hoping this story won't offend you...

    Back when I was still running the music school, there was one teacher who was a total problem child. He was the most charismatic human I have ever met, and he totally knew it, and constantly "got away with murder".

    Anyhow, one day, near Halloween, he had been up to his regular tricks... showing up late, borrowing school equipment without asking, and just generally making my life difficult. So he's joking around, being his charismatic little self, and he asks me what I'm going to dress up as for Halloween. Without batting an eye, I said, "I'm gonna be a bitch this year."

    Oh, it was wonderful. He stopped dead in his tracks, and I could practically see all of the little gears in his brain grinding to a halt, and the smoke pouring out of his ears as he tried to figure out whether I had really said "bitch" instead of "witch," and whether this all meant that he was really in trouble this time. It was one of my more satisfying "boss" moments!

  2. That's a great story eco cat lady. So what this year? Where do you go to from bitch? Love it when people don't know you're joking.

  3. GREAT COSTUMES!!! We've not ever done Halloween before, there is no trick or treating around us as we live on acreage. I'm thinking of maybe starting this year with a bit of Halloween food and decor around the house. Your lanterns look cool, No time left this year but something I'll keep up my sleeve for future years. :) Happy Halloween!

  4. I think I'll keep it simple and go as a crazy cat lady! :-)

And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead.”
