Karen here, with a quick Halloween update. We've decided to have the first annual Haunted House Haunted House party this Halloween, in lieu of the treats that most of us have no use for (we're going to avoid tricks for the time being also, actually). I've done a quick poll of some of our friends to see what they are planning on going as, and here's what they told me, along with my own editorial comments:
Phoebe: A flapper (ooooh, pretty, I bet!)
Margi: Countess Bathory (Huh?)
Tommy: A zombie (jerk!)
Colette: "Evil Tinkerbell" (huh?)
Kevin: Rorschach (some sort of superhero, I guess)
Tak: (Stares sullenly, doesn't answer question)
Popeye: Pinhead (I won't tell you how he's making his "costume")
Tayshawn: Indiana Jones (Good for you!)
Adam: A zombie (big jerk!)
Sylvia: Hannah Montana
Melissa: Clown (Scary!)
Jacinta: "The Green Woman" (Not sure what this means, but apparently it involves wearing shrubbery)
Mal: Dumbledore (I can't wait!)
I was going to go as a "Traditionally Biotic Person" and dress in a way that I imagined would be incredibly ironic and funny, but A). I started to think it was a lame idea when Adam and Tommy shared their "ideas", and B). I kind of dress that way all the time, anyway.
So I need your help: What should my costume be?
What are you going as?
Ideas, people! (And please--don't tell me I should be a cheerleader!)
