Happy Halloween everybody!
I am a usual merrymaker so I of course love a holiday where I can dress like a superhero and eat candy until I pass out. Also I’m a big dork who still likes to dress up and pile her hair until I feel like I can rival the natural glow of a young brunette Dolly Parton. Earlier in the Halloween season I went around with my good friend Nancy and we dressed up as everyday people:
Tonight I find myself dressed like the world’s shortest amazon, yep I finally had no excuse to reveal my real identity of Wonder Woman. Not a surprise to my readers as I already shared earlier this year that my work has practically made me a Wonder Woman.
And since I went out on Friday and Saturday, let’s just be honest… I am a little too lazy to go out on a Wednesday. Especially because one of these days… I’m going to get to work on time. So I got to have the joy of passing out candy to tiny children dressed like a rainbow of princesses and a myriad of video game/cartoon characters. They were adorable, and yes I was judging children on their manners. I was thrilled when a this one Red Riding Hood told me to “have a lovely holiday.” I was quite taken with her, she was top on the list of what I hope my children do someday in the future, you know when I get around to baby-ing. And quite candidly I was totally shocked by a little boy who was dressed like Woody from Toy Story wanted to give up his life with his parents and move in with me. Frankly, I have a feeling his parents need to worry about how much he liked a girl in red lipstick and big hair giving him candy. He just walked into my house like he belonged there, his mother said “I think you have a friend.” And I nearly took him to watch the episode of 30 rock that was rolling on my tv. I mean I was running out of time for all this trick or treating stuff…. Tina Fey was all up on my television being fey-licious.
And oh yes, let’s get to the doodle. Now that we discussed the reverse kidnapping, and future child manners that happened earlier tonight…
I hope that you find yourself out in the world tonight having fun and enjoying the holiday of mischief and merrymaking. But don’t stop tonight… tomorrow looks great for mischief too.

Happy Halloween to you too! I hope you carry the party onto Dia De Los Muertos tomorrow!
Love this! Halloween isn’t as popular here altho it’s getting there, of course commerce is changing that. Last night I went out as a sad Canadian expat and cried in front of the corner shop owner-lady. That is as far as I got. I miss Halloween!
I’m sorry about your public weeping. That sounds like how I spent my nights a few months ago. Actually, everyone in the downtown area I shop knows all of my business… I hope you are treasuring the last days of your Italy adventure. And when you come to this side of the world, you slap on a costume any time of the year! I think you are the kind of gal who could pull off a costume any old time, and “button appreciation day” is coming up.
Thank goodness she went as a firefighter because you are four alarm fire hot in that Wonder Woman costume!
Ooooh I need to print that as on a card and keep that comment with me everytime I feel like one big BLAH!
Thanks Jen, you brightened my already sunshine-y day!
Thanks La-La Lauren!
You two managed to tow the line between sexy and fun perfectly. You had great costumes that didn’t just constitute a braw and tail.
Thanks! Personally I know I have no luck with being “sexy.” So I just show up as dorky old me and then I still get in precarious situations. That night I actually almost fell into shrubbery trying to get this guy away from me… then it all fell into place and Nancy got to perform a sexy rescue. We then ate brownies, and giggled at the rescue that just occurred… in a more dorky than sexy manner, of course.
I think that qualifies as becoming mayor of sexyville. Dorky (if also cool) has much more staying power though– just enjoy both while you can.
