Halloween is one of my favorite days and I’ve really been living it up dressing and spiders and bats for the last 31 days. It’s all coming to an end though, a sparkly end. This year I decided to dress as a glorious cactus and well, it was fantastic!
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.
Today I am not near a computer as I traveled up to Montana for non-professional reasons.
So with a little bit of internet magic I bring to you today’s very special edition of things from a Halloween Store I need for all the time.
An 8′ tall inflatable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from “Ghostbusters”
I had no idea that my life was so incomplete without a blow up version of a thing I loved when I was a kid. I mean, think of all the magic that my life could have been full of. It just makes me want to sit down drink some Ecto Cooler and watch Punky Brewster with the freaking thing.
Anyone got $140 to spare so my dreams can be alive?

On This beautiful theme of items located in a novelty store that should be used for all times of the year… I bring to you old timey hat.
I call it that because I’m not sure that this is is Vicotrian, Edwardian, or created solely for Eliza Doolittle impersonators.
But whatever the style it was, Christine needs it:
