13 Days Til Halloween...

... Silver Shamrock!

Yes, a reference to one of the worst movies in the Halloween series. But the song is stuck in my head, as I visited a website that reminded me there are only 13 days left.

There are only 11 days left until a Halloween party I'm expected to attend. My problem is, all my costumes are in storage, the trunk was too big to haul last week. I didn't even think about grabbing one or two things from it, as I was there on no sleep and had a mission.

Forget places like Party City. The last thing I want to do is be the 100th perverse nun at the party. Let's face it, most Halloween costumes for women anymore are designed to make us all look like novice streetwalkers. That wouldn't be my style, even if I had the body for it. Not to mention, the people who design those skimpy outfits obviously live somewhere warm.

So, I am forced to look in my closet. For some reason, I seem to have a good number of conservative clothing. I have two ideas, where I can use the clothes in my closet... Wearing something drab and either grey or black and carrying a briefcase that says IRS. The other idea is a pink sweater set, (people do get scared at the idea of me wearing pink.) a string of pearls and a pair of slacks. While carrying a bible or a text book on Intelligent Design. Yes, the idea of going as a Christian Fundamentalist is even scarier to me than the idea of the IRS.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

YOu would look amazing as a girl from the 1920's or 30's. Words are escaping me. Brain fart, sorry.

Cut off your hair, slouch over so you're even shorter than you are, mutter mindlessly to yourself, wear a bad 70's suit, and go as Nick Cave.

djmuggy, they were called Flappers. Sadly, the dress that would be good for that is in the trunk in storage. Not to mention, the style was short hair.

j7088, I learned this summer at my nephew's 5th birthday party that I can't do cat makeup to save my life. Not to mention, I don't have the body for a cat suit.

Voodoo, remind me to hunt you down and smack you. If I dress like Lyndie Englund, I'm going to be expected to have the TENS unit in tow. I don't own one, but just about everyone who will be there knows how I want to add a violet light wand to my gear. Hurricane Katrina, if only I knew where my stormy colors chiffon dress was. Same with the Fundie version. Same with next year's hurricane. A hurricane victim is a concept... But then I'd be tempted to try to loot the bar. Judith Miller or Harriet Meirs, I'd have to cut my hair. Not to mention for Miller, I'd have to wear Ann Taylor. Blech. You know, I'm almost fat enough to do Karl Rove in drag, but I don't want to listen to the right wingers who will be there. I'm starting to understand how Bloomberg and Gulliani got elected. To do Tina Marie's Vampira, well, that's how that crowd is used to me looking. I manage to look goth without even trying.

silhouette, or, I could forgo the horns and just say I'm dressed up as Monica Lewinsky. I love the ideas for men, however, I have to tell you, most people will tell you I'm the anti-Christ.

dz, if I do the orange tight enough, I can just go as a pumpkin!

bardicman, you just want to be able to sue me when you get whiplash.

Pasting, I'm not cutting off my hair and going as Nick Cave. I'm not tall enough or skinny. And he doesn't wear leisure suits! Although, if you were going to grace us with your presence this year, (I know, I know) then I would get the leisure suit, cut my hair to below the shoulders, have it straightened, dye it blonde and go as Paul Williams, just to give you nightmares! (Hey, that gives me an idea... You should go, dressed as Winslow Leach!)

It's Lisa Marie in the Tim Burton movies (inc. Ed Wood). Teena Marie sang "Lovergirl" ibn the 80's. And MissAnn, if I can make an outfit and go to sam's, then so can you! (still not sure if I will wear it on the subway, since it won't be Halloween yet, or change into it there.) Hope to see you there..

Blonde midgets with Sophia Loren glasses do not scare me, MissAnn.

Going to a Halloween party, or ANY AFF_ party, now THAT scares me.

I'd like to attend the party.

Then again, I think Anna Nicole Smith really loved that 95 year old gazillionaire that she married. I heard she met him on this site.

I would not mind attending (kinda), but the 1% of people I'd actually not mind seeing, will be interspersed with 99% of the people I either can't stand, can't stomach, or can't legally stop from breathing. And of the 1% I'd actually not mind seeing, half of them don't even acknowledge me for more than 30 seconds before scurrying off to go talk with a wall rather than me.

I will be spending my time with my lady, which is the one thing in my life that makes me happy.

Dodging backstabbing assholes with long faces dressed in costumes they have no business being in if they are not dressed as Mr. Ed is not the way I care to spend my time.

I would not mind seeing you, I actually enjoyed the honor of receiving your extended middle finger every time I saw you.

I still think you should go as Nick Cave. Wear elevator shoes. They are part of the Kathie Lee line at K Mart you are so proud to own.

Or maybe you can get hair extentions and go as Cousin Itt. You may be a tad too tall for the part but I doubt anyone would notice, especially since I won't be there.

There are only two ways i'll ever go to an AFF_ party again. One is as a goof. The other is at gunpoint, and even that is only a maybe. I think i'd rather do a JFK (take a shot to the head) than a AFF_ party.

Cause, if you're still doing the same costume, that is so easy and so ingenious... I'm tempted to come as your twin.

Pasting, but you know once Winslow became the Phantom of the Paradise, he started killing people left and right. So it would give you license to kill. No? As far as the back stabbing assholes, do what I do. Get drunk and when they bug you while you're smoking outside, just take the cigarette and burn them. They never believe you're really going to do it until it hits their skin. You'd think they'd all know me better by now, no? And would you stop with the Kathie Lee crap? You only do that to make my Talbot's clad skin crawl.

MissAnn, I am the Phantom of the AFF_ parties because no-one ever sees me there ...

As for the burning with ciggies bit, yeah that can be fun. But even that is no match for the pain I suffer from being around 99% of the AFFF'ers for the very reasons I previously stated.

Too many asshole backstabbers and naysayers and plastic people for me to stomach without a bazooka. Nothing worse than being around drunken AFF_ asshole backstabbing plastic naysayers. I'd rather help OJ look for the real killers. I'd rather watch "Being Bobby Brown" reruns.

psychick, do you wear a 6B? If so, I want to go through your shoes, period! I'm trying to get my roomie to get a bunch of Jack Chick tracts from her mother, so I can hand them out. However, when I asked, she told me I was scaring her. She doesn't get that I need something to go with the costume.

Pasting, Oh, just hang out with my group and listen to me get more catty as I get drunker. But you know, OJ does need help finding the real killers. They don't seem to frequent the same golf courses as he does. So someone has to go look for clues on the whites only courses, which still do exist in this country. I've never heard of "Being Bobby Brown". Please tell me that's not a real show.

you know, that silhouette of psychick really looks like her. Too bad the silhouette is not being thrown unceremoniously into a limo trunk by a drunken AFF_er....

MissAnn, I've seen the catty act and yes it can be amusing. Thank you for the offer but I must deline.

Try not to be upset about it.

MissAnn I hope you have a fun time at the party.

Being Bobby Brown is a fascinating reality show that ran on Bravo. As fascinating as a nosebleed. Watching two crackhead singers who have more money than they deserve to get through the drudgery of their own lives.....Say hi to Cause, Hapa, Curious and Ona (if they go) and psychick for me. Ignore everyone else for me. Or better yet, break out some Zyklon B and really empty the place out.....

Pasting, I'm telling her you said that...

Now... Catty act. Act? ACT? It isn't an act. It's actually me saying exactly what I want to say and feel. It's me saying to a person's face exactly what other people are dying to say and only say behind their backs. It is pure honestly. Not an act.
