Halloween



So what are you dressing up as this year? I didn't have time to make a costume, though I think dressing as Lorena Bobbitt would send a certain message to the someone "special"....just kidding. I liked this photo I saw today. Great costume! I love Rene Magritte.
Previous years I've been: A tree with a witch crashed into it w/a don't drink & fly sign. A bag of groceries. A Firestone tire with my head sticking out of the blowout (during that recall), Dr. Evil & used my little sister as mini me. The floor of a movie theatre, a flower in a pot- I even stuck a fuzzy bee on my cheek! Last year I did a vampire because it was easy & I ordered the Lestat contacts. I just wanted an excuse to wear a spiked collar to work!!!! Plus the fangs I had were great..... So give me your all time favorites- even if it's only been someone you saw dressed up! I saw a great costume one year in the village parade. This guy was walking around in a clear casing with balloons inside. He was a lava lamp! Pretty cool....

I work with a bunch of computer geeks and I have not dressed up for Halloween in years. One dorks down stairs has dressed up a Hershey Kiss, another moron puts on his hop-a-long Casidy costume. There are a lot a very strange engineers working here. If you every wondered where those strange people you went to school with end up working, they are all here.

I was going to take my 14 year old daughter trick or treating tomorrow night, but it is not my night with her and her mom will not let her go. I will be home, in my Walter Matthau costume from Grumpy old men and hand out candy

I've known a few engineers.... they are great people- just ask them! Sorry, had a few bad experiences. I do love computer geeks though for the most part. They are like big kids & great in small doses. I don't know if I would be OK with large groups though.
Sorry to hear that you won't have your daughter but I do love the Walter Matthau costume idea! I posted that reply BTW... very long but your details are there.

i thought about putting together a Dwight Shrute ensemble, but i realized yesterday that our office manager has him cold without even trying.

i was a traffic cone one year, complete with tire tracks.

NotANiceGirl said...

YES!!!! That rocks!!! Dwight... oh man! Too bad. Love the traffic cone!!! I was going to make a candy corn costume last year but thought it would have been a pain in the ass.

Jimbo said...

If you want a pain in the ass costume, maybe you should have J walk right behind you!! bahahahahaha

By the Walter Matthau costume, I just ment I was going to be myself. I get teased that I am going to be just like him when I get to be an old man. but I have another 40 years before I am an old man.

I deleted my comment. I was feeling a little guy shy

Jimbo said...

Why are you feeling guy shy? If you can tell the knee story to us, you should not feel shy about anything

NotANiceGirl said...

I finally started uploading my Joshua Tree pictures to the Internet. I have the on fototime. com. If you go there and do a search on Joshua Tree you should find them. I will get a better link for you tomorrow. Work blocks my access to those kinds of sites. I have to do all of my uploading from home. It take a while to upload 8 MB files over DSL

NotANiceGirl said...

SWEET. I'll see if I can find them.

My best costumes were back when I was a kid. I was wonder woman one year,a belly dancer,a Geisha girl,a cowgirl of course,an old lady...Your costumes sound super creative NANG! I wish I knew and/or wanted to know how to sew:-)Although, they have nifty cloth glue and velcro now huh?
