Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Since halloween is upon us, and I'm not particularly interested in trying to scrutinize the latest Google update (at least not for another week or so...) I wanted to ask all of you...
Are you dressing up for Halloween?
- or -
What are the kids dressing up as?
- or -
What was your first halloween costume?
Have a creepy halloween, folks.
I was dissapointed...we just moved to a new house...only about 60 kids...thought we'd have twice that. (Though I hear parts of the city had as many as 1000 come to their homes!)
Was also cold...below 40...so everyone came with their coats on. Basically ended up looking like a steady stream of kids in winter coats asking for hand-outs.
Just not what it used to be...
But I'm currently sitting at my computer wearing my medival wedding dress from 9 years ago... hehehe. Boyfriends kids are a ballerina (homemade costume there, awfully proud of it!), a princess and spiderman.
Later tonight we are taking them trick-or-treating in town, and then going to a kids event at a local museum. Tomorrow night (when kids go to their mom's house), me & Dad are going out to the local bar for the neighborhood costume/balderdash party. (Just need to get him into a costume somehow...)
Go into your cupboards or freezers and find a Green Giant food product, take a good look at the giant there........that's exactly what we looked like!
We had a hoot doing it.
Mac, the connetations and twists that come to mind on that one are just to severe and ridiclous to seriously consider. or maybe not.
Very uneventful evening for me so far, haven't even heard any door-knockers yet, can't be helped my study is two floors above the front door, and my computers make such a lovely twirly-buzzing sound that i can't hear them.
Ach well, i suppose its going to be a cheap holloween, gonna get a chinky (scottish for chinese meal), and hire out a DVD.
I will be the requsite goth dead chick/vampire type
she will be Magenta from RHPS
i have no idea what my first costume was, but it was probably some lame cutsie thing..
My daughters was pretty cool however.. she was a garden fairy.. White tights & leotard w/ a white turtle neck covered with ribbon and little flowers over it (it was cold) and a white ballet skirt which I sewed ribbon and flowers too and a white head wreath - much cuteness :) the best was that every time someone put candy in her little pumpkin bucket she'd take it out and hand it back.. couldn't get her to keep it no matter what.. my things have changed :) this year she *needed* a bigger bag as last years didn't quite cut it.
and I'm going to be a giant, foam rubber Screaming Twinkie.
(A commercial full size Twinkie suit with a "The Scream" mask on that sticks through the face hole).....
Our pumpkin is carved as of last night. It is throwing up pumpkin seeds all down the front steps.
