Man, it's cold out. No scratch that... it's FUCKING cold out. This morning I am dressed in layers, one pair pants, a v-neck, a fleece and my columbia ski jacket complete with scarf and gloves and I WAS STILL COLD. Heh, my costume is nanook of the north. Even though it's freezing here, the hookers I go to school with are still wearing their fitted tees under their tiny ass jean jackets that are also fitted, still baring their midriffs. Gag me.
So... Halloween. My plans involve handing out candy to the masses and this year when a 16 year old knocks on my door with a bit of face paint and some street clothes I'm not giving them candy. I bought candy for the KIDS... not anyone taller than me. (except of course for the random 6' 10 yr old of course.)
for the record I think today's friday five is lame, so I'll basically answer their questions my own way. I don't remember what my first costume was... mom? Email me if you can remember..., In the past I have been... (as a child) Raggedy Ann, a witch, a prairie girl--think Laura Ingalls Wilder, a vampire, a clown, I think I may have been a bum one year, and ... that's about all I remember... oh yeah, I was wonder woman when I was about 3. As an adult I have been Jenny from forrest gump, or rather, a hippie. I have been sandra dee, as well as rizzo from grease, and of course who can forget the year we went as gothic whores? Good times. We (Tatum and I) were obsessed with the movie 'The Craft' at the time, and that's where we got the idea. My favorite costume that Tatum ever wore though, hands down was 'Pat Riley' from the saturday night live sketches. she spray painted a wig from her grandma's black, but it didn't turn out, so we used a wig that I had and cut it short. It was fricken hilarious. I am cursing myself today, because had I thought ahead, I would have scanned some pictures in from Halloween's past, so I could share them here. DAMMIT! Of course I don't even have a scanner, though it's on my Christmas list.... but I could have used my mom's. Arg.
When I was probably 8 or 9 my mom got an idea out of one of her magazine's to make 'authentic looking witch skin'. She mixed elmers glue...GLUE! and green food coloring, and painted my face with it. It was great for about 6 minutes, then the itching and the pain started. I could barely move my mouth, and by the end of the night mom helped me wash my face, there were little crack marks all over my face where the glue had cracked. I hated halloween that year. I have given my mom countless years of grief over that, and the year I was raggedy ann and she ruined my red pom-poms. So I will just say if I ever meet the person who's idea it was to torture me like that, I will punch them square in the throat. (charming aren't I?)
I watched about half of e.r. last night before falling asleep, and I have to say the woman on fire was probably one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen on tv in a long time. My God. I'll watch the rest of it tonight, along with friends as I taped both. I did see about half of Survivor as well, and let me just tell you I think it is fucking brilliant they brought the losers back as a third tribe. I am all about the drama. I would be pissed too though if I was one of the two groups who had managed to stay there without getting voted off. I think I saw the outcast group win a mission too, I wasn't paying attention but if they dad man... how sweet that must feel.
My favorite guy besides rupert, is that dude who wears a suitcoat and boxers(?) for some reason it just kills me to see him hanging out shirtless with a tattered suitcoat and those shorts.
ok, enough for today, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
