    My Halloween Costume Is...

    Okay kids, Halloween is approaching and I know many of you will don costumes that would be considered either boring, creative, sexy, funny, or would make one holla, "What the f...!?!"

    So, what will you be wearing on spooky Halloween?

    What's up?

    I probably won't dress myself up for Halloween.

    But I will enjoy watching our son go trick-or-treating dressed up as a zoning officer.

    We are going to a wedding on Halloween, where the reception is 'costume optional'. Given that we are moving right before Halloween, I don't think I'll have the energy to put together a costume. That being said, my hair is kind of crazy curly/long right now, and with the right sunglasses, clothing and love beads I could do a really easy Janis Joplin or something in a pinch.

    I'll be dressed as a California planner -- blue button down shirt and khakis.

    halloween

    I don't plan on wearing one. I'll be staying home passing out goodies to the little snot nosed, ungreatful cretins. I thought of hot wiring my door bell to 110 but chose not to. Can't afford to waste electricity in N. Ohio, you know.

    I'm thinking about dressing as either Wonder Woman or a drag queen. Maybe I'll combine the two....

    I won't be in costume, but we are dressing the weiner dogs as pit bulls. They like to greet people when we open the door.
    I don't dream. I plan.

    I think I may dress as the bringer of doom...
    PROFESSOR CHAOS!



    We actually do dress up here so I'll have to think of something. Since I still catch some flak for my accent I thought I may stick it to these yankees and come as a Confederate Soldier. But some of my co-workers are very literal minded so I don't think they'd get the joke. Our Urban Designer has taken to calling me Jethro so I'm considering dressing as Jethro Bodine from the Beverly Hillbillies.

    Buy a Tonka bulldozer and make a few paper houses. Put a house down here and there, and smash it with the bulldozer.

    Pass out business cards that say something like "Wetlands a problem? We'll pave over them for you!"

    That's awful!! LOL.

    I have never dressed up for Halloween - Mum 'didn't believe in celebrating it'. I think I've been deprived...

    (NO, Rem and Dan, I do not need a sheep costume of my own )
