It Was Fun While It Lasted

But man, Halloween is exhausting! Especially since Matilda has figured out how to maximize her candy intake by moving as quickly and efficiently as possible from house to house.

While I loved all of your ideas for my costume, my foot was feeling much better today, so I decided to risk another week of not being able to do laundry (heh, sorry Steve) and go without the crutches. I kinda wanted to be Nancy Kerrigan, but it's just too cold for a really good ice skating costume. Anyway, I think my final choice went well.

Here's a picture from the end of our long night, Freya still hasn't had enough sugar apparently, but that glaze over Matilda's eyes? Oh yeah, you know what that is.


The guy in the middle? Me. A sleazy, overweight, hairy-chested, white-boy-afro-ed, non-denominational, Bible salesman. And yes, I had to explain the non-visual part a few times. But it was worth it. And I totally freaked out one guy when I asked if he wanted to buy a Bible, he thought I was serious.

I am scared to death of that patch of chest hair. I'll have nighmares for years to come.

Your costume is hilarious. Oh, and I wanted to call into the radio show tonight, but my computer wasn't letting me listen live so I felt like a dumb ass calling in when I had no idea what you had already talked about. Boo! Perhaps next time you're on the show we shall chat.
