QotD: Halloween Costume Preparations

If you are going to dress up for Halloween, what will you be? Why?

I tend not to dress up for Halloween anymore. Not for lack of interest or a sense of being “too old” to do so. It’s just that I work from home. So if I don my killer bee outfit or transform myself into Dubmbledore, then spend all day by myself working in the house, I worry that such behaviour would technically be some sort of disorder. Perhaps a low-grade schizophrenia. I have enough neuroses already and can’t afford anymore.

However, I do have a sweet “Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” t-shirt that I do where every Halloween.

    I’m dusting off the Malificent costume with three foot evil horns and all. Muah ha ha. But I must also add that the old ladies getup last year is still my favorite.

    It doesn’t matter what I am anymore, only what Julie is. I get the pleasure of being a supporting cast member. This year, as you can tell, Julie is going to be a chicken (I have a video of her in the costume saying bock bock bock too).

    This year, I’ll probably end up being a bull, or a farmer, or some other farm animal. If I get lucky maybe I’ll be an egg.

    Oh, and I know this is sort of off topic, but I have to voice again my distaste for the hovering ghosts. They’re messin up my mojo.

    That is all.

    Taube, that egg thing really FREAKED ME OUT. You need to never, ever do anyhting like that again. Please.

    You daughter is adorable and I love her, but I may have to call someone and report you if you are subjecting her to that insanity. Thank goodness I know you have Mrs. Taube to keep you sane.

    If you must be an egg (I really really love you so!) may I suggest a ninja egg. They were the least frightening.
