And then it was November


WARNING: This post may include gratuitous pictures. The boobs that you see are obviously not real. But if you are on a work computer they may look real from a distance. Just sayin.

I am in serious awe at the speed that this year has flown by. It feels like just yesterday I was getting tasered on the Fourth of July, and now it is officially the second day of November. If the Mayan’s are correct,we have approximately 3 years left before the shit starts to hit the fan. Which means I really have to get my ass in gear if I want to reach my goal of completing AFI’s 100 years 100 movies list. Though I am well on my way.

But back to more exciting things, like my past weekend.

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday, and this year was definitely no exception. LA and her roommate threw a party this year to celebrate both of their birthdays, and of course Halloween. After hosting the party last year, I had an idea as to how crazy things could get- but what ensued surpassed any of my expectations.

I now present you with the highlights.

**I am having an extremely difficult time writing anything today. My entire body is bruised, can’t feel my butt, I can’t turn my neck, and I’m missing skin on my elbows and thighs. Why you ask? Because this genius decided that stair-surfing on an ironing board would be an awesome idea! AND IT WAS!!! At least until LA and I rode together and experienced what will now be known as the Great Crash of 2009. I wish I had footage, because it was soooooo worth this pain.

Friday night, a group of us got together to start decorating the house and carve pumpkins. I didn’t actually carve any myself, (because the last time I tried I ended up with a bloody finger and a pumpkin that resembled Sloth from the Goonies) but I somehow ended up with the task of scraping the goo out of everyone else’s pumpkins. I still have orange underneath my nails.

Moving on to the party. Turns out there are some pretty crafty things you can do with food. Someone even tortilla chips in the shape of ghosts, cats and other scary creatures.

chips, how crafty.

Most importantly, you must see our costumes. Heed the warning above.

    I've seen so many costumes in the last four days. But Ghouls Gone Wild and the Most Interesting Man in the World are easily — easily — two of the best. Well played. Well played.

    Sounds like a good time was had! Body soarness is always proof.

  • CarissaJaded

    I know! I almost posted the other day about how the only reasons I wish I were a boy sometimes were for the ease of peeing and for the awesome choices of Halloween costumes. But then I thought that might sound weird… But seriously, it's not fair!

  • CarissaJaded

    Why thank you! It was a great time. And yeah… I'd say body aches are always a good clue that good times were had!

  • CandiceW

    Seriously!! I totally would have went as Balloon Boy.
