Possible Halloween costumes.

1. Grandma. I'm thinking of wearing a curly, graying hairstyle. (unlike every other day?)

2. Closet Yeti. I could wear all my sweaters and all my pants.

3. Procrastinator. Carrying my calendar around, sporting an anxious facial expression.

4. Cook. Since the setting would be nine tenths of the costume, you'd come see me at home, in my kitchen.

5. Political Freak. Wearing a constant digital feed of poll data.

6. Film Critic. Dyspeptic expression, pen light, with a perpetual rude remark on my lips--also, spouting my faulty recollections of crucial plot details.

7. Deconstructed Bruiser. First, I'd take transparent contact paper and press it against Bruiser's flanks, then construct a shirt, to be worn inside out. My expression would be soulful, canine, debonair.

Open to suggestions, though I will probably just be College Professor, on Sabbatical.


  1. Lol I loved the ideas. My vote goes to the procrastinator. (it made me laugh out loud when i read it) Happy Halloween!

  2. whichever one you choose (and they are all wonderful), you must also, always be carrying a laptop since it strikes you are always blogging!

  3. HA. Loved this. Would like a post one day on where the Halloween Hate came from. Myself, I love Halloween.

    Carry on.

  4. I am always masquerading as the college professor, the procrastinator, the wearer of dog hair. This year I will be going as Mother Drinking Wine while Son Trick or Treats, a perennial favorite. When I was pregnant I went as Pregnant Woman. But one year I dyed my hair black and went as Bat Woman. That was fun. I love Halloween, but I'm destined to fail with the costumes. I love the candy and pumpkin seeds.

  5. I love them all! If only there was a way you could be them all at the same time.

    I am going as a frazzled high school teacher who is losing her voice.
