Booooooo! Ahhhhhh!!!

Scared ya, didn't I? ;)

Happy Halloween!!!!

I'm not dressing up today. Are you? I kind of wish I was. Maybe I'll throw on some cat ears or something. Knowing me, I'll forget. Hopefully your comments keep reminding me. ;)

It feels like years since I have dressed up. (ok, it's maybe been two). But, I was bummed to miss out this year because I had a costume planned! And a big party to go to! With an old friend! :( I had about 99% of my costume purchased and ready to go before I made the big mistake that cost me the weekend. Ugh.

Oh, well. I'll save everything for next year. Considering half of Twitter knows what I was going to be, I'll just tell you. I was going to be Pippi Longstocking. I just really wanted to spray my hair red and make the braids stick out with a wire hanger. Hot, right? ;)

In the past I have dressed up as Minnie Mouse, a witch (several times), an angel, a cat (also several times), a bumblebee and Rainbow Brite.

Here's me circa 1997 (sophomore year of high school). Judging by my curly hair,
and bangs, you'd think it was the 80s.
Besides the hair, I don't think I look thaaat different.

Do you enjoy Halloween? What has been your most memorable costume?


I don't necessarily enjoy it, but I don't mind it. I do love haunted houses - which is odd for me because I HATE scary movies!

I do not enjoy Halloween... I am just not a costume person! I know this makes me a bit of a grinch type, but oh well. I do enjoy watching my nephews get dressed up, but that's the extent of my enjoyment for the holiday! I have not dressed up in years - probably like 10 years, actually!

I love Halloween; it may be my favorite holiday or at least a very close second to Christmas Eve and my birthday! Okay, a three-way tie perhaps! I usually dress up as a witch or a cat; sometimes both with costume changes throughout the weekend. I don't think I will dress up this year--something about it being on a Monday and no one dresses up at my office. I may just throw on cat ears or a witches hat tonight for answering the door. I also enjoy dressing up my dog and a cat or two.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Halloween hasn't been fun for me since I stopped Trick or Treating, which was when I was Grade 7! I don't like to dress up either - I always find it so hard to think of a costume! I don't even know what my best costume was. Maybe the Little Mermaid when I was 7 or 8! I do enjoy seeing little kids in their costumes though! They're so cute!

Im not very good at hallowe'en - i don't like dressing up, i don't like looking silly. Two years ago I was a sexy(ish) devil. That was probably my favourite costume.

I used to have Halloween parties at my house all the time. My favorite costume was when I borrowed my ex boyfriend's Mom's Pan Am uniform and went as a flight attendant. It even had the little hat!
