I'm going to a Halloween party, but I still have no costume! What or who should I be? A pear? A Sperm? Lampost? Gerald Stern? A Rolled Newspaper? Stop Sign? Cabbage Patch Kid? A Rejection Letter? Tony Tost's nuts? Highlighter Pen? A Mirror? TT Boy? Anne Sexton? An Oven? A Bottle of Pills? A Parrot? A Palm Tree? A Stamp?

Margaret Schwartz once went as a Freudian slip. I liked that...

My most fun constume ever was Bonnie and Clyde... but that was with Kris 1... so I don't talk about it much.

Remember those days?

Two cheap & easy costumes (too many jokes there; I'll just let it alone):

a nudist on strike

yourself the morning after (in pj's, robe, & able to tell people what they'll do that night)

Laurel, if you should happen to stop back here, might you explain the execution of that Freudian slip costume? I read your comment last night and was already preparing to go to a party dressed up as a series of cliches (spiders glued to my face and arms for "makes my skin crawl", rats stuck in my hair for "your hair looks like a rat's nest", etc) and I love love love the Freudian slip idea. I'm picturing a huge, as in plus-sized slip covered in Freudian quotes---or maybe a photo transfer of Freud himself.

If you can give me the low down on what the costume looked like, I'd be much appreciative.

And Eduardo, you should go as a rejection letter scrawled on Tost's balls written in highlighter pen. (grin) Seriously, I like all of your ideas, especially Anne Sexton (wear a fur coat darling, and chain smoke) and the mirror.

She was just wearing a slip, and then I think fishnets and stilettos, to be sexy... adn there were words all over the slip... just written with a sharpie... quotes I think....

but any way you did it it would be fun...

Ah Laurel,

I rememeber the farmhouse Halloween parties. The first year I went as a potato sack. I still haven't forgiven myself. But at least it wasn't as bad as Aaron's "Little Hitler" outfit. Geez. Some people.

I also remember the other Kris. The taxi driver? He was cute. Some people have ALL the luck.
