Had our Halloween FHE tonight. I was the first person there to wear a costume and that was AWK-WARD at first, but by the end of the night there were about 10 people with costumes on. There was pizza and caramel apples, so I took a piece of pizza to the caramel apples station and made a caramel pizza. Because I can't eat raw apples. I really should have taken a picture of it.
My costume was pretty lame because I was a cowboy without a decent cowboy hat. SO I went to Wal-Mart to hopefully find a cheap hat, but instead found a bandit (Zorro) mask/hat combo. The hat reminded me of and old-timey preacher, and there was a skull necklace there that got me thinking. If my cowboy costume is lame, I'll just paint my face as a skull and go as a cursed preacher, or demon vicar or something. So I bought a black shirt at Value Village to complete the ensemble. I bought about four times as much face paint as I thought I would need because I'd rather have too much than run out halfway through. So here's what I came up with:
On Friday morning I got up at six to shower/shave/do the face paint, and I was still ten minutes late for class. I did make a pretty good entrance, though. The teacher had seen Zombieland earlier in the week and I totally freaked her out upon my sudden entrance. Got my picture taken at the photo studio for the costume contest, but there were some really good ones out there. There was a Bumblebee (from the new Transformers movie) and a really good Strong Bad Holding A Trogdor Picture. I voted for Strong Bad.
At the stake dance that night there were some pretty good costumes. Bethany was a lobster. I managed to scare/irritate a few people with my eyes closed trick. Basically I stand behind a person I know, say their name, and then when they turn around I keep my eyes closed and just stare at them for a moment. In the low light it looks like a real mask, and it's especially eerie when I open my eyes. People really couldn't recognize me with my face paint on.
Here's Beth, Janice, and I:
Yes I have my glasses on. Yes I'm a dork.
Also, my computer decided to revolt this afternoon. It stopped accepting my password to get into my administrator account. Very odd. I kept putting it in over and over again, but it didn't work until I turned my computer off, left the house for a few hours, and came back and tried it again. Man, I really need to upgrade to Windows 7, giant burger or not.
Video time! And it's Halloween themed!
Math is only fun when this sort of thing happens:
Batman sightings continue in France...
And I would be remiss if I didn't include at least one 5 Second Film:
