So, in the hope of recapturing my audience in the wake of the election
debacle victory, I’m going to make a real, solid concerted effort this week to update my blog for FIVE consecutive days.
Now, I know what you’re thinking — “Hirtle, when are you going to let your hair grow out?”
Well, if you’ve seen the top of my head, you know that my longish hair days are fair behind me.
And why would you be thinking that, anyway?
So this week, I have something of a dilemma facing me. As it turns out, I’m supposed to attend a Hallowe’en Party of Gus and Mrs. Paddlewacker’s on, you guessed it, Hallowe’en.
Problem is, I’m not quite sure what sort of costume to wear — and apparently, you must be wearing one to gain access to the hijinx.
I was thinking that going as a human-sized Ed the Sock would be one option, but I’m not sure where I’d get that much yarn.
Also, as a side note, how come Ed the Sock has his own Wikipedia entry and I don’t?? That’s virtually an affront to modern journalism! Haven’t people seen me wearing this shirt??
I could always go with the look fashionably inspired by Tony “Old Reliable” Kornheiser, but that’s sooo 2006.
Anyway, clearly, I’m going to need help fizz-ixing me up a fine costume for the great Boo-fest of 2008.
The quest will continue tomorrow, unless someone sends me a really crankin’ suggestion by then.
(Incidentally, if you do a Google image search for “crankin’ costume,” the first thing that comes up is something that bears a vague resemblance to Marilyn Manson … so, I guess what I’m saying is, don’t waste your time.)
