I think we did this last year. What are you (especially you regulars) doing for Halloween? More importantly, how will you be dressed?
I will be attending a charitable benefit for an inner city youth arts charity. With the theme being "Trashtastic", it's only fitting that my beloved and I will be going as Britney Spears and Kevin Federline.
She will be Britney, but only because she has a slightly better ass than I do. With luck, there will be decnt pics of this.
I've got a group of friends that I'll be getting together with tonight. We don't dress up (we're poor and not horribly creative), but last year we went to a local theater for midnight showings of Dead Alive/Braindead and Suspiria on consecutive weekends. The theater's showing The Fly (Cronenberg, not Neumann) tonight, so instead of seeing that, it's a Dario Argento marathon on IFC, and we're staying in for that. Dinner and/or beverages will probably be served as well.
I already went to my main party for the weekend, a drunken affair full of co-workers and an open bar. The only downside of those sorts of things is that you never want to do anything that will make the next work day REALLY awkward. I have learned this lesson and avoided it this time. Tonight is a low key gathering, and I likely will just wear the robes of the costume for tonight. I went as:

Probably a bandwagon Red Sox fan (heist A-Rod t-shirt, modify as needed), although I thought of a couple of good ideas. Too bad they wouldn't be practical... imagine playing Donkey Konga with two or three bodies hanging off of you.

I had a couple friends over to watch Halloween tonight.
Tomorrow I'll be going over to a female friend's house with some others to watch any combination of Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween: H20, The Thing, The Terminator, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street.
I met him fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the must rudimentary sense of life or death, good and evil, right or wrong. I met this six year old child, with this bland, pale, emotionless face. And the blackest eyes... the Devil's eyes. I spent eight years try to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up, for I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... Evil.
Originally posted by LexusI came in second at my work's costume contest over two chicks in bondage.
Any other opponent and I'd say you got jobbed. This time, though...the right two won.
As for myself, I take off my glasses and have my Halloween fun as a person with above-average vision. No driving, obviously.

As an ex-copper, I'd say you usually have a pretty fair chance on the speeding ticket thing in court. I never wanted to go to court, and my gun was never freshly calibrated. The pulling over the the left thing is usually not as well tolerated.
