She will be wearing an ostentatious pantsuit and too much makeup. She will be carrying a martini glass and insulting people to their faces all night.
I will be wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, a bald cap, and yarmulke made from a slipper. I will also be eating ice cream sandwiches all night.
I LOVE YOU THE MOST. Rendezvous with these awesome people (none of which are myself, unfortunately).

THE SECOND MOST. Check for GSR.
Scrapped the CSI idea.
Now we're frantically looking for powder blue shirts and red knit caps so we can go as Team Zissou.
Okay, yes. What a year of good ideas from Schippe Wreck.

No, you're thinking of the Blue Man Group. But seriously, that's wonderful and exactly what I wanted to do, but I waited too long to get the necessary materials. So instead I had to settle for being the guy who impersonated Ben Roethlisberger. I don't look anything like him, but he didn't look anythng like Ben.

Change of plans, which is good because themed costumes usually end up great for her, not for me.
I'm going as a game of three card monte. Went from idea to costume in about six hours. Just imagine this (img.photobucket.com) hanging off my belt, and I'm wearing a nametag saying "Hello My Name Is: Monty". (Yes, those are Chuck E. Cheese cards of a 1982 vintage.)
Well...the dress code was suspended at work today, and the boy is at the day care (as a cowboy) and I got to go trick or treating through the plant with him.
I couldn't afford an elaborate costume, not even enough to cobble together a decent Jedi costume. So I threw on my Reggie White jersey, football pants, and a Packers helmet I had around...The Ghost of Packers' Victories Past.
Based on yesterday's performace, I was lucky I didn't get egged walking around the office.
I wasn't in the Halloween mood at all lately since i've been busy with school. But I figure since we're going over to my sister's for dinner and all the kids our dressed up, i'd get a little festive. So i've:
~Thrown on my "1000% GUAPO" Shocker shirt -track pants -two black wristbands -spiked my hair up -a wrestling belt over each shoulder
so i'm kinda sorta a generic rudo...? I know Shocker is a face, but the shirt gives off that cocky vibe. I'll steal some candy from my nephews and niece and flash mean looks without saying a word. oh yeah.
Now if only I can get my best friend to throw in a bikini and pose with me so she can look like one of those lucha ring girls, it'd be complete (seeing as she's hispanic and isn't bad looking). Maybe for a pic, I guess, just not around the kids. hahaha.

The bar that I go to every year always has a different costume theme.......this year the theme was "80's Rockers".
I was able to dig out my old "heavy metal rocker" costume that I put together back in the early 90's.
Long and big haired wig. Zebra striped spandex pants and shirt. Studded leather belt, leather studded wrists bands, leather studded neck collar and leather studded fingerless gloves. Denim vest with "HEAVY METAL RULES" air brushed on the back. Bandanas tied to my arms and ankles and also hanging from my studded belt. 3 different chain necklaces with crosses on them. Mirrored aviator sunglasses. And I carried around a pair of drum sticks.
(After all these years, that costume still gets the women.......go figure.)
Have I done a good enough job as a father to my 3 kids that they will be successful in life? Of course I hope to live and see this happen, but it is something I try to remember whenever I don't think I have time to do something with them, etc.
