The Great Pumpkin…

Ok, so Halloween is right around the corner and we do have a party go to but we do Not have any costumes.  Why not, you ask?  The theme of the party is: Mourning Patrick Swayze.  People will dress as characters from his movies or in black for mourning.  Sure, that’s great, but I don’t think I felt for Patrick Swayze the way that the hosts felt for him.  I could only think of two movies he was even in.  I’m approaching a time in my life where if I don’t want to do something, then I’m just not going to do it.  Last year we went to a halloween party for the same hosts and the theme was (yes they love themes): Create Your Own Superhero.  It was a nice idea actually, but we never thought of costume ideas and then 2 hours before we were ripping stuff up from around our apartment.  You have no idea the bizarre shit we were coming up with!  At one point Abe wanted to take our tall standing lamp apart and use the shade to go as a Larva!  I’m not sure I’ve ever laughed so hard at a grown man squooshed into a tiny lampshade.  Later, he took apart our cow humidifier and was going to have me go as Cow Woman.  Now these ideas are all very good, of course, but in the end I dressed in all black and cut out a little eye mask and Abe put on a t-shirt that said: Wingman.  We were the lamest people there for sure, but I just wasn’t feeling it.  So what are we going to do this year?  I have no effing idea, but we almost went as this:

And then I remembered that more than anything else, I really don’t enjoy freezing my bum off at a party where I’m the DD so I can’t even drink to keep warm.  I’d rather stay mostly bundled.  Plus, like who was going to be Chris Farley?  I couldn’t really just assume that I would be Patrick, although I totally have the more awesome hair.
