Halloween Weekend

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:00 am

Sadly, I think out of all the holidays, Halloween is my least favorite. Probably due to the anxiety of me having to come up with a costume. Once I got dressed up, I was fine. But the dread of “what to wear” was horrible.

I used to still dress up when I worked at a place that had a costume contest every year. Out of the four and a half years that I worked there, I had good costumes twice. I won second place the year I dressed up as Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter and actually wrestled a (plastic) alligator. My last Halloween there I won first place for dressing up as Anna Nicole Smith. Complete with Sugar Pie, my Bobby Trendy pillow, a hideous blonde wig, blue eyeshadow and red lipstick, I slurred and flirted my way around the room, cooing at some of the VPs, and won myself four suite tickets to a hockey game at the American Airlines Center.

I hate it that Halloween is one of those ‘date’ holidays rather than a ‘the last Saturday of the month’ holidays. I mean, a Monday night? That’s a school night! We typically don’t do the door-to-door trick-or-treating anymore anyway though. We’ve done carnivals or festivals or whatever people want to call them the last four years. It’s actually more convenient and more fun and a whole lot safer. Today, Elle and Zed have a ‘Fall Festival’ at their after-school program. Tomorrow we’ll go to Boo at the Zoo. Breakfast, then a train ride down to the zoo. It should be a great afternoon. The most exciting part though is that Nick is coming along. After four months of dating, and talking to my kids about him for the last month, we’re all ready for them to meet. Zed and Elle are both very excited. Nick is really looking forward to it too. I’m nervous as hell of course. Zed is dressing up as Harry Potter. For probably the third or fourth time. I think maybe he took a break and was ‘just’ a wizard one year. Elle is going as the Pink Power Ranger. Why? We don’t watch the Power Rangers! I don’t even know the name of the Pink Power Ranger! Needless to say, their dad bought them their costumes.

Happy Spooking!

Update: I got a call from my STBX this afternoon. Next Friday is our court date. In less than one week I will be D-I-V-O-R-C-E-D! You know what’s sad though? That they even have a CD like this. Next Friday: Party in Dallas…who’s buying my first round? 😉
