131. Halloween

Just in case any of you have been living under a rock for the last few years, last night was Halloween. My favorite holiday of the year. I know you are stunned, but its true. The plan was to meet at our friend house and game, scare small children, play halo, scare small children, eat good food, and scare small children. Scaring unaware children and adults alike has been a fun tradition of mine for many many years. Usually I don my cloak, and phantom mask and set myself somewhere near the door, sidewalk or driveway. I then wait for a child or adult to get a little to close and then I jump out and surprise them. This year however I must confess I have been outdone. My friend Malachi came down the stairs in the most spectacular skull and suite outfit I have ever seen! The jaw of the skull even moved! I was amazed, and have decided that I want this costume! It made my cloak and phantom mask look like amateur play. I will post pictures soon, but for now take my word for it. It was awesome!

After awhile we popped in a little Rock Band 2, and discovered that I can sing and drum at the same time. Especially to Bon Jovi songs. Halo was soon to follow, and I am sad to announce that after almost an hour of Halo Team Invictus did not win a single match. It was a sad day, but not a sad Halloween. It was a great weekend, and am excited for next year. I am hopeful that next year we can celebrate the holiday in our own house.

130. Zombie Prom

Zombie Prom was a HUGE success! The night started with most of us gathering at my place for makeup. Corinne was doing mine, and I must say I have a new respect for women. The amount of work you all go into putting that stuff on, plus the added horror of having sharp pointy things next you your eyes is not fun. It took us longer then expected, but after everyones hair and makeup was applied, teased, sprayed, and otherwise done we headed out.

We ate dinner at The Oyster House and I felt bad for about 10 seconds that our friends Devin and Trich had to sit there and wait for us. They were the only people in the place in costume. We were only 30 minutes late and got a lot of head turns as we walked in. A group of 10 people all in costume will get peoples attention. Dinner was great! I had Halibut and Chips.

Then we drive over to The Loft and Zombie Prom began. There we were joined by our friend Stephanie, and we tried to dance to the music. The DJ was inexperienced and had a bad selection of music. However we struggled through and we had a good time dancing. I even got to teach Leanne and Denna some “white boy” dancing. Including but not limited to The Shopping Cart, The Lawn Mower, The Window Washer, and my brothers world famous ABC Dance. We only stayed for a couple of house, and then the music could just not be tolerated anymore. We did have group pictures taken and I will post those as soon as I get them.

For our after party we went back to Dales house and watched ZombieLand. All in all I think Zombie Prom turned out well.

Tonight we are going over to Eve and Mal’s house. I will be scaring children, playing Halo, and eating candy!
