I've washed my face 5 times since last night, but the last 10% of eyeliner refuses to budge. Cheers to you, L'Oreal
And cheers to Helenjane
for throwing a super-fun Halloween party! I was humbled by her and Hilary's 90210 re-enactment
, as well as the mad la-vor-a-tory
and the many other revelers' boundless creativity
Thankfully, my Halloween costume
found each other just in the nick of time. Though most people didn't get it (I blame it on the expense of HBO), those who did made up for the loss. The toy dog and the press-on nails tie for my favorite prop of the night... I really wish I had more opportunities to wear shimmering purple talons.
was unable to join me. This makes it all the more amusing/annoying that I had to go to Home Depot and buy 3 feet of rubber tubing
for his costume. I skillfully avoided the helpful HD staffer's questions about what I'm using it for ("Halloween costume!") and what exactly do I mean by that ("Well, do you get HBO?") and what show, then, am I referring to ("... The Sopranos?"), nimbly escaping in the nick of time to leave him scratching his chin in the plumbing aisle.
If I have time this weekend (we're taking Game Night
on the road!) I want to track down all my Halloween pics from the last 10 years and scan them in. Off the top of my head, I think my collection dates back to UMASS freshman year, when I was Bride of Frankenstein. Amateur, sure, but excellent hair.
Just try and tell me this
isn't the best picture ever. I didn't realize until today how much Martha Stewart. Adriana La Cerva, and Purgatory have in common.
If Halloween is any indication, I think SF might be my soul-mate city.
