I do the Monster Mash

Halloween is just around the corner. Time is ticking away and I haven't a clue what my costume should be. I mean, I'm literally drawing a blank. I'm usually pretty prepared...

One year I was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Given this isn't the most original idea, but I was on a "college student's budget" and this costume was borrowed for FREE.

"There's no place like home."

I was among at least nine other "Dorothy's" that night, but I felt like I was the most classy one by far. Which gives me the opportunity to say this: Halloween is not an excuse to dress like a slut!! Girls, be original not slutty... it's just absurd. thanks.

Okay- enough of my soap box- back to what matters- Costumes.

Then one year my office had a Halloween Shindig and I dressed as Pretty Woman, you know at the start of the movie when she's first meets Richard Gere and she's wearing that red blazer, blonde wig, and thigh high boots... Yep- that was me.

This is the only picture I have as pretty woman. It makes me mad that I don't have a better one because I had her down to the bag she was toting to the jewelry she wore. (I realize that the wig does nothing for me and I think I must have thought that's how Julia Robert's would have smiled)

I didn't really think about Pretty Woman being semi-inappropriate for work place event until I overheard my boss while on the phone say, "Well, we had some pretty interesting costumes this year. We had a farmer, Little Orphan Annie, and even a hooker... Yeah a hooker. Can you believe that?" When he got off of the phone I politely let him know that I preferred being refereed to as Pretty Woman... not a hooker!!

Then we have last year's costume, which in my opinion takes the cake. Ryan and I dressed up as Earl Hickey and his ex-wife, Joy, from the NBC show, My Name is Earl.

"Shut up, dummy!"

It was big hit. [however it was tough for me to embrace ryan while he was rocking a 'stache] At the Halloween party we went to everyone loved it.

So, what should I be this year? I can't decide. The only thing I really want is for Ryan and I to be is Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. How great is that? We could even hit up a karaoke bar and live out my dream to sing the duet, Islands in the Stream [one day ryan will sing this with me- he will]

Who knows... I guess we'll have to make a decision by this time next week...
