Halloween Approaches!

Time to furiously work on those costumes -- time is getting shorter. Have to get the glue gun out today. First, though I have to run out to the stores because we need a new color ink cartridge, the sure sign that production of our Halloween cards has begun! Oh, well -- more in the mail today, assuming all goes well. I have to make sure I get all my reading and course prep done before the weekend so I can enjoy the big Boojum Halloween party with a clear conscience. And let's hope Gene's feeling better by then, too. A cold has laid him low for the last few days, which he finds very inconvenient.



For your amusement -- here's a blast from the past, courtesy of Howard (again, yeah -- the blackmail payment is on its way). It's my first attempt at a Norma Desmond costume (recycled a few years later with greater success, but without my [later] wedding shoes -- and hey! aren't those the gloves from Carla's wedding?). It was sometime in the eighties, somewhere at USC...

Yes, tell Gene we love him dearly, but we don't love his germs.

Tell Gene to get better. Halloween is my favorite holiday and no one should be sick on Halloween. I, of course, waited to the last minute to create my costume. So I will be feverishly searching for suitable attire for our annual Halloween party on Saturday. I love the Nora Desmond!

Sorry mistype, not Nora but Norma!

You were just reading my mind for next year's possible costume -- me and Gene as Nick and Nora Charles! It could work. And it would just make sense to have the martini shaker along...

So, Robyn, what's your costume going to be?
