Welcome, October!

My favorite month of the year begins and I am so far behind! I have yet to make the Hallween card, but I have started on the costume. Due to the busyness of starting a new job, I thought I would skimp on the costume this year. However, after seeing old friends last week, I have been inspired -- or is it only competetive? Whatever the impetus, I have a better idea than the one I was planning to use, so we'll see how it turns out.



Appropriately enough for our entry into October Country, it is a cool and rainy day. Perfect for grading papers which is what I ought ot be doing, rather than daydreaming about Halloween. Which reminds me -- I need to scan in the picture from my folks of three little kids in their scary Halloween costumes quite a few years ago...

Ha ha! It seems that a lot of people are getting competitive this year!

Is it because we're back on track with a party after a year off? Or because we have great prizes? Or is it just fun?

Can't wait to see it!

Well, I give up already if Kate's competitive!!!

And, Cranky, we do it because it's FUN!

Damn right! It's so good to be back among folks who take Halloween seriously (well, in a a funny way!). Competetive not so much because I want to win (although, I'm not against winning -- having, ahem, won the costume contest previously as Freya :-) but because I don't want to look lame amongst the many fabulous costumes!

Right now my main task is trying to make the headpiece less painful to wear...

Nobody throws a Halloween shindig like the Boojums! Whoo hoo!

Well, there you go...the one reason why we, The Boojums, do it as well. It's FUN!!!!
:-D

And then there are the prizes! You come up with some very cool ones, that's for sure.

But mostly the fun -- yay!
