I was going to post a huge rant about Prop. 8...and I might still in the very near future...but at the moment I'm tired but also a little blissed out still by the Obama win, so instead I thought I'd do something fun. BTW, when the election was called for Obama we were watching the Daily Show election special. I started laughing and crying at the same time, and we grabbed our bottle of champagne, ran to the front porch, and blew the cork off that fucker right into Foothill Boulevard while I screamed, "Hell, yeah! WE DID IT!" The echoes were tremendous.


Halloween picspam under the cut!

Yes, I Can!

Got no writing done over the weekend except for a measly 500 words yesterday. Just no time between all the parties and the housework and all that crap (and the resulting exhaustion that had me lying on my back for most of yesterday afternoon and watching movies on the SciFi Channel). However, the rebound kid has made it to 5050 and is now back on track for a Nano win!

OK, I know it's a long way to the 30th. But at least now I don't have a lot of ground to make up.

Halloween pics will be coming in the next few days. I still need to get them off my camera. The Sarah Palin costume was a hit, though. :-)

The good news is that it has finally started to cool down, and there are actual CLOUDS outside. You know, those white fluffy things that do the all-important job of blocking out the $%#@!! sun. So it's going to feel like Halloween...just in time. This makes me happy.

Another piece of good news is that since we're going back on Standard time over the weekend, I get an extra hour to par-tay at my All Hallows Bash on Saturday night.

The bad news is that Nano also starts on Saturday, so I have to make an attempt at squeezing in 1,667 words between cleaning the house, finishing the decorations, going to the store, and getting my hair done for the the all-important Palin do. Yikes! I don't know whether I should even try, or just attempt to do two days' worth on Sunday (assuming I'm not totally hung over).

Yes, I am the queen of bad timing.

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage/relationship (or if you think you might be someday), and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

Well, I know quite a few of you had a problem with the whole dead Sarah Palin/zombie thing. I hate her like poison, but yeah...I could see your point. However, I don't think anyone will quibble with me including this accessory with the costume:

Adds just the right touch, don't you think? And the horns will match my shoes. :-P

In other news, it looks like someone stole my asshole Mormon neighbors' "Yes on 8" sign. What a shame...not. :-P

So I was working on the playlist for my Halloween party (OK, I know it's three weeks away, but I haven't checked all these songs since I transferred them to my external hard drive and I wanted to make sure everything was still linked correctly), and I started thinking about my costume. OK, I think most of us will agree that Sarah Palin is pretty damn scary. But would I look scary enough in a haunted-house decor with a bunch of people dressed as zombies and vampires and ghosts, oh my?

Then I had a brilliant idea. I should go as assassinated zombie Sarah Palin, with a big ol' latex bullet hole in my forehead and pasty undead makeup.

Is it too much? What do you think?

Sarah Palin costume: I realized I really didn't need to get a suit, since I have a black jacket and skirt that look like a suit even though they're separates. I'm going to wear a red silk camisole top underneath. [livejournal.com profile] mustafear, you'll be glad to know that I acquired these shoes since you said I had to wear red pumps:

I needed a pair that didn't have obscenely high heels, since I'm going to be wearing them at my party and will probably be on my feet for a long time. I really do like this pair -- I'm sure I'll end up wearing them for work, too.

I also scored some reading glasses at Stein Mart that are very Palin-esque. Luckily I was able to get ones that are only a 1x magnification, so I'm hoping I won't be too blind by the end of the evening.

Now all I need is a flag pin and an appointment with my hairstylist, and I should be good to go. ;-)

christinex1001: (Default)
And oh, GOD, do I hope this is the ONLY time I ever have to say that!

Anyway, it seems you are all overwhelmingly in favor of me dressing as Ms. Palin for Halloween. Good thing I already have some rimless glasses (cheap reading glasses...I sure as hell am not going to pay $300+ for the real ones she wears) and sparkly rhinestone American flag pins bookmarked on eBay. Input on suit color? She doesn't seem to be consistent on that -- I've seen her wearing red, pale green, black, gray, tan. So I guess that means whatever I can find for cheap at Ross or Marshall's should be fine. :-P

Instyle.com has added election hairdos to their on-site makeover widget, so here's a taste. I am planning on getting my hair done by a real stylist -- I'm fairly decent at updos, but I think this bouffant is better left to a trained professional.

The only full-face photo I had access to was the one of me in my Slytherin getup. Hence the tie. :-P

A bunch of my friends are trying to talk me into going as Sarah Palin for Halloween. My friend Greg has some squarish no-frames glasses, and he made me try them on and push my hair up into a quasi-beehive, and then talk in my best Fargo-on-crack accent. Everyone freaked and said I had to do it. So what do you think?

OK, I know I stole that title from the website, but in this case it's true. And I promise after this I'll stop, but I just couldn't help myself. I found this image when I was going through the photos from our Halloween event.

Seriously, isn't this about the cutest baby you have ever seen in your entire life?

And anyone who knows me knows I am not that into kids, and am definitely not the type to goo-goo over babies, but this one is so fabulous that now I want one. :-P

...otherwise known as Halloween 'round these parts. ;-)

Very quiet day at work today. I think most of the little kiddies are gearing up for trick-or-treat and probably aren't going to be dropping in to the Teen Center. Just as well, because we close early today (yay!). Ostensibly we'll be shutting our doors at 4:30, but if it's really dead (NPI), then we'll probably close up earlier. I hope so, because I still have a few things to take care of before the munchkins start arriving on my doorstep.

Luckily I was able to finish one last chapter of my Snape/Hermione fic before I get immersed in Nano. I'd really love to get one done some time during the month, but if last year's Nano is any indication, that's probably not going to happen. Oh, well -- at least I warned everyone that it would be awhile before my next update. Here's hoping they don't get bored and wander off. Then again, I did leave that chapter with an evil cliffie. ;-)

I'll probably be hanging out more in my Nano LJ for the next month, so look for me at [profile] badvibrationsla if you want to see how all that is going.

Unpleasant dreams! :-)  

ETA best pumpkin ever!!!:

Well, it's Halloweenie. This dude's a friend of mine who graced the cover of one of my Halloween mixes.

If I'm sort of MIA for the next, I don't know, thirty days, look for me on my writing journal, [profile] sympathy_devil.

All those entries will be f-locked, though, so if you're not on my f-list, I guess it will look like a big...blank?

Oh, and some pics from my Halloween party are
