Mothereffing Halloween.

28 Oct

green_fairy_by_matusciacNot to sound like a grump, but I positively despise Halloween. I, unlike apparently a lot of people, do not appreciate what has come to be the one day a year is it acceptable for a woman to dress hoey. (If you wanna dress hoey, go ahead and do it! Why wait until October?) As a self-proclaimed creative type, I also loathe the idea of buying a store-bought costume but find myself in a pinch: I am going to a green-themed party. (If I weren’t, pretty sure I’d want to go as Taylor Jacobson: messy blond wig, dark brows, sunglasses, Starbucks cup, droney voice–LOVE.)

ANYWAY, a green party. My friend is going as corn. Adorable. I thought of going as envy, and still think that would sort of rule, but how does one dress as envy? Leading other top contenders right now include Mother Earth (thank you, friend Rema!), peas in a pod (thank you, friend Jenny!), a visitor from the land of Og (am I the only person who remembers this cartoon?)  and the Green Fairy (as in absinthe). So now it’s a mad dash to pull any one of those off in two days. (Have I mentioned that I hate Halloween?) If I can’t do it, then I’m just going to DRINK the absinthe and call it a day.

    Can’t possibly despise Halloween. Between Halloween and Easter best time to have a legit excuse to have loads of chocolate on-hand. The only reason issue I have with Halloween is the fact the candies are small 😦 3 mini kit-kat and smarties make people look oddly at me on the bus while on the way to home. lol. If you don’t like Halloween, you can ship me your goods (chocolates) I be more obliged to take them off of your hands. 🙂

    Hi,
    So i’m afraid this doesn’t quite come under the Halloween category and I feel slightly wierd writing it as a ‘follow up’ but hey, here goes, i’ve got KT also, i’m 20, studying English at uni in Wales with the hopes of doing something along the lines of journalism or something similar. I’d really like to email or get in contact, maybe get a little advice, who knows. Anyway, my email is het8@aber.ac.uk, oh and i read the article you did for Marie Claire…totally get what you’re talking about there! Thanks.
