I brought my camera along this Halloween and -- get this -- actually remembered to USE IT.

This is good for you because it means you get to see the purse genius (not mine) that surfaced this holiday when people put on their awesome costumes.

Anyway, Dave and I put on our costumes and headed over to Ang's before going to a party. I dressed as either a drunk 60s housewife, a Stepford wife or Karen from Will & Grace, depending on who you asked. My costume consisted of a black dress, apron, pearls, a martini glass and a cigarette. I guess I didn't take any pictures of myself, but Ang might have a few..?

UPDATE: Here's one..

Dave, on the other hand, was a New Haircut. It was HILARIOUS because he was so dead-on, but the funniest part was that most people at the party thought he was for real. They would ask, "Who brought that douche?" And I'd be like, "Yeah, seriously."

So Dave was very much in character. All my character required was a bored look and slurred speech, so I guess I was in character too.

Nothing is in my head. It's just the "blood" on the cabinet.

On to more pics:


Blossom is too young for liquor and Cindy McCain only approves of prescription pills.

Stef is from The Birds!

Heroes in a half shell.

Yum, beer in a martini glass. That's what we call klassy.

Looks like Cindy loosened up a bit. God bless America and blueberry vodka.

Oh, how teen pregnancy is hilarious.

Is it time for more jagerbombs already?

Sweeney Todd

Ang was a Trev magnet (since she attracts so many redheads...). And she stole a gun from Indiana Jones.

Our sweet little blogger got a little trigger happy.

Watch out, Indy. This chick means business.

Guy on the right is The Shocker.

What's wrong, Cindy? Out of vodka already?

Fav pic EVER: A Trev asking Angie what her costume is. Oh, irony, I love you.

Saw this when we went to the bathroom. Totally not real. Totally freaky.

Hey, broski, where's your Heineken?



Joe Sixpack on the train.

It's like she JUST realized there were birds there.

Other memorable costumes I saw but didn't get a picture of:
  • Jem
  • Cruella Deville
  • Ace & Gary, the Ambiguously Gay Duo
  • Garth from Wayne's World
  • Girls dressed really slutty

Me, Ang, Dave and Stef called it an early night and headed out to get food around midnight. Dave and I were home by 2 and he was passed out by 2:01. Even after 3 jagerbombs and many Heinekens, he was completely fine in the morning. That always happens. I hate him for it.

Hope you all had a fun Halloween too!!

You guys looked great and I'm kind've wishing there was some Vimeo coverage of our dear New Haircut!! Also, I'm sorry to have missed you guys in my hood- I had a very very rare foray into Lincoln Park but it excites me that you have further fallen for our neighborhood!

Dave's costume is awesome. And look, I love me some Ninja Turtles, but those guys took it a little too far.
