Discovery tonight:

Hey, I look kind of good in all-black T-shirts! I should have more of them.

Hi. I'm back from the Halloween party that friends of mine hosted. I turned my Big-Ass Sandwiches T-shirt inside out, pulled off the care tag so there was no white inside of it, grabbed a random piece of hardware (a broken camera my Grandpa Irv used to use) and told people I was going as Adam Savage from Mythbusters. Slightly half-assed but at least I could pull together something costume-like.

I had thoughts on how to "sell" the costume more. Like go into the kitchen, look at the stove top, and say "A watched pot never boils? BUSTED!" People at the party, however, weren't too concerned with that: they were content to hang out and have a good time, so most of us didn't need to perform (except for the local musicians who played in the basement).

This is the most dressed up I've been for Halloween in years. It's like I forgot to do that. Next goal: another easy costume I could manage? Wash from Firefly. (Though an evil part of me would want to go as Wash from Serenity, meaning I'd have an enormous spike sticking into my chest.)
