And since I'm pretty much the editorial contact person, I get to see how many comments we get on the first issue. Weeeee! So far, the comments have been positive, which makes me happy. And thanks to those of you who contributed, and my fellow awesometastic staff members. Now, if only I could find a full-time job with a salary doing something like this...
Heh. Sunday's "For Better Or For Worse" reminds me of Nick's Halloween costume 3 years ago. From what I hear, coconuts are very irritating to bare skin.
I bought my Halloween costume tonight. I got a red hat, a purple jacket, and some purple pants (kind of sweatpants, but they're capri pants so I won't have to hem them). I think I'll buy a feather boa to go with it, and maybe I'll carry around a handbag. It was interesting shopping. I was trying to go for the eccentric over-50 lady look yet buy something I'll wear more than just one night. It was hard finding the right shade of purple in the right age group of clothing, without spilling over into the pastels of the over-75 age group. I wonder why so many little old ladies wear pastel colors. Maybe it matches their hair.
I don't remember who I was telling in the past couple days that I didn't have purple pants, but now I do. Hooray! I don't think my outfit really matches, but that's ok. It will be dark outside, and I'm short enough to get away with trick-or-treating. I'll just avoid the houses with people who know who I am but don't see me on a regular basis, so they won't ask "Wait a minute... aren't you in your twenties now?" I think I'll just go visit a few houses, where the people know me well enough to appreciate my eccentricity. Or where they don't know me at all.
At the tea party on Sunday, I was so excited about wearing my garb (with ridiculously huge sleeves) and fairy wings that I was skipping and twirling around like a 3-year-old. I'm such a child it's funny.
