Hallowe’en’s Greatest Hits

We are hiding from Hallowe’en this year … it’s partly because of the understandable death of the Harrington Hallowe’en Party, partly because Shannen isn’t in a position to partake in festivities as much as she has been in the past, and partly because “the best costume idea EVER!” didn’t hit me in September.

One of the problems is that the bar for costumes continues to get raised. Michelle always decides on her fab costume in February or so, and has it done in late August or early September. Group costumes have been well done the past few years, with DC comics a few years ago, and the Top Gun crew last year. And I personally peaked 2 years ago with my rendition of Richie Tenenbaum. I should have just quit then.

Some Hallowe’en bullets:

  • Gary and Michelle started dating at a Hallowe’en pub in university. Man, Gary’s Spidey costume was sweet!
  • You shouldn’t use toothpaste to spike your hair. It’s gross. I did it in my early teenage years. I forget what the costume was.
  • I’d love to dress the cats up like dogs, and the dog like cats.
  • Shannen and Jen aren’t fond of cabdrivers on Hallowe’en. They can be downright inconsiderate.
  • Jon and I dressed up as Betty and Veronica one year. Pictures exist, but I’m glad I don’t have any of them.

Gary - Dan, I notice that you spell Halloween with an apostraphe in between the 2 e’s. Is this considered proper grammer? If so, I need you to prove it to me somehow. If not, I must insist that you stop its usage.

dan - Future questions should be posed first to wikipedia, second to yahoo answers, and third in comments to the blog ; )

Jen - just another halloween bullet to add to the list..

* its been 2 years to the day that I left for the big trek out West!

Somehow it seems longer than that. And I think its because of my job. I feel like I’ve been at this for at least 10 years.

Jessie - Don’t worry, the Harrington Halloween Party isn’t dead – it’s just resting. We just needed a year off, and thought it’d be wise to take a breather before anyone died, was arrested, or seriously injured. And what do you know? The night we would have had our party: torrential downpour. Now THAT would’ve sucked.

There will be plenty of opportunity for masked mayhem in the future! Promise.

Sonja - Egg whites are the best way to spike hair.
