Halloween 2011: All Dressed Up and Too Much Snow

Oh, New England, you old trickster, you!  Just when we thought we were safe from the onslaught of winter weather for another month, along comes a big bad Nor'easter to remind us of how dependent we are on such luxuries as heat and electricity.

That's right, folks.  It started snowing on Saturday afternoon and didn't stop until the wee hours of Sunday morning, which was long enough to dump an astounding TWO FEET of heavy, wet snow on those of us who are crazy enough to live in New Hampshire.  Normally I wouldn't mind an early snow, especially when it hits us on a weekend.  I'm always looking for a good excuse to stay home and do nothing, after all!  But this year we had plaaaaaaans, man, and this storm really cramped our style.

Saturday night was our annual Halloween bash and Mala and I had perfected our costumes and were prepared to see a lot of blank expressions from people who are A) born after 1985 and B) not a fan of the BBC.  Here's what we were going to be:

Haha, gotcha!  
No, Coco beat us to this... whatever it is.  Good thing we saw her costume first so that we didn't wear this costume too -- boy, would THAT have been embarrassing.  ;)

Nah, we were really going to dress up as Patsy and Edina from the hilarious British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous:
Boozy, chain-smoking, fashion-obsessed middle-aged party girls?  Yeah, I think we can pull that off:

We used fake cigarettes, never fear.  Not that it mattered because we had no sooner wriggled into our wigs and stuffed stryrofoam into Mala's beehive when the babysitter called to cancel because she couldn't get her car up the hill to Mala's house.  With no sitter and the snow piling up to our knees outside, we did the only responsible thing; we put the kids to bed, raided the liquor cabinet, and took pictures of ourselves in costumes.

Shut up, we had fun.

Getting into character was a snap!
Joe and Jim were ready to party on! 
Oh well, it was still a fun night.  The next morning we came home to 2 feet of snow and no power in the house, but thankfully our generator (AKA: best purchase ever!) got us back up and running in a jiffy.  We didn't get cable back till this morning, and since I usually try to sneak into my bedroom for some quality time with my pjs and remote control on Sunday afternoons, I really missed my weekly dose of E!.

Thankfully Samsmama informed me that it was 4 hours of the Kardass-ians so I didn't feel like I was missing anything after all.  You all know I hate dem bimbos.

Speaking of the KKKs, did you all hear that Kim's very fake marriage is ending in a very real divorce after only 72 days?  Righteous.  Maybe Kim got tired of craning her neck just to kiss her gigantic husband.  Or maybe Kris just wasn't into water sports.  Who knows?  What I really want to know is if this means that they will return all those ridiculously expensive wedding gifts that they registered for?  Yeah, I don't think so either.



More like this, please!
What else is new?  I've been busily collecting photos for the new book that I'm working on, and things are going very well there. I'm getting some VERY funny photobombs from all over the world.  If any of my BOOBHs want to be included, please let me know!  You can read all about the project here.  Last week I had the privilege of being interviewed by The Huffington Post about the book, so I'm hoping that once that article comes out I'll get even more great pictures!

One last thing before I go -- am I the only one whose blog has become a lightning rod for SPAM?  Good lord, it's constant.  I'm getting 3 or more spammy comments per day, most of which are in Russian.  It's making me miss the Mumbai Escorts!  (Not really)  But then, mixed in with all the spam, I've been getting some truly lovely (but anonymous) comments like these:

Thankfully some bloggers can still write.

Thanks for this article!!

I couldn't agree with you more!

All 'round great blog.

Isn't that nice? I'll take more of those and less of these, please:

This is a simple case of the nut and the bolt. Where the bolt is male.
Here's one. Why is a ship female. It is acting on the water. So male, right.
And might verpa be more like 'willie' connecting to the morel that the harsher erect dick or cock.

AHEM. We clear, spammers? Great.

Have a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everyone!

hmmmmm.... no vlog? I could have swore there was something about you and me, a bed and a video camera? No? Maybe it was all a drunken hallucination...
Stoopid snow! I was very much looking forward to explaining to people what Absolutely Fabulous was and why they're losers for not watching it. Oh well, still good times as always.
And just so I'm sure... water sports = golden showers???

Bev said...

Damn, I actually forgot all about the vlog! It's on my camera anyway, and I can't get it up just yet (TWHS)! Later... assuming it's PG enough for teh interwebz, that is. :)

Yes, Kim's famous sex tape featured Ray-J peeing on her, apparently. I wouldn't know since I've never seen all of it, myself. *cough*

Frank Irwin said...

Oh, man, I didn't realize that y'all didn't get to go out! Those are great shots!

I'm a firm believer in treating others as I would like to have them treat me. Even though I explained this to my girlfriend, she got really upset when I peed on her. I've never seen anyone get so pissed off for being pissed on! Except for my previous girlfriend. And the one before that. And my aunt, but was it my fault that she didn't know how to change a baby boy's diaper? I guess the Golden Rule doesn't apply to the Golden Shower.

Bev said...

Yeah, it was pretty disappointing, Frank, but we rolled with the punches as always.

As for your girlfriends not being into water sports, I think you need to be more specific in your personal ads from now on! What we have here is a failure to communicate (your desire to pee and be peed on)!

I got that last comment on my Latin Lesson talking about dicks, so I thought it might sort of be legit, since he used the term "verpa". Oh well.

And now I only have 40 minutes to kill before I blow the fucking popsicle stand. Stay warm, my friends.

(and by "my friends", I think you know I'm talking solely to you, Bev. *big, obnoxious wink*).

Bev said...

Jenks, I'm always warm! ;)

Kitty Moore said...

I love Ab Fab - there's talk of them reuniting for one last series. Fingers crossed!

Janice said...

Okay, just reading this now - those picture are fantastic! I need to get more creative for myself on Halloween.

Consider it done! Welcome to the OOBH. :)
