With less than a week to go, I think it’s safe to say that Yes, Virginia, I have once again bitten off more than I can chew when it comes to this whole Halloween costume thing. I’m too cheap to buy fancy costumes, you see, so I’m always all “Sure, I can make that!”
Except that I can’t. Or I can, but it ends up involving something like… oh, I don’t know… sewing fifty miniature chicks onto my son’s clothing. Or—not that I’m naming anything specific, like maybe THIS WEEKEND—spending half a day modifying a skirt for my daughter using scissors, lace, stitch witchery, and colorful language.
And then going out to Target for fairy wings and devil wings, and realizing I have absolutely no clue as to how to merge the two without threatening the structural integrity of the item to be worn. And let’s not even mention the fact that the devil wings? Are from a DOG COSTUME.
Yep. You totally wish I was YOUR mom.
Anyway, while I continue to
struggle and drink heavily work on a few projects here, as well as maybe do some of that “work” thing that I am apparently contracted to do in return for those many buckets of money I like so much, my Monday is a little more packed than usual. Go figure.
But there’s good news! I recently chatted with the lovely Laurie about life, the universe, and blogging while divorced. You can listen to our interview over at DivorcingDaze, but only if you promise not to tell me how dumb my voice sounds. (Everyone hates the way their voice sounds when they hear it played back, right?)
Laurie had to do a little bit of editing to our chat, and I’m disappointed that she cut out the part where I admit to being Trig Palin’s biological mother, but I hope you’ll enjoy it, anyway. (It was really juicy, too. I mean, I have no uterus! Damn kid grew in my pancreas, y’all!)
Tomorrow I plan to unglue my fingers and get back on track. Probably.
