Getting up-to-speed #1

Halloween 2008 was a blast.

I managed to get my guy to dress up this year. A hastily created anime character costume was the result. I'd show you the outcome, but he's pretty anti-photos-on-the-internets.

I assure you, it looked exactly like this. With more fire.

After a lot of soul-searching, I dressed up as one of these.

Google tells me they're maneki nekos. I've always called them lucky cats.

I also got into the pumpkin carving spirit.

Maybe a little too into it. It took a good 6 hours to carve that thing. Next year, I buy real tools. Did you enjoy the picture of my toilet? The bathroom is the only place in the house with a bright light.

After a few hours of gussying up, the guy and I set out a big bowl of candy and headed out for the West Hollywood Halloween Parade.

There were hundreds of thousands of people at the parade. It was awesometastic.
