It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Masquerade! or FASHION LEPER

Er . . . or thereabouts. I shouldn't be invited to a formal function. I end up wearing a psycho Blues Brothers "half head" and a suede green jacket, and then circling around the walls aimlessly like a fly trying to find an exit to an open window.
There were some very stunning ensembles, Darth Maul face-paint included, so I felt outdone artistically which is something I loathe, since art is all I'm good at anyway. Kudos to Kyle on being so inventive (a black and red feather "headress" with black angel wings and matching shirt, tie, and slacks!) and props to the rest for looking so posh. Brenda was a butterfly fairy? Or at least she painted what looked to be a butterfly trimmed w/ bagettes on her face, and wore a baby blue evening gown w/ sheer sleeves. Sound like a fashion show? It was! I made a better wallflower with what Sam terms my "Utah" stylings, and was very comfortable finding a plush armchair away from the more fashionable.
So, I suppose my greatest lament is that I'm not really "me" around anyone. Er, or not that I know of . . . So I'm not really comfy unless I'm all by my lonesome.
Anyway, it was fun, and I got to pester Sam for HOURS on end afterward. (I'm sorry!) It was a good time chatting/discussing/arguing . . . :) (I'm sorry!) So anyway, I've got too much to do, and little motivation to do it.
. . . Au revoir

  1. I loveeeeeee Hallowe'en!! I'm so excited! :D

    Also, I think the primary reason why you are not really 'yourself' infront of people is because you're highly self-critical and analytical. Next time you're out at a party, stop listening to those voices in your head. Shut your mind and make an effort to have a good time!

  4. Haha, actually, when I first wanted one I didn't know they had anything to do with dating, but rather being able to hang out over in good ol' #103... I just think it's funny and I wanted one for the heck of it. Sorry to disappoint y'all. Did you have your eye on someone in particular, Liz?

  5. I don't think I really thought all of the parameters out; it's just that I'm goofy incarnate---this is one of many projects that are my broodlings.
