In Your Satin Tights, Fighting for Your Rights

Here are two of my Halloween costumes of yore. Last year I made a last minute decision to go out on Halloween and was stuck with the default girl Halloween costume - the witch.

Today I called the lender to ask about the FHA inspection/appraisal. He said it did happen on Monday, but it usually took a couple of days to get the info. Because he's still kissing my ass for screwing things up last week, he told me he'd call the guy and see if he could get some basic info right away. Sadly, the guy didn't answer his phone. The lender guy said that he'd let me know what was going on as soon as the guy got back to him. Needless to say, I'll call him again on Wednesday if he doesn't call me first.

The realtors told me they thought the loan was supposed to be okay'ed by October 30th. God, I hope so. I just want to know one way or the other so I can deal with it. I guess Halloween could be interesting. I'll either be sad that I didn't get what I wanted or super excited and ready to celebrate.

Two years ago I went as a zombie Catholic school girl. unfortunately, I couldn't find the picture that showed my awesome slit throat scar. Damn.

Which leads me to my next thing - my Halloween costume. My friend K. keeps telling me I should go as a superhero. My excuse the last few years is that I would only do it if I were in excellent shape. This year I finally feel like I could get away with wearing tights with superhero undies over them...Well, maybe if I wore a REALLY long cape anyway. I'm kicking around the idea of being Wonder Woman and making the special bracelets and everything. I just don't know where the hell I'll find an invisible jet, is all. My lame-out option is a flapper - which is kind of the other default girl Halloween costume. It looks like even my Halloween costume will depend on whether I get that house. I doubt I'll want to be a morose Wonder Woman. Wait. Does anyone know if Wonder Woman had a Goth twin sister at all?

I like the idea of a Goth Wonder Woe-man. I love zombie costumes. You can have so much fun making them up. Zombie Wonder Woman would work too.

Churlita,
I think you'd make a great Flapper, but an AWESOME WW.
Me? Grandpa from the Munsters.

How would anyone go about finding an an invisible jet? But good luck, the Wonder Woman costume sounds perfect!

Sending you tons of good luck vibes that you get the best news about the house!

I have yet to get a costume. I've got a function I have to do for work on Monday and be dressed up. Thus, here I come racks of crappy costumes.

I think I'm going to go with angel and see if I get struck dead.

You've just hit on an excellent costume.
Re; invisible jet - have it fly over DC. I'm sure it would be found.

You'd make an amazing Wonder Woman...but I think a flapper would be really cute too :-)

I think you should plan on going as a Home Owner.

Ananda,

Wonder Woe-man is awesome!

Rel,

Grandpa from the Munsters? You better put up some pics of that.

Tara,

As always, thanks for the vibes. I will take them whenever I can get them.

Susan,

If I tried to be an angel, my skin would probably burn off.

Pamela,

Ha ha ha. That's hilarious.

LauraB.,

I do too. There so many excellent parts to it.

Booda Baby,

I hope I can. That would be my favorite costume.

I've got a week to come up with a costume-- thinking about Jim Jones-- bad wig with "pork chop" sideburns, aviator sunglasses, and a pitcher of purple Kool-Aid.
