Although this blog is almost exactly 3 months overdue I think it still needs to be written/shown to the public. Even though i'm almost certain the 60-80 hits we get a day are merely our friends who I no doubt bragged about this to for approx a month after halloween so you all know about this. Anyway this is Laura and I on halloween.
If you can't tell from the picture Laura and I went as the World Trade Centre. I even made clay people to jump out the windows. Laura is probs going to be mad about this blog because she wrote her thesis on post 9/11 literature and (rather neurotically) stresses that in 20 years when she is the go-to-girl on 9/11 this shame will surface discrediting her entirely and she will have to move back in with her parents and get a job selling protein shakes over the phone. I think it is worth it.
I walked through Northbridge in this outfit and actually only encountered two groups of people with negative feedback, one group were just overly sensitive indie weiners who said "too soon, dude". Not too soon really, I know it took AIDS a little while longer to get funny but AIDS killed way more people (AIDS can now be funny). I approached the other group in a drunked slur saying "9/11 NEVER FORGET" to which one of them replied "I know, we were there". I said "betcha weren't!" as I skipped off. It is a common myth that all Americans were in New York on the 11th of September 2001.
In conclusion Laura and I are the queens of halloween. This year's halloween entirely depends on who dies this year/disasters. Or maybe i'll finally dress as the hulk as ive always hoped for.
