Happy Halloween!

I'm not dressing up this year, so I can't tell you about my costume. Halloween makes me nervous because I can't do the slutty costume thing so I always feel frumpy and ridiculous. For example, yesterday I got made fun of because I admitted that my favorite costume ever was a nurse of the non-skanky variety. Just because I REALLY enjoyed attending the sorority social in tennis shoes and scrub pants for a change doesn't make me a boring person. I thought I looked cute with my stethoscope! And more importantly, I was comfortable.

Anyway, since I'm not dressing up, I still owe the world one costume. So here's your treat for Halloween 2K7:

Yes, that's me in third grade dressed as Oprah Winfrey. To be completely honest, this wasn't for Halloween but for a book report. But a costume is a costume. Please notice the God-awful hair, pre-braces teeth, my mother's old cat eye glasses with the lanyard, big earrings, big necklace, tacky diamond bow pin on my right shoulder, hideous dress that looks like a curtain with puffy sleeves, tiered skirt hip bow (as if I had hips in third grade), tights and of course - Sam n Libbys.

Please remember that the Sam n Libbys were the only part of my real wardrobe (I think the dress was my sister's - HA!) I am clearly in COSTUME. This is not how I dressed on a daily basis or I'd have beaten myself up.

Y'all are welcome.

PS - The One With The Halloween Party is one of my all-time favorite Friends episodes. Try to watch it if you can.


  1. Did you give cars to everyone in your class?

  2. That is not my dress!!!!

  3. It's not? Whose was it? I know it wasn't mine.

  4. So when was this, 1998?

    And whatever on the costume excuse, you were just dressed up for your recorder recital before parent teacher conferences.

    What a cute little nerd you were:)

  5. 1 - We did have a recorder but i didn't know how to play it
    2 - We also had an accordian, but my granddad gave it to me in junior high. Still not sure why. Not even a foggy clue. Do you know, Jennie?
    3 - Not 1998, try 1991 or 1992. So 6 or 7 years earlier. Wow. That is scary. Only 6 or 7 years after this picture was made (aka, I looked like that) I was in high school. Luckily I had braces in the interim.

  6. oh my gosh. I just laughed out loud.


Oh goody!
