What’s all this then?
Well, it’s that time of year again – when a woman’s fancy turns to coming up with a Hallowe’en costume. I find this so stressful!
Usually I come up with all sorts of great (to me) ideas and then end up dressing as (a) a gypsy; or (b) an old European guy like the one on the italian beer poster:
These were all fine and dandy the first nine times or so, but starting to get a bit boring. And – the friends are starting to think that I lack imagination. Can’t have that!
(On that topic, has anyone ever dressed as a knitting UFO for Hallowe’en? I have. The photos have been burned in someone’s fireplace way back when… I thought it was a good idea at the time – that was the year in uni that I fell into a vat of Purple Jesus at the beginning of September and emerged about a week before the December finals. But, yet again, I digress…).
So: this year I’m thinking of dressing as a Solid Gold Dancer!!
I realise I’m dating myself, but hey…
An alternative: I could pretend to be the unlucky kid at Greek school (I’m sure every hyphenated-canadian kid has been haunted by bad, bad memories of “heritage” classes…)
…or I could pretend to be a member the group I was denied access to because I had to go to Greek School instead:
the group to which every girl but me belonged
I’m told well after the fact that I really didn’t miss all that much. However, it was horrible at the time 😉
I’d better go find that fedora hat from wherever I dumped it last year, I guess!
PS. In knitting news: still hacking away on the Tuscany, and have submitted my first ever official pattern to an on-line mag! I don’t think this will get me anywhere, but why not wish me luck anyway! 😉
