My colleague snokrashe and I jointly won the prize for "Nerdiest Costume" at the IP halloween party, for which we dressed as IP lolcats.

exactly how nerdy was it? )

The guy running the contest was actually trying to do it so that the choice for Nerdiest would be made from the pool of people who were runners-up for best costume -- but people in the audience actually called *my name*, demanding that we be added to the running. I feel so proud.

why?

I'm at work, and I just put on my blue wig, and no one has noticed yet -- and for some reason I feel incredibly nervous: hands shaking, pulse racing. Hello, brain, what is this about?

Halloween was good, stayed up so far past my bedtime it was frighteningly close to my usual getting up time... Got many gratifying double-takes on the eyes.

Glad I went to Vanessa's party, even though getting to Ocean Beach took f***ing forever, cause it was really good to see her, and I also had a nice talk with Charis (who I really haven't talked with so much before). Also glad I then succeeded in hooking up with Bunny Foo Foo (AKA babe magnet James), although that also took f***ing forever, and we never did get to the Castro -- but did see many fine costumes streaming down Market St, including a chance encounter w/ Ben & Wanda in their very fine Munsters getups! Yay!

Now moving very slow, but I think that's OK. Things that need to happen this weekend are basically a first pass at packing, some tidying up (because it's so nice to come home to not-complete-chaos), write out info for the catsitters, make sure I have all relevant UK phone numbers in my book, spend lots of time cuddling the cats... yeah, even moving this slow I should be able to manage this.

also...

just put in the contact lenses, per advice to wear them for shorter intervals working up to several hours on halloween -- they are slightly uncomfortable, and obscure vision just a titch, but probably blinking a lot will go with the whole look :)

...white gloves at NY Apparel, and at the Goodwill a block down on Haight St, a purse ).

Also, apropos of nothing, once again [livejournal.com profile] jgcr has correctly predicted my taste in reading as I am completely enthralled by Cryptonomicon.

Picked up the contact lenses today, forgot to get the stuff to rinse them off with. ho hum.

fraught but ultimately successful shopping followed )

Now, only a few accessories needed. Anyone know a good place to get white gloves in size large?

And the tough decision: should my nails and lips be painted black or red?

so glad this week is over. me tired.

babble )

BTW, plans for the trip are coming together well. soon I will actually need to start obsessing about packing :)

So, with the contact lenses basically shaping the central idea of a person hypnotized, I just want the rest to be enough of a costume that people seeing me from a distance will know I'm in costume.

Ideas so far:
50's housewife
stereotype waitress
prom queen
generic goth princess (ho hum)
Lucille Ball
Jackie Kennedy wannabe (circa 1960)
Pippi Longstocking!

Bwa ha ha ha!

fall back plan )
