    This is why I will only attend a Molly related Halloween party if I have to (aka hitched). Men have only 3 phases for their love of Halloween:

    1-12 : Candy
    13-18 : Play Pranks and Scare People
    19-Death : Women in Slutty Halloween Costumes

    This entire stance of yours goes against what any man wants to see on Halloween. He might try to lie and say its not the truth but deep down it is. Halloween is the one day a year when almost the entire female population dresses how we wish they would and how we visualize them in our heads anyway.

    (all this becomes negated if I have a daughter who will wear the air freshener costume until I die)

      I’m beginning to think the only thing we have in common is that air freshener baby costume.

    • Molly October 13, 2009 at 7:44 pm #

      also, are you saying whenever you fantasize about us, we are dressed as wonder woman?

    “macho, macho, man! i. want to be. a macho man!”

    Goddammit, American Gothic is a painting of a man and his daughter. It is amazing that this came up today, as I was just reading a letter from Grant Wood to a MRS. NELLIE SUDDUTH (distant relation?) on this very subject.

    Also, I liked how you have a costume from Karate Kid and a costume that was in Karate Kid. You may have actually invented a new costume paradigm: costumes of people in costumes. (MIND EXPLODE)

      There’s no such thing as Mrs. Nellie Sudduth, unless she’s married to Mr. Nellie Sudduth. Technically the woman should correctly be referred to as Mrs. David Sudduth. (This is true. I actually looked up her husband’s name.) Though I guess Grant Wood made that mistake, too. Maybe I should just let this go.

      Oh, the hell with it. I’m going to continue to be as ridiculous and obscure as I can; for Halloween I shall go as Prince von Metternich and just let people be confused.

    Costume ideas:
    -To expand on Mr. Monopoly, other people need to go as either the pieces you play as, or even better, giant, people-sized deeds to the properties. Fake monopoly money should be thrown about to everyone.
    -A Legends of the Hidden Temple competitor. But you HAVE to have the pendant of life, or you will always lose
    -A giant traffic cone. You can block off traffic anywhere you go.
    -Kenny Powers, Stevie, Ashley Schaeffer (BMW) and the rest of the Eastbound crew
    -Vic Vinegar and Hugh Honey, real estate agents extraordinaire. This is vastly superior to Green Man, which is everywhere these days.
    -Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, but you have to get into constant duels, that Alexander Ham always loses

    Also, if you go as the Crocodile Hunter, someone HAS to go as a Sting Ray

      Marc Summers. Double Dare.
      Two redehaded boys – Pete and Pete

    My mom is working to find the picture of me as a troll, yes, that’s right…I was a troll for Halloween once upon a time. Maybe that’s why I hate the holiday so much..

    • Marc October 13, 2009 at 10:19 pm #

      I’m puzzled. Being a troll for Halloween would only make me love it more, if possible.

    Oh but there will be plenty of sexy Halloween costumes at this party… I made sure of it. As a matter of fact, I think I sold the idea to my work friends as a “sexy Halloween costume party” just to spite Molly.

    I also want to figure out a way to go as the Public Health Option.

    • Claire October 14, 2009 at 1:48 am #

      you should go as a death panel

  7. Claire October 14, 2009 at 1:45 am #

    I HAVE MY COSTUME PICKED OUT. I am an adorable (originally foreign) children’s TV show/movie character.

    • molly October 14, 2009 at 1:50 am #

      it wouldn’t happen to be #9 WOULD IT

      • Claire October 16, 2009 at 7:30 pm #

        Not anymore! Now it’s Ketchup

        (but it might change back)

  8. Drewpreme October 14, 2009 at 8:56 pm #

    After Halloween can we have a moratorium on this idea of theme parties? Its hard to get laid when you’re dressed up in some get up that you and the 11 other people at the party get. So please consider that ladies.

    Totally cosign Sookie…

    My Halloween costume will be entertainingly offensive.

    • Molly October 14, 2009 at 8:57 pm #


      It’s the best holiday of all.

      • Drewpreme October 14, 2009 at 9:07 pm #

        Actually Thanksgiving is. But you know what I mean, can a brother just get invited out with out having to deviate from the attirical norms? Halloween I can understand, random Friday in March not so much.

        BTW. Thanks for coming back to the blog. It was almost knocked off my bookmarks due to inactivity…

  9. Daniel October 20, 2009 at 8:12 am #

    Also, the Wizard of Oz. Because of the balloon boy. Um, probably no one will get that

    • Marc October 20, 2009 at 11:02 pm #

      No way! Balloon Boy was totally real life UP/Flight of the Navigator

    You can add any of the Zoobles of Zoobilee Zoo fame to this list. Group participation would be ideal, with Mayor Ben instructing his subjects to impart stories of moral importance to other partygoers. That Talkatoo Cockatoo bitch, however, is banned.

  11. Marc October 26, 2009 at 6:36 pm #

    Late addition to the list: Vampire Dick Cheney.

    I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this blog. I really hope to see the same high-grade content by you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my own, personal website now 😉

Go ahead, say it.
