October 30 08

i’m trying to stay focused today and not think about the candy. because i took a vow. to NOT eat any candy from October 3rd until a week after Halloween.

but, sadly, i can think of nothing else.

oh, mini twix. (because really, anything mini, is AWESOME)

oh, Reese Cups.

oh, M&Ms.

oh, snickers.

oh, mars bars.

oh, candy corn. mmm..candy corn.

i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong.

let’s focus on the costumes, shall we?

(Abby Cadabby)

(Iron Man)

(Sharpay. from high school musical. from the “bop to the top” scene. Sharpay – and not Gabriella – is Emily’s favorite character. of course. because Emily is a little bit of a bitch. hahah)

which, i can assure you, is a step up from last year. when i didn’t even get them costumes. i know, MOTHER OF THE YEAR.

…this is what they wore for Halloween 2006:

and this is what they worse for Halloween 2007:

AWESOME. (and yes, they DID collect their candy in  [insert company name here] bags because i’m all about the class, people!)

so, this year i decided it was high time i actually, you know, went out and bought them something…especially since i’m not clever, like him. or talented, like her.

i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong.

are you dressing up? last year i went Ali circa 2006. it was brilliant. everyone was all “oh, Ali, your outfit is SOOOO last year.” the only better costume i had was that time i went as a Ventian Blind – - – i wore a shirt that said “Venice”, wore sunglasses and carried a cane.

nothing? *crickets* nothing?

i was thinking maybe of this…which may just be this year’s very BEST Halloween costume:

oh, Cindy Crawford, i LOVE you. wanna make out?

i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong i will be strong.

**bonus points if you know the reference. no? okay…how about now? “Hey, look at me! I only got one arm, and I’m crazy! Now give me some candy, or I’ll grab you with my crazy one-arm!” no? i’m the only one who remembers this? please tell me i’m not…and it’s not just the lack of candy that’s gone straight to my head?

  1. Id no one else remembers Adam Sandler, we’re in trouble.

  2. Hey, look at this! I have a plant coming out of my arm! Isn’t that bizarre! I am crazy, I am deformed, and I am hungry! Now, give me some candy! Fork it over!


    Comment by MetroDad on October 30, 2008
  3. The week after? Are you nuts? Don’t you implement the standard parental checking all the candy for safety? Where you pick out your favorites and eat them because they are “suspect” and need to be checked?

    Get with the program!


    Comment by Hockeyman on October 30, 2008
  4. Adam Sandler- oh how I loved when he did that shtick.
    Me and the hubster are going as Lucy and Desi. Very exciting. My wig cap better get here today, or my giant head wont be able to fit the wig.

  5. I was going to not drink any beer between October 1st and my birthday in November…but that didn’t last too long (burp).

    My costume this year will be “Disgruntled Architect”! Neat, no?

    Oh, dammit, I was a disgruntled architect last year (and the year before and the year…)

    Sigh. Maybe I’ll just go as a 2 headed McCain-Palin monster AAAIIIEEEE!!!

  6. I dressed up last year, but apparently hairy clowns aren’t so much funny as they are scary.

    Also? I prefer Hanukkah Harry… “On Moische! On Herschel! On Schlomo!”

  7. I haven’t even bought candy yet and Trick or Treat is tonight. I know me. It’s just a best I wait until the last minute. Maybe I’ll just give out canned goods.

    I haven’t bought new costumes for the boys in a long time. In fact, I hand them down. The only way I can tell the difference in them in pictures from the various years is that one of them is taller and finally wearing a new costume. Maybe I’ll dress my youngest up tonight as one of those dang teenagers who just grabs a grocery bag and goes out grubbing for candy. That kid is getting the canned goods for sure!

  8. I resolved to buy my candy on October 31st this year. Not like usual when I buy it three weeks prior and then have to go buy more a week later and still more a week after that and then, finally, more on October 31st.

    You know the Hannukah song by heart too, don’t you.

  9. I haven’t bought my candy yet because I know I’ll eat it all. LOL

    Adam Sandler rocks! I miss that funny guy. Now that he has a family and stuff, he’s just not as crazy as he was when he was a bachelor.

  12. You can wait a WEEK? I eat the candy while we’re driving the kids home (we have to go into town to trick-or-treat).

    Nope – not dressing up. Unless you count dressing as a Cold Canadian In A Ski Jacket a costume :)

  13. OK, what exactly is Em for Halloween?

    I’m the same with candy–can’t keep it away! I refuse to buy Halloween candy this year, but as we live in a very residential area with lots of kids, I fear we may be flooded with trick-o-treaters. I may just shut off the lights and close the curtains and be that couple.

  15. Harrison Ford is a quarter Jewish. Not too shabby.

    What? Wrong reference?


    Comment by Zombie Daddy on October 30, 2008
  16. I gave up candy for Lent once. And then at 12:01 AM on Easter morning I ate like 3 bags of jelly beans and some Snickers eggs. I was SO sick.

    I have to do candy in moderation or I go crazy.

    You only have a few more days!

  20. Still my favorite SNL moment ever! How could anyone not remember that?

    This year I have a lion and a caveman. I tried really hard to get him to go for the Geico style caveman but I lost that battle.

    And for the record, I laughed out loud at the Venetian blind. But I’m cheesy and lame like that. heh :P

  21. We don’t do Halloween so don’t bring the kids here. Ha!

    Looks like Amy Winehouse!

    Those chocolates look yummy!

  32. DUDE – hang in there. This is what I do and it works – when ever I think I am going to die if I don’t have some candy, I take a drink. Yes, it has turned into my very own drinking game.

Someplace within the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do well to fill in all those gaps. When you can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be amazed.
