You know you're in trouble when ....

your halloween costume for work takes little effort because you already look like that person. I'm going as Ozzy Osborne. Maybe not the most ideal look for a middle-aged lady but hey, it's a chance to wear my black leather blazer and funky sunglasses. Spent am hour making a giant tin foil crucifix - makes me look like a cross between Ozzy and that rapper who wears a clock around his neck. What worries me is that some people may not realize I'm in costume ....
I'm really not much of a Halloween person. There's is something about it I really don't like but that's not really surprising when you consider Easter is my favorite holiday. Hope and new beginnings interest me far more than death and evil. But saying that, there is one aspect that I really like - the treats. It's a great time to pick up small snack sizes of chocolate, chips, crackers and so forth. Guess who's in the stores picking up her favorites half price on November 1st? Yep. I live in hope there will bags of mini Toblerones left in the 75 per cent off bins - I am a dreamer.
Right now I'm sitting here eating bats and skulls - trying to get in to Ozzy mode, eh? Actually they're small creamy candies, like candy corn. They're only out at this time of year and I only eat them at this time of year - wouldn't seem right at any other time. It also keeps me away from the peanut butter cups and chips reserved for the trick or treaters.
For a while, any way ....

  1. If you actually find mini-Tobleronis, you will share them with me, won't you?
