Old Haunts and Haughty Homes

I promise I am not a bad person. I'm just a slightly overwhelmed person. I truly regret any discomfort on your part due to blogging-related neglect.

The Whole Posse
On Friday, many awesome people accompanied me to Bobby Mackey's which is just outside of Covington, KY. It is apparently haunted and for $5, the proprietors will give you a little tour of the basement. They tell me a gentleman who makes appearances on a ghost hunting TV program was accosted by spirits on camera down there but the most frightening moment for me involved dumb redneck boys.

I was Twiggy. Many many thanks to my Momma who plied my makeup.

How to dress for comfort: Step 1, procure an awesome soft slip from an amazing friend. Step 2, wear a fuzzy sweater over it. Step 3, don't bother putting on pants.

I finally found a use for my union suit! It's the world's most comfortable Halloween costume! I am a raging hillbilly (quite a stretch... har) and Greg was an Ambien zombie.

I was in Columbus for the holiday so my Grego and I went to the Short North area for the last few minutes of the High Ball. The show had descended into chaos by the time we got there but that was fine by me. I saw too many brilliant costumes to list. I saw a dog dressed as a chicken. Genius.

That is a bona-fide Rabbit Hash brand corn cob pipe. Monica, a dear friend who I met through my old job, bought it for me.
