From Keiko Lynn

halloween has always been one of my less favorite holidays. i'm sure it has something to do with growing up in Nebraska, where it could be 70 degrees or it could be blizzarding and you were expected to want to go drag your parents out into it.

this year i have no good ideas for a costume and i don't really feel like hunting one down. i bought a costume when i was a freshman in college (slutty referee), and i think that will be the last time i do it. i did inadvisable things that night.

last year i was little red riding hood; and i'll just go ahead and say it, i was cute. but i just don't have the same drive this year to look adorable. for the mentoring halloween party, my mentee and i are going as a pirate (me) and treasure. we're basically drowning her in mardi gras beads and a crown and what not.

it's an opportunity to be someone/something else. maybe i'm just cool being me. we'll see if i get out of my holiday funk here in the next week or so.
