There was 1992.

Only this tough mean popular girl at work asked me if I was dressed up as this:

What's everyone dressing up as this year? I just ordered the kids costumes last night. Yes, I order. I am so not a DIYer. Z is going to be a mermaid and Rock is going as Batman. We are not as conceptual as you are in the Halloween department.

Can't wait for your party. Did you see that Krit is coming? Yay!

V you make me laugh... that had to be awful. Sounds just like something that would happen to me. I got your email but won't be near Austin for Halloween-- I wish. Thanks for thinking of me though. Have you heard where blogHer will be held next year yet?
