And then...I pounced her.

Can you believe only ONE person guessed us correctly? I can't. We were dead-ringers!

On Halloween Stacey and I dressed up as Calvin and Hobbes and it was fan-freaking-tastic. Calvin and Hobbes are my one true comic-loves so to impersonate Hobbes for a day was a definite wish fulfillment.

We went to Scarlet's for her Halloween party and her roommate made stinking AMAZING pumpkin pie! From REAL pumpkins! I didn't even know people knew how to do that anymore. But I'm ready to learn how because the fresh stuff is fifty times more delicious than any of that poser canned pumpkin. Scarlet also made flower-water which was a new one for me, but actually pretty good. It helped that it looked like blood. It's fun to drink bodily-fluid-looking fluids on Halloween.

Oh, and to make everything perfectly perfect. We also played Calvin Ball and jumped in piles of pretty, yellow, crunchy leaves.
It's okay to be jealous.

This is right before I pelted Stacey with leaves.

I love Halloween. And Calvin and Hobbes. And Stacey for being willing to dress up with me!

A great idea for a great holiday. I guessed Stacey was Dennis the Menace (but only because I didn't see her with you...)

And I know I'm jealous of your leaf-frolicking. And your pouncing! I'm proud of you. Good work, sweetie, good work. ;)

That is so awesome. I would love to get a play-by-play of just how Calvinball went! Score one for awesome costumes.
