Doing the splits

In retrospect, it was probably unnecessary for me to do the splits in the garage.

It was already a rager of a party.

But my splits were joined by others’ splits and before you know it, EVERYONE was doing the splits.

And by EVERYONE, I mean all two of us!

LOL

I have no clear recollection of what I drank or how much.

What I DO remember is the nasty little hangover I had the next morning.

I drove myself home, crawled into bed, and slept for the next 4 hours, pretty confident that I was dying.

As it turns out, I didn’t die, my headache went away, and I was left voraciously hungry.

Just so you know, I didn’t IMMEDIATELY remember that I did the splits.

No.

I was walking around wondering why my legs were so sore when the memory came flooding back to me.

Falling over while doing the splits in front of Halloween party guests.

Here’s the pic to prove it. . .

Second Halloween

For Halloween, I was officially a BAT.

A cute black bat wearing dusty playa boots.

There’s always an homage to Burning Man with me.

Then there’s SECOND HALLOWEEN, which – if you’re lucky – you get to celebrate with your burner friends.

It’s a meeting/party of sorts where guests are invited to wear their Halloween costumes.

Again.

Because you know how us burners LOVE to get dressed up and stand out. . .

So instead of being a bat (which was a fucking hot sweatshirt), I opted to be a leopard.

I wore a leopard jumpsuit, a sweater, and leopard ears.

AND I PAINTED MY FACE LIKE A LEOPARD.

Well. . . a cat.

See!

Happy SECOND HALLOWEEN to me!

Bat in the Belfry

The annual Halloween party at my Aunt and Uncle’s in ON!

Woot!

What to wear, what to wear, what to wear?

Of course I have a WHOLE CLOSET full of costumes, but why miss an opportunity to get ONE MORE!?

This year, I am going as a cozy black bat!

That’s right, a frigging cute ass bat.

I’ve got the costume:

I’ve got the tights:

I’ve got the furry leg warmers:

And I’ve got the black boots:

Well, the boots USED TO BE BLACK before the playa got to them.

They’ll need a little clean up.

So what do you think?

Would you mind hosting this little bat in your belfry?

Halloween 2016

It’s almost Halloween!

And Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday.  Even more so than Thanksgiving/Christmas festivities.

This year, my aunt and uncle are throwing their FAMOUS Halloween party in Castro Valley.

I will be going as the Cheshire Cat.

The Cheshire Cat was my new costume for Burning Man 2016 which I never wore because I loaned out my light up purple tutu, forgetting that it was part of that costume.

Oops!  My bad.

So there was no Michelle dressed as the Cheshire Cat at Burning Man.

Pity.

To remedy this, I plan to whoop it up at Uncle D’s and Aunt S’s Halloween party.

There are POWERFUL forces at work in their house – like jello shots and Irish Car Bomb trains.

Check out my costume:

cheshire catI want to add some dramatic makeup but seeing as how I like to eat and drink at parties I’m worried I’ll ruin the makeup – especially a HUGE Cheshire Cat grin!

cheshireIt should be a very fun party, especially since I think my brother Art will be there along with my cousins Jennifer, Travis, and Bella.

Woot!

Halloween

So my oldest son decided at the last minute that he wanted to go to a Halloween party THEREFORE I had to opt out of going to the (adults only) Glowfest and take him to my aunt and uncle’s Halloween party in Castro Valley.

A good mixture of family and friends showed up and everyone was in costume except my son who got shamed into putting on a cape and mask to join in the festivities.

There were drinks galore and I found myself passing out Jello shots halfway through the night.

One for a party guest, one for me.

Boy, did that hit me fast!

I drank Bloody Marys all night long then switched to mudslides.

Eventually, my liver gave out and I had to tap out long enough to take a little snooze on the couch.

The grief I got!!!

My baby brother Art (the great bearded fellow) gave me tons of shit for taking a break.

In about a half an hour I was up and ready to go again.

More drinks.

I even took a shot for Kaitlin (the lion) who was quite loopy at the time.

In the morning she and my cousin Jennifer (Little Red Riding Hood) admitted that they maybe got a little sick the night before.

As Jennifer put it, they can still party like rockstars but they can’t recover like one.

Here’s some photos from the event. Photo credit Xondra Zezza.

Little Bo Peep

OMG! Guess… just guess what my costume is going to be for Halloween….

I’m going to two parties, one in the South Bay and the other in Castro Valley at my aunt and uncle’s house.

Both parties will be off-the-hook fun!

I selected this costume because a friend of mine suggested it.

He said it’ll show up nice against the black lights.

So say hello to my Little Bo Peep!
