My friend Neil sent me a link to strange pictures of century-old Halloween costumes but it was this picture that really caught my eye because it’s basically a party game where you put a bunch of children in a room with an open flame and also you put the candle on a low table on top of a rug that’s made out of what appears to be the most easily combustable material ever, which is on top of another rug for some reason because apparently just one uneven rug wouldn’t be unstable enough and then you blind the children with blindfolds that I can only assume are soaked in lighter fluid and napalm. Awesome.
This is what I was thinking of at Hailey’s Halloween Carnival which featured such amazing games as “stand in line to dig for candy in small pile of dusty hay on the sidewalk”. Time’s up when you find a piece of candy or have a severe asthma attack.
Also, this is what Hailey dug out of the hay pile:
And now for my (two-weeks late) update on what I was doing when I wasn’t here:
What you missed on Ill-Advised:
What you missed on my sex column (which is satirical and vaguely safe for work if your boss isn’t a douche-canoe):
What you missed on Good Mom/Bad Mom on the Houston Chronicle:
- Bad-ass girls
- Hailey’s vaguely inappropriate Halloween costume.
- “Pretty”. A reminder to us all.
- She has a point.
What you missed on the internets:
- I convinced my friend Karen to come photograph me for a SexIs Magazine covershoot (out next year). We did the shoot in a studio above a saloon that advertised badger fights and live alligator pits. Then I ended up walking though downtown in a bondage corset. If we didn’t live in rural Texas all of this would probably seem odd. Sneak peak of some behind the scenes shots here.
