Welcome to Memory Lane Friday! This is a weekly blog carnival to allow you to blog about your memories and link up. All are welcome, and this week the topic is Halloween.
I already blogged about some of my childhood Halloweens, so now I'll share some of the more recent (well, sort of) with you. When I was a freshman in college, we decorated our dorm room for Halloween. Note that this was post psychotic roomie getting the boot ;-)
Local kids came trick or treating through the dorms and we handed out treats. I dressed as a witch.
One of the best things about going to school in Texas was the proximity to Austin around Halloween. Austin hosts the largest Halloween street party, on 6th Street (of course).
I dressed as a cat (complete with sparkle pants found at Goodwill).
Paul was a caveman. Someone gave him the femur of a cow to go with his caveman costume, but it got confiscated by the police. They said it was a 'weapon'. Paul isn't the type to go bludgeoning random people with a cow femur, but I guess you can never be to careful, lol.
And here is a picture from 8 or 9 years ago. I had just finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha and spent a lot of time in Washington D.C. tracking down a kimono. My friend Beth and I were working up in Arlington at the time, so we walked from our hotel to the Clarendon Ballroom, where my friend Sara was working. It was a much longer walk than we had anticipated (and Beth had on crazy heels so she ended up taking them off and walking barefoot in the cold), but we had a fun time.
