One last photo from Halloween and I swear I am finished. This is for all the Xena:Warrior Princess and other Amazon lovers out there.

So...it was Trick-or-Treat, or Beggar's Night, whichever you prefer. I sat outside and carved two pumpkins so I wouldn't be interrupted by the furry-fivesome. A lot of kids saw me as they were walking home from their state-funded educations and asked about our decorations, promising they would return after dark. THAT! could be frightening.

Mrs CB came home and carved her pumpkin so we had a total of three ready to go. I sorted through the candy (Whoppers and Milk Duds were hidden) and made sure the crappy stuff (Tootsie Rolls?!) were given out first. By the time we were done, I had stashed two handfuls of "select" treats in my jeans pocket.

We dressed up, but just barely. Mrs CB wore black and added a cop hat, badge and a play gun. I wore a bright orange NYC Jail t-shirt (don't ask) and HANDCUFFS!! I did not know we had handcuffs! Someone's been holding out on me...

We had a lot of kids come by with some great costumes, but half of them didn't even try to dress up. Steven, the 9-yr old that lives 2 houses away came dressed as a girl...too fucking funny. And just like last year, he tried to steal my Silly String. I sprayed him in the head. It was glow-in-the-dark. Too cool. Scariest costume seen? Had to have been the 14 yr old girl dressed a slutty SCOTTISH teen witch complete with Casey Novak go-go boots and a tartan plaid trim on her vinyl witch costume...and was it EVER short.

Have to make my neck tie and go buy some Granny Panties to wear with my costume tomorrow. And Mrs CB wants home-made meatballs...wonder what she's offering in return ;)

Oh yeah! The Burning Bush has a real name, but I think we will continue to call her Wilma. She was our first visitor. And I am sure that all of that candy will be eaten by her 17-month old daughter. Right!

I lost my voice the other day. One too many Billy Bob impressions, I guess. It started to come back this morning, much to the chagrin of my wife and co-workers. I LOVE using Jack Daniels as a medicinal aid.

We are prepared for tomorrow’s onslaught of Trick-or-Treaters. The pumpkin lights are lining the sidewalk and I put up the temporary “Crime-Scene Tape” fence to keep the little shits from trampling through our yard. Yes. I HAVE become that bitchy woman on the corner. We picked up some extra candy for the neighborhood kids…right. Whoppers are mine! I called them. I still need to carve three pumpkins tomorrow and one on Friday. Glad I am off the rest of the week. And just what kind of wine does one drink when handing out treats? Vampire brand Pinot Noir from Transylvania, of course.

The costumes for the party Friday night are a go! (This will be the fifth anniversary of when the Mrs. and I met…and at the same party. I was dressed as Gabrielle from X:WP…wearing my “I slept with Xena” t-shirt.) Mrs. CB shortened my skirt (anyone wanting a pic needs to send a SASE). I just need to make a tie thingy and an emblem for the vest…oh, and practice my “fingers in the pits” thing. Oh…and straighten my hair. Like that will happen. My icon…self portrait. Really!

And it appears that I will be available to keep all my harem bitches warm during the evenings after all. The second shift position was written incorrectly (they forgot to add “Senior” to “Tech”) and I would have had to take a 2 grade pay scale cut. I don’t think so, fuckyouverymuch. Goodbye evenings, hello again, 4:00 am wake up calls. Mrs. CB was happy… I’ll be home every night to cook and we got OSU Women B-ball season tix. They are the coaches’ pick to win the Big Ten this year. Go Bucks!

The research on the essay is complete. I watched ALL the A/O eps for potential HoYay! It was a difficult task, but I was willing to make that kind of sacrifice for you, my friends. It is due to be posted Nov. 17th. I’ll keep everyone updated, because I know how much this means to you.

Guess I’ll watch the game tonight. Will I incur the wrath of [livejournal.com profile] theholyinnocent if I say I hope the Red Sox take it tonight so it will be fucking over with? Of course, it WOULD be ironic to see the Cards come back and win it all. Damn…I’m torn. Wrath or Irony? Hmmmmmm…..



Okay...because I am bored, try this. You need to move the mouse without touching the black areas: http://terminal-insanity.com/z1g/steadyhand.swf
Have fun!

There is a beautiful blue October sky out today, so Mrs CB and I made the most of it. She finished cleaning up the gardens and planted the last of the tulip bulbs, including the 18 she got at poker last night (again, I was the big winnah!!). Since it was warm enough to wear shorts out (which had been my excuse for procrastinating), I decided to decorate for Halloween. I made 7 new tombstones and put them around the house. I admit, I got a little more political than normal with "RIP Sybil Wrights", "RIP N.O.Scents", and "RIP Big O. Tree". Had some fun as well with "Ima B. Otch" and a couple others. I put the Jack-O-Lantern lights along the sidewalk that leads to the porch and got out the 7' Funky Frankenstein monster. We got the last of my MKG costume and the candy to hand out to the little bastards darlings that will be gracing the neighborhood Thurs night. Blow Pops for the cool costumes, orange-flavored toostie rolls for the lame ones.

Thought I would include some pics from my last Halloween Party simply because I am putting off working on another project. Enjoy!

Just when I start to feel better from that flu thing I had a month ago, I get hit with a cold. I feel a bit like Michael Corleone from "Godfather III". I just can't stay away.

So my throat is all scratchy and my ears itch. And my voice, husky enough naturally, has become quite Sling Blade like. Every time I have to clear my throat, the words of Karl Childers run through my febrile mind. And of course, it makes Mrs CB laugh.

Mrs CB: What do you want for dinner
Me: (clears throat) Some a dem french-fried taters be awful nice mmmmmhmmmmmm
Mrs CB: Oh god. Not again with the Sling Blade.
Me: How bout some a dat potted meat too, if ya got any extry mmmmmhmmmmmm
Mrs. CB: (stares at me with mock concern and decides to see if I still have a fever)
Me: Some folks calls it a kaiser knife mmmmhmmmmmm, I calls it a nanner knife on a counts it's shaped like a nanner. mmmmmhmmmmmmm (proceeds to chase Mrs CB throughout the house)

Oh fun times. My best friend and I got drink once and did a conversation between Marge from Fargo, The Rain Man, Karl Childers and Ren & Stimpy. Oh sweet bachelor days...

It's Thursday...I have three days off. I have to start carving pumpkins. The centerpiece for the party next week will be a Martha Stewart pumpkin in a small cage. (I think she got a raw deal in light of the Enron boys, but prisoners are fair game to me). I need to find a skirt(Ick!!) for my costume. I am going as Mary Katherine Gallagher (SNL/Superstar). Mrs CB, refusing to go as a tree for me to make out with, is going as my nun bitch. If I can't find my costume, then I'll go as "Stuart" from madTV. I like to do his voice...especially at work. I don't wanna say. I need to make my tombstones tomorrow as well so I can get them painted. Mmmmmm....jigsaw love!!

Oh...I fixed the curtain rod snafu from last weekend. I can hear the sighs of relief. Thanks.

So...NL, I guess I'll go with St. Louis. I don't think I can ever get over the hideous uniforms the Astros wore when I was growing up. Ever!

I love Halloween! We went out today and got half of our "couples" costume. I am going as Mary Catherine Gallagher from SNL and Mrs. CB. is going as a nun...Superstar indeed!

We also picked up some carving stuff for the five big ass pumpkins I bought on Friday. Yes my friends, I am a closet carver. No contest entries...yet, but maybe in a few more years. Check out this link:
http://www.pumpkinglow.com/Patterns3.htm
be sure to scroll down and check out the bonus patterns.

I did Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster last year...this year, it's all about Martha Stewart in jail. I am carving the MS pattern and then we are sticking the pumpkin in a small cage. Maybe this is as artsy as I'll ever get.
