I have another costume plan this year but just putting this here for anyone who hasn’t already decided what to be. Stevie for Halloween is comfortable, potentially cheap (any thrift store will have SOME kind of shawl/ and gauzy bell-sleeved garment for you), and so, so satisfying. Just be careful around candles.
A sexy caterpillar used her BlackBerry to take this photo of me and Lori being (in a very low-key way) Betty and Veronica. Speaking of comic book costumes, I met a guy at this party who was planning to dress up as Emma Frost, the White Queen of the Hellfire Club, on the following night. I want to see photos of this!!
Kimya Dawson tells the story of the time she totally freaked out Mariah Carey on the Moth podcast. This story was recorded back in 2002.
This is a perfect story! One of my favorite parts is when Kimya clarifies that she did not work in the haunted house so much as she worked in the haunted parking lot behind the haunted house.
