Halloween preparations

middle


My children are preparing for Halloween.

Oldest is going to a party. He has a sheet and a plastic crown of thorns. The beard and hair are real.

Youngest is being a 'goth vampire,' of his own design. I have ordered him special fangs, black spray hair dye and gauntlets. He's going to two parties.

And Middle?

He's doing some essential reading.

Wearing his Slusho tee shirt.

I'm hoping that the Slusho tee shirt isn't going to work out like that tee shirt of Youngest's...

hugging Youngest

which someone had to tell me WAS PORN MUSIC.

It's not porn music! (is it? am I that un-hip? Probably.)

But really, it's the 'walking' music of the blaxploitation movies - think Shaft - when the badass mofo gets ready to kick some honky A** for smackin' on his BI***!

Coincidentally, it's also the tune I hum to myself when walk to lunch, but that's a post for another day.

performed by wah-wah guitars everywhere.

Great costumes! (sigh) We're still stuck in dinosaur land here. But it was Invisible Ninja land last week, so I suppose things are looking up...

I only share BECAUSE I CARE, DAMMIT.
Also, what a friend we have in Google!

(Slusho is okay, I think that one only refers to drunketyness. As in, "Wow, Poppy sure got slushoed at the dinner party last night, didn't she?")

TOTALLY porn music. Maybe the other too, but in pop culture? Totally.
Porn music? For real?

Now I'm going to have to do some research, all in the name of educating myself and my fellow bloggers.

Porn music, yes. For real. Absolutely.

Circa 1970s cheezy porn music, to be exact, which explains montanajen's association with blaxploitation soundtracks from the same era.

But when someone says, "Bow chicka bow wow," they are invariably referring to the classic porn soundtracks.

So be careful about singing it out loud, montanajen. People may get the completely wrong idea about your lunch plans, and assume you're off for a nooner.

I'm just sitting here giggling... that's all I'm sayin!

Clearly, you are not watching enough porn. Or you would know these things.

that zombie survival guide is hilarious. it takes itself very seriously, with chapters on which weapons are best (the crowbar), what clothing is best (form fitting) up to "true" zombie survival stories. i bought that book for my husband on valentine's day 3 years ago, he loves it.

Having daughters that live in the city has kept me (somewhat) with it. I am still surprised by the new lingo.
Imagine Momo's reaction when I told her Miss Jessica thought Pop was "the shit."

Well, clearly I am not living in the US so I could be excused for not knowing this too, but...I am giggling as well here...too funny.
Is it Halloween already??? People are still swimming here...
And do I see some glass pebbles on your mantle or are my eyes seeing ghosts.
