I mentioned this a couple of years ago, but now I have the photographic proof. Actually I always had the proof, though I wasn't aware of it. Here we are in our favorite halloween costume. We used to love strolling Santa Monica Blvd on Halloween when everyone and their sister is out showing off their costume or gawking at the costumed ones. Every time we'd run into other "nerds", we would totally geek out on each other. We wore these costumes to work one year, replete with toilet paper sticking out the back of our pants. It was cool too because the beanies' propellers spun every time we walked somewhere, which, working in a restaurant, was pretty constant. There is no outdoor gathering in costume tradition in this city and we haven't been to any costume parties since we moved here. Next time we are though, we'll be down at the thriftstore getting too-short plaid green pants et al.
This makes me wonder if etc and et al mean the same thing. Maybe I'm using it wrong. Feel free to lambaste and mock, it is campaign season after all.
