Fall in full

Fall in Full
Woke up this morning to the first frost of the year...burrr! Maybe now the mosquitoes will all be dead and I can enjoy my evening cup of tea (with Splenda) and the outdoors without donating a pint o'blood. What to be for Halloween? Excellent question...a packet of Splenda? A box of Splenda? Just something that doesn't require a tremendous amount of sewing and will serve as blatant advertising for my favorite sweetener. Speaking of sweet, I have a stylish new pair of "skinny" jeans...I bent under the peer pressure and bought a pair of the new jeans. I just can't bear the site of them. I am all for fashion forward, but I lived through the 80's and firmly believe it was a sad time in fashion. So I have these "sweet" new jeans and they are just hanging in the closet staring me down. Each time I reach for them I shudder in Halloween horror as thoughts of big hair bands, leg warmers, over-sized sweaters, and Joan Jett race through my mind...I just can't go there. I am a bit disappointed that I am not more adventurous, heck I'll even try leggings this season, but skinny jeans...what's next? Acid washed jean jackets? Gross...So I think the jeans will remain hanging in the closet, and I might bust out in full 80's garb for my Halloween costume. I'll just carry my sugar-free, Splendafied mixer with me to the parties, skipping the Splenda costume, and show up as that chick from flash dance...shudder at the thought!
