It's that time again!

Things have not really been going our way today. Work's been going slowly, which we hate because it makes us feel slow, and it means work lasts longer, and it makes us want more time. But we don't get more time, because stuff keeps coming up! Today, I suddenly have a meeting with my church committee. Athena points out that at least they remember I'm on the committee, so I guess we really should count it as a win.

But anyway, we're especially feeling a need for more time today, because last night, Gaston called and asked if we wanted to go to Mickey's Halloween Party. Given our current feelings toward Disneyland and their evil money-sucking ways, we probably should have said no, but we can never resist an invitation to Disneyland. So we said we're not opposed to the idea, and then Gaston said he was thinking of going as the Beast this year instead of Gaston. Well, that's cool, especially because we're tired of wearing the same costumes every year, but...who are we supposed to dress as?

Alice is going to be Belle, of course, and that pretty much leaves us with Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, Chip, the Wardrobe, the Feather Duster, or going with something else entirely. But cosplay is always so much more fun with a group, so we're really torn. We're still kind of traumatized from the last time we made a Lumiere costume, so we're leaning towards Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts. But the point is, it takes time to make costumes, and we don't feel like we have any! And, while of course we love all the characters, there's not any special attachment. Plus, our idea for a Cogsworth costume, while pretty awesome, wouldn't quite work so well on a feminine figure. So then I'm like, "Well, I guess we could get a pattern and make a chest binder," but that's just more woooooork. Whine whine whine.

On the other hand, it's kind of a good kick in the pants to get back into the costume-making swing of things. We would really like to be some prettier characters, though. Whine whine whine.

Oh well. We'll figure it out, I guess.

Today I'm thankful for being invited to something, being rescued by Bahamut-0, getting to watch Castle last night, figuring out how Hulu subscriptions work, and the opportunity to make new Halloween costumes (whatever they might be).
