Today’s Google Holiday: Happy Halloween (featuring Scooby Doo)!
What I was Googling: Thanks to Google’s new predict-y thing, I can’t get a good screen shot anymore, but I was Googling “Kamala Harris.” Interesting lady.
Hope you all had good Halloweens! Mine was excellent. Three costumes in 24 hours makes for an excellent Halloween, apparently. While I enjoyed both of my nighttime costumes, I think my rally costume — an XL adult onesie with a horse’s ass print on it — was my favorite. (Our signs said “Onesie Nation Under God.”) My friend took photos…I’ll try to get those up here on the blahg.
It was hard to hear things at the rally, but I really enjoyed the signs and the energy and Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s amazingness. And I mean, Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam live? HELLO?! Awesome. He played this:
A girl standing behind me shouted “Hey, this is the song from Remember the Titans!” when he began singing. Well, yes. Among other things.
Of course, Jon Stewart’s speech at the end made me all tingly inside and I kind of wanted to run up on stage and give him a hug and a high five. Unfortunately, at that time I was back inside eating pizza, so I kept doing that instead.

Happy almost Halloween everyone! I’m enjoying Halloween more and more every year as I get older. I love the creative costumes and the ghoulish goodies.
This year is a bonus because we actually have plans ahead of time…quite out of the ordinary. Pictures to follow on November 1st.
Arguably, my favorite Halloween tradition is carving pumpkins, but I must admit that my own personal pumpkins rarely extend past triangle eyes, a triangle nose and triangle fangs.
Here are some of my favorite, slightly more impressive, carved pumpkins.
Wall-E and Eve
Have a great Halloween!

It’s almost Halloween, one of my favorite holidays, and I am freaking out because I have absolutely no idea what I want to be. I feel like this year needs to be particularly good, since I was so entrenched in the campaign last year I didn’t even realize it was Halloween. Somebody call the wahhhhhmbulance.
Anyway, my beloved HuffPo has posted some hilariously adorable costumes for babies. Perhaps I’ll just take one of the ideas and adjust it a bit. I’m thinking the WALL-E costume would be super cute in my size. No? Okay. I always forget that Halloween means I’m supposed to dress skanky.

Speaking of last year’s election (Yes, yes, I KNOW that’s it’s almost been a year since the election, but this study just came out!) this news story kind of sucks for our male McCain voting readership. I have a feeling that demographic isn’t very high on this blog, but we are committed to reporting the strangest news to ALL of our readership.
According to a story from ABC news:
Republican men nationwide may have experienced a drop in testosterone levels the night Barack Obama was elected president, according to the results of a small study that found another link between testosterone and men’s moods.
But don’t worry boys, I’m sure you’ve gotten it back. I meant the testosterone. Not the election. Love you!
In case you’ve been living under a rock, here are some Youtube videos that you should have seen by now:
Teehee, it’s a drunk guy. And this one:
Cleverness abounds in the Democratic party! HUZZAH!
And ONE MORE THING. My friend over at Herding Scapegoats has been writing again. You should probably check it out. He is providing a rare look into the male psyche, addressing serious things like male jealousy and pooping.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, MY LITTLE GHOULS AND GOBLINS!
This evening I will be celebrating by dressing up as the one, the only, Richard Simmons. Think afro, tiny neon shorts, and tall white socks. I will obviously be having sex tonight.
So crack open a ice cold Bud Light and a bag of candy corn, pull something wacky out of your costume box (you have one too, right?), and do the Monster Mash.
Make it a good one!

So it’s been daysssss since I’ve written. Sowwy. Things are reeeeeal busy. TWO WEEKS UNTIL ELECTION DAY! But I’d like to take some time to spread some Halloween cheer–in a political way, because let’s face it, I am incapable of thinking about anything else until November 5. And even then…I don’t know.
So here is Yes We Carve, the blog that gives you stencils for your Barack O’ Lantern and other Baracky treats.
Was posting a link to another blog a weak post on my part? Yes. But cut me some slack, I’m busy trying to save the Constitution. I’ll do my best to keep posting.
PS- Woooohooooo Colin Powell!

Michele Allen was just trying to have a normal Saturday night. So she ended up in a cow suit, chasing children, peeing on porches and getting arrested Needless to say, she was schwasted.
(Middletown, OH) — Saturday night, people in the 3100 block of Wilbraham Road called police to report a woman wearing a cow costume was chasing kids, and blocking traffic. Michele Allen also allegedly urinated on the porch of one neighbor.
When officers arrived, they told her to go home. But later that night, they found her again, in the 2400 block of Verity, standing in traffic. This time, officers say, Allen smelled of alcohol and swore at them.
She was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
Allen plead guilty, Monday morning, in Middletown Municipal Court, and sentenced to a month in jail.
This is a true story. Apparently, she showed up to the hearing still in costume. Haha!
Many questions come up when one thinks about this story. Oddly enough, the first thing that came to my mind was how did she pee? From the udders? Or did she pop a squat and break character? DC correspondent Chris raised a couple of other good questions. Was she drunk before she put on the cow costume? Or did she get drunk and then decide to frolic about in a cow costume?
I question her judgment either way.
Silly Michele. If you had only waited until Halloween, you probably could have gotten through the night at least without being arrested. Hell, scaring children in a cow costume while drunk and peeing on buildings that don’t belong to you might even be considered normal–at least on a college campus.
