Hey... so I'm *still* working on
the next story that was supposed to
make up this newsletter since it's set around Halloween. But it's
not done. It's close but I didn't wanna rush it.
Thankfully, it's not sooo Halloween-centric that it'll seem stupid in
two weeks. At least I hope not! Plus, it's quite
serious. And I think Halloween should be light and cheery!
Or at least goofily scary. In any case, I threw this together
I hope you all have a happy, fun,
and safe Halloween!
So, Andrew's hatred of Halloween is pretty well documented. But I
happen to think that with the right influences, Andrew might come to
see at least some fun in it! Below are some costume ideas that I
think even Andrew wouldn't mind having around! If only we could
really spend All Hallow's Eve with him... Sigh...
Costumes that AODs Will Appreciate
10. Be a glass of orange juice and get a friend to
dress up as a bottle or can of ginger ale. Or vice versa.
You'll definitely be popular with Andrew and Adam!
9. The Four Seasons- Okay, so that's just what I'm
being and I'd like to think the AODs would appreciate it... And I
needed 10 items for this list and ran outta ideas... :-)
8. Dress as yourself. When an AOD asks what
you're supposed to be say "Someone who thinks AODs are awesome."
Aww! You made an AOD smile! Yay you!
7. A teddy bear- Cause they may need something
cuddly to hug after putting up with all that "death is scary!"
6. Andrew, Adam, or Henry- Hey, imitation is the
sincerest form of flattery.
5. Angel- They will especially enjoy when you turn
your overhead flashlight and tell them "God loves you!" Cause
they need to hear it, too.
Blue Oyster Cult- A
group costume. Sure, you could just dress up as rockers.
But why not be inventive? Get yourself some blue oyster costumes
and then be sure to stay in a tight, kinda creepy looking group.
Randomly burst into the chorus of "Don't Fear the Reaper."
doesn't look like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen- If Adam was
worried about Monica's strapless dress in "Fallen Angela," I'm pretty
sure most of the women's Halloween costumes the stores are peddling
will give him whatever the angelic equivalent of a coronary is.
So yay for fabric!
A wall- If you wind
up trick-or-treating with any of the AODs, you can just keep a few
steps in front of them and run ahead to block their view with your
wallness if a grim reaper is spotted. For added fun, "tag" your
costume with pro-AOD messages in a variety of spray paint colors.
Dress up as a
frostbitten demon. Get a friend to dress up as a pig with
wings. Congratulations! You're "Things More Likely to
Happen Than Monica and Andrew Getting Together." (Note:
A personal fav of mine. Maybe next year...)
while we're at it... here
some costumes that I think Mr. Halo would look especially
stunning in... Or at least have a good time with! And
what's more stunning than a super-happy AOD?!? I don't
know! If I did... I wouldn't still be here after 12 years.
Costumes We Approve for
A teddy bear- It
works for Andrew, too! Because then it totally makes sense when
you hug him repeatedly. Teddy bears are meant to be hugged!
player. It's cute. He likes sports. And it's better
than a football player cause the helmet with that one would block your
view of his adorable face and gorgeous hair.
Anyone in a uniform
including but not limited to: a police officer, a firefighter, or a
member of the armed services. Sigh...
A lumberjack- Sure, we see the jeans and flannel look a lot. But
you can never get
too much of the jeans and flannel look...
1940s/50s Era P.I.-
There are at least two of us that totally dig the trench coat and
fedora look on Andrew. Swoon!
literature professor. Okay, okay. So it's kinda a lame
costume. But I love that look! And instead of saying "Trick
or treat!" we could make him recite a poem instead!
4. Himself in garb depicting the era in which he
No reason not to use Halloween to try and solve the mystery of his
age! Of course, if he predates humanity then God only knows what
show up wearing.

Not Edward Cullen. Really I don't care beyond that. Oooh
except not Lady Gaga, either. Or anyone from "Jersey
Andrew- So maybe
our Halloween-hating AOD wouldn't want to dress up. It'd kinda be
a let down. But it's okay. Because we love him just the way
he is. Aww.
should not depict
Doc Hock in any of the following scenarios: in a hot tub with
prostitutes, drunk, shaving in the rain, hauling a bed out of a hooch,
being shot at, or wandering into an alley amid explosions.
And why are there eleven items on this "top ten" you may be asking
yourselves? Apparently I cannot count... Not sure how that
happened. Oh well.
