No, I could not think of another “d” word for my alliterative title. Anyways, this is a fine Non-Sequitur Thursday post when my headline reflects what the post is actually about. I’d better throw in a picture of a monster.
I was going to go for Nosferatu, since he is my favorite, but then I saw this fellow looking just about as flustered as I feel. He is from The Brain that Wouldn’t Die. For the uninitiated, he does not posses the titular brain. In fact, we never see him till near the end of the flick, an excellent technique in a monster movie.
Now I’ve gotten right off the subject of the Doodah Parade, but just to bring you up to date: I decided not to participate after all. My lame excuses (how embarrassing to be lame before Lame Post Friday!): I don’t have time to get a costume together, I’ve gone back on overtime so 10-hour day on Friday and possible early shift Saturday, I have a doctor appointment Friday afternoon which may last inconveniently late.
Of course as soon as I messaged my friend Kim, who is in charge of our float, begging off, I began to feel guilty and regretful. After my shower, I tried on the fancy dress I thought might make a good costume. It’s a little tight but would do in a pinch. I started thinking of other possibilities.
This, regular readers (if any) may recall, was my Wizard for the March of Dimes costume. It’s awfully dark colored. I wonder how hot it would be.
I’m the one on the left, in the yellow tights. That would be a cool-looking but hot-feeling costume. Anyways, I don’t have all the parts in my possession, as some were borrowed from the LiFT collection.
I threw in the picture of Nosferatu just to mix things up a little. I think monsters make a blog post fun.
One final thought: I wore this ensemble for a murder mystery. I think the blue throw is striking. I could wear it with shorter pants in the hot weather.
So I’m thinking IF my doctor appointment gets done in time, and IF I’m not too tired from getting up at 3 a.m. and working in the heat, MAYBE I will get home, shower fast, put on something costumey, and join the parade. But no promises.
