Bally Times

Was looking at a rack of Halloween costumes today, and found:

Luscious Lady Bug
Fairy Tale Princess
Cleopatra

Eh?? Strange Halloween selection, but it all points at the fact that it’s an evolving holiday.

It seems to be on our minds a lot… Mum pointed out some shiny black curtains, and I said “Halloween curtains!” Then we went into another shop and found some plain black gift paper and Mum said “Halloween paper!” Then we went to Starbucks and had cold mocha and cold cappuccinos (they weren’t supposed to be cold).

Anyway, the thing that made me sit up today: Wooster (in ‘Jeeves and Wooster’) proclaiming “The bally balliness of life makes everything so bally bally.”

  1. bally bally indeed 🙂

    We’ve been thinking and thinking here as a friend has been invited to a superhero theme party. She’s trying to find a female superhero that …er…actually wears clothes 🙂 Not as simple as you’d think.
    She probably going to go non-traditional with Marie Curie or Emilia Aerhart.

  2. Halloween curtains would have cobwebs.

    @Geo: Batgirl!

  3. That could easily be arranged… the cobwebs I mean. 🙂

    Batgirl is probably a good option. I can’t think of anything else… kind of demoralizing! Buffy?
