links and a preview of my Halloween costume.

I can't wait for you all to see me in my Papa Smurf costume. Those of you who knew me in the Four Eyes Rella days will have seen a bit of it before, but not the full amazingness it is today.

We found this baby in a thrift store for like, seven dollars or something. The pants are WAY too small for me and the shirt is like a crop top but I'm making it work. Here's the funniest pictures of me in it from like 2009 when we first bought the thing. I didn't really know what smurfs do so I stood in the trees, looked at a mushroom and tried to pick up a rock? Anyway, enjoy.

HAHAHAA the rock one is so stupid. So this time around I got some pants that fit me (note the strategic angles of the photos...my butt was hanging right out of those ones) and a non-stinky brand new beard. And it also has blue feet I can wear. So. Awesome.

I have the day off work on the 31st and I think I'm just going to wear the costume all day long.
Well, maybe not the beard.

ANyway. Links now.
