My favourite time of year is fast approaching…MARDI GRAS, St. John’s style, taking place at the end of October. For those who aren’t familiar, St. John’s folks will literally find any occasion to drink their face off, and Halloween is the excuse of all excuses. Girls dressed down in Playboy bunny outfits? Zombies and vampires roaming the street? Throw in a man dressed as one of the 300 guys and you’ve got one of my fantasies. Fuckkkk yeah.

Unfortunately, I may have reached my peak of good costumes. I’m completely stumped. I actually enjoy Mardi Gras more than Christmas, I’m not even joking. I anticipate this occasion year-round, and when it’s over, I mope for days. Last year, I made my very own Duff Woman costume:

I actually ran into Duff Man downtown, we danced. It didn't work out.

The year before that, I was the crazy cat lady (I had absolutely no intention of running a Simpsons theme here, I swear):

So how the HELL do I top Duff Girl? I was thinking about going as Kelly, but I’m not sure everyone would get it. Plus it has to be just a little bit sexy; Mardi Gras is the one time I can justifiably get away with dressing like trash.

Anyway, V tagged me in a note a few days ago where I’m supposed to list five things that make me feel sexxxay.  I could maybe list about 40, for I am a sexual lion. Tiger? Panther? Who knows.

  1. Not having to wear glasses anymore. The sense of empowerment is amazing; today I actually flashed a smile at the cute, buff guy at the guy I’ve had my eye on for awhile OMG.
  2. Long hair. I love having it all swishy. Nothing feels better than wearing a tank top and having your hair tickling your back.
  3. Boobs. My boobs have been famous for awhile, they’re pretty nice.
  4. Being at the gym. Doesn’t matter if I have sweat blinding my eyes or my face is blood-red from the effort, I always feel fit at the gym.
  5. Strippers. Not joking. When I went to see strippers with the boys in July, I was touching my toes on the dance floor immediately after.

I’d tag five people, but I don’t know who would actually do this. So if you read this entry, do it, bitch.

    I love you. I am Rapunzel this year for Halloween – was Wonder Woman last year. Love the Duff Man costume. Absolutely perfect.

    Kelly would be fun cause you could spend the whole night saying “let’s get some shoes” and wear crazy striped socks with some really, really great shoes.

    I heart numero 5. And the fact that you said do it bitches makes me happy.

    I’m not sure what could beat the Duff Girl. Cause, that is one kick ass costume. I’m thinking I might go as a thundercat this year.

    I once made a beer pong table costume for my bf at the time. That was my claim to fame.

    oh my gosh-I have no idea what that “kelly” clip is, but it’s frickin’ hilarious. That would be an awesome costume even if most people don’t get it.

    I have zero clue as to who the heck this Duff character is. But I just wanted to say, that the person who was the crazy cat lady is not you. AT ALL. I NEVER woulda guessed it was you!

  6. Pole dancing classes at held at my gym. Some of the girls look a lot like real strippers or they dress scantily because they like to show off their bodies and think this is the perfect way to do it. They can’t wait for Halloween costumes!

    @V: You’ll make a lovely Rapunzel!

    @Linlah: Exactly, I’d love an evening of just mimicing her all over the place

    @Lola: Hahahahahha, thank you. And beer pong table? Freaking awesome, I want to see a picture of this

    @Nancy: It’s pretty big here! Hahahaha, I think it’d be a ton of fun

    @Nashe: Oooh, Duff Man is a character from The Simpsons, so I did my own twist and made he a she. I got a TON of attention for it, it was pretty kickass. And that’s totally me, amazing what some coloured hairspray and teased hair can do! Hahahaha.

    @Secretia: There are pole dancing CLASSES?! I want to sign up!
