Well, Hallowe'en is just around the corner, 9 days to be exact, and it's one of my favourite times of year with the costumes and all. For the last two years I have done our house up in a Star Wars theme, and this year will be no exception. The evil Emperor sits in front of our main window in his diabolical chair flanked on each side by a Stormtrooper at the ready. Black candelabras cast flickering shadows on his gnarled face. Darth Vader guards the entranceway and keeps a tight rein on slave Leia, in case she's thinking of starting some trouble. Boba Fett stands off in the distance, in his mind quietly calculating his next move. On the walkway there will be pumpkins bearing the likenesses of Darth Maul, Yoda, and some familiar insignia. Is that C3PO's head mounted on a spear? He must have done something he couldn't talk his way out of!! The effect is completed by having appropriate music piped outside through the window!! Good stuff. I plan to wear Eryn's Queen Amidala costume at the door (if I can squeeze into it!!). Amanda and Eryn plan to go as SAILOR MOON and SAILOR JUPITER, but heaven only knows why!! Even more disturbing is the news that Mert has been humiliated into being TUXEDO MASK (seriously folks......I've seen him in the suit!!!) There has even been some wild talk about Boba Fett donning a mini-skirt and transforming into "GO-GO FETT"......but you didn't hear that from me. Now, to my way of thinking, Han is the only one with ANY dignity.....he's going to go as Han, Han with a new blaster in fact, and that's that! Can anyone top that!!! Happy haunting on the 31st!!!
