What a crazy morning. Everything that could’ve gone wrong, went wrong the morning we were set to film a video at the Party Bazaar.
So I wake up, eyes still closed, and immediately sit straight up in bed. Crap. I almost never wake up before my alarm clock goes off, and I usually set an alarm to be alive and awake to be able to get to wherever on time. Unfortunately, my Blackberry has issues and likes to submit itself into comas spontaneously. I reach over to check the time on my phone and find that my phone had died during the night. I even had it plugged into my charger and it wouldn’t even turn on when I plugged it into a different charger. Long story short, the mofo Jones had bailed hard. I won’t even go into the madness that ensued because you’ll either feel sorry for me or be annoyed and want to tell me to get over it and/or get an iPhone, all of which I already know. ANYWAYS.
We had an amazing time inside. I’ve never been inside the Party Bazaar before and was amazed at everything they had to offer. There were fake nails, fake eyelashes (my favourite), all sorts of glasses, hats, accessories, wigs, props, decorations, costumes, EVERYTHING. Seriously, if you need something Halloweeny, GO.
So we all picked out a costume and of course, I had to go with something ridiculous. For some reason, I’ve been all into the onesies costumes for Halloween. It came down to a gorilla and the chicken but the chicken came out on top. If you didn’t know, you can try on the costumes there. There are fitting rooms and an attendant to help you out. Seriously, that chicken suit was ridiculous. I could not see through the head piece; the eye slits were not big enough! Maybe it was because it was fresh out of the bag but when I was being chased through the store by the Bounty Hunters, I was running blind like my head was cut off. Either way, it was a good time. When we were all wearing our animal head pieces, Kendra introduced a bunny sound, Rob showed us the familiar dog sound, and then if you listen carefully, he said, “And this is the sound Amie makes.” Oink oink. Anyways, I thought that was pretty funny. I didn’t realize he had said that ’til I watched the video. Thanks ROB!

I honestly have no clue what I’m doing this weekend. I usually never make plans during Halloween. The thing I look forward to the most is handing out candy to all the little kiddies. They are seriously so cute. I was teaching my little 3-5 year olds and I had asked them what they were going to be and do for Halloween. Then they asked, “Teacher Amie, what are you going to be?” When I replied with, ”Honestly, I think I’m just going to wrap myself in toilet paper and be a mummy,” they started laughing hysterically. Then another kid said, “You’re going to be a toilet!” More hysterical laughter. And then another said, “You’re going to be a toilet mummy!!!!” Even more hysterical laughter. Kids can be so clever. It was all fun and games until one kid said, ”You’re going to be poo!” and another chimed in, “You’re going to be pee!” Me:“Alright, that’s enough of that.”
I’m actually almost tempted to go out onto the streets with a camera and interview people with the best and worst costumes. Any videographers not doing anything? Holler! Have a good weekend, my zombies, hoes and superheroes and superhoes. Be safe and don’t chafe. If you see someone wrapped up in toilet paper, don’t pour water on her or use her after you’ve gone potty.
