I'm also contemplating what to wear for Halloween this year, if anything at all. My two close female friends are going away for a conference that weekend (BOO). However my boyfriend's coming up that weekend! I'm so excited and awed that he actually asked more than a month in advance if he could come. (With his jobs and all, sometimes he needs to work weekends, depending on scheduling.) It is not often someone will make plans at least a month in advance to spend time with me. ♥ Well, unless plane tickets are involved, but even then it's usually me
flying to visit them
I may see if there's time enough during fall break to go costume hunting. I wasn't really anybody proper last weekend. People's
. I may just wear my old Ren Faire costume again. I may try to put together some kind of Wednesday Addams costume
. :P I saw it last fall break in a store, but the smallest they had then was Small and it didn't fit well. Online it seems XS is available, but I don't know if I want to try and hope for the best fit. Especially considering the look of the costume. I already have a short-ish black skirt (the one I wore to the Fetish Ball in April) - all I'd need are the striped stockings and a black-and-white school-girl like blouse. Or maybe I'll do some kind of dichotomous costume... Matt went as Dexter
last year. Inventive and resourceful guy he is.
I have to finish H.G. Wells's The Time Machine
for tomorrow. It's a short book, novella, what have you. 96 pages, excluding the introduction, preface, notes, appendix and additional readings. I'm still having a hard time getting into it. I suppose it's the style of writing. I always have a hard time getting into a book where it's noticeable the story is recounted through someone else. Like in Shelley's Frankenstein,
too. Through the letters, and the stories within stories. Hopefully when the Time Traveller goes to the future, that type of narrative style will end. It always makes me feel removed from the grit and meat of the story and I feel like I'm not...allowed?
to be pulled in because the author consciously chose to put those layers between me and the story. If that makes sense.
