Happy Halloween Everyone!


So, I’m writing this on Monday, when I still have power. I’ll probably have another hurricane post on Friday, but this one is ready to go and scheduled.

Allie was a mummy last year, remember:


Anyhoo, you know how I decided to start adult Halloween, aka trick-or-wine?



Well, it’s still a genius idea, of course. But not all my animal friends like wine. And since a lot of them dressed up, they decided that they should share how they’d like to celebrate Halloween.

Allie:



Popsicle:


Sparkles the Unicorn:



Melissa the Manatee: 


Ducky:
Ducks Against Raping Ducks (and humans). Spread the word.

Pigletta:

Trick. Always trick.

Ellie the Elephant:

Whatever you want, you creepy ass clown elephant.

Lioness:

Ouch.

Whale:


Oh and this:

Mayor Gia’s Guide to Preparing for a Hurricane


1. Say this:


2. Get scared and freak out





3. Play with your new iphone for awhile


4. Create the following emergency kit:

1. Scented candle
2. More scented candle
3. Mini scented candles
[Apparently, you shouldn't ever buy a candle that isn't scented. Even though that means you can't light them at once because the smells won't go together.]
4. Mini flashlight
5. 8 pack of batteries for flashlight, even though two double As usually last about 4 years in said flashlight
6. Red bull. Because if I lose power and can’t make coffee, I need caffeine.
7. Wine because I don’t need to explain that one to you.
8. A pumpkin…it always helps.

5. Get water
I wish I had a few jugs of water, but the CVS was sold out when I went there yesterday. I filled pots. I’m crazy about having enough water.


1. Pot of water
2. Huge pot of water
3. Pot of water
4. Tiny pot of water

But the most important thing is this:
6. KEEP EVERYTHING CHARGED!!!


Because if/when I lose power, the clock starts ticking on my iphone battery.


Yeah, it’s scary to think about. No tv, laptop, or phone? I have no idea what I’m gonna do with my time.

  
9. Plan for activities to keep you busy when you lose power and can’t watch tv 

I know what I’m going to do. I’m going to eat all the cheese in my fridge. Because I HATE WASTE.



10. Finally, construct a pillow fort in your living room.


And now you’re ready for a hurricane!

But seriously, stay safe everyone.  I’ll be freaking out on twitter if you need me.

More Awesome Random Costumes


Imaginary Reader: So what are you blogging about today?

Imaginary Reader: Gia! Stop playing with your iphone and blog something!

  
Okay okay fiiiiine. Let’s do some more costumes.


Ducky: What the fuck?!
Me: You’re an iphone.
Ducky: Uncool, Gia.
Me: Well, you're an angry bird then. Technically.


She’s a cowgirl. She refused to change out of her regular cowgirl outfit, so I decided not to make a big deal about it.

Ellie the Elephant:

You are a terrifying clown, Ellie. Good job.


Lioness: What the FUCK?!
Me: I thought maybe dressing you up as Santa would make you less angry. You know, because he’s so jolly.
Lioness: ….
Me: I see it’s not working. 

And the last one for today:

An angelic whale! How adorable!

Hugging: It's a Health Issue


One reader/tweeter, Melissa gave me a gift last week. She tweeted this at me:


 What is it, you ask? I’ll tell you. A link to this article:


It’s an article about an experiment where men and women hug and it lowers women’s blood pressure more than men’s.




 In case I needed an excuse, I now officially have a hug card.


It’s perfect, really.





Clicky to read



I coo, remember?





Happiest Gia ever.

Boyfriend Clearly Doesn't Want Me to Blog Anymore...


Why is that, you ask?


If you may recall, some bullshit happened awhile ago with the iphones and upgrades and whatnot.



 I couldn’t figure out how to get an iphone without spending an OBSCENE amount of money. And since I wasn’t willing to cut any of the important things out of my budget (cable, alcohol), getting an iphone seemed like a dream.


But then. Boyfriend made a magical thing happen:


And on Friday, it came!!!!!


 It’s so pretty, you guys.

Here, let me explain:


Anyway, so this pretty much happened as soon as I got it.




And everytime I started to blog, it distracted me with its shiny newness.


See, it’s bad. So in conclusion, if my blog suffers, it’s totally and completely Boyfriend’s fault.

Thank you, Boyfriend!

I'm only about four years behind on that one...
