You may have heard rumors that I'm a little strange. Well, I'm here to tell you that they are true. As I mentioned Friday, our band played at a Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) party on Friday. I also hit a couple of Halloween parties Thursday night. (Took second place in the costume contest at one of them.) I've never really gone to much trouble for my Halloween costumes, but Mike, the other guitarist in the band is very gung-ho about dressing up, so I decided to go with the flow this year. It also helps that I pretty much have no shame.
Here's the band lineup from Friday night:
Here's Mike and his scythe guitar. (I guess you could say he was playing a mean axe that night.):
Jeff, the Zombie Rocker:
Donnie in his mask. (He didn't wear the mask while playing. He also didn't have to spend 30 minutes in the shower at 1:30 AM trying to wash the black makeup from his eyes.):
Some ugly blonde girl acting all matronly and stuff:
And the same ugly blonde girl with a not-so-ugly blonde girl (my pal Amy) at one of the parties Halloween night:
And for the record, you DO get funny looks from people if you're a 50-something year old man trying on bras in the lingerie aisle at Walmart. (I learned that I'm a 44C, BTW.)
