Fall's Biggest Decision

I've known what I want to be for Halloween for awhile now. I will post my costume later (hint: it's not Lady Gaga. I've come to terms with the fact that I am not meant to wear a leotard).

Since that's decided, I've been giving others bad advice about what they should be for Halloween. I told one friend it would be brilliant if he went as Mankini from E!'s "The Soup."

"Who?" he said. I explained:

"Just a dude who wears a bikini top, hence 'Mankini.'"

"No, I don't really want to do that," he demurred.

"It's a great idea," I said. "Be Mankini!!!!!!"

My friend Emily is doing an internship at a nursing home, and she said she has to wear a Halloween costume to work. "I need to be something that old people will think is cute," she said.

Thought about it for awhile.

"How about.....the Grim Reaper?"
