Those crazy costumes...

Halloween 2012 has come and past. It's actually my favorite time of year because there is so much going on around that time. Husker games, parties, biking events. And best of all you can dress up for all of them! I didn't buy any candy for the kiddos in the neighborhood this year, so I hunkered down in my basement and shut off the upstairs lights! Half expecting to find my house egged in the morning, I awoke to find nothing on my vinyl siding. Whew, I blew a sigh of relief!

Guess who that is in the witch outfit? Yup, Andy! Wish I had his face in the shot. It was green!

Lock em tight boys and gals!

The starting place...Crescent Moon. Off to a long night of fun!

Two totally cool ladies just came up and talked to Cody and I. The biking community is so awesome around here! Awesome and hot might I add!

The Old Dundee bar, with Cody, Molly, and Lindsay

I made use of two costumes this year, one for the THOR fundraising pub crawl and another for a Halloween party that a coworker invited me to. The pub crawl costume consisted of me wearing my Chinese takeout costume, with a fro, and some sunglasses. This was actually a decent costume to wear on the crawl, because it allowed me to see and and withstood the rain that pelted us as we left for the last bar on the trip.

Off to the Homey!

Jodi on the left, Heather on the right. Jodi was hand rolling "things" for Cody since he somehow became Bob Marley that night.

FYI, those aren't hot dogs in there. But Emilie was determined to win one.

The sushi roll and the Chinese takeout. We make the full Asian cuisine right there!

This was actually my first ever pub crawl believe it or not (not counting party buses). I had never done the bar stool open (pub crawl with miniature golf for a fundraiser) or anything organized like this before. I would have to say that it was pretty fun! Definitely don't plan to drive afterwards. maybe. We started at Crescent Moon, went up the street to Sullivan's, on to Old Dundee Bar, Homey Inn, and finally the Sydney out in Benson. There was a poker run, costume contest, raffles (including a freakin bike!), and good times. Fun fun fun! Craziest time of the night was seeing Cody endo in front of me on the way to the Sydney in the rain. Darkness, rain, huge puddles, and curbs were at fault. And Cody NEVER falls, so this was surprising to me. It was one of those slow motion, "Oh sh*t..." types of scenes.

Finally made it to Sydney, where the costume contest and raffles took place.

The Filter Kings took the stage. Good stuff. I've heard a song or two from these guys many many years ago.

The sock monkey costume on the other hand, did not allow me to see a single thing. Try looking through the nostrils of a monkey head and you'll immediately know what I mean! I could barely even see walking up the stairs to the party! Then mix alcohol into the equation and then the costume only got worse! And inside the monkey head was two layers! So hot in there! But it was a crazy good time and people loved the costume. I mean, how can you not love it? Ended up at Loose Moose towards the end of the night (I think it was the Lemonheads playing) where some girl just yanked the monkeyhead off of my head and ran off with it. Luckily I had backup and they stopped her from making an exit. Who does that? Buy your own d*mn costume next time b*tch! Haha.

All sorts of Shenanigans going on there

Have you ever seen a sock monkey playing Buck Hunter? Well have.

The sock monkey likes to get up in your face!

Am I dancing or what the heck?
