When I was in grad school, one Halloween...

I figured it'd be sporting to wear a costume to the school-sanctioned bash (okay, it was more a halfhearted poke than a bash, but anyway), but I didn't have any good ideas, and it was getting late. Friend and I were poking around in a shop for ideas.

I can't remember which of us spotted the axe first. It was silver, it was cardboard, and it was cheap. And, it was very very big. I hefted it. Friend said, "Perfect. An angry lesbian with an axe."

So, I showed up in streetwear, carrying my axe. I stood in the corner and tried to glower with appropriate menace.

"Death to the patriarchal hegemony!," I thought at them all.

After about ten minutes it dawned on me that this was pretty much what I'd been doing in class all day anyway. So I took it out on the dance floor. (It's difficult to dance and glower at the same time, with or without a giant cardboard axe).

About twenty minutes after that, the party wound down and ground (ha ha) to a halt. For a drama school, we were kind of short on theatrical flair, collectively, I thought. A dour old coldbed of Calvinism is a funny place to host a drama school, really, or Halloween, for that matter. The trappings were there, more or less, but the magic had been frowned into submission. At any rate, at one-thirty in the morning, the bars were all shut, and the witching hour had come and gone.

So I finished my Rolling Rock and went home, dragging my axe behind me.

So I'm gonna leave a comment cuz the original didn't get one. Happy anniversary, bd.

I shall comment as well. I rather like the costume. I had a friend who costumed himself as "the devil" one year. His costume? The same suit he wore to his insurance job every day.

But he carried soul sales contracts in his briefcase.

I've loved the name of this site since I first saw it - fun to know where it came from.

hee, my favorite costume was spotted on (natch, Buffy geek alert) BTVS. street clothes with one of those "Hi! My name is ___" name tags on the shirt, on which is neatly lettered in marker,

GOD

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.
