As if you really need to ask.


I can’t help it. I love chocolate. Oh, and I LOVE COSTUMES.

Like, so much. If I could wear a costume every day, I totally would.

I mean you get to BE SOMEONE ELSE for the day. You can totally transform your personality, appearance, everything, and just try a different one on.

This year: I tried villain on for size:

It’s not that I don’t like being me, I do. I mean, I like me more than anyone else likes me.

Still, fun to do other things. Hence the costume-themed birthday parties all the time. (Sorry, friends.)

Costumes like mine are sometimes hard work. This year, the wig was itchy, the coat was hot, I tried to wear high shoes all day and my feet hurt terribly because I’m bad at being a girl, but…I still love doing it.

And, hey, at least I didn’t leave feathers and glitter everywhere like last year.

Was I a parrot or a stripper? Give it your best guess.

Still, by the time I got home, I was a hot mess.

Cruella-ing is hard work.

Also, if you ever get to the point where you say to yourself, “You know what? I’m pretty tired of looking at grainy self portraits of Briana,” then you better never visit this blog again. Because, yeah, this isn’t stopping.

Posting before my day is actually over (yeah, still have like 6 hours of work, homies) because I have to go to a budget meeting with city council and it will definitely make me hate everything.

So I am going to focus on good NOW.

I found out today that Louis CK is hosting SNL in a couple weeks, something I am quite excited about. It’ll be good to see how he fits into the sketches and stuff.

Also, Netflix started using Halloween packaging for their DVDs a while ago. While the first envelopes were cool, the new ones are super great.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it, but I adore Halloween. (Editor’s note: I’ve definitely mentioned it. If you didn’t know, pay more attention) What’s not to love? Candy and costumes, people, candy and costumes.

Apologies for the wonderful and complete manicure happening here.

Also, I saw this picture and LOLed because I always LOL at chubchub jokes. Such is my life.

Also,  I had this conversation today, which I think I can credit to Rikki.

Me: “No, she’s totally cray cray now.”

My super cool and hip boss: “What’s a cray?”

A picture of your favorite holiday

Oh, I don’t know. I like eating. I like my family. I like drinking. So I like all holidays.

But only one that allows me to wear a costume, which may be one of my favorite things in the world.

Ash Ketchum. (Not an actual Halloween costume, just one of my costume parties. See! I really like costumes!)

Also, I don’t buy costumes. I make them. Which, in the end, costs me far more than if I were to buy them. And no one knows who I am. Still worth it!
