Memetic stagnation [Oct. 29th, 2009|09:52 am]
sigma7
[Tags|, ]

I haven't revisited the Hallomeme in a long, long time, and suddenly it's seasonal again. I really should. I really should've, already. (Hell, I still haven't tended to my f-list properly after the GDBM influx.) Part of me wants to redo phpnonsense and make it more modular into other projects, part of me realizes it's just a gift from God that it works at all and I should just back away from it slowly. And it's in the spirit of the latter that I present Hallomeme '09: same as it ever was. Random nouns, random adjectives -- it's just as nonsensical as it ever was.

I like how you say that, like it's in your closet, ready to be pulled out. "Let's see, zombie, vampire, skeleton, Faith Hill riding a penguin.... Well, I just wore it five years ago, so let's hope nobody remembers."

I'm not sure how sad it is that I actually considered digging my BDUs out of the closet to wear for Halloween. Decided that my PJs were much more comfy (long t-shirt and sweats).
Hope you and yours are doing well!!

Sounds like you got the "random adjective/random noun" costume choice. Some of those make sense, and some ("downward ghost") don't; sorry about that.

At least you got clothing -- an impressive number of these turn out to have nudity involved, much more than the Halloween parties of my youth. (And almost more than grad school, but not quite.)
