If I didn’t catch the swine flu at the thrift store today, I must be superhuman. Against my better judgment, I tried on hats from a bin, old people shirts — old people smell included — and more things that have been on other people’s faces than I care to think about. I feel like it was about the equivalent of getting the shot everyone seems to be pushing. Anyway, if you’re not already sick, there’s still some good costumes to be made. You’re not going to find your slutty vampire/seductress costume pre-made for you, but there’s nothing you, a pair of fabric scissors and some double sided tape can’t handle.

Tomorrow’s Forecast: Wait, I was kidding about the double-sided tape. Please don’t; it’s a slippery slope that leads right past body paint and pasties and straight to the unfortunate world of assless chaps.
