    So my favorite last minute one was one year I put rollers in my hair and wore this mumu. Then I made some cardstock umm... man um parts and I colored them with crayons and painted blood on them. I put them in a box that had a sign on it that said "Lorena Bobbitt ain't got nothing on me." Yeah.

    JJR the spice cake was delicious! Now I will say I used whole milk instead of almond milk and I added a couple eggs. I’ve never made a cake with almond milk though I like to drink it, and I’ve never made a cake without eggs so I just couldn’t not add them! Lol But at any rate this cake came out moist and delicious! Thanks

    Spiders legs come out of their head, not their body. the spider would look a lot more frightening/convincing if you had the legs coming from the head :)

  • The Bullied Experience

    I was a black cat one year when the show Alf was very popular and if you remember the show, cat was a delicacy on his planet. We stopped at this guys house who had an Alf toy on his roof as a decoration and as I walked away he ran upstairs and yelled out the window, "here kitty kitty kitty", which is what you would here Alf say as he chased the cat around the house.
