You’re Trick-or-Treating in That?!

Pffthht — er, I mean, it’s very, um, distinctive. I especially like the way the silver lamé tutu complements the spaceman helmet.  And the corrugated-tin epaulets with the pink satin trim make a very, um, interesting statement.

So you run along, get lotsa candy, etc.  You’ll be back early, I assume. (snort, pffht!)

Technically, This Isn’t Stalking

Every time I see her, I just can’t look away.  I try to tell myself I’m over her, but then I see that face, those eyes… and that’s when I say to hell with the restraining order…

Here I am, my darling!  I’ve missed you so much — did you miss me, too?  I got so worried when you didn’t answer my last 47 letters that I just had to see you…

SDC10414

Wait, who’s this?  Not him again!  I thought I told you to stay away from him!  Can’t you see he’s no good for you?  He’ll never love you the way that I love you!  Never!
