@Gracefully and Grandly I think my favorites are weirdly conceptual. For example, one year my husband I went as "Evils of the Workplace." I was Bureaucracy in a pencil skirt, blouse and severe bun, he was Apathy in ripped up jeans, old t-shirt, and a flannel. Bonus to this was that we did not have to buy anything!
@BreezyK @smidge Yes, I really appreciated this. I feel like I have to stay away from those boards because they will make me more stressed and neurotic about everything. I wish there was a way to talk to other people about this and feel without it being so horribly awkward.
@Lindsay "The Dilettantista" Gordon These are great stories!
@Xanthophyllippa It is! But some of our Northeastern 'pinners found the association with Lyme disease a bit too terrifying.
@Reginal T. Squirge I suppose that would have been useful to include! I used to be Borrelia Burgdorferi based on this comment by Ophelia: http://thehairpin.com/2011/06/youre-probably-dying-of-babesiosis/#comment-49672
I don't comment that much since I am usually ages late to most threads.
So, this week I decided to change my user name. Now I am Nutria! Although I don't think I can actually be as hilarious as the Nutria that was interviewed.
@sovereignann@twitter Here is a Reddit thread that has a really nice overview of what happens and when. I know Reddit can be terrible sometimes, but I think this is pretty useful! http://www.reddit.com/tb/vbkfm?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=feed
@nowwhat During college there was someone on campus with Red 5. Truly awesome.

@area@twitter Yes, we were originally told by BGE that we would get power back at 2:30 today. Now it just says "status pending." My husband is back at the house throwing out the contents of the fridge right now. Thankfully we took the more expensive freezer items to a friend's house yesterday.

@area@twitter We are without power at home, and I *just* got an email that power has come back in our office. Thank goodness for close friends with power that have allowed us to stay at their house since Saturday afternoon!
