I used to dress up as a teenage troublemaker who is running from the police because they just saw you egging the principals house.

Somehow I think there's a whole lot of truth behind that "costume," Rob.

I'll have to dig out a photo of one of mine....

We'll be going to the NPS party at the bar in Herrmann Hall, called the Trident Room. The party is next Thursday night, and it's called "Terror in the Trident Room". I've already been on a "ghost walk" in Herrmann Hall, and it is supposedly haunted by many ghosts, including Admiral Herrmann himself, who committed suicide there after he had established the school.
Jeff will be Julius Caesar and I will be his wife, Calpurnia. I know that the big thing is to be his lover, Cleopatra, but I look more like a proper Roman matron. Besides, I already own a stola and palas and I speak Latin!
On Saturday evening, I'm going to sit outside on our patio with my witch's hat and hand out the candy from a cauldron while cackling. I'm going to try to get Jeff to rig up some dry ice to make the cauldron "steam". I've ordered a decoration that is a motion-activated witch that will also cackle. Our little front yard looks very spooky, with a huge pine tree that is covered in hanging Spanish moss. I should be able to give the little kiddies quite a fright!
I do so enjoy Halloween!

Rob,
I know your type! In fact, I taught way too many of them. Too smart for their own good!

I was supposed to go to a party with a friend last year, but she was sick so I am going to recycle that costume for the party this year and go as a Vestal Virgin.

PS - I hope the attachment worked.

That's pretty funny! Of course, being a guy, my first thought was of John Belushi yelling "Toga! Toga!".

You guys are so lucky. We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, but it seems like so much fun. It's not a big thing here, you might get a few kid's trick or treating, but they don't even make the effort to dress up. I've never even seen a house decorated with a Halloween theme here in Melbourne. Come to think of it...I don't even think Halloween is marked on our calender. Sounds like we're missing out on a whole heap of fun. It would be a good excuse to dress up, and scare those kid's who keep riding their bikes on my front lawn :laugh:

Sandy,
It looks great just the way it is! In Rome, the Vestal Virgins weren't touched,even without such a thing as chastity belts. I think that the men were way too scared! If a vestal was convicted of being unchaste, she would be buried alive, and her "partner in crime" would be thrown into the Tibur in a large sack, along with a dog, a rooster and a venomous snake in the sack.
Sorry, all this Roman info just comes pouring out of my head!
Rob and others,
I've been to a few college toga parties in the '70s that just might make you blush! There was this concoction called passion punch that contained at least 7 forms of alcohol.....
There was also this one young lady who never wore anything under her "toga" and usually lost at least part of it while dancing... (Not me - Jeff and I were already married and baby #1 was on the way by that time - we were amused observers).

hmmm marla was it late 70's i was born 79 in gorgia and think me mum lived in usa for few year before that!! :-) hehe lol
and tammi thou they celbrate over here in uk its nothing like iremember celbrating it in the usa!!
as a child i remember gonig to school in our costumes each class would walk around the rest and show everyone, then after school mum would pick us up and we would walked round local shops who we be handing out thing like little pads and pens as well as sweetssome one even have compitions i got pic some where will have to fish out will give you all a giggle!! then after dinner we would only go knock at friends and families houses (who would always have great decs! then get home and see what we all got and do swapsies then mum would over half it off us freezing the chocolate so we did eat it all at once!
most of the time now if thier over the age of 8 i would say you will be lucky if the got mask on or thier hoddys up!! i actually better to go out to a party and not be at home if looks like your not home your less likely to be egged or floured or both!! thou uk parties are getting better!!

Heidi,
I love the pics. Yes, the kids here in the US do make a big thing of Halloween. Even the teen-agers in the high school in which I taught would dress up and have a great time. One year, I put on my Roman stola and palas with a witch's hat and taught my classes. That had them roaring with laughter!
Yes, it was the late 70's, in St. Louis, Mo. My first daughter was born in '77. I graduated from college on her first birthday in '78. My hubby added an extra degree, so he graduated in '79, a couple of weeks before our second daughter was born. Those were exciting times.
You must be the same age as my Hillary. Just think, I'm old enough to be your mum!

Growing up in, and going to college in the 80's, the Toga party was still the big thing to do at USM. We had a large tub with a concoction known as jungle juice, and it had all sorts of different kinds of alcohol in it. Mixed it up in a big metal washtub and stirred it with a huge wooden spoon.

Had a tape made up with our favorite party tunes, Louie Louie, I Drink Alone, a bunch of Stevie Ray Vaugn, just pop it in the player, and let it run all night. Those were some fun times. And I think the "clothing optional" party girl is a national phenomenon or something, as every wild party seems to have one!

I remember the year I graduated from high school, a bunch of us had a halloween party at a friends cabin at a local lake. My friend, Andy, was a big time practical joker. He goes missing for about an hour, and everyone is wondering where he went. I mentioned that there had been some crazy logger who went nuts and killed a bunch of people with his chainsaw, and I hoped that Andy didn't run into him. Everyone is pretty well sauced at this point, so they buy my story. Next thing you know, there's a guy running through the front door wearing a hockey mask with a chainsaw roaring at full throttle!

People were jumping out of windows and running for their lives. The guy in the hockey mask turns off the saw, grabs a beer and sits down on the couch. It's Andy, the chainsaw has no chain, and we just laughed our butts off the rest of the night over our little prank. Great times.

What an awesome prank! I love jokes. It sounds like you and Andy had some good times together.

You forgot to list a couple of important Halloween songs - Purple People Eater and Wooly Bully popped right into my head since they only seem to be aired this time of year.

Did either of you ever see the movie Shag? They have a tub filled with alchohol mix that they called Purple Jesus. I always think of that when it comes to party punches. LOL!

Too funny too with the John Belushi reference. I think of History of the World Part 1.

Marla - Good to know about the live burial! I will make sure not to let anyone think differently of my chasity status b/c I think being buried alive would be a horrible way to die! Plus, it saves me the time of figuring out how to rig together a chasity belt!

Heidi - I love your old pics. I will see if I can't scrounge some up. Have to get that scanner hooked to the laptop too.

My parents asked me to come over to their house to help on Halloween. So I'm going over there for the evening. It gets busy in their part of town. They live near Stephen King, and his house is a big attraction on Halloween night. It's a spooky place in the daytime, at night with all the stuff he puts on display in the yard for the occasion, it's really creepy. Cool stuff. I'll take some pics.
