record faces

Clementine woke up this morning with a great costume idea for next Halloween. She wants us to go as, “a family of record faces.”

    I’m partial to no-effort costumes.

    I’m curious whenever I see that the first comment on a post is from Mark himself. Are you adding a new thought for the audience, or are you starting a conversation with yourself?

    It’s a great costume idea, although you should try to figure a way around the visual impairment for the wearer.

    If you whittled your noses really thin at the end, you could put the records right on them. And from there it shouldn’t be too hard to rig up a working stylus to play the record. Now that would be cool. The one down side is that you’d have to spin the records with your tongues.

    It was just something that didn’t fit in the post, so I added it as a comment. I do that sometimes. I also post photos of my daughter and I with records over our faces when I don’t have anything interesting to say. Lest anyone think that I made it up though, I didn’t. She really did walk up to me with a record in front of her face, suggesting that we trick or treat as a family of “record faces.”

    Last year she wanted to be a fish with a bird’s head, but changed her mind a few days before Halloween, when her friend Amelia gave her a bat costume.

    You certainly have plenty of MPT records laying around the house that could be used for costumes. I’m not sure there’s any other real purpose for them.

    I love my wife and daughter too much to do that to them.

    I have putting needles in my Halloween candy for decades, waiting for the right records to scratch.

    Ever notice how Clementine looks like Suri Cruise?

    There are a lot of posts about Scientology here, and some of them are suspiciously light on the hate.

    I’m picturing something like a Boys From Brazil / Rosemary’s Baby hybrid.

    Multiple locations. Lots of mothers carrying Scientology messiahs.
