Halloween Party Eve

Tomorrow is T-Bone's Halloween party that I've been preparing for all month. I'm going as Prince, circa 1984, so I was extremely disappointed to see the televised advertisement for that Everyone Hates Chris Rock TV show, where he's shown attending his grade-school Halloween party in full-on Prince regalia. Stupid Chris Rock. Stealing my thunder. I'd like to point out that I declared my costume intentions over a month ago. Whatever. Who watches UPN anyway.

I tried on my Prince costume today, and it's pretty funny in a pathetic doesn't-really-look-anything-like-Prince kind of way. I also have tried growing my own Prince moustache for the occasion, disguising it in the meantime as a half-assed goatee. But I should have started it more than two days ago, because it's not going to be nearly long enough by tomorrow night:

Damn my facial hair for not growing freakishly fast! I may have to pencil most of it in. Oh well. I was also planning on being tanner after my Hawaii trip in order to more closely resemble Prince's skin tone, but that obviously didn't happen either. Oh well.

There will be jello shots. I wonder if the real Prince has ever done a jello shot.

see, you chose Prince, yet more proof on the direction of your sexuality...maybe you should go as a man in the midst of a transgender reassignment.....Drop those jello shots like its hot...and as the masses identity......FATTY

Hey Dan, my husband wants a Prince costume. (Corny, but true.) Any idea where I can get one? I've been all over Google, eBay, etc. with no joy.
