The Big Wicked Online Pageant

A couple of years ago, this blog circle participated in quite the entertaining online event: The Little Miss Sunshine Online Pageant. Participants posted a grade-school photo, and Dale and I linked to those posts on our blogs. The contest was a smash, with about thirty folks posting their lovely piccies, and people from far and wide clicked their way across our blogworld. It was a hoot seeing who was a third-grade hottie and who was fourth-grade nottie.

I was a nottie.

Some of us discovered new blogs to read, so it was well worth the time to dig through the boxes in mama’s attic. But we haven’t done anything fun like that since 2006.

That is, not until Bubs over at Sprawling Ramshackle Compound put on his cocktailing thinking cap. He contacted Dale and me with a great idea: posting our favorite Halloween costume photos. Ideally, these would be photos from your childhood — but we’re easy. We’re talking the ultimate in tricks and treats!

Rules for The Big Wicked Online Pageant

Scan a photo from your Halloween past.

Post it on your blog Monday evening, October 28.

Once you post your photo, e-mail me at the address on the navbar. If you can, include the URL to that specific post.

I’ll post a link to every participant’s blog Tuesday morning by 9 a.m.

So start digging through your archives. Warm up the scanner. Get ready to don your best Halloween masks!

Send me an email reminding me to do this please. I found a Halloween picture today of me from 1983.

This is a good idea, and I'd play along if it didn't necessitate a) a scanner; b) pictures of childhood me that I don't have; and c) pictures of Halloween me. We weren't really a picture-taking family.

I have no Halloween pics, seriously.

Oct. 28 is a Tues. I know this b/c EG and I are going to see Billy Bragg on Mon. 27! Please clarify which day to post. I don't have any childhood photos with me, but if he says okay I'll post the pic of us from the first Halloween we were together over at WILATU.

Oh dangit, my mom has all those old pics in Texas! I'll have to call her and beg her to check 'em.

You're a doll for doing it Beth, not one of those creepy Marie Osmond on QVC dolls mind you but a living doll!

Brilliant idea! I shall take a look through the archives and play along. :)

I guess a contest of sorts is worth it just to make Beth blog a little something at least once a month!!!

I'm in. Is it okay if my picture is not safe for work?

perfect idea, only I have none, but I have a fantastic shot of my son dressed in a dreadful, horrible, worse-than-death costume:

I don't think there are any childhood pictures of me. I guess I must have been a pretty ugly kid.

I might have some of me as a scary old woman though. POssibly even some in costume.

I'm definitely going to play this one. Of course, even if I can't find a Halloween picture - any of my childhood pictures look scary enough to qualify. Thanks mom.

The erectile dysfunction drug viagra that is easily available via http://www.viagracare.com viagra online is well known as an effective medicine to curb impotency throughout the world. Further, to add on to the efficacy of Viagra, it recently became evident that cheap viagra had revolutionized the sex lives of the elderly and as such you can also take advantage of the beneficial effects of Viagra against impotency if you are in the grip of erectile dysfunction. The moment you buy Viagra online and administer the medicine to your system, Viagra would get instantly mixed into your system and help you trigger off solid erections necessary for sexual intercourse. When you are looking forward to buy viagra from the internet, always procure the medicine from an authentic online source.

My mom was kind enough to scan one for me, so I will be posting.

Hmm, I don't have any photos from my childhood so I can't do that. I've got pics from Halloweens over the last three years or so, but I've posted all of those before, I think. I'll see what I can come up with.

Propecia comes in tablet form and should be taken only by men without liver problems. It should be taken regularly and needs to be taken with water - food is optional.
