Samhain Part Two

Tonight was the Witches' Ball, and I was in a much darker mood when it came to the facepaint. A dark mood due in large part to having been rejected or ignored by every match I initiated communication with on Eharmony.
Najah's costume was also darker than yesterday, because it's Day of the Dead, and we were going out at night.
The Ball was attended by Kali, Isis, the GreenMan, Caesar & Cleopatra, lots of faeries, goblins & witches, a fallen angel, pirates, refugees from the Renaissance Faire and two flying monkeys. We drank & danced, and then left with Najah's friend Gretchen to go to the Thin Man, for their Day of the Dead party. Which they turned out to not be having this year, because of Halloween falling on a Friday. However, we did get a standing ovation for being in costume from some rather tipsy young people who had dressed up and were feeling out of place. After couple more drinks and some in-depth conversation, we went in search of food and ended up at an all-night diner at about 12:30. We were not the only people in costume; apparently McCoy's is the place for after-party dining.

Here I am, wingless, worn-out, and crushed by my bustier at one am. Up way past my bedtime, but very content.

Hey its great to finally put the face with the words, even if that face is shrouded in a mysterious black painted mask :) LOVE your earrings, your whole costume in fact is very fall festive. Sleep deprived or not glad to hear you both had a great time!

eHarmony has wreaked havoc on many peoples' self-esteem for either the reason you gave or because the site itself rejected them. Don't let it get to you, I've read your blog long enough to know that you're a wonderful person with a lot to offer. If some fool on eHarmony doesn't see that, it's their loss.

That being said, I'm glad you had a good time even though you were in a dark mood at the beginning. =)

Thanks ladies! What's funny is that according to eharmony's lengthy personality profile, I'm a lovely person, but nobody gets to see those upfront, just your answers to a bunch of questions about passions, interests, etc. This experience has been more about risk-taking, so, mission accomplished. It didn't cost me any money to find out that eharmony doesn't work for me, so yay.

I heart halloween. I spent this year on an airplane flying to Edmonton, so I'm glad that you had fun for the both of us! :) Great costume!
