Calvin, Hobbes and Princess Leia walk into a Halloween party …


Yeah, so, we went to a Halloween party on Saturday. I wore a costume: A costume that people found difficult to believe that I have never worn before.

I don’t know why it took me so long to dress up as Princess Leia, but for some reason I decided this was the year. I think I look more like Liz Lemon trying to get our of jury duty than Princess Leia, but the costume was a hit.

As for the Spawn, we only have another year or so before he starts telling us what he wants to be for Halloween. For now, we decide, and we decided for this party he would be Hobbes, and mighty, mighty good man David would be Calvin. I know, right? Clever.

Of course, the party didn’t really get started until after Game 3 of the World Series was over. Can you see how excited Calvin is that the Giants won Game 3?

Everyone was cheering and jumping up and down around him, and he couldn’t have been more bored. Actually, he was really tired. We are awful parents for keeping him up past his bedtime so we could watch a baseball game at a Halloween party.

On Sunday night, my beloved Giants swept the Tigers (Wooooooooooooooo!), and then “fans” decided to celebrate by setting the city on fire.

Oh, San Francisco, don’t ever change.

I’m not surprised. This is a town that protests when the cops kill an armed man wanted in connection with murdering a pregnant lady. True story. So, setting mattresses on fire when their team wins the World Series sounds about right to me. I debated go out to the fires myself. I have a lot of junk I need to get rid of.

What everyone is going to burn on Halloween? Hopefully, they didn’t set fire to all their mattresses.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Naw, that’s training for real life right there, learning to fall asleep in all the chaos. Congrats on the series win!

  2. I caught the end of the game last night–I was about as impressed as your Calvin. Shame on me, I know.
    I’ve forgotten what year it was–maybe ’89–that I went over to Market Street for a night parade for the 49’ers. Some jerk stole my 49’ers cap and when I asked for it back this guy hauled off and smacked me a good one in the side of the head. I was blinded for a few moments and stumbled around briefly, but learned a lesson about confrontation. Don’t.
