Is it normal to have so many “Birthday Twins?” I literally know SEVEN other people with my birthday. Okay, okay, I know that A LOT people are born on my birthday each year around the world, but knowing seven well enough to send a greeting seems excessive. (It would have been eight, if I would have sent a birthday message to Julia Roberts, but seven is where I draw the line.) Anyway…I digress. One of my Birthday Twins held a birthday party tonight. Given the fact that it’s also Halloween weekend, costumes were required. I’ve dressed up for Halloween and lots of other themed parties in the past, but the problem now is that I let someone (actually TWO someones) talk me into leaving my costume drawer in storage in the States. WHY did I listen to them?! Thank goodness for Google! I spent quite a bit of time googling “homemade Halloween costumes” looking for easy options, since I had virtually no time to dedicate to creating something. I decided on something that seemed easy enough – not to mention a good description of myself…a TRAVEL BUG! It was more than a little complicated to tape myself into a dress made of maps, but somehow I succeeded. Such a fun evening!
[Happy Birthday to the guest of honor – my Birthday Twin!]
They don’t really do Halloween in Switzerland, so I’m glad I got a chance to celebrate with some American friends!
