Was telling Ant about going to Value Village today, where they have the Halloween costumes out, and of course there’s the usual array of “Sexy _____” for women (including Sexy Mario and Sexy Luigi, which I think has to win some sort of award for most inappropriate).
Anyway, he asked me if they had “Sexy Old Man,” which THEY TOTALLY SHOULD. I said that would obviously have to come with a toy accordion and black glasses, and he said, “Don’t forget the fake bad teeth!” and you know what? I think they do have those—they call them, like, “Hillbilly Teeth” or something like that. Well WHATEVER.
And then I was sad, because I could totally dress up like John if I didn’t have this damn ridiculous thick curly hair (I’ve certainly never seen a floppy-hair wig—THEY CANNOT REPLICATE JOHN’S HAIR BECAUSE IT IS TOO AMAZING) and if I still had my pair of glasses like his. I already have an accordion and, like, half his wardrobe, soooooooooooo.
John ramblin’ zine series (looks like it’s gonna be three issues) is now 2/3 done. Can hopefully finish up tonight—the second third went a good bit faster than the first third. Some COFFEE is gonna be required though (eternally grateful to The Johns for teaching me that coffee makes it approximately a zillion times easier to accomplish, like, anything).
