10/31/2003 Entry: "Have You A Little Faerie In Your Home?"

Or have you a little Faerie in your workplace? There's something very satisfying about walking down the hallways here in pink and white, my petticoats and wings rustling as I pass by. I go over to the coffee machine and wave my wand; "Faerie coffee kinda sucks," I tell a bemused passerby, "It's all instant." Someone tells me they like my costume. "What costume?" I say, tilting my tiara at them.

I'd like to apologize in advance, because I simply cannot get enough of that joke.

There aren't a lot of people in costume at work this year, no, but I did grin at some clown on the train this morning. I was whistled at by two construction workers, one of whom asked me to "do a little twirl" for him. I was operating on a pre-coffee level, so I had no good response to that. Besides, I was loaded down with all my accessories in my hands and wearing a coat, so it wouldn't have done much good anyway.

But my favorite reaction whenever I'm in costume is always the people who don't see me. Sometimes I catch them looking and they quickly look away, unwilling to acknowledge my existance. That's one of the great things about Halloween; even the somewhat shy, like me, have permission to mess with people's minds in (not-so-)subtle ways. Yes, some days we all want to point a big red angry middle finger at the world; today I'm reminded that it also works just as nicely in a light shade of pink.

(I forgot the cable for my camera, but pictures are forthcoming.)

They'd damn well better be! :)

Serious. We want evidence.
