Well, folks, it's that time of year again: that precious, precious time when I get to dress up as much as I want, and no one can tell me I'm "overdressed", because it's Halloween - yay! And this year, as with last year, we have two costume parties to attend: one on the Saturday just gone, and one next Saturday, which means you have another one of these posts to look, er, forward to next week. I know, sorry. Anyway! Although I love to use Halloween as an excuse to get completely and utterly overdressed, I also have to work around the fact that I'm completely and utterly lazy. With these two points in mind, I had actually decided fairly early on that I would dress up as Marilyn Monroe for our first party: not just because I hear blondes have more fun, but because I thought it would be relatively easy. "Why, all I'll need will be a white dress and a blonde wig," I thought, "And I bet I won't even need to search for the white dress, because if I mention it enough times, my mum will probably find one for me!" And she did. Thanks, mum! With the white dress in the bag, then (literally: my mum altered it for me and then put it in a bag) I pretty much sat back and did absolutely nothing to prepare for my transformation into the world's most famous blonde. I knew from my search for an appropriate Lady Gaga wig last year that eBay is just full of Marilyn Monroe wigs, and they're even labelled "Marilyn Monroe wig", just to make it even easier for lazy-asses like me. So confident was I that nothing could possibly go wrong with this, then, that I waited until just a week before the party before I hopped onto eBay and bought the first cheapest wig I could find. Then I sat back and resumed doing nothing, until the wig arrived and I realised it looked more like a blonde version of Little Orphan Annie's hair than Marilyn Monroe's. Whoops. As for Terry:
