He Should Have Come to My Door

I think Sam makes a great Dwight K. Schrute from The Office:

And, then there’s his side-kick, iPod Touch:

P1080190  ipodtouch

 

Ready to head out (but not together, of course):

P1080191

Sam and his posse:

Jim, Dwight & Andy (Yes, my son is short. Or his friends are giants):

P1080196

Emma and her crew:

M&M, iPod & TV:

P1080187 

Meanwhile, my best friend and confidant, Dean Karnazes, dressed as Phidippides (first marathoner) for the 2,500 anniversary of the marathon. He had told me he was going to do this when he and I ran together (name dropping). He said that he would honor the anniversary by dressing up and eating what Phidippides would have eaten (fruits, nuts, berries), and no doubt pooping them out (he didn’t say this, but I thought it).  I wish he would’ve come trick or treating at my door. Goodness. I am speechless. Those legs. Seriously.:

In case you were wondering, I dressed as a depressed runner with a hip stress fracture who eats a lot of candy, drinks a lot of wine and sulks (unpictured).

Pouting,

SUAR

  2. Love the Dwight costume. Good stuff.

    Your boy Dean looks like he's been eating too much candy. Body fat creeping up to .02%. Slacker.

    Copied parts of your costume this year ... the candy and the booze. Sorry I didn't give you credit.

  4. We just watched The Office Halloween ep. on Hulu last night - gah those 3 look classic! Did they do impressions, too? ;)

    And holy, Dean. Jeebus.

  9. Oh my gosh - he does make a GREAT Dwight! And it is even better that he and his friends went as a theme. I bet people loved them.

    I also think Emma's iPod touch is adorable . . . . As long as there was no touching going on. !!!!!

    I just finished off a bottle of Murphy-Goode chardonnay last evening while attending to the trick-or-treaters. I had opened it the night before . . . . I think I drank that bottle a little too quickly. And I had my Witches hat on!

  15. Cute costumes - and very cool that you got to run with Dean!

    I decided recently that for my next marathon, I'm going to upload Ultramarathon Man to my ipod shuffle to listed to out on the course. Better motivation than any music.

  16. Dear Baby Jesus,
    Please let me one day have a family as cool as Beth's. Oh, and please don't let my children be lazy and dumb. Beth's children are cool and not lazy and not dumb. So if you make mine lazy and dumb, I will resent Beth, and you.

    Amen

  20. Kids in our neighborhood did not do well this year with their costumes, I was very disappointed. Dewight, I mean Sam, on the other had looks great! And so does Emma! You were one busy depressed runner mamma this Halloween!

    Man, looking at Dean never gets old!

  29. Hey, you should've go as the coolest blogger around who's not afraid of anything - inspires her friends constantly, is funny, has piercing blue eyes, arm candy and toes so long they could be fingers. Oh - add in a great cook, mother, social worker and former 7-11 working black jack dealer who's biggest fan lives in Virginia.

  31. How can those 3 little guys look so much like dwight, andy and jim? I LOVE it. They did such a good job. (Dwight- by far the best, he has the expression down perfectly!!)

    ReplyDelete
  32. He makes an adorable dwight! He should have worn the GIANT name tag that Jim made him because he was a "security threat" that said Dwight Fart Schrute. LOL! (I watch too much of The Office, I know."

    I played a bitter old hag on halloween, we didn't have any trick or treaters, though.

    Thanks for the pic of Dean. That made my day better.
