So pretty, I killed the camera…

Our friends Brian and Victoria held their third annual Halloween costume party yesterday. Cindy and Erin came up with the inspired idea that Cindy and I would go as Major Tony Nelson and Jeannie from “I Dream of Jeannie”, with the gender roles switched of course. So while Cindy got to lounge around in her brother’s old Air Force blues, I was “pretty in pink” with a complete costume provided by our seamstress friend Laura. I think the boys are young enough that they won’t be permanently scarred by the experience!


Of course, these are the last photos that our camera took that night, as the shocking images caused it to convulse and seize up with awful clicking and whirring noises. We await our friends’ photos from the evening’s festivities with bated breath! My costume was judged “most funniest” by our peers, which is good, but just a little short of Cindy’s “best overall” award last year for her high school prom outfit.

P.S. After a little research this evening, I was able to determine that some leaf dust had most likely settled in the lens barrel, causing the malfunction. Fortunately the most expedient fix worked, that being a couple of sharp knocks to the side of the camera.

  1. Laura says:

    Shocked, SHOCKED that it did not get best overall. I think the chest hair makes the outfit.

  2. Dad says:

    what – no naval ring? “Jeanie” was one of your grand dad’s favorite shows. I’m not sure Mom shared that appreciation. She probably would have enjoyed your version more…
