Oh noes! What you dressed up as for my Halloween party

More Halloween meme-ing, before I disappear into a short G/E story idea that I had while soaking in a Green Day bubble bath just now. (And oddly, it really is all background prep work for the NaNo project. No, really! It's not procrastination!)

The seed was that I dressed as Tim Wakefield. Because knuckleballs are cool.

What or who is the Duke of Morgraf? Hmmmm, I don't have a costume yet, this year....
did you ever have a "Native" license plate?
Ha! Another coloradan in the milling crowd! I was born and raised in Broomfield, which is the only town of that name in the country. Other than that, it is unremarkable. It is also downwind from Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant, which might explain quite a lot about me.

Remember the Orange Crush years?

ah, sigh...

Re: did you ever have a "Native" license plate?
Well, the old haunts have surely changed. Aurora, once the southern fringe, is now smack in the middle of a gigantic southward sprawl that reaches almost to Castle Rock. There is this huge area called Highlands Ranch that started it, and the new toll road that circles it.

Denver itself has changed for the better. The downtown in particular, with the mall, the museums, and the zoo. And let us not forget the great shrine of all things fabulous that is The Tattered Cover, the nation's largest independent book store. It has it's own six story building now in Cherry Creek. You should go back and have a look.
Woodrow Wilson, eh? I suppose I could just part my hair in the middle, then lie down, and call myself "Woodrow Wilson after his stroke."

sometimes I am callous and strange
What is up with this 'Snow-wave' stuff? The same thing came up at agilesreader's Halloween party. I don't know if I should be pleased, afraid, or impressed.
ooh, I am factored as myself and one...
Wow! I've never been Prime before. Well, that's not exactly true, because I have occasionally been a prime number of years old. I will be in a couple of weeks, actually, this next birthday is prime. Right now I am divisible by 2, 6, 7, and 21.

But the Optimus part gets me. Does that make me a Caesar or a planet? Is there a plain Optimus to go with the Optimus Prime?

I think this is a costume that will have to include an extravagant mustache and the ability to spit melon seeds accurately to 20 paces. And a vest with a watch-pocket presently inhabited by a fractal mouse. And bright blue high-top tennies and a hat with a white plume a la Cyrano de Bergerac...

I'm sure BPAL has a scent to go with this.
