Again with The Question

Killer Weather and an extra hour of sleep made for a rockin good Sunday Morning Church of Skatin. Slight head-ache from the 2nd Hand Nicotine Haze from the Frank Black show at Headliners on Sat., but manageable. Brett, Kyle, Mark, Kidzilla - and even Nick who didn't think he could make it cuz of the long-ass, post-midnite Indy to LouKy haul. But, he did cuz he got that aforementioned extra hour of sleep.

Nick was hell-bent on 50-50in' the 6 ft corner. His 'tude was infectious and eventually we all hit it. But it was short lived. The Crete Giveth and The Crete Taketh away. Still a bad-ass time at the park. Kidzilla got a dose of thru-the-pad-road rash and was bummin. So we struck out for the crib in search or Band-Aids.

But Sunday still had plenty-o-fun in store: Brinley's 5th Annual Halloween Bash!

I was stoked about this party since I got the invite. Even more so cuz I been readin Kidzilla 'Captain Underpants'and I had the perfect, easily-made, highly comfortable costume in mind. It actually started as a joke and I told Kidzilla I was going to be Captain Underpants for the party. He begged (goaded?) me until it was a done deal. Plus it had the added factor of making Nick a little nauseous. So I did it.

I was banking on Nick to be there when I showed up to get the instant, ice-breaking guffaw. Unfortunately, only Eric and his family full of people without children in the Captain Underpants demographic (boys, ages 6-12), so the costume was more frightening than funny. But, hey, being scary is what Halloween is all about.

Eventually, more people showed up that got the joke, but trepidation to talk to the guy in his underwear still hung heavy in the air. But it was was when Amber made her husband, Eric's co-worker Aziz (sorry, if I spelled that wrong), cuddle up to Captain Underpants for a photo that the universe, once again, became a beautiful place. After the photo Aziz and I chatted and made nice while he tried to ignore my underwear. He said he worked with Eric. I said I knew Eric from skateboarding. That's when Aziz said the magic words, "Skateboarding? Are you guys professionals?"

I went home a happy man!

BTW: Nick was an Ant with an "Adam" name tag, escorted by a very silky, sexy Red Riding Hood.

Thanks, EB, for a killa par-tay! And, in the words of Captain Underpants, "Never underestimate the Power of Underwear!"

    I had no idea Capt. Underpants was REAL!!! I thought for sure that was just an idea in Skidz head - a reason to be almost nekked in public! And yes, very frightening. You couldn't look away. It was excrutiating. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to witness that Eric. 'Preciate it. At least the food and other company was great EB.

    But also of note was PapaBrins apparent disdain for Eric's new "hobby." He was none too pleased with your ankle injury from playing with a useless wooden toy. The words "we're gonna put a stop to that" were even uttered. Which I found amusing considering he helped with the party and seemed generally supportive, not to mention the fact that you're 30! And grounding really isn't much of a detterent once you move out... but I digress. I mentioned that I did the same thing, and my prevention technique is now only skate in high tops... but I'm not sure that consoled him at all... Good luck convincing him Eric. :)

    A great weekend of "shoodabakedfirst" shows and Halloween festivities, with just enough rippage to make it perfect. See ya next weekend...

    You RULE Skidzilla. That is so F-ing funny (especially that u walked in and only family were there HaHa!). Wish I coulda made it out for the session and the party. I felt it would have been bad karma to not go biking with with my old man since I skipped out on him last weekend to skate and he lives for the weekly bike rides. I was hoping to go biking Saturday and then skate with you all on Sunday but it was just too damn windy Saturday. Hopefully this coming weekend will be a go for Daville, followed the next weekend of course by ROADTRIP MAYHEM. More on that soon.

    Aw jeez, did he tell you the whole "saw the board in half" story? I *knew* I shouldn't leave him alone with you guys :P The problem is I moved back home a few weeks ago so I *am* grounded. D'oh!

    (Not really, but the thought of being grounded at age 32 makes me laugh pretty hard)

    Yeah, thanks for making the party, 'cretins! It was a rockin' good time. Everyone did a fine job with their costumes. And here are some more pix...

    Damn!! Super-babe is HOT (sorry if that's someone's girlfriend, oops). I like the shot where everyone seems to be staring at Capt. Underpants's underpants area (check out Nick's face in that one, HaHa!) Nice pics Brinley. Sorry I missed it.
