For those of you who were at my chat today (transcript here for those of you who weren't!) I won't be on the Peter Blute show tomorrow after all. I'll be on it, but not tomorrow.
The topic for the interview, whenever it happens, is Halloween etiquette! Won't that be fun. I don't think I'll be going to any Halloween parties this year (Mr. Improbable and I will be traveling), but I've come up with a GREAT costume idea for next year. Since I'm both a PhD and a cute brunette from Kansas, I thought I could go as "The Professor and Mary Ann." Cut a cheap pair of khakis and a pair of jean cutoffs in half and sew them together. Alter a white oxford so it buttons down on one side and ties into a halter on the other. Slick all my hair back on one side and into a big poofy ponytail on the other, and carry around a science book and a coconut pie.
Isn't that a great idea? Feel free to borrow it, but know that there is no one on the planet who is quite as perfect a blend of those two as am I!
