Further proof Martha Stewart has lost her marbles

I can't remember why I signed up to get Martha's newsletter, but now that I'm on the list, I can't get off it, despite numerous requests. Maybe I'll just give up and keep getting the damned thing, as it's often good for a laugh.

For instance, here's what I'm not going as for Halloween. I particularly won't be going as the jellyfish.

Jim, Is it because you would pop all the bubble wrap tendrils by the time you got to the party?

Damn, it would be easier to SEW than to geri-rig those bat wings.

MsYvone said...

And, what is the genesis of "geri-rig"?

God Is My Codependent said...

Sheesh. Why don't you just jump in a garbage can and go as a bag of trash?

Debbie, it's actually spelled "jury-rig," and comes from an outdated meaning of the word "jury," which could mean "makeshift."

It is not to be confused with the Jheri Curl, especially if you are making a 1970s blaxploitation movie.

So the banana didn't hang around long enough to become a clarion?

I may use that.

See, I knew you'd know. ~ If you use a WHITE trashbag, wala. White Trash. It's been done, but its funny. I might resurrect my "little Debbie", except this time, she does Dallas.

Meh. I like these costume ideas better.

God Is My Codependent said...

Little Debbie Does Dallas?? I...I...I need to go lie down.

Jim, I edited those how-tos, the first time they ran.

What a pain in the patootie!
