It's not that easy bein' green...

...and I mean that in more ways than one.

I bought some canvas bags from the grocery store so that I could reuse them when I go grocery shopping, and solve the whole paper/plastic dilemma. Except that, predictably, I always forget to bring the bags with me. I've only remembered them once.

For Halloween I decided to embrace my true nature and dress up as the Incredible Hulk. Now, I suppose that I could just buy or rent an Incredible Hulk costume, but for me, half the fun of dressing up for Halloween is creatively putting a costume together. I happened to have a green turtleneck and green tights, which is half the battle right there. So I've been looking for other green accessories to complete the ensemble; I found green gloves and green shoes. Unfortunately I'm having a really hard time finding green socks, or more accurately, I'm having a hard time finding socks that are completely green. I've also been having a hard time finding green make-up, which I didn't think would be that difficult. The problem is that most of the time I can only find a little dab of green in a larger make-up kit, and I don't really want to buy the whole kit. Today I did find a tube of green make-up packaged all by its lonesome, and I bought it, but I don't think it's going to work, because I tried some on as a test, and it's too yellow, especially when it dries. To be candid, it looks like poop. And I really don't want to be walking around looking like I've smeared poop all over my face. So I might have to go and buy the whole kit anyway. The Halloween store should have tester tubes for its make-up, but I suppose then it probably wouldn't sell as much.

Also, one of the consequences of putting together a costume like this is that all my green stuff is in different shades. So I'll be kind of a Motley Hulk.
