1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    But you could wear a loin cloth and body paint. That would fulfill the first rule of Halloween costumes for females over a certain age.

    I actually basically wore a white bikini top/mini skirt, like the Attack of the 50 Foot Woman poster. No paint, though! I'm slutty, but I'm not that slutty.

    Are you trying to convince us or yourself?

    I was incredibly disappointed by the small number of people who got my Steve Holt costume. To be fair, my wig was awful and looked like a rat's nest on top of my head but yelling out "STEVE HOLT!" still did not help out most people.

    Who is Steve Holt? You kind of look like a bear in your avatar, bro.

    A character in one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, "Arrested Development".

    Edit: A lion - you DID look like a bear on my tiny mobile picture though.

    You should have had a "Memories of Thanksgiving" giftbasket in your hand.

    I think I am going to do Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything this year.
    -Have a trenchcoat (or could thrift up some london fog crap).
    -Sweatpants should be easy to find.
    -Dunno if I can find any dirt cheap white hitops but white sneakers should be ok (maybe something like payless has some crap shoes?)
    -Can't find anything close to the right Clash t-shirt but there's a place here that can custom print shirts pretty quick with no minimums so I will whip one up in photoshop and have them print it...
    -The boombox is going to be tough...will try to hit thrift stores and maybe a stereo repair shop this weekend. There are a few on ebay but most of them are far more expensive than I'd like. Doesn't have to work as I could just strip out the internals and hide an ipod inside...but I did find a copy of the Peter Gabriel album on cassette for $3 which is pretty legit.

    I might redo my spidermensch costume. Last year I went as Steve Jobs but I can't think of anything equally tasteless for 2012.

    I have everything for my Say Anything costume.

    Thrift shops have let me down on the silver 80s boombox... so I bought a more modern boombox just to have something but I am still holding out that I will see a better boombox tonight or tomorrow (damn thrift stores restock too slow!).

    Photoshopped up a nice Clash t shirt and got it printed on a natural colored cotton shirt resembling the one he is wearing in the movie. $10 for a custom printed t shirt with pretty good print quality--not a bad deal.

    I was considering doing Eddie Murphy from Raw or his earlier stand up act (in red leather suit) but I think Tyrone Biggums will be easier.
