 What are you going to be this year for Halloween?

As most people had seen on HalLAWeen night, I was the eternal roman gladiator, a Spartacus for the people, and a warrior that puts Russell Crowe’s best to shame.

Describe the best Halloween costume you have ever had or have ever seen. 

Since I like talking about myself, I will just talk about my best costume. Back when I was an impressionable 20-year-old, I went as “Twister”, the game. I wore white pants and shirt, and cut out big green, blue, yellow, and red circles from poster paper. These circles were placed “strategically” all over me, and I grabbed the real twister spinner board. I would walk up to a group of girls and ask if the wanted to play “me”… the rest was history.

How does this holiday compare to some of the others for you?

This holiday, as you say, really has a big dichotomy between under the age of 14/15, and over. Up to when I was about 14, my sole mission on Halloween was to acquire as much candy as possible. Candy candy candy. But these days, it is ALL about the costumes (or lack thereof).

What was the strangest/grossest Halloween treat you have ever been given as a kid?

Oh boy, where do I begin? Religious pamphlets, carrots, and a bouncy ball are high up there. One time I got offered a tuna sandwich at the door…not exactly up my alley.  Tootsie rolls, the horrible lollipops (you know what kind I’m talking about), and cheesies were also items I wasn’t fond of.

Are you a salty or sweet treat kind of person?

Yes.

Did you carve a pumpkin this year or participate in any other fun Halloween traditions?

I saw lots of other people’s pumpkin carvings on Facebook…that counts right? I’m not sure what other Halloween traditions there are… I definitely did not watch any scary movies, but I did have tiger ice cream!

What are you going to be this year for Halloween?

Wacky, Waving, Inflatable, Arm-Flailing, Tube Man!

Describe the best Halloween costume you have ever had or have ever seen. 

See Answer #1. Or maybe zombie veggies… I was a carrot!

Not the best but definitely the best at predicting the future:  I went as Facebook in 2006 by designing a profile and wall that I wore like a sandwich board, complete with permanent markers for people to post all over it. The problem? My insane dancing ability destroyed the costume and left me as a, shall we say, “sexy” human white board. It ruined my one life goal to never dress as a “sexy” Halloween anything and, more importantly, Facebook completely failed to protect my privacy when I chose to employ it for social means. Sound familiar?

How does this holiday compare to some of the others for you?

Well, let’s see, at Christmas I drown myself in rum and eggnog so I don’t have to talk to my god-awful family.* And I can never enjoy Thanksgiving because I’m just always so sad about the turkeys. And Valentine’s Day? Don’t even get me started unless you like the thought of me in pyjamas watching Hugh Grant movies, eating my feelings, and crying myself to sleep. So yeah, Halloween is pretty not bad.

* Just kidding, I love my family. We drink rum and eggnog together.

What was the strangest/grossest Halloween treat you have ever been given as a kid?

Ohhhh we don’t need to go there.

Are you a salty or sweet treat kind of person?

I feel like this is a trick question. Can’t it be both? Do I have to choose? HAVE THOSE GRANOLA BARS BEEN LYING TO ME ALL ALONG?!

Did you carve a pumpkin this year or participate in any other fun Halloween traditions?

No pumpkins, but I did curl up to watch a batch of horrid horror movies, followed by one that blew my mind: Dale & Tucker vs. Evil. I know this interview doesn’t scream ‘Credible Advice Kelly’ but seriously: go check out this film without researching it first. You’ll thank me later.
