BPB to PG: I was thinking of a Halloween Sunday Project but then I couldn't think of anything. Should we do a 'How to throw your own JW Halloween party'?? I'll need your help on the pics!! I want Jake as Casper the Friendly Ghost.
PG: Heh. Jake as Casper the Friendly Ghost! I'll see what I can come up with. What else were you thinking? Snacks? Decorations? Guests?
BPB: I'm not sure where I was actually going with my party idea - guests are a good idea. We need to draw up the fully-approved JW party guest list that covers the entire party spectrum. Erm, Jake gingerbread men or cakes or something? Song list....erm....what else?
PG: Slight problem. The media section of IHJ is down. I wound up just sticking a Casper mask on Jake because the logistics of making him look like a cartoon/computer-generated ghost was more than I could do without some serious time to work on it. I also did one of trying to make him look ghost-like, which might actually work since The Gilded Moose killed him off in the last post. Neither is my best work but it was all I could come up with. I like the second one better.
BPB: Something about Casper's head on Jake's body is funny - can you try it the other way around - Jake's head on Casper's body? I'm imagining it already and it's sweet.
PG: How's that? Totally ridiculous, I know, but it is, indeed, Jake's head on Casper's body. Casper is so oddly proportioned.
After a discussion in which britpopbaby decided she would be going as a pirate to our party and I decided to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the episode "Prophecy Girl"...
BPB: Do you remember when Seth Green was in Buffy (obviously you do!!) I had THE biggest crush on him and then found out he was only 5 ft 4 and went off him.
PG: Heh. Yes, I remember when Seth Green was on Buffy. I have Oz action figures. You don't need to spread that around. He is disappointingly short, though. I was always a Spike girl myself and had a similar letdown when I found out he was 40, and not 28 as he'd been telling everyone. Creepy.
BPB: I also forgot how damn cute Sarah Michelle Gellar is. I have no idea where I'm going with this Halloween post - it might help if Jake had ever made a scary movie. Damn him!
PG: I feel like this should have been easier and yet it seemed at every turn something was hindering the process. Maybe God was trying to tell us something.
BPB: I'll give some serious thought to the Halloween post tonight - I might go with Ghost Jake although some people may misinterpret it and think we're saying he's dead.
After all that, the post that britpopbaby wound up publishing on Jake Watch for Halloween had absolutely nothing to do with anything we talked about, and is HERE.
And that's why Jake Watch wore us out.
(THIS is the post I put up the following year.)
