Secret Sin

Everybody's got a secret Sonny
Something that they just can't face
Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it
They carry it with them every step that they take
Till some day they just cut it loose
Cut it loose or let it drag 'em down

-Bruce Springsteen

Time to cut it loose. Reveal my secret.

Last year, when Kevin Charnas and his fiance, Wil, had the world's most bestest Halloween/blogger party, I dressed as an internet troll.

Thinking of the qualities that most embody "troll" I decided to go with ugly, stupid, and badly dressed. Voila:

The Billy Bob teeth and the GW Bush t-shirt were nice touches, but the part of this hideous outfit you can't see are the pants. They are these flowered fleecy size 17x sweat pants that are normally not seen outside of a Wal-Mart on a Saturday afternoon.

Everyone got quite the laugh at my outfit, and when I came home, I threw most of it out. But I kept one thing:
Knees and Goldie head

Yes, I wear them. No, not outside of the house! But I have to say, no matter how retina-damagingly ugly they are, they are pretty comfy to lounge around in. Maybe I will get brave and wear them to the swap meet next time I go.

Ha! those do look like comfy pants!

Just say some Hail Mary's and you can wear the pants.

Not the teeth, though.

Don't you feel better having confessed that? You are resolved of all wrongdoing. No go and buy bad-print-pants no more!

Hell yeah you should keep them! around the house is fine, just don't answer the door in them. It will be Ed McMahon and the entire country will see you in them.

I do hope you trashed the W shirt though.. perhaps in some nice little effigy burning ceremony.

Don't wear them to the swap meet! Everyone will be jealous!! I love being comfy. Life's too short to be uncomfortable!! Good for you! Your secret is safe with us!!

Honestly, Darlin'- the bigotry and ugliness of spirit just shone through. You could have given the teeth a miss...

I am following you on Twitter now because of your comment on the troll post.
TOO funny.
Do trolls HAVE to be anonymous? Is it a rule?

Belinda said...

Yes. They must. After all, if you used your identity, you couldn't be freed up for unlimited trollishness like the above prime example! Also, Dubya supporters are sensitive about their poor hygiene, and understandably embarrassed in general right now.

Oh honest to Pete. That "anonymous" commenter is an ass. The costume was hilarious, teeth and all.

There will be 1,000 people at BlogHer and I have to work while I'm there, so I'm asking ahead of time if you would like my cell # so we can meet up. I want to see you, and I want my photo taken with the stapler! :P best email is table4five(at)gmail.com. xoxo
