Man, I love getting a brat and turkey leg when I'm at Oktoberfest. It hasn't been a real Oktoberfest if I haven't had a turkey leg!
I've started to go the economical route of Halloween costumes. Try to get stuff that makes sense to wear other days, or reusable costumes, etc. For example, I've done a Jedi costume a few times, that I've reused for Star Wars premiers. Plus, the pants and shoes are just khaki jeans and knock off Sperry's, so I can wear those all the time haha
That reminds me though, I put together a thing where once per week, we're screening a Star Wars movie after work here at the office. Today's the 2nd one, so we're on Episode II: Attack of The Clones. We're going through all the Star Wars movies, finishing up just before the premier of Rise of Skywalker.
Believe me, these cars have a habit of growing on their owners. Your feelings will only strengthen over time...
