As I wake up from a dream in which I lived on a commune yet everyone despised me, looking at this picture made me feel a bit less despised.
This is Halloween 2003, in which I had just moved to New York from Washington, D.C. to attend grad school. My friend Erin, back left, decided to dress up as me for Halloween. Apparently everyone at the party in D.C. recognized her costume immediately, apparently due to:
-wearing stripes (which I did a lot in the early ‘aughts)
-I believe she is also wearing shiny jeans (guys it was the early ‘aughts)-several necklaces at once
-carrying a stuffed cat (I had just adopted my first cat and talked about him incessantly)
