I’m going to do a for real post this week, because HOMELAND. Seriously…..Homeland. But in the meantime, a brief post about Halloween.

I wasn’t always into this holiday, until I realized I could use it as an excuse to make pop culture references. Preferably obscure pop culture references that no one really gets, but not necessarily. In the past few years, my costumes have included Regina George from Mean Girls, Enid Coleslaw from Ghost World and Anxiety Girl from the Natalie Dee web comic.

This year I decided to outdo myself. And by outdo myself, I mean I decided to dress up as a minor character from a television show that aired for two seasons in the early ’90s. Yes, I went as the Log Lady from Twin Peaks. No one knew who I was (except for my friends who I’ve been describing the Log Lady to for the last year). I still told them my log had something to tell them. Everyone was appropriately annoyed.

Twin Peaks may not be topical, but it’s still a great show. It was brave enough to go for a really long time without revealing the mystery at its core. And even after that, it was still totally weird, dealing with lots of supernatural themes and focusing on developing all the quirky characters in a weird little town. Of course, I’m a sucker for David Lynch, so of course I love that show, even though I have to admit the second season went a bit too far off the rails at times.

Anyway, clearly I had to pay homage to this long-ago cancelled show. I think I did a pretty good job, too! Check it out:

RIGHT?? Happy Halloween, y’all.
