Happy Birthday Aaron!!!
My brother, who lives in Pitt, PA, was a theatrical parrot. What an awesome costume!
Our Halloween weekend (Karel's first ever Halloween to dress up!):
When: Fri night
Where: Laura's house
What: Karel - Real Housewife of Jacksonville, FL
Marni - Cheetah Girl
Campy - Bumble Bee (homemade wings and antenna)
Favorite part of the evening: When Campy and Beethoven saw each other in their costumes. Also, when Karel took his first ever jello shot and 2nd and 3rd :) I guess Karel missed out not living in America during his college years :)
When: Sat night
Where: Shawn's house (our coach)
What: Karel - Farris Al-Sutan (honestly, this was all Karel's idea. Too bad we didn't have a speedo that fit Karel because he was totally wanting a speedo for the night. Perhaps he just enjoyed making fun of triathlets since he is wearing all of my gear and he thinks we all dress like that at triathlons).
Marni - Jazzercise instructor from the 80's.
Favorite part of the evening: Walking into Shawn's house and every triathlete instantly knowing who Karel was impersonating. Aside from his bib number with Faris on it, he made it a little obvious when he was talking in German as he was introducing himself. We all laughed when he was drinking a beer out of his Gatorade bottle which was in the back of his shorts. Also, seeing the dog bomber costume and of course, Lady Gaga. I can't wait to see all of these guys back on their bikes. I am used to everyone wearing spandex and a helmet and I am a little worried about all of the guys I saw this weekend wanting to dress like women.
