My friend Jody had a Halloween party. I'm sure she will post pictures on her blog and when she does, I'll point you to them, but here is the one Kevin got of me and Jody. I am wearing the lighbulb over my head because I went as "a man with an idea". The Japanese people at the party didn't understand this because they understood Halloween to be all about ghosts and monster costumes. Jody kept trying to explain, but her voice kept rising as if they were deaf and she kept saying, "Smart man's costume! Smart man's costume!" I don't think this helped in the explanation of it really, but it was amusing to watch her try to explain.
