Day 249: Florida

Day 249: Florida



On March 3, 1845, Florida became the 27th state of the United States of America so today I take on Florida as my theme. When I think of Florida, I automatically think of the episode of The Simpsons where Marge has a gambling problem and Homer has to help Lisa make her Florida state costume for school. It turns out so bad that she is chosen out, with Ralph, to win a prize for obviously having made their costume without the help of their parents.

Day 7: Americana

July 4th: Independence Day.  No better fitting theme for today than Americana. So as per my Canada Day homage, I have decided to dress up as my favourite fictional American character: Rex Kwon Do from Napoleon Dynamite. In the paraphrasing of such a great man:

“Take a look at what I’m wearing, people. You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I’m wearing these bad boys? Forget about it.”
