Dear Carmen Sandiego,

Where in the world is....
CARMEN SANDIEGO?

HIT IT ROCKAPELLA!


Please tell me you know who Carmen is? I needed to figure out a costume very very last minute... and when my Mom suggested Carmen it sounded perfect. I ran to Walmart to get some red spray paint and DI to get a red blazer and briefcase. Then I rushed home to spray paint my straw floppy hat red. Then all I needed was a black shirt, black leggings, and boots. Perfect, all part of my current wardrobe. And there it is Carmen. Then Adam came home from class I showed him my costume, really excited, and he said, "Um... who is Carmen Sandiego?" To which I responded, "WHAT?! She only had a tv show and a computer game (thank you Sawtooth Elementary for that game which filled my computer lab hours!), how do you not know who she is!?" And Adam said, "Well... I was reading books." And I said, "Well, I was traveling the world with Carmen!" So this brings me back to the first question... PLEASE tell me you know who Carmen is!?



The costume was a HUGE hit at work. Everyone there knew who I was, which made me happy. And I got to wear gloves and red lipstick all day. Plus, I took second in the cosutme contest, which means prizes! Lucky me. What were you for Halloween?

Love,
Deidre

I know what you speak of, and your costume is grand! Mine was Black Widow -- because what girl wouldn't want to hang out with the truly Marvel-ous A-team, huh? :)
