My Halloween This Year

10.31.2008



I am oh so grateful today for rain! It has finally rained here after six months of living here. What a perfect gift to finally make it feel like fall for Halloween. I get to wear my wellies, sweaters, and hats. Last night Ceej and I watched one of my very favorite movies, "The Corpse Bride". Love that Tim Burton, and his beautifully dark films. It put me in the perfect ghoulish mood.


Started reading Bram Stoker's Dracula a couple of weeks ago to put me in the frightening mood. It's my first book of a tradition I'm starting...each October I read a classic "horror" book. Next year it will be "Frankenstein", "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", or something else that will scare my heart out of my chest. Loving Dracula. I'm not going to finish tonight though...we're moving to a different apartment this weekend so I'll be boxing and cleaning.


Costume: Early twentieth-century paper boy handing out "papers" which will really be Nader literature!! The costume itself is pretty boring, but here's my reasons:
1- I'm usually a creature from Middle Earth or a character from a Brother's Grimm story--those costumes are all boxed up, and I don't want them getting wet in the rain anyway.
2-I have the clothes for a paper boy for some reason, and they'll be warm.
Now I just need a party to go to!

I love it! Corpse Bride is AWWWWWSOME! My kids love IT too, and Nightmare Before Christmas. It's all we've been watching the last couple weeks!

I'm a Bollywood dancer, but have no party either! :( I'm still gonna do it for the trick-or-treaters!

Happy Halloween!

Love your tradition idea! I was going to pick up an Anne Rice but didn't get to it. :( Next year!
