Dear Internet,

I keep reading FB status updates and tweets and blog posts about how everyone had a lame Halloween.  Ok, not everyone, but a lot of people are claiming that this year, Halloween left something to be desired.

Well, my darling Internet, I can’t say that my Halloween sucked.  But it certainly wasn’t the best.  So, here’s what I did this Halloween:

  • Marathoned the Halloween episodes of Buffy: Halloween, Fear Itself, All the Way.
  • Watched It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
  • Baked Halloween cookies with black cats and ghosts on them, courtesy of Pillsbury.
  • Gave candy to TWO trick-or-treaters.
  • Napped.

You see, I had fantastical plans to watch scary movies and… well, that was pretty much it.  But Chriso and I went to a haunted house the other night, and that was enough screaming and being scared of things jumping out at me to make me rethink the scary-movie-watching-thing by myself.  I would have nightmares.  No thank you.

So, Internet, I had a rather unproductive Halloween, which may be a good thing.  It was nice and quiet.

I didn’t dress up.  I didn’t celebrate.  I handed out a handful of candy, and I watched TV.

Life is good, dear Internet.  Life is good.
