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.
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.
