Halloween is coming!! I’m getting in the mood by listening to “Don’t fear the Reaper”, and scary movie soundtracks. Not to mention LPN and the Necromantics. “Haunted Cathouse” must be one of the finest written songs ever.
You know, the best side effect of not having a mirror in the house is the fact that I dance more. I was just boogeying in my seat, and I realized that back in the day, I would dance around, and at some point, catch a glimpse of just how silly I looked. Without a mirror, no reminder, so I just quietly look silly, and love it.
I gave away my candy today. I had bought two big bags, of the good stuff, so that I would be loved and admired on the block. Since it turns out I am heading to CA for the holidays, I didn’t need it. Which meant it would end up in my tummy very soon. So I did the right thing, and gave it to my neighbor across the street (who, by the way, is sporting another black eye, but we don’t talk about such things). I’m missing that chocolate already.
I’m in a very strange, black mood. I’ve been thinking depressing thoughts, death and finances and the like, yet I am completely cheery. I’m relishing it. It’s the perfect halloweeney mood.
Speaking of perfectly halloweeney, how about that eclipse last night? Yeah, that’s all I have to say on the subject. How about that. Eclipses are one of those things that you wander outside, look up, say, “huh, how about that”, and wander back in. In Montana, this time of the year, you wander quickly, as it’s already below freezing. Still, they’re neat.
I fly out tomorrow. My costume is packed, and waiting by the door. Tonight my brain won’t solidify long enough to make a cohesive blog, so I’ll just wish y’all a merry halloween, may lots of sugar and spooks come your way.
