I don’t say it often, but OMFG!

Today is Halloween, and if you’re anything like me, you’re so excited you want might just jump around until you bust an organ  It’s not the candy.  It’s not the costumes.  Okay, you have no idea what the heck it is.  Maybe just the fascination with death all dolled up in bright colors.  Whatever the explanation, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Go out.  Enjoy.  For every person who sits at home on Halloween and does nothing festive, a fairy dies.  Or a puppy.  Whichever makes you sadder. Seriously. 

As for me, Scott and I are off to NYC for the parade in the Village, where my mother assures us we will be disemboweled by orange and black-clad hooligans.  What better way to celebrate the day where our children roam the streets as walking dead, in search of earthly nourishment?  Reese’s cups beat all in the higherarchy of loot.

    Sex and Death and high fructose corn syrup. If sex is a sin, and the wages of sin are death, is sex tax deductable? Fuck it, I’m suddenly pagan.

    I had religious “Christ”mases growing up so there wasn’t much of that Santa stuff but we did Halloween, which outraged our fundie neighbors who were suspicious of us anyway because we were Catholics. I always wanted to make a Zombie Pope costume and give them apoplexy.

    Speaking of exploding blood vessels, my house has prepared the following Halloween treats for the neighborhood kiddies: Honey-dipped popcorn balls, homemade coconut cookies and… wait for it… caramel covered apples.

    We open the doors at 7pm. Last year the first call to the cops came at around 7:45. We’re hoping to beat the 30 minute mark this year. Go Team!

    Holy crap, I read this too late and now a puppy might be dead at my own hands.

    Ugh. This is what I get for slacking on the ignorance.

    I would eat your caramal covered apple any day. Wait, that sounds wrong. Wait, I don’t care.

    I had no, and I mean NO candy on Halloween because I was holding out for some cool street vendor with caramal apples, and then there was nothing. Not that I didn’t have a delicious margarita instead. And then there’s the half-priced, day-after candy from Target. Okay, all in all, I’ve had plenty of sugar. I heart Halloween!

    When I “did” Haloween back in the mid to late 50’s it was still pretty much “innocent” and free of all the hype and overblown decorating. And, with over twenty years of handing out candy to the little whelps, it became very clear to me that kids nowdays were getting “ripped off” as far as a quality experience or something they would remember years later. I’m sorry but all Halloween seems to be anymore is an excuse for the candy makers and Wal-Mart to push their crap!
