You lose. I win. Or in my own story, it would be. If I were fiction.

Oh wow, it's been a while since I last posted! I need to post at lest two more times before the end of the much to reach my goal, huh?

Halloween is on it's way!

What are you dressing up as?

I'm trying to be Alucard, but I don't think I'll be able to do that...I can't find his coat. Wah! Anybody have a long, red coat?

One a slightly different track, what kind of Halloween do you like? I like cool Halloweens with amazing decorations, food, and costuming. Lots of games too! I also love it when Halloween is cute. Little kids running around as pumpkins and butterflies and just looking so ADORABLE as they trick or treat. What's not to love about it?

One thing I greatly dislike about Halloween, which some people might say I'm against the main point of Hallowen, is the scary parts. I hate the fear factor of the whole thing. All the horror movies and scare houses and gross-ness. Please, keep away, thank you.

I am a very easily freaked out person. I had nightmares over Legend of Sleep Hollow WISHBONE-style when I was a child. I am that pathetic, yes. I do not like. At all.

Really, blood and guts aren't that bad...when they're in war settings like Lord Of The Rings. But when someone is being a freaky chainsaw man, that's just...uh, no.

Another problem is that I'm high empathetic. It's easy for me to imagine things that I hear. Listening to torture is really, really freaky, because my brain automatically starts trying to make me feel the same things. I will happily stick to Harry Potter and feel like I'm playing Quidditch.

So yes, I much prefer traditions of running house to house and getting candy and being cute, or even just cool. It's much more preferable! Another thing I love is how cheap candy is after Halloween. Hello, yes please, I don't care if it's late, candy is candy!

One book I just have to mention is Ray Bradbury's 'The Halloween Tree'. I found this book in the Athens Library last year, one of those limited/special editions. Signed copy and it had all the various drafts and notes he wrote. The story itself was brilliant, as all Bradbury stories are. It's a must read, especially around this time of the year. Get a mug of warm apple cider (not hot chocolate, it's not really that kind of book), sit next to a window where you can see all the leaves change color, and enjoy!

I'm going to be a pregnant woman this year. Think it'll go over well at my work party?

LOL, yes, that'd be amusing. XDD Though, you'd have to make it just a little more crazy then just "I'm pregnant."
