Ghouls and Goblins

It's Friday...savor and devour it.

I'm on the fence about buying Halloween candy this year. I'm in a new place so I don't know if I can expect to see any goblins with greedy eyes and empty sacks. Chances are that I would be stuck with 10lbs of sugar. My neighbor carved an awesome pumpkin with a wide mouth, eating a smaller pumpkin (who carries a look of horror on his face).

The skies are overcast and the air is cool. I'm ready for some Halloween movies this weekend, curled up on my sofa with my favorite blanket. I've got a few books lined up. I also have a chair to assemble. I would say the majority of the furniture I have purchased, I put together. What happened to the good ol' days when you could buy a chair already made?

"IMMORTALS" - Coming out 11-11-2011, I hope this is a good movie. The visuals looks awesome and if it's IMAX, I'll be all over that.

Halloween isn't what it used to be. Most kids go to functions days prior, and a lot of the candy is discarded for fear of tampering. I think its funny that so many grown kids who have a drivers license are showing up at the door. People carve happy pumpkins and the true horror movies don't hit the airwaves like they used to around this time of year.

I still remember when my neighbors made homemade caramel apples and cookies and passed them out in ziplock bags. And you better believe you thought you were the shit when someone put a full sized candy bar in your bag. Fun size didn't exist, so a lot of the loot was suckers and tootsie rolls. Still, it's a unique holiday that it's unfortunate many countries miss out on. Anyone who has been to a grown up Halloween party knows what I'm talking about.

Happy Halloween weekend!
