Halloween weekend! I always say that I love fall and winter, but I usually have shit luck this time of year. It’s been years since I’ve had a great Halloween. When I was eleven, the week before Halloween, I got caught shoplifting at the local Ben Franklin and I was grounded for what would have been my last year of trick-or-treating.
In high school, my best friend had a Halloween blowout and everyone else left the next morning, but I stuck around and helped her clean up. Well, her parents ended up coming home early and we got caught, my parents were called, and even though I’d had nothing to do with planning the party, I was labeled the ‘bad influence’.
Same goes for Christmas. In high school, I got arrested and the police called my parents at 3am on Christmas Eve. I spent New Year’s babysitting my little sister and as the clock struck midnight, I was watching Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
In college, my boyfriend, whom I thought I was in love with, basically dumped me right after Christmas. We ‘made-up’ for New Year’s but that was just because he wanted to get laid that night. We broke up for real on the 2nd.
This year I am bound and determined to have a good Halloween. I made a costume, but didn’t spend too much time slaving away at it and I don’t care if it gets ruined. I have two Halloween parties to go to and I will refuse to be a wall flower all night even though I am not going to know that many people at either party.
PS - If you look really closely at the spider picture, you'll see that it's a spider carrying hundreds of little baby spiders on her back. I found it right outside my work.
Wicked nasty, yo.
