because i'm also now an Old, last year was the first time i was home to give out candy to trick-or-treaters. i wore my favorite werewolf mask and felt judged to be very lame by most of the kids who came up to my door. one little boy, however, came up by himself and looked at me askance when i gave him his candy. i thought he was just mean muggin me like everyone else had, but after i shut the door, i heard him say to his mom "I DON'T WANT TO GO TO ANY MORE HOUSES THAT WAS A WEREWOLF."
night - nay, life - completely made.

I never celebrated Halloween so I'm just going to dress up and go up to everyone in the Awl office and demand candy. I'll let you all know how it goes.

YAYYYYYY--We're doing a couple of things. First, we've already started the parade of scary movies by watching two random ones on Netflix, You're Next and Insidious 2. Both were worth it for a weeknight!

The next thing is that we're going to have a Fall Extravaganza where we go to a pumpkin patch/corn maze in the afternoon, then go have some kind of Octoberfest dinner (there isn't a convenient German restaurant so this will probably just be sausage and beer), then go to Field of Screams which is a haunted house/woods walk/hayride situation. I AM SO EXCITED.

As for me, these days, I read only Bustle.

@Jolie Kerr Probably lost in translation (English is not my mother tongue) but anyways, we agree. A weird way to describe The Hairpin!

@hallelujah I got married last year and I'm still not over it. There's still parts I can't talk about because it makes me too mad to remember how stressed and shitty it was.
