On The Hairpin Halloween Advent Calendar: Halloween Rituals

@tofuswalkman The highlight of my Halloween last year was when two ~10 year old boys tried to pull "trick or treat, smell my feet" on us but couldn't finish the rhyme and my husband finished it for them. They were shocked--SHOCKED!--that such an old person knew their secret child chant.

On The Hairpin Halloween Advent Calendar: Halloween Rituals

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.

Amazing. I used to get a Rainbow Brite tape every time we went to Blockbuster.

On Petition to Let Cinderella Wear Flats

It looks like we might be getting rid of the whole "omg her foot is sooooo small" thing, though? I could get into a trade of a higher heel for a less silly foot size.

On The Stylish Housewife Pie

@quad-lyfe I love them! The more kids the better! I actually especially like the Catholic ones because my family is Catholic, my mom has 9 brothers and sisters, and that's totally what I wanted to do when I was little.

On Female CEOs Are Almost Always Veterans of Family Crisis

This happened at my work--we got a lady CEO who seemed like a lovely person but we were fucked.
