Happy Halloween (and stuff)

31 Oct

It may have rained in two of my bedrooms, but I made it through the storm. On Monday night I was so bored that I ate an entire bag of Halloween candy, drank a bottle of wine and then, by candlelight and Nicki French’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” learned to sing and hula hoop with two hoops at the same time. That will be useful for my future, I’m sure.

Anyway, Happy Halloween! While you all are out with your children, I’ll be stuffing my face giving out candy by myself and wishing I had a screaming kid on a sugar high.

    I’m enjoying the fact that my son is old enough to go trick or treating with his friend so I don’t have to tag along. How’s that for maternal Halloween spirit?

    Nice to know you made through the storm like my family did, drinking and eating.
    You should put the recently mastered skills on your resume.
    Happy Halloween!

    I love Halloween because it’s an excuse for me to buy a ton of candy I’ll end up eating, and nobody gives you that pity look at the checkout.

    I’m inventing Reese’s Peanut Butter Merlot. Don’t grimmace until you have tried it. Holidays are overrated. In my opinion Halloween is best celebrated with Pumpkin Ale.

      However, Halloween is probably not best celebrated with Pumpkin Ale when one is alone. I’ll try your Merlot.

    Wine can solve even hurricane level boredom. Glad you roughed it through. Because hula hooping is as rough as rough can get.

    Seriously though, glad you didn’t get any really dangerous damage.

    I can’t think of anything to say that hasn’t already been said, so here are some words that rhyme with horns:
    Horns, fawns, forlorns, dawns, yawns, spawns, corns, torns, scorns, lawns. Shorns, thorns, borns, bornes, pawns, porns, sworns.

      Actually some of these may not be words and you have to say some in my accent or it to work I think.
