That means it's almost Halloween, the bestest, most awesomest Gay High Holy Day of the year!
I cannot tell you how excited I get over Halloween and it's not just because of cheap candy. Despite it's beginnings as a pagan ritual to ward off evil, Halloween is when we get to dress up in costume and be silly and tell ghost stories and jump out at people in masks and be scared when people jump out at us. Halloween is spooky when it's done right and even when it's done wrong it's still just macabre fun. It reminds us that it's OK to be paranoid sometimes and gives everyone a chance to let their hair down.
Yes, there are people that hate Halloween but I don't associate with those people.
So, anyway, I'm hoping that my little blog here provides some inspiration for costumes and viewing material for parties or even just for yourself. In the meantime, here's a little song from Randy Milholland:
Oh, the knife goes in,
And the guts fall out
on the slabby, slabby
And that's how we carve a pumpkin
Just like dear, old Dad.
