a huntington halloween
halloween represented in pictoral fashion (plus a few short sentences).
oh - and we had trick or treater's!! my very first halloween being on the other side of the door (although for like the past 6 or 7 i think i have not been ringing doorbells...). i actually got to pass out candy! which was weird. and caused alot of ridiculous pre-candy handing out stress. what do you say when they come to the door? is it lame if i'm wearing a costume? do you hand out the candy, or do they pick? will i have enough? what if i only get 2 kids? what if we get 90?
should i put the pumpkin on the porch (where it could catch some unsuspecting kid's cape on fire)? should they come to the front or side door (we live on the corner)? the front door is easily accessible, but has rickety stairs (lawsuit?) but the side door is harder to see if people are coming.
but i survived. here are some pictures.
the FIRST costume (this one didn't work out)
the second costume
bewitching (notice my solution to the pumpkin issue.. put it on a chair! no one was harmed during the evening - success!)
in case you didn't know, halloween / october / fall is my favorite holiday / month / season, so i've been in the autumn mood around the house! i think its time for a list.
HALLOWEENIE (i said weenie) THINGS I HAVE BEEN UP TO 1. decorating the apartment in a halloweenish setting. 2. making things with pumpkin in it - pumpkin cake, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie. mmm. 3. finding my way out of a corn maize maze*. 4. making jack'o'lanterns (inspiration). 5. making delicious ding dong spiders (inspiration). 6. hallowine mystery wine tasting tour. 7. living with a black cat.
PICTURES OF THESE THINGS (because pictures are more fun) 1-3 - no pictures. sorrry
4. nate's masterpiece (pun intended) - how am i supposed to display this??
MY PG-13 pumpkin
5. DING DONG SPIDERS
number one is an alien. he is here to eat your brains.
number two is just evil.
7. obligatory halloween cat
*yes i know that corn maize maze is redundant. i also know that when going to places where puns are so easily made (CORNy puns, i might add), you should leave nate. but i didn't follow either, so why start now?

foundations - kate nash
kate nash! why had i never heard of her before?! i heart british singers. and apparently she's rather young (19 according to google?). also apparently lily allen is a fan of
so this is her song 'foundations' which was released in june. while it slightly bothers me when singers sing/talk about stupid things (see lyrics: "Don't want to look at your face, 'cause it's making me sick / You've gone and got sick on my trainers / only got these yesterday "), i can get over it because i love the chorus. yay new artist!
