Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Do you have any fun/scary Halloween plans today? What's lame about this year's Halloween is that it falls on a Monday and like most of you out there who have to go to work or school today, I too have to go to work today. So I have been trying to take advantage of the holiday season throughout the month of October (including drinking tons of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and my quest to find Schlafly's Pumpkin Ale in my city).  Here's what else I've been doing to get in the Halloween spirit:


This is my scary/angry pumpkin that I've named, Olivier, after the Project Runway season 9 contestant that turned out to be a huge complainer. My Olivier sports bloodshot eyes after staying up late countless nights trying to finish his garments, but he's also punk rock because he has a Mohawk. 


Last Friday, the Boy and I caught a local production of Evil Dead the Musical to get into the Halloween spirit and it was pretty awesome- just like the Evil Dead films. Since I wasn't able to capture a photo of the awesomeness of the musical instead, I decided to share with you a photo of my awesome drink, "The Boomstick" instead (it was awesomely delicious).


Then last Saturday the Boy and I attended a local screening of the original 1925 silent movie version of Phantom of the Opera with live organ music played on an 86 year old organ. I had never seen the original Phantom of the Opera all the way through, so I thought this was a great opportunity to check it out, but the Boy was a little disappointed that this version did not include any of the famous Phantom songs from the Andrew Lloyd Webber's version.

The Boy and I have also been trying to watch as many scary, Halloween inspired films as we can. Here's a list of the Halloween films that we have watched this season so far:
  1. My Name is Bruce
  2. The Craft
  3. The Nightmare Before Christmas
  4. Halloween: H20
  5. Troll 2 (I really wanted to dress up as Creedence Lenore Gielund this year)
  6. Dracula: Dead and Loving It
  7. Scream 4
  8. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
My absolute favorite scary movie to watch is the original Halloween. Do you have any Halloween flicks that you would like to recommend? Do you have any fancy Halloween plans? Let me know in the comments below.
