My Halloween cats. :-)
I don't know about you guys, but Halloween is totally sneaking up on me this year!

In fact, October is going by really fast for me. Next weekend his Halloween! I don't have any big plans, really. In fact, on the 31st I'm planning on going to a NaNoWriMo kick-off party. Not quite a Halloween party, but it'll suffice. Since I'm super excited about NaNo, if you couldn't tell.

I do plan to celebrate this spooky holiday, though! Just...this weekend instead of next.

This weekend my friend, Megan, and I are driving to Austin to check out The House of Torment.

I was watching a special—I think it was on the Travel Channel—about the best haunted houses in the U.S. One of them was The House of Torment, and when I saw it was in Austin, I thought, "What a great excuse for a road trip!"

So we're going on Saturday. I'm pretty stoked. I haven't been to a haunted house in...well, kind of ever. I went once way back when, but didn't end up doing much. I'm a total chicken, too, so I expect that on Sunday I won't have a voice from screaming so much. And if I sleep Saturday night, it'll be because I'm so worn out from feeling like my life is in peril.

But there's something admittedly exciting about being able to feel fear without actually being in any real danger. I'll report back with whether or not that actually proved true for me.

Other than that, my Halloween plans are pretty non-existent. Last year my roommate and I threw a party, but now that I'm living alone, I imagine I'll end up watching some scary movies the weekend of. I have a pretty substantial collection of them.

Also, on an semi-related note, Paranormal Activity 2 comes out this weekend! Good timing, if you ask me. What with Halloween coming up so soon. Which I'm sure they planned for when they picked a release date, but still...

Do you guys have any big and exciting Halloween plans? :-)

I imagine I'll be working. Or doing homework. Cool...NOT. *rolls eyes*

Well, I got invited to a party but it's on the 30th instead of the 31st...and I don't have a costume so...yeah. *lame* Oh well. Like it.

I have to work at the library (during the day) on Halloween, so I'm wearing my costume to work--I Love Lucy :) I have a great polka dot swing dress, red wing and little white apron. I can't wait! It's fun to see the kids come in and try to guess who or what you are. For previous years, I've dressed up as Amelia Earhart and Princess Peach at the library.

And yes, October and well really the fall semester is flying by! My bday is right around the corner..can't believe it.

@Matt—I imagine I SHOULD be doing homework, but...I probably won't. I suck at doing anything scholarly over the weekend, unless I absolutely have to.

And at least you got invited to a party! I cannot say the same. Heheh. Just wear normal clothes and put on a name-tag. You can go as...BIlly. Or Mustafa.

@museumgirl22—Ah! I love I Love Lucy! Sounds like an excellent costume! And I love that you're wearing it to work!

I'm so glad this semester is going by fast. Mine is not going so well. Hope you're having better luck! And happy birthday, early! :-D

Your excitment about NaNoWriMo is infectious. I've signed up. Not sure what I've gotten myself into, but getting back into writing should be good for me :)

Sarah said...

Yay! That's awesome! I bet you end up having a lot of fun. :-)

If you'd like to add me as a writing buddy, feel free to do so!

Thanks for the comment!
