|My Halloween cats. :-)|
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? :-)
