But I suppose it has something to do with the fact that I appreciate all things silly that instead I actually *adore* the whole gamut of goofiness that has to do with the 31st of October. You know, like that picture to the left. Zombie? check. Silly afro manufactured by me? check. Sitting on my desk at work and horrifying my boss? check and check.
We've done some celebrating already (as I mentioned in my previous post) to include a costume party out in Redmond, which was pretty spectacular. All costumes (save mine, it goes without saying) were pretty fantastic. But despite my baby fit that I had right before leaving the house, I had a great time. Maybe next year I can be spared the horror of "what are you again?" and have a decent outfit. Fingers crossed. We also went to a spooky themed potluck in Ballard last Friday. The Eerie Eyeballs were a hit. I should mention that I got them from this lady's site. Starbuck and Apollo were there. Geek heaven! Also, tonight is pumpkin carving (although the Companion Cube thinks he's going to be playing his new game - insert evil laugh here).
That said, I don't know what I'm more excited about this year: Halloween or finally getting past next Tuesday and having this freaking election cycle FINALLY be over. I'm sick of hearing, talking, and thinking about it. Blech.
