I get obsessed about a lot of things, but nothing quite approaches my Halloween obsession. Like, my son was supposed to be born in early November, but I forced him out on Halloween through SHEER WILL because I wanted my kid to have a Halloween birthday. I also wanted him to quit giving my spine chiropractic adjustments with his head, but that’s totally off topic. ANYWAY. Halloween. Love it. Already counting down–only two months to plan the awesome.
Unfortunately, the Halloween awesome is slightly limited by the fact that I have young children. They don’t really like the idea of dressing up a bunch of plastic zombies in cheerleader and football uniforms and planting them in the yard. They think it’s freaky. OF COURSE IT IS. FREAKY AWESOME. I want to have THAT HOUSE, the one people drive by and take pictures because it’s just that cool. The one with the fog machine.
Seriously, if you want to make me happy, buy me a fog machine. I’ll dedicate my next book to you.
So now, the real work begins, and you have to help me. WHAT SHOULD I BE FOR HALLOWEEN? Last year, I was a sparkly vampire. I got all gothed up and then wrapped myself in twinkle lights. Unfortunately, my fangs wouldn’t stay in because I have a tiny mutant mouth (no, really), and I think that’s so fitting. I was a fangless sparkle vampire. Aren’t all sparkle vampires fangless? Anyway, that’s what I did last year, and now I need suggestions. WHAT SHOULD I BE FOR HALLOWEEN? If you come up with something I use, I’ll do something nice like name a murder victim after you in the book I’m writing, but not Halloween, because that was in the LAST book I wrote.
Wow, I’m really rambly today, aren’t I? HELP ME.
