Ooooooh, Let's All Be Scared!

Even though I'm in London on this All Hallows Eve, I am trying to keep the good ol' American(ized) Halloween spirit in my heart today. It's rainy and gloomy here (good, good - adds to the atmosphere . . . ), so I'll probably forego a day of cemetery-tromping and opt for a museum. However, that will not deter me from reflecting on the scary stuff of 2010. Here's my list:
  • Justin Bieber's hair. Every time I see this 10-year-old boy posing as a teen heart-throb, I want to jump into bed and pull the covers over my head. What is with that creeeepy hair? *spine-shiver*
  • Everyone running for political office. I'm terrified of all of you. You are not our best and brightest. You are our greediest and dumbest. Will someone please wake me from this election year nightmare?
  • That dancing cougar-woman in the Chico commercials. Sends me running from the room every time  the ad hits the TV. The problem is that her look-alike cougar-zombie pals roam the Upper East Side in packs, even in broad daylight. True. *cringe, whimper*
  • Bedbugs. Though I haven't had the thrill of meeting any of the little critters yet, all the news reports keep me awake at night thinking, Okay, what will I do if I get bedbugs? *itchy, scratchy*
  • Charlie Sheen. 'Nuff said.
Okay, now you. What's scaring you this Halloween? My suggestion is to settle in with a good horror flick and reminisce about those good old innocent scary days - pig's blood at a prom, blood-sucking Transylvanians, and satan-spawned devil-babies. That should take your mind off Justin Bieber's hair.

We here in the mountains of North Georgia celebrated All Hallows Eve last night with a "safe zone" Trick or Treat event on Main Street of Blue Ridge. Over 5000 costumed, parent escorted kids descended on our little town. We, at our one little shop, distributed over $400 worth of candy (mostly Tootsie Rolls.. which as far as I am concerned can be placed back in the litter box)and Tootsie Roll Pops and Dots.. UKKKK!!! It Was Such Fun!! and as you know I love children.....Medium Rare!!!
First prize winners were: an Elf from Middle Earth (who even mastered a couple of tunes on an ocarina) and his little brother dressed as Alfalfa from "Our Gang" They were ADORABLE!!~
Halloween in small town America. I wouldn't trade it for the World.
Have fun in Jolly Ole England.
Wishing all a Blessed All Saints Day, tomorrow. (...who from their labors rest)
