Are You Thinking About Halloween Yet?

Two things that came up on my Facebook memories today:

I then said then that I always try to get my Halloween decorations up before October 1, 
then remembered that last year I did not get them up until a week later, on the 8th. 
And it just occurred to me that I haven't been thinking much about Halloween just
yet. Some yes, but not a whole lot just yet.  And now I want to star looking for the decorations
 to decide where to put them this year.

I will be doing art class this week and have an idea related to Halloween. I will tell you more
about this later, as it will take a bit of explanation.

And then I saw this:

I am a pharmacist and work for Walgreen's so when someone suggested I do something work related for the office costume contest, a prescription bottle ...

I blogged about this last year and am still not certain if I'm going to do this one.  
It seems appropriate for me, but at the same times seems a little weird.  It looks 
kind of hard to sit down and  to drive in something like this, something I have 
always thought about homemade costumes such as the grapevine one made from balloons.
Now that one seems even harder to move around in. Not to mention worry over the
balloons popping or deflating before the night is over.

I have been looking at costumes for sale on the Spirt site and on the site,
and just a day or two ago, looked at the ones already on display at Kmart.  I saw the 
cheeseburger and hot dog ones and am annoyed by the fact that the label says these are just
for men.  I see no reason why I can't wear one of these. This "women's costumes have to be 
sexy" bit is so tired. It comes up on various websites every single year. It's just plain ridiculous.

There are few ideas I have already been considering. A mermaid or a prisoner in orange 
(yes, I have watched Orange is the New Black). But there's still time.


  1. We really don't play Halloween here. The stores do but that is for financial reasons.
    Looking forward to hearing about your art project.

  2. I'm sure you'll come up with something creative and fun.

  3. How FUN! It's never too early to start planning for Halloween, as far as I'm concerned. It's my favorite holiday and it goes by too quickly. I haven't had an excuse to dress in costume for a while, though. We don't get trick-or-treaters anymore and my partying days are long behind me!
