Well, being a single white girl from the suburbs, I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Halloween than drowning myself in bite sized Hershey chocolates and watching Shaun of the Dead. I had anticipated seeing some cute costumed children approach the house, but Halloween just isn’t the same these days. So far, I’ve gotten maybe 2 groups of kids. One group of kids passed by the house and actually said, “No! Not that house! Let’s go to this house…”
It’s like they know I am hoarding all the chocolate to myself and cheaped out by only buying warheads to give out. I’m sorry, but when you wait until the day OF Halloween to buy candy, there are few options. And by few options, I mean they seriously only had Warheads. Sorry.
Single and unpopular like Yours Truly? Here are some things you can do on Halloween that may or may not entertain you.
- Scare some kids. You know, I’ve always got a kick out of those people who dress up as Jason or something and stand all statue-y outside their house…then they come up at you and scare the bejeezus out of you cause you’re a wuss. I’m not speaking from experience or anything. I mean. I’m not easily sca–HOLY SHIT A CENTIPEDE.
- Watch Rocky Horror Picture Show ALL DAY LONG. Because it’s on ALL DAY LONG. Shaun of the Dead is also on several times today, so take your pick of stereotypical Halloween movies.
- Dress up anyway! I am being serious, it’s always fun dressing up. But be forewarned, if you dress up as Elton John, kids will be confused. Actually, I think dressing up as Elton John may scare kids more than the typical werewolf costume these days.
- Make taco spaghetti. I actually don’t have a good Halloween related reason for this, it’s just delicious. It also provides your carb intake for the next 5 years.
- Eat pudding. For dessert after the taco spaghetti.
- Play a scary game. I will be the first to admit that Horror games do scare the shit out of me. I usually have to play them with another person, because if the game is genuinely terrifying, I become paralyzed and can’t even interact with it. I will literally pass the keyboard (or controller depending on the console) to the next person. There is something legitimately more scary than playing a game, than watching a scary movie. It’s also a nice adrenaline rush though, and what better time of the year to induce wetting yourself with a scary game than now? I recommend the Trilby Series. Simple graphics, serious mindfuck.
You could also spend your time writing a pointless blog to make the day go by. Kind of like how I am doing here. Now, excuse me, me and my bowl of chocolate have a date. OOOOMNOMNOM.
Edit: Sorry, I must add this because it’s adorable. I just answered some trick or treaters, and one of them handed me a generic newspaper we usually leave on the porch. Then she picked up the other ratty, decrepit papers that have been sitting there for months and handed them to me saying, “You missed a lot of mail!”
