You know my favorite part of Halloween? All the good TV. I'm not usually a TV junkie, but during October, I scour the tube for scary movies, great documentaries, and specials.
I spent most of last night watching Biography Channel and the History Channel. There were biographies of Bram Stoker, a look back at the Salem Witch Trials, and other good spooky stuff.
Today I woke up to an all-day marathon of one of my favorite horrible shows, Ghost Hunters!!!! And tonight there's a 7-hour live investigation airing on the Sci-Fi channel. I'll watch whatever's leftover after our trick-or-treaters make the rounds.
Yesterday Netflix sent me a bit of good Halloween programming: Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. This is the first I've seen of Sweeney Todd (I know I'm way behind the curve), and I looooove it so far. LOVE. I got sleepy and didn't get to finish, but I'm sure I'll finish it off here in a little while.
I'm costumeless this year, unless I pose as a "nutty professor," but that's everyday really. My mom, the city secretary here in our hometown, is dressed as a "Cereal Killer" today. She left the house adorned with ripped and stabbed miniature cereal boxes (blood drawn on), she dotted her face and mouth with fake blood, and she's got a costume bloody knife in her pocket to wield all day. The court clerk in the office dressed as a dead runaway bride: wedding garb complete with veil, tennis shoes, and a painted dead face. They're having a big time while I'm still in my pjs lazing around with Daisy.
I think I'll go prep the candy bowl soon so I can dip into it on and off all day.
I hope you all have a great day and night! I'll try to gather some pics of the Halloweeny goings-on here tonight.
