Happy Halloween!

We fit in most of the festivities in this weekend. Now that it’s Halloween proper, we’re staying home, ordering pizza, and watching scary movies. OoOoOoOo *image sources marked on Pinterest ‘It Came in the Night!’ Last but not least, the gorgeous and brutal ‘Night on Bald Mountain’- my favorite part of Fantasia.

Bobbing for Apples

In my opinion, bobbing for apples is the most difficult party game EVER. As a child, I thought it was some sort of twisted punishment and now that I’m an adult I’m too much of a sissy. Good thing this weekend’s party goers (the non-sissies) had mad skillz: Haha. Oh jeez. I took way too […]

“The Owls Are Not What They Seem.”

Our jack o lantern! Dean and I love owls. They are majestic creatures to be sure, but I’m afraid we’re guilty of loving them especially as cute, kitschy home art. We’ve unintentionally collected about a dozen pieces of owl paraphernalia including figurines, tea pots, toothbrush holders, and a lantern. I guess there’s just something about […]

Cat Fight by the Lily Pond!

Over the weekend, we celebrated Kristy’s birthday with a DYNASTY THEMED PARTY. I’m not talking the Tang Dynasty or the House of Tudor (though come to think of it, that would be a super fun party too). I mean the 1980s soap opera with showy clothes, blackmail, burning cabins, and Moldavian wedding massacres. In honor […]

New and Newsworthy (to me)

•Troops out by the end of the year! •Wild Animals: set free by depressed owner in Zanesville, Ohio. Authorities killed grizzlies, mountain lions, and wolves. Very, very sad. •Libya liberated: Gaddafi killed by rebels, confusion over death lingers •Cradle robbers: in Spain where babies where taken from parents who were deemed morally or economically undesirable- […]

Three Extremes

On Sunday, I went to Nate’s for the first batch of Halloween horror movies. One of his picks was Three… Extremes which tells three different stories by three different Asian directors. Fruit Chan’s Dumplings follows a middle aged actress who eats special dumplings to regain her youth. I guessed the special ingredient aaalmost immediately. It’s […]

Woah Dang.

I’ve been buried under a mess of work this past week or so. I’m not complaining. I like being busy- especially now that Dean has started his 50+ hour holiday weeks. But this coming week I’m setting aside real time for comic books, bubble baths, and hot toddies. ;) Random news roundup: There are a […]


Whoops, I meant to say something about this last week. No surprise, I liked it a lot. It’s a stylish and exciting movie with a fantastic cast. Some personal observations: 1. I cringed as soon as I saw the Driver’s white, satin jacket. The thought (and eventual vision) of it covered in blood hurt my […]
