Happy Halloween, to all our Talk Supe friends! I know that a lot of you are eagarly awaiting the big candy-thon that is heading your way. Not to mention, some of you might be heading to a rockin’ Halloween party with your favorite guys and ghouls. Gosh, WC Stacey (SWD) already modeled some fabulous costume ideas for you. Well here’s my deepest, darkest secret for only you guys…I am not that excited about the Great Pumpkin Day.
I love Fall with it’s turning leaves, apple cider and pumpkin pies. Halloween, however, fills me with dread. That day means scary masks, trick or treating in blustery Northern weather and gory Halloween movies. If I do ever dress up for Halloween it’s usually things like angels, princesses, the occasional hippie chick and Strawberry Shortcake. Oh and not sexy versions, but non-threatening cute ones. Also, something usually bad happens in those costumes like the fateful year my sophmore year of college, when I landed face first in amud puddle wearing an angel costume. This is a cautionary tale of not drinking and trying to climb a fence while wearing heels in the rain. Mud just doesn’t come out of white, people!
You see I DO like supernatural movies and television shows. but really only the romantic ones that are pretty much glorified soap operas with minimal gore. Just not scary, super gory ones like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Friday the 13th. Don’t even get me started on Saw and Hostel. Want to see a girl chanting, “Please make it stop” under a blanket. Well, that would be me on most Halloweens.
Add in some zombies, oh I hate zombies, and see a new side of fear. AMC’s new zombie show, Walking Dead is going to do me in. How I miss you Don Draper and your Mad Men! I couldn’t even enjoy last night’s NBC’s Community, since they did a zombie spoof. (The Office, however, with it’s ‘Bill Compton’ Andy and ‘Sookie’ Meredith was all types of hilarious!) It did, however, lead me to an important discovery…I really like vampire stuff, but aren’t they just really pretty zombies? Who drink blood, instead of munching on their victim’s brains? They are both the undead. So for this Halloween, instead of frightening you, dear readers, with ghastly images (I do not want THOSE on my harddrive) I will be showing you happy Halloween images. Enjoy!
Don’t Damon and Stefan Salvatore give you all types of warm fuzzies? Stefan in his lumberjack shirts and cartigans. Damon ripping out Uncle Mason’s heart. Wait… what… *sniff, sniff* Damon how could you!
Ohh…look it’s our buddy Sam!
A puppy…wearing a Halloween costume!
- Sam will definitely not be turning into this!
