i love halloween! i don't know what it is about it, but i love it! weird cause i hate scary movies, i hate being scared, but i love halloween! i think that i kind of associate magic (good magic) with halloween and so i think of the night as being very magical and very fun! plus, hello- CANDY! what other day can you walk to up to a strangers house, knock on their door and get candy thrown at you? right. see? halloween rocks!
but i kind of hate getting dressed up. i don't hate it so much as i never fucking know what to dress up as. so i always end up doing some half assed shit where i put on way too much makeup that's super sparkley and annoying... and get some crazy colored wig and then i'm like "hi! i don't know what i'm supposed to be, but i'm dressed up! i mean, a wig and makeup constitues a costume, right?" then the halloween gods fly down from the heavens and spite me cause i am really, really lame when it comes to the whole costume thing.
and please don't get me started on the parties. does anyone else have that brief moment before you walk through the door of a costume party (when you're actually wearing a costume no less) that you'll be the only one dressed up and you'll open the door in your stupid costume and everyone will turn and look at you like you're a complete freak because you're in a costume and they're all in regular clothes? that moment scares the shit out of me. but then you see that everyone else really is in a costume and it's not some huge joke all on you and then you start breathing again cause you're not the only one in a costume. jeez, writing that paragraph almost made me sweat.
and have i started to make you think that i really don't like halloween?!? cause man, i think i have, but it's not true. i really love halloween. i do! i just never know what to wear! so help me! what do you do? do you dress up? what about the parties?! talk to me people!
