Oops, It Was Halloween

Who is this scary looking child and what has she done with my granddaughter? EEK!!!! Last night this little goblin appeared at my door pretending to be my sweet little granddaughter. Pierced lip, multiple ear piercings? Black lipstick? Dyed black hair with pink streaks? Oh no! Gothic zombies got hold of my granddaughter and turned her into one of them. YEEEEEEEKKKKKk…… Of course, I have been known to have pink streaks in my hair too, but that’s a secret.

Last night was also my long awaited TAPS Live show. Yes, the ghost hunters were on my television for seven hours of live ghost chasing. It turned out to be seven hours of bad video feeds, missed cues and plain boring-ness. And if that isn’t a word, it is now!

The highlight of my Halloween, other than the gothic zombie at my door, was going to the movies yesterday morning. The hubster and I went to see Zack and Miri do a Porno. It was just so-so. Wait until it comes out on video. Since we arrived early at the theater, we went into The Secret Life of Bees for 20 minutes before our movie started. There was a chatty elderly couple in there. By the way, The Secret Life of Bees was really good for the 20 minutes of it that I saw. I am going to see the whole thing sometime next week I think. When our movie was over I was amused to see the chatty elderly couple talking (loudly) to the manager. She was ranting and raving because another elderly woman had asked her to be quiet during the movie. She was yelling “I come here every Friday morning and I see that woman in here every Friday morning too. My talking never bothered her before. I paid my money and if I want to talk during the movie I can talk during the movie and she don’t have no “bidness” telling me what to do. Who do she think she is? I come here every Friday you know.” It was pretty funny.

    Nice costumes!
    People who talk and bother people during movies should be crushed and incinerated.

    People who talk during movies drive me batty - the worse was a gal with her cell phone on right in front of me.

    Cute Halloween costumes!
