Pow!!!

I apologize to all my readers for not posting yesterday – I had some important “meetings” that took up a big part of my day. I hope to elaborate in the near future.

Anyway, tonight is a very big party night in the US, as we celebrate Halloween … well, Halloween is actually on Tuesday this year, BUT adults like to celebrate this on a Saturday night, as we all dress up in sexy, goofy, slutty, and scary costumes, and then get sexy, goofy, slutty and scary drunk.

Halloween is an interesting holiday in that I believe it was once some sort of Pagan holiday. Basically, children dress up in costumes, go door-to-door and ask for candy. As a kid, I loved this holiday. As an adult, I love it more now.

Tonight, I will be dressing up as legendary NFL broadcaster John Madden. I plan on having pictures up in a couple of days. Sorry this post is so short – I need to work on the costume now (and watching the Penn State game).

The holiday was created because of the beleif that on halloween, spirits can walk the earth in "human" form and those spirits can come and steal your soul/body to complete their unfinished business. Thus the costumes are supposed to "fool" the spirit so they will not take you...

Mexican culture calls it "dia de la muerta" DAY OF THE DEAD. I think it's a better description...

A friend of mine had a joke that said it best...

We tell our kids not to accept candy from strangers, then on Halloween we dress them up in drag and send them out to solicit it.

Halloween makes me miss college.

By the way, I don't think John Madden would ever -- EVER -- turn down ham.

Morning. Definitely felt weird with no banter Friday.

Steph - you'll need to make a trip to the states some time for Halloween.

Snowelf - I won't let it happen again!

Superstar - I knew I could count on you to help me with the research!

REV - Ba-da-bing!

Jeff - Thankfully, there was no ham at the party.

FM - I'll make up for it this week.
