Are you ready?

Are you ready for Halloween?

I'm not.

Oh sure I've put out the minimal amount of decor. I own it, I may as well use it. But since I left that medical skeleton in the attic of the old house it just doesn't pack the same punch. Maybe it does for the people who live in the old house.

Last year in West Hollywood it was a bit of a zoo. I mean, come on, Kevin Federline on the main stage of Halloween in West Hollywood? Deborah Gibson maybe. Not K-Fed.

I don't have a costume for this year. Correction. I do have a costume. I have many costumes. They are all in the Halloween bin (orange and black from Target, thank you) and I can be a fallen angel (last year and three years ago), a sexy sailor (two years ago), Peter Pan (not enough years ago) or any number of things yet to be pulled from the bin. But so far, nothing new to gather.

We don't get any trick or treaters. Is it perhaps the Orthodox Jewish neighborhood we live in? But I've got 8 bags of dark chocolate peanut M&M's set aside just in case. Come on kids, save me from myself!

Peter Pan. You must be Peter Pan. And we demand photos. Lots of photos.

My wife found Ghostbusters outfits so the two of us and my older daughter are going as ghostbusters and my older daughter's friend is going as the Stay-Puff marshmellow man.

I'm reading this as four bags of dark chocolate peanute M&Ms a piece should I ring your doorbell for candy.

We could tell scary stories. Like the time the sales associate at SAKS yelled across the store "...I'm sorry, sir, we don't carry VERSACE jeans any larger than a size 34."

Wench.

I have a costume all pulled together just in case. ANd if I were going to an adult, civilized Halloween party I might be more energetically inclined to make an appearance. BUT, if the traffic is anything like last year, I'll be lucky to get home by 7 and lucky to be able to get to Santa Monica in time for the fun. So I might just stay home and watch movies. Or just go to bed early.

I DID send out my werewolf story last night, if that counts.

I think you need to send out the M & M's to us since we ARE dressing up, you party pooper. We have a 12 foot grim reaper on our garage door, a Scary scarecrow wrapped to our tree with spider webs, a fog machine and a cyber skeleton head that talks. But that's just the beginning...I do an entire meal of gross foods. It's fun.

First year I'll be taking my son house to house (he's not quite 2) and I'm excited, but not dressing up myself... is that a contradiction?? Am I a bad mom?!
