Halloween!

When I was younger this was my favorite holiday, hands down. No stress leading up to it. No boring family obligations and it was all about dressing up. I always assumed this was the worlds way of evening out the lack of Kids day considering there is both Fathers AND Mothers day. Since I have three younger sisters I was able to prolong trick or treating right up to 16 years of age. Pretty sweet, amirite? Now all my sisters are too old for trick or treating and really, a 22 yr old dressing up to get candy? A little silly.

So instead I content myself with dressing up in ridiculous costumes (see Stuff White People Like post  #113) and attend Halloween parties where there is usually little in the way of candy, with the exception of the occasional jello shot.

I had some grand schemes of making this one heck of a cheesy radio Halloween good time, but sadly technology failed me once again (no offense to you blog, just the Internet as a whole) and thus I was unable to play my absolute favourite Halloween cheese songs. Instead, this show saw some improvisation with some scary tracks from scary movies. So here is my playlist for this week, but scroll all the way down for some wicked Halloween treats!
