Cookies that look like bloody fingers and cupcakes garnished with “eyeballs” is not really my idea of a good time. Why in the world would I wanna eat a cookie that resembles a bloody finger? Why would I want to eat a bulging eyeball? That sounds disgusting. And it also sorta scares me. Halloween legit frightens me. Right now Pinterest is a very scary place.
What’s weird is that as a kid I was OBSESSED with Goosebumps and the Fear Street series. They were the absolute best. I loved them so much, and would read them so quickly, that my parents would plea with me to make the books last. I was a fast lil’ reader. I thought everything was a race.
While I’d definitely take another holiday over Halloween, over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing Halloween-esque recipes because I’m working on being a more positive person. Also, a major incentive is that I get to dress Amelia in Halloween costumes. So far I’ve tried to get her to wear this pumpkin hat thingy and she’s not having it. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have much of choice.
A few months ago, like right before the holidays I spoke about my horrific, scaring experience moving. It involved a duffel bag of my favorite shoes all stolen in a few split seconds from the back of my moving truck. Just devastating, really.
I didn’t move a couple of months ago because I had a small window of time to do so, didn’t find a place, blah blah, but now I’m back on the hunt. A serious one.
I’m currently animal-less. I own no animal. No cat to bury himself/herself in my hair at night. No dog to paint his paw-nails–it’s a lonely life!! I’m looking to change this. That means the search is narrowed because LA landlords hate animals. Sooo…you know, it might take a minute to find the right place.
In the mean time, I’ve been simulanteously online shopping for a dog. The only real criteria for a dog is that I want a puppy, ideally. And I want it to be ugly. Like really ugly.
