After the week I've had, I wasn't really in the mood for this holiday and it's one of my favorites.  I love dressing up, I love candy (even more when it's FREE!!!) and I love fall weather.  So, today I got my house all cleaned up and then I went to the store to get some pumpkins. I love pumpkin--pumpkin candles, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin butter, and even roasted pumpkin seeds.  I however do not love cleaning out a pumpkin to carve it.  My hands have "texture issues."  I don't like touching raw meat, especially chicken, and the slimy interior of a pumpkin just gives me the heebee jeebees!  But I will endure!
After that we're gonna have a scary movie marathon.

First up is The Exorcist.  To this day, it is one of the only films that still scares me, probably because it's about demonic possession of a child. I remember when my older brother Robby came home from seeing it and he was so scared.  It probably didn't help that I looked a bit like Linda Blair as a kid, same hair anyway.

After that, it's a toss up.  We've got The Omen (original version), The Blair Witch Project and The Shining.

I wish you all a fun and safe holiday.  What are you doing?  Is your town celebrating this weekend or will people trick-or-treat on Wednesday?
