i was back in the states for halloween this year… and it was great! after three years in sweden (one of them in ireland), i was dying for a traditional kinda halloween. well, it’ll never be like it was for me when i was kid because, well, i’m not a kid. and i don’t go trick or treating anymore. and i don’t have kids. so it’s an adult-acting-like-a-kid kinda halloween for me these days = just as fun, only in a different way. anyway, this year we had plans. plans for costumes. plans for a haunted comedy tour on a bus with my brother. plans for hanging out in downtown asheville in our costumes. and plans for candy, decorations, and pumpkin carving.
here’s a little bit of what happened on the day of ghouls & goblins:
in case you don’t know, my love & i were dressed up as piper chapman (lina) and alex vause (me) from the netflix series orange is the new black. (i mentioned it in this blog). they are two women in prison, in a relationship, and busted for dealing drugs. it’s an amaaaazing show, so if you haven’t seen it, get netflix and check it out. we love it. and that’s my awesome little bro dressed as a monk. have i mentioned how much i love living near him again?!
it was pretty much a great halloween! hope yours was too. how much candy ya got left over? hehe.
