Every day is Halloween in our house, but since it’s October 1st I’ll define today as the “official” start of the Halloween season.
Every year I try to stick to an overall theme in my October entertainment blogging. I was very excited about the theme I chose this year: ghosts, hauntings, and other things that go bump in the night.
I was momentarily disappointed when I remembered that I also chose ghosts and haunted houses as my 2009 Halloween theme. Then I double-checked and saw that I was too busy to keep up with the theme last year.
It’s okay either way, for the following reasons:
a) this is my blog and I rule it with an iron fist
b) “a” doesn’t apply to me, only you
c) the amount of stuff I added to my netflix queue would take a lifetime to watch, so I’m sure I could do this theme every year and never repeat myself
d) I repeat myself all the time because I’m becoming my mother, so “c” is pretty much irrelevant
e) I’m forgetful, see also: “d”
f) I almost never stick to my theme anyway
g) this justifies all the time I’ve spent watching Scooby Doo over the last few weeks
h) I think “h” was going to be a punchline relating to “a” and “b” but I’ll be damned if I can remember where this was headed
i) see also, “e”
So there you have it. And if you have it, you should get it treated right away before it spreads.
