It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown... Go ahead and eat it!

Charlie Brown: Hey! I got an invitation to a Halloween party!
Lucy Van Pelt: Is the invitation to Violet's party?
Charlie Brown: Yes. It's the first time I've been invited to a party.
Lucy Van Pelt: Charlie Brown, if you got an invitation, it was a mistake. There were two lists, Charlie Brown: one to invite, and one not to invite. You must have been put on the wrong list.

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was always one of my favorite cartoons. Charlie always made me feel better about myself. I may be a loser, but damn, I don’t have it as bad as Ol’ Charlie.

Growing up in rural Mississippi, I enjoyed the chance to pretend to be someone else. My favorite costume was always the vampire. I, like many Scorpios, love vampires. It all started with the film, Fright Night and Anne Rice’s novel, Interview with the Vampire. I have followed Lestat andMarius and Pandora through all of the novels.

This Halloween I will be at Fire in the Smokies, minus the vampire costume. I cannot afford to do it right with Christmas knocking on my door (and fishing through my wallet). What are your Halloween plans? Parties, costumes… are you on the list?

I normally have a costume of some sort, but this year for some reason, I'm not really feeling Halloween. I've been invited to a couple parties, but I haven't accepted any invitations yet. I guess I'll figure it out tomorrow night while I'm sitting around the house while all my friends are out. LOL

Halloween is my favorite holiday too. I didn't have any creative energy this year and so am not dressing up, and Im kind of disappointed about that. I was a vampire once when I was 12, and my girlfriend at the time (who is now my best friend) was dressed almost like a vampire hooker. My ultimate Halloween Highlight was a couple of years ago when Kelly Rippa showed my picture and called my name as one of the 10 finalist in their costume contest. I was half man-half woman, and everyone loved that costume. Have fun in the mountains!

Do enjoy yourself, yes I agree that Halloween can be a fun time for adults and children alike. For some odd reason my staff wants to dress up and it appears that my boss is behind this shyte, we are allotted a couple of hours for the inter-office event. Yes I have to get up early to apply make-up and make adjustments to my gown and hair.
