I hope you're all having a SPOOKY evening!
I don't have anything special planned this year. Halloween's not a big deal on this side of the pond, although I did have a blast organising a big fiesta two years in a row when I lived here before... I re-discovered a love of Jack'o'Lanterns:
You like? Those are from the first party I did here (4 pumpkins, 4 artists, we had such fun!), in my appartment when my sister lived with me for 3 months in 2005.
(I didn't realise how transparent that shirt was until I saw the photos the next day... oops!)
She and a friend really wanted a party so I said "sure, why not?!" and proceeded to have a blast decorating the appartment, inviting friends, and stressing about the neighbours.
But I was so stressed out about the neighbours (I had a major grump living next door) and the state of the living room the next day was such that the following year (2006) we decided to do it in a local pub instead of at home. One of the girls involved in the organising was friends with the owner of a pub downtown that had 2 floors, so we reserved the upper level, decorated,
prepared some snacks...
and then invited a bunch of friends and partied 'till the sun came up! Good times :o)
We also celebrated my room-mate's birthday (she's a Halloween baby!), with that smiley pumpkin cake up there!
Hmmm... but the music I'm hearing tells me the students in my tower might have decided to celebrate Halloween after all! I might have to go check that out...
In the meantime I'll leave with some vampires, enjoy! ;o)
