Halloween

Happy Halloween, everyone!

I carved my pumpkin on Saturday while watching Strictly Come Dancing and drinking wine. Maybe that's why he looks so happy:

Such a happy pumpkin.

He's currently sitting by the front door, ready to welcome any trick-or-treaters who might come by. So far no-one has appeared, possibly put off by the rain, but the night is still young.

I went to Starbucks earlier and tried a pumpkin spice latte. I was a bit wary at first but it was actually really nice. When I got home I made bat cookies and now I'm drinking a jack-o-lantern cocktail. It's quite strong and I still have to make dinner later. Hopefully I'll be able to stay upright.

I'm also dressed up, complete with witch earrings and Elphaba necklace. I mention this because no one else is. I'm really the only person in my family who gets excited about things like Halloween and Christmas. Clearly I need to get some children. Or find some friends who live close enough that I can force them to celebrate with me.

In other news, it's November tomorrow and that means I have to decide if I want to do NaNoWriMo and/or NaBloPoMo this year. I'm pretty certain that I won't be able to write 50,000 words, but I'm thinking it might be good to try and write something. And I hardly ever come on LJ any more, so NaBloPoMo might be difficult to achieve. Or it could be my triumphant return. I see I'm not alone in drifting away from this site though, so if I do end up posting every day I'll probably end up filling your friends pages with nothing but my pointless ramblings.
