I know. It's hard to scare people nowadays.
So I provide you with this relatively ghoul-free rundown of Halloween-related posts from various points throughout the internet. First, in the world of me...From JDaters Anonymous, a report of a new "tips for Halloween" press release distributed--of course--by JDate. And some yeshiva girl recalls her first Halloween (at Beliefnet).
Get your geek on by carving a pumpkin with your favorite meganerds, or, as they're known in the Latin, MacO'Lanterns (via Digg originally)...also via Digg, the Top 13 (because it's unlucky #13, get it?) sites for the holiday, including a site called Sanguinarius, for "real vampires."
According to the website,"Sanguinarius: The Vampire Support Page is a site designed for those who are or may be blood-drinkers, psychic vampires / energy vampires, and "Vampyres" (vampyre lifestylers)." There's also a link to a "terminology" page which defines things like "beacon," "turning," and my favorite, "Vampdar." (Yes, like gaydar. But for vamps. But isn't vampire radar actually sonar? Scientists, please speak.) And btw, the pic at left is from a site called "Spoofpark.")
In another vein (ROTFL/LMAO!!!), what do you think are the top Halloween costumes for children and adults? Step off, French maids...here's a hint. It's the letter after Q and before S. ARRRRRR! I guess pirates aren't just confined to the Caribbean anymore.
And in closing, from the mind of a Connecticut ninth grader comes the relatively unterrifying creative effort known as Buffy Meets Leatherface...
Happy Halloween to those of you who adore this holiday. And Happy Last Day of October to those of you who don't.
