Why do I blog? I mean, why does anyone blog? Because they have things to say, and because they think other people want to read about them. I also blog so I can remember things that happened years ago, and how I felt/what I was thinking at that time. Oh, and I like to record funny quotes.

And finally,
A Halloween MH Review! )

Answer to last Thursday's song: Josie and the Pussycats Theme, from Josie and the Pussycats. No one guessed this one.

Song quote for tonight: Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?
So, I had plans for a second post today, which was a Halloween MH review, but I have a cold and I hit myself in the face while carving pumpkins, and what I'm saying is that you're all just going to have to wait until tomorrow.

But I do want to say: Happy Birthday, Molly Weasley!!!

Everyone please have a safe Cabbage Night. :D
So I entered the MH Halloween photo competition for the first time this year, and even though I didn't place, I'm pretty pleased with my picture. Anyway, I wanted to (once the competition was over) post the picture here and give a little commentary on it. I didn't say anything about it over on the community because I wanted it to be able to stand on its own, but I do have things I want interested parties to know. :)

Clawd is totally the winner, BTW )

The next Ghouls Rule review is coming, I promise, I just haven't gotten there yet. Two people voted in my poll, so there's a tie right now between GR Frankie and GR Cleo. If you have strong feelings about that, go vote!
Yes, I am making another post, Andrew is at class and I'm trying to entertain myself, deal with it. Also, I didn't want this to go in my last post, but I want it to go up before Halloween. ANYWAY.

Photo heavy post, ahoy!

Feelings on this doll are divided, apparently. )

Possibly I will get in another GR review tomorrow night, it depends on how many kids come to the door. (Should I be really excited to hand out candy? I don't care, I'm SUPER EXCITED.) But the question is, who do you want to see reviewed next? GR Frankie, Cleo, or Abbey?

[Poll #1875712][Poll #1875712]
All right, get ready for this LJ world, it's a special double review! In honor of Halloween, I'm going to break out of the pattern I've been going in (reviewing dolls in the approximate order in which I got them) and review some of my Ghouls Rule dolls. They're Halloween themed, and meant to go with the MH Halloween special, so this is the most appropriate time to talk about them, don't you think?

But it's also a little bit more complicated than that. )

More GR reviews coming soon! I'll try to get at least one more in before Halloween.
I'm watching HalloweenTown while I write this, so 
what better time to do a werewolf review? )

Heh, I'm at the part of Halloweentown where they get hair from the totally straight, why do you ask werewolf hairdresser. I love this movie. I bet Marnie would fit right in with the MH kids.
Happy birthday to about a million people today, including Molly Weasley!

It's also Cabbage Night, but I'm hoping no one smashes our pumpkins. I carved an Ariel one this year, and it is awesome!

See you on Halloween!

Was much better than last year, and we even had trick-or-treaters (plus bonus homeless man)!

The pumpkins that Andrew and I carved. Mine is Castle, and his is Voldemort.


For once in my college life, I'm not paying to go to the Halloween dance and have a crappy time, but am instead going to Heather's party in Middlebury. Woot!
1. Happy Birthday to: Phillip Noonan, Denelle, Renee B., Amanda Mulligan, and Molly Weasley. (WTF goes on nine months before the 30th?)

2. It's Cabbage Night!

3. Although I am fortunate enough to live in Vermont, a state which passed a Civil Union law in 2000, (Parties to a civil union shall have all the same benefits, protections, and responsibilities under Vermont law, whether they derive from statute, policy, administrative or court rule, common law, or any other source of civil law, as are granted to spouses in a marriage.) which, granted, isn't a marriage in name, but the feeling's there, and also to attended a college where one of the theater professors got the first civil union in the state, I still think everyone should read this: (Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] siriusly_sex )

1. Being Gay Is Not Natural
And real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning, tattoos, piercings and silicon breasts...

2. Gay Marriage Will Encourage People To Be Gay
In the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing Gay Marriage Will Open The Door To All Kinds Of Crazy Behavior
People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract. Lamps are next.

4. Straight Marriage Has Been Around A Long Time And Hasn't Changed At All
Hence why women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight Marriage Will Be Less Meaningful If Gay Marriage Were Allowed
And we can't let the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage be destroyed.

6. Straight Marriages Are Valid Because They Produce Children
So therefore, gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our population isn't out of control, our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously Gay Parents Will Raise Gay Children
Since, of course, straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay Marriage Is Not Supported By Religion
In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children Can Never Succeed Without A Male And A Female Role Model
Which is exactly why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay Marriage Will Change The Foundation Of Society; We Could Never Adapt To New Social Norms
Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Repost This If You Think Love Makes A Marriage
Vote NO On Proposition 8

Today in Orgo lab Professor Lamos showed us how you can make a single pipet into a shit-ton of capillary tubes by heating the middle of the pipet over a burner until it gets melty, and then stretching it out real fast so it gets all thin before it cools. The thing is, you can only stretch the glass as wide as your arms are, so the temptation is to bring your arms out really far. It was at this point that Lamos told us, especially if we were women, that this is not a good idea. Stretching your arms out really far thrusts your chest out, and into the hot glass. Which is a problem for everyone, but especially those with boobs. :)

Too Much Information:
Joe's Cell Phone: *rings in the middle of wind ensemble*
Joe: (embarassed) I'm sorry. That was a fluke.
Doc: (quietly) Eh, you were a fluke.
Joe: (excited) No! I wasn't! My mother called me one day to tell me that I was a planned baby. *imitating his mother* You were concieved on Valentine's Day, 1986.
Me: *in my head* TMI Joe.

Lily and James Potter were murdered on Halloween. So, this is not just a holiday, but also the anniversary of their death. I wonder what that does to Harry's perception of the day.


It's a travesty that the most Halloween-y music I have is Sweeney Todd. I don't even have Thriller or The Monster Mash. Oh well.

Here are, as usual, some links:

Have a spooky day!
Because all the cool kids are doing it:

LogoThere is:
person with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Ok, I'm just going to come right out and say it: The Halloween dance sucked. I don't know why I go to dances anymore. They don't play any music I can even stand to hear, much less dance to. But I looked hot, as did my suitemates and Co. We kicked so much ass with our costumes.

Which brings me to my rantish-thing for the night: DRESSING LIKE A SLUT/WHORE IS NOT A GOOD COSTUME. I do not know how many girls I saw in very short and/or tight outfits who weren't supposed to be anything other than skanky. (And the ones that were slutty nurses/firemen/etc. were only mariginally better.) It really irritated me.

Oh, but these two boys went as a giant penis and a giant hand. Yeah. That was pretty amusing, if I do say so myself. (And I do.)

Anyways, a bunch of us left the dance after like an hour, and went to a townhouse where Katie K. and her boyfriend were Harry and Hermione. I was really impressed with their costumes, as well as Jon Anderson's Ace Ventura. It was great. And Gary was the milkman, while his girlfriend was someone else's wife who he'd knocked up. I thought that was very creative.

Have I mentioned yet how annoying drunk people are?

So, I was Elpheba, and Brendan painted me green. And when we got back and I finally washed it all off, I was like "I've been de-greenified!"

And then Nora and I watched Ever After and went to bed. So it really wasn't a bad night, even with the crappy dance.

It's almost time for the Halloween dance! And I'm being Elphaba, Abby and Brendan are Christine and the Phantom, and Jenn and Jasiu are Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf. Oh, and Abby's friend Justine is Mrs. Lovett. Musical dorks much? YAY!

Kirstin is a faerie, Ashley is a cat, Emily is a twister board, and Nora is going as Kirstin. Heh. I'm so excited!

Time to get dressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I'm thinking about being Kaylee for Halloween... Any thoughts?

I'm thinking the pink shirt & overall ensemble, with facial grease smudges and a wrench. (Not real grease, obviously, but a real wrench.

I just wish I had some more crew members to play off of...
At approximately 3:45 yesterday, the following conversation took place:

Me: I have this beautiful costume and nowhere to go!
Shannon: Want to go trick-or-treating for MOVE with us?
Me: Sure.

And so we did.

MOVE is the Mobilization Of Volunteer Efforts. We went from house to house, asking for non-perishible food items for the food shelf. And we tried not to accept candy, honestly we did. But it's not our fault that everywhere we went we heard "You're our first trick-or-treaters. Don't you want some candy?" And really, how can you turn that down?

So not only did I collect a crap-load of food for the hungry, but I also got loads of free candy. It was great.

Then we watched Sleepy Hollow because my new goal is to make Abby watch all the Tim Burton and/or Johnny Depp movies ever.

I forgot how much blood there is in that movie. And yet it doesn't bother me. Hmmmm.

It's cause I'm too focused on Ichabod.

In conclusion, YAY HALLOWEEN!
You guys HAVE to read this. It even has to do with Halloween. If you have read the first three Harry Potter books it will make sense and make you laugh like I did. If not you will be confused and probably won't see what's so funny. Also, SHAME ON YOU! READ THEM!

And it only makes reference to sex occassionally. Not explicitly. And really, isn't everything more fun with sex?
