It’s almost that time of year again! The day that I always insist is my favorite holiday, yet the one I’ve become increasingly ambivalent about as I get older and lazier. I can’t believe I just said that out loud. It hurts to do so. But Halloween for me is evolving into more of a source of stress than entertainment. If there was a costume fairy that would deliver an awesome get-up to my front door, complete with plans for where to wear it, that would be a different story. However, the amount of effort required, not only to think of something creative to don but to then go out and execute it, has turned into more of a chore than a delight. This year, it’s not so much that I want to go out for Halloween as much as I don’t want to NOT have gone. Know what I mean? So I’m still on the fence as to whether or not there will be a dead German girl roaming the streets of Queens in a week. There may be a dead American chick trapped inside a warehouse on 11th avenue however because I bought tickets to the scariest haunted house in America without realizing how ridiculously intense it is and now I am legitimately scared. Anyway! Here are some links:
