It’s the Great Pumpkin, Snarly Brown!

It’s time for some Friday linkage, Howloween style…

  1. First up, your punny pet names: Sheddy Krueger, Snarly Brown, Goosey VanPelt, and Peppermint Catty.
  2. Apparently, all movies are horror movies at heart. Who knew?
  3. So, what are you dressing up as this year? If you’re in need of an idea, might I recommend one of these options? (Whatever you do, just promise me you’re not going as a sexy antelope or sexy Marie Curie or anything like that. That’s right, I’m giving you the side eye, sexy giraffe and sexy fox.)
  4. Alternatively, you can’t go wrong with a red panda costume.
  5. Holy crap, you guys. Someone please start a blog where they do this when their dog takes naps.
  6. Speaking of dogs in costumes, I did enjoy these funny (and punny) ones.
  7. Don’t worry, cat lovers, I didn’t forget about you. Your felines can be sweet or salty this year. Your choice.
  8. Do you like pranks? *Insert disapproving Amy Poehler face here.*
  9. Anyway, Halloween is an excuse for culinary creativity. You could make these gummy spiders. Or you can just whip up a batch of Halloween sangria.

So wrong, yet so right:

In case you missed any of them, here are last week’s posts:

That’s all for now, pals. Any Howloween plans for the weekend?

  1. I usually hold a party on Halloween asking every guest to bring a bag of candy to help us deal with the 600+ kids who come to our door.

    This year I didn’t feel up to hosting with a counter-surfing foster lab to keep track of at the same time. I guess I’ll just put on my red panda costume and hang out inside with the lights off.

  2. Ha, “Scary Mary” and the Willy Wonka Asylum video were really funny! I remember watching Willy Wonka as a kid and loving it…then my sister and I watched it again a few years ago and were like “What the crap? This guy’s crazy and this movie is a bit scary for kids…especially the tunnel part with the chicken getting its head chopped off!”

    Obviously the mother that staged all of those extremely creative scenes during her son’s nap time was: A. a first time mom with no other children, B. a stay at home mom (nothing wrong with that), and C. had no dogs that would walk all across her scenery and wake up the baby every time the mailman came…oh, and I’ll add a “D” for good measure: D. she had 30 hours in a day, instead of the usual 24 hours the rest of us have. 😉 But really, very cool idea. I’d seen something like this a year or two ago with someone else’s baby. I might be able to stage something with Chloe since she’s deaf and sleeps 23.5 hours a day, but then I’d have to do something with Riley in the meantime to keep her from stepping all over Chloe!
