Well, in case you were wondering where the hell I've been...my family and I are about to move! This is, overall, good news. We'll be moving to a better neighborhood, with a MUCH better house to haunt!!
Like most things in life, there is a downside. It appears we will be moving the weekend before Halloween!! ARRRRGH! This means that we won't be able to put out any of our decorations, other than a few Jack O's. You can imagine how distressing this is for me. No graveyard on the lawn, no Grim Reaper hanging from the tree, no spider-webs shrouding our home. Right now, those items are in storage, and it seems pointless to dig them out to only pack them up again. Hey, that coffin is a b!tch to move!!! I'm one sad monster about all this.
Still, this is the sacrifice that must be made for the here-and-now. Will there be no Halloween this year for the Ghastly Gill clan? Of COURSE there will be! We may not be able to turn our house into the usual museum of morbid delights, but we still will dress up and take to the streets! Sure, it won't be the same, but we'll still enjoy ourselves on the High Holiday. Best part about all of this? I'm already planning Halloween 2012!!!
