Happy Halloween



There are many great qualities about Christian and, although he has a great sense of humor, I don't know that I would say he is a funny person. On the other hand, every now and then he really catches me off guard and makes me laugh, alot. When I woke up this morning I found a Halloween Mix CD sitting on the island for me. One would think he has some extra time on his hands and he really doesn't. So, my soundtrack for the day went something like this:

Leslie Anne Levine - The Decembrists
Gost of Tom - Aviso
Scary Mosnsters - Bowie
Wicked Annabella - The Kinks
Caring is Creepy - The Shins
Horrow Show - The Libertines
Ghost - Neutral Milk Hotel
Season of the Witch - Donovan
Wickerman - Pulp
The Rat - The Walkmen
Walking the Ghost - James
Something Wicked - British Sea Power
Laughter - James
International Rock Star (my personal favorite scary song) - The Stars
She's Not There - The Zombies
They're Not Witches - Guided By Voices
Sweet Black Magic - Ryan Adams
Tuff Ghost - The Unicorns
The Butterfly Collector - The Jam
Little Ghost - The White Stripes
Bloody Thirsty Bastards - Dirty Pretty Things
Evil and Heathen - Franz Ferdinand
She Spider - Mew


It was wonderful and silly and a total treat but, more than anything, it was a good reminder that sometimes it is okay to lighten up.

La Luz had a big night and was loaded down with candy and various Halloween treats. The butterfly costume was a huge success. I wish she had a bit more stamina but she was wiped out by 6:30. Sometimes I forget she is only 16 months old.
