Nice Work, Bone Daddy - My Life in Halloweens

Watching: The Nightmare Before Christmas

Happy Halloween-a-ween!

I have noticed that most of my Halloweens (Halloween being my 2nd favorite holiday) have been different since I went to college:

1.) From high-school up until Freshman year of college I had been trick-or-treating with my sisters, cousins and THEIR friends (because mine in high-school were apparently too cool to get free candy...what what? :P) In those days I was a Bunny (age 3), Dorothy (various years), a Werewolf (age 10), Kagome from Inu-Yasha (age 16), and a random snake monster guy...(age 12) and a Witch (one of those years), Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas...and a bunch of other things that I can't remember :P

2.) Freshman year of college I trick-or-treated as Groucho Marx but it was kind of lame for various reasons...one being that students from the neighboring high-school would play pranks on the college students and vice-versa. That's when I decided that trick-or-treating was done for me.

3.) Sophomore year of college I worked as a Resident Adviser and always worked on Wednesdays. Well, Halloween was on a Wednesday that night...I will never forget. That was the first time in my whole life that I was not able to celebrate Halloween ON Halloween night. Still, I dressed up as the Bride of Frankenstein, and I handed out candy at my desk and I dealt with puking freshmen. That night I watched The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Creature from the Black Lagoon with my then boy-friend who came to visit me that night.


4.) Junior year of college I was studying in England for a few months and we celebrated Halloween in good 'ol Canterbury, England. My costume was last minute but clever...I was a Zombie British school-girl. We pre-gamed at our apartments then we walked to the Jolly Sailor pub and drank snake bites, ate candy and danced on tables. That was a great Halloween fo sho ;)

5.) Senior year of college was AMAZING. My good friend, Kate, came to visit for a whole week and we watched scary movies to the point of a snuggle fest every night for fear of being stabbed to death by psycho, goblin Asians with needles... O_o and other scary things... Did I mention that we slept with my Halloween lights on all night too? We also performed The Rocky Horror Show at my college (I played Janet Weiss) and on Halloween night we went to Albert's to sing and dance karaoke. I was dressed as Stephen King's Carrie.

6.) My sister India and I were able to dress up and go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom and trick-or-treat, eat junk food, scare small children and watch the fireworks, parade and skanky Villians Show. That was an amazing bonding moment for me and my sister that we both will never forget. Now this year for Halloween I will be working again but at least I will be at the Magic Kingdom working the Halloween parades. It will be interesting because I will be seeing all kinds of amazing costumes! yay! and who knows what could happen the whole night...having a different Halloween every year is important I think...if you keep it the same then you'll get bored with it. So, I am glad mine have been different these past few years. Oh yes...and I was a werewolf ;)



Captain EO (featuring George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and...Mikey Jackson)

So I had a pretty wild day yesterday! I went to Epcot in Disney and celebrated the 15th Food & Wine Festival. It was nice to smell all of the food and see all of the different kinds of drinks that they had. I didn't drink because, well, I simply didn't feel like it plus it was far too expensive. BUT I did have lunch! I went to the Greece booth and got Spanakopita and I went to the Charcuterie & Cheese cart to get some cheese fondue with croutons and roasted peppers. I then proceeded to the Ireland booth to top it off with warm chocolate lava cake with Baily's Irish cream ganache. MMMMMM so good! Afterwords I went to England and sat in the Rose Garden and studied for the GRE as I drank Twinning's Iced Tea and listened to "Hey Jude" play in the background by a live band. I then stopped by France but couldn't stay for very long because I became too nostalgic :( so I moved to Japan where I bought a Little Red Riding Hood stationary set as well as witnessed a wedding proposal at the Japanese Pearl Counter! So kawaii!!
I also decided that I would go on a couple of rides that I hadn't been on in a awhile: Honey, I Shrunk the Audience and Imagination with Figment (which had been changed...for the better, I might add!). When I made my way over there I realized that Honey was gone! It had been replaced by a 1986 experiment created by George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. A 3D science fiction musical starring Michael Jackson - It was called Captain EO.

Wild, right? That's what I thought too! So, I thought, I gotta give this a try! I got in the theater and put on my 3D glasses and noticed that I was surrounded by families with very small kids AND 30-something year old cult followers of this "Captain EO". Ladies and Gentlemen...what you are about to witness is the 3D cult classic that I watched only a few hours ago in Walt Disney's Epcot Center (without the 3D of course). There is no describing this 20 minute film...you just have to watch it yourself:

Part 1

Part 2

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! I couldn't believe what was happening in front of me! It was The Dark Crystal  meets The Wiz or whatever. I loved it! The next paycheck I get I'm spending my hard earned monies on Captain EO merch.

Love & Peace!

I'm so in love with it! Pass it on to your friends if you agree!


In other news...the roomies and I have a place we call heaven here in Orlando. It's called Planet Smoothie and it is absolutely amazing! They have the best smoothies ever created. Not too watery and not too thick either. Not only are they full of yummy goodness (whether you are in the mood for something healthy or something calorie-filled) but they also have special "powder" thrown into the mix. This powder can be fiber blast or fat burner or an energy blast or even an immunity blast!! No matter how you are feeling that day you can get a powder blast that can help you through the day. The smoothies also have awesome names such as Yo' Adriane!, Werewolf, Java the Nut, Razmanian Devil, Frozen Goat, Thelma & Louise and Screamsicle. My favorite? The Lunar Lemonade with a fat burner blast. <3 mmmmm!

Love & Peace!

Listening to: Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me - Rosemary Clooney

  Hey guys sorry about my update fail :/ I have been busy with work, studying and socializing with my new friends! Speaking of new friends...here is my friend Janice's blog! (Year Of Adventure). Janice has amazing narration and really funny stories! Enjoy!

So I have a lot to cover in the past few...uh....weeks.

First of all I broke my camera :( I was at a club and some how it got smashed...so now I have nothing. Luckily my roomies are generous and they let me borrow their cameras when I go on my little adventures by myself.

Just recently we found a few little buggy-like critters in our apartment at Vista Way. A few weeks ago I found one little flea on my foot. I tried to catch it and drown it...but to no avail. I figured a flea was kinda important to talk about so I let my roomies know that I had found one. Kare was hilarious...

"But I thought fleas were only on animals...we don't have animals," she said.

"Well, fleas don't just hang out on animals," I had said. "They bite humans too."

Kare's eyes widened with disbelief, "They BITE????"

We then got into a huge discussion on what fleas are capable of and just how nasty they are. Kare hyperventilated.  So that was the flea incident (oh and we never found another one after that...) and there was also the cockroach.

Now, I wasn't here for the this one but I believe this is how it went down: Last week Kellie and Kare were sitting in the living room when they saw a huge black...thing...crawling around in the kitchen. Kellie yelp and Kare kept yelling "Kill it! Kill it!" but the cockroach got away. Kare was so afraid that the little guy would come back (and with friends) that she ran to the store and bought Roach Killer. After spraying the whole kitchen as well as outside our door, Kare asked if it would actually kill the roach. Bis and I looked at the picture advertised on the Roach Killer can:

 "That bug on the can looks dead..." I said. "I think it will kill them."

Oh yes, and I told you that Kare also sprayed outside, yes? well, Florida is infested with Love Bugs humping each other all over the place and after she had sprayed and we opened our front door *Psycho Music* :O DEAD LOVE BUGS EVERYWHERE!!! It was a good 'ol graveyard outside our front door. "I feel like I have to say a prayer every time I walk out here," Kare said.

More adventures soon, guys! Love and Peace!
