Well , here we are in the first day of October! The Halloween month. This is one of my favorite times of the year and I have been anxiously awaiting it since seeing Halloween decorations back in August. I’ll be doing more to celebrate this year and will even be dressing up. To start the month off right I did some decorating at my place. So, I thought I’d share with the blogosphere some of the things I’ve done so far. Now, I didn’t make my own haunted house or anything because, basically, I’m broke. But, I made do with some stuff I found at the dollar store. I just have to say I freaking love the dollar stores so damn much I want to marry them! They used to not have too great of stuff, but you can find some really good deals now and decent merchandise. And I’m cheap as hell so this works out great for me!
Anyways, most of the decorations usually fall to the entertainment center. Aside from the DVD’s, stereo, and TV there really isn’t much else on it. So, we take advantage of the extra space to decorate for all the holidays. First off is the middle of the entertainment center which is enclosed with sliding glass doors. I made that a mini cemetery. I still need to add more to it, but for now I worked with what I had. If I had a lot of money I would make an actual haunted house and charge a ridiculous amount to let people in and make a huge profit. (Hhhmm…note to self, have haunted house next year and rip off the neighbors.) Anyhoo, here’s a few pics of some of the stuff (so far) up.
That pumpkin lights up. Here’s a video of the skull I have on the other side that also lights up.
I would’ve taken more pictures, but it was hot yesterday and I really just wanted to sit in front of my fan and not do anything. Taking pictures requires movement and I wasn’t having anymore of it yesterday.
Also, in the recent trend of ‘grow your own’ stuff. I decided to purchase a grow your own Halloween Goblin. Which is really just a pumpkin head attached to an orange body with what appears to be overalls on.
Apparently he’s supposed to grow 600% his size in the standard 72 hours. Here’s the little guy before going into the drink.
And here we have him laying comfortably in his own private pool. And yes, that is a football shaped chip dish. Come on, you people should know me by now! If it’s football or Spiderman, I probably own it.
I’ll post again on Friday (maybe Saturday) and show you the progress. The package says I can grow him over and over again. So, he’s just the gift that keeps on giving. I think I’ll call him Bubba.
So, that’s how I spent a portion of my day. I’m tired now. I’m going to sit in front of my flashing skull and enjoy a mini Jones Halloween soda.
