i am not a halloweenie


We had a nice long 3 hour meeting today. I didn’t wanna go. I really didn’t. But I did anyway, and I’m glad for it. I ate food. Some food I’ve never had before. A special kind of chicken. Well, the chicken wasn’t special, it was how it was made. I don’t care enough to go look up the spelling (sorry, I’m being lazy) but it was okay. It had mushrooms in it. I’m picky. I dislike mushrooms. It’s fungus. No thanks. There was also what felt like pine needles, or some kind of skinny leafy thing you find on a bush and can poke people with. Not painfully, but you’d feel it nonetheless… but this was on the chicken. I don’t know what it was, but it was poking the inside of my mouth and I was not having it one bit! So I took those off too. Other than that, it was tasty. There were roasted potatoes and ziti that tasted as though it was smothered in some kind of alcoholic beverage. Weird. But edible.


There were also Halloween celebrations going about. Some dressed in their costumes. Some passed out candy. There was also a farewell party, non-Halloween related (see ya later Todd, you taught me well).

I do not celebrate Halloween. You can call it religion if you want to. Knowing where the holiday came from kinda made me not want to give in to the idea of it. Sure it’s not as demonic as it once was back in the day. Well, not in the mainstream. Perhaps in dark alleyways or in the woods… but in the office and on prime time TV, it’s pretty safe and kid friendly. But knowing it started with occults and stuff makes me not so interested.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take any excuse/reason to party and have a good time. I like candy. I like the sweets. I, on occasion, enjoy terrifying small children. I’m just not going out of my way to do anything special on the 31st. I’ll hang a sign on my door that says “tricks only”. But then I’d get whores looking for money (*Arrested Development reference… calm down). Whether I give out tricks or illusions, the kiddies won’t get candy from me. Maybe I’d tie candy on strings, drop them in their bags, and as they walk out, pull the candies back out of their bags again and laugh. Ah… good times.

Since I’m not promoting Halloween, I changed my mind on tomorrows friPod iPick… which was going to be the soundtrack to Little Shop of Horrors. Hilarious movie. Good music. Totally not my pick for tomorrow to coincide with Halloween.

However, I will be DJing tomorrow night at the soup kitchen in Middletown tomorrow night with my church. It’s my only annual gig for our annual Harvest Festival. I sometimes forget being a DJ is on my list of “things to be when I grow up.” Bring the kiddies! I wish I could be wearing either of these shirts:



Anyone wanna donate to my “Buy DJ Sterling Silver an Awesome T-Shirt Fund”? There are many items that need a home.*

Totally unrelated notes: this, and many other posts, totally make me a hypocrit–I like reading shorter blog entries so why do I write such long ones? And I totally found a catalogue for geeky guys like myself: TigerDirect.com. They send me a nice magazine every so often, and I drool in it, thus makes me a true geek. But I want it nonetheless. *Yes yes y’all!
