I know this is something a semi-grown woman should be a bit past by now, but I can't help it.
If you dress up as a member of the Peanuts (other than Pigpen, and you're a guy) for Halloween, I'll probably make out with and/or marry you. They just make me so happy.
In middle school there were rumors we were going to do a production of "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown," and while it never came to fruition, I firmly believe that I would've made a most excellent Lucy Van Pelt, and I haven't even had my formal vocal training by then!
|I mean, amiright? Just look at that face!|
As it was, it worked out fine, it allowed me to take a brief sabbatical before taking on the role of a lifetime the next year: Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker". I was in high school for that one, a freshman, with the LEAD, unheard of! Okay, so maybe it was double cast and I only got to do one show...but so what, who cares? My performance brought people to tears (those people may or may not be limited to my mother and aunt).
Naturally, I make time to watch every Charlie Brown holiday special each year. Note, this is not as serious as Hocus Pocus night, because I own the Charlie Brown holiday specials (thanks to Emilia Bedilia) and thus I can watch them whenever I please, should I miss them on TV.
I'll also be preparing for my Halloween celebrations by making "Jell-O" in the FREE Kraft Brain-Shaped Jell-O Mold I got from Coupon Suzy. As my former boss used to say, it's going to be really "festive".
On the coupon tip, I was unable to track down any paper circulars yesterday, but my friend Buster as well as Jaques and Gilly gave me some excellent tips!:
- Ask for the circulars from places that sell papers (i.e. Starbucks, Newsstands, 7-11, etc.)
- Go directly to the manufacturer, if they don't have coupons online, write to them and tell them you like their product, they'll probably send you some!
- Look through your building's recycling bin, people might think you're homeless, but the savings are worth it. (sidenote, I may have come up with this one myself)
BONUS CONTEST: Because why not take a crazy chance? If you can guess the color of the "Jell-O" I'm making, and are not Hot Donna who already knows, you will be my "Reader of the Week" and get a shout out in tomorrow's entry. Spooktacular! Extra bonus points may apply if you also "do a crazy dance".
