Halloween Hoopla

Despite what stores would have you think, it's not Christmas yet...it's almost Halloween! Here are some of my suggestions for a good time.

Watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" on Thursday, October 28 at 8pm/7pm Central. This is my second favorite Charlie Brown special (if you don't know my favorite already, click here).

If you're looking for some Halloween reading, I recommend checking out Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The Dude and I checked out the audiobook for a recent road trip and we both really enjoyed it. I never thought I'd be discussing Jane Austen's romantic triangles in the same conversation as learning about the differences between single bladed and double bladed swords but there's a first time for everything!

Last but not least there's the easiest, oldest, and best way to celebrate Halloween: buy too much candy and enjoy the "leftovers" when all the trick or treaters are gone! (or sooner, if you can't take the temptation)

Who's got fun Halloween plans this year?

Interesting that you liked Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! I tried to read it and didn't get very far—I thought it was incredibly boring. Maybe it's better as an audio book?

I don't listen to a lot of audiobooks but I think this was helped by the format. A lot of humor just came from an upper crust British accent talking about zombies. It did have slow parts but as a road trip book I really liked it.

You missed out getting the audiobook.. the paper book has ILLUSTRATIONS of Victorian women kicking zombie rear end. Pretty much the only way I can stand that twit.

I too had to watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"... it's a tradition (one that John does not get or understand).
