Happy Halloween to all the ghosts and goblins in the blogosphere! I hope you had a delightfully ghoulish day and an equally fantastic night. I love the fun of Halloween. At work, there are several people that go all out with amazing costumes and creations. Unquestionably, I admire their creativity and bravery. Not only do they dress up, but these guys go into character. I mean, I can wear a costume, but it is tough to get into character.
One of my co-workers, our marketing guru, goes hog wild for Halloween. Every year he pulls off a wildly different and authentic costume. Last year, he was John Lennon. This year, he was the Godfather. As is the case every year, he absolutely nailed it! His officer was awesomely decorate with all the accouterments one would expect from the Don on the day of his daughter’s wedding. Twinkies, poker chips, beverages, music, playing cards and framed music. Everything about the execution, pun intended, of his character and his office was absolutely pitch perfect. Undoubtedly, he has inspired me and my leadership team to up our game next Halloween.
At Zumba, Halloween is always a fun week as I breakout Michael Jackon’s Thriller. The girls and I love dancing to a little MJ. It’s a nice change of pace from the usual Zumba music. Not to mention, its a bit nostalgic. I think we all remember when the Thriller video debuted. It was incredible. There’s nothing like it on MTV today, which is a shame.
Meanwhile on the home front, Jake’s spending his Halloween at work. Goalielocks went to a friend’s house for a party and trick or treating. Lastly, the Mayor reluctantly went trick or treating. I couldn’t believe he didn’t want to go! I remember growing up we’d go as far as we could to get as much candy as possible. It wasn’t always easy because the weather in Minnesota was bitterly cold and snowy. Nevertheless, we’d make my mom take us miles and miles. Halloween was all about getting the biggest candy hull possible. Apparently, that isn’t the case with today’s kids. If I were a kid now, I’d go to every house in my neighborhood not just our loop.
Lastly, as the trick or treaters wind down, we’ll start binge watching the second season of Stranger Things. Can I tell you how excited I am to be current on the “hot show?” I mean, we just finished “Big Love” like a year ago and that’s been off the air for over six years. Amazingly, the entire family is into this show. The hubby and I love it because it reminds us of the movies of our youth. It’s like the awesomeness of ET, Goonies, Stand By Me all in one. Not to mention the soundtrack is amazing. Moreover, the girl that plays Eleven is simply incredible. It is some of the best acting you’ll see bar none. She’s amazing! I won’t post spoilers here because that will ruin the fun for others. Meanwhile, I’m happy to be starting season 2 tonight.
Was there ever as doubt as to tonight’s music video? I thought not… Enjoy MJ’s epic Thriller
