No big Halloween plans… thank God!

Thank God the nieces are teenagers do this year’s Halloween is just me myself and I. It is really hard to dumb down or make kid friendly Halloween crap. Just the thought of it gives me a headache. The ultra campiness of it all makes me feel dirty because I know a lot of it is very much like the stuff Oak Park, il espouses on annual basis for this time of year.

To the point no one really knows how to be scary and give these little kids a fright. Now this year I can get a costume not worry about entertainment, food, drinks or decorations and go out and cause havoc. But obviously not in oak park, il anyone in this burb is lucky to be wake past 8pm.

Yawnnnnnn boring!

Halloween Idea #417 for Oak Park, Il “fun”

I also found for you pumpkin carving mother fucker’s stencils for each of your zodiac signs. I thought this was interesting if you are having one of those longer (time-consuming) parties with friends and wanted to do something unique or just wanted to add some flair to a tedious but traditional Halloween activity. Just have a pinterest account and a printer to get the stencils for these designs, plus the usual pumpkin carving equipment and viola!

Halloween projects for the kids

So to keep my niece and nephew busy this Halloween (I am not sure if the older niece would partake) I found some more crafty stuff to have them do while they are in my presence so that I am not running the streets with two kids not my own! The great thing was that I got it from an email by World Market (yeah, I am one of those a-holes!).

This is the original article link right here:

https://www.worldmarket.com/blog/tag/kids-halloween/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=wk29_halloweenshop&utm_source=wmblog&CAMP=211701&RRID=9007223

However, to make it more savor and easier to pick from I divided the projects down from the original article to their separate links to make it easier to read and print off the instructions at work, because that is what we are all going to do anyway! Hopefully you and the kids you have to entertain find something enjoyable to do and keep them off streets and occupied after a long day of trick or treating.

These are the individual project links with the descriptions as headings:

Halloween Idea #416 for Oak Park, Il “fun”

I found another cool thing for Halloween parties this is a Blood Orange cocktail great for ADULT parties (I had to put that disclaimer in there) drinks a plenty bitches! This is a great way to disguise the adult drinks from the kids you might have at your Halloween party and just strange enough to deterring that one punk ass kid from sneaking around trying get a sip.

Here is the link:

I also found another list (on Imgur IKR?) of great horror films so if you are throwing a party on Halloween or just staying in, this list is great for entertainment ideas for that night. Most of these movies you should already know but a refresh is always good especially if you are trying to put a party and the entertainment together at the last minute.

To create that fog effect as simply as possible I found directions online through a company in the area that creates dry ice, just not that it is very crazy ass to handle, upon that you must store it properly because dry ice is just carbon dioxide gas frozen. Therefore, if you like to live and breathe storage of the product must be taken seriously if I do go through the dry ice/fog idea I will probably store it on the back porch of the apartment.

Oak Park, IL blog update 10/17

What the hell I have been doing? Well good question I usually write and post these blogs like five at once but recently school has been a pain in the ass and that is one of my issues getting stuff done. Being online for school does not mean that the teachers understand the concept of “working individual” meaning that you do not have your mommy and daddy paying you’re your room and board or you are living at a dorm and school in the main thing you have to do in this world. Meaning I love last minute adjustments to major assignments and added readings to complete in a two-day time span for 40% of my grade it’s just peachy. Everyone who has gone to school and worked and had their own place can understand it is not pretty.

Then since it is October the Cubs are in the playoffs, as a Cubs fan back in the day we just wrote off October and switched to hockey but not nowadays! After that first nail biting series with the Washington Nationals all of us in Cubs nation have to realign our schedules and adjust our heart medication due to these near misses. Now it is time for Los Angeles and hopefully back to the World Series even though IT IS very hard to do. I believe that the Cubbies will go all the way.

Add to that the season that we are in, Halloween, I am decorating and getting candy, go to the store for miscellaneous stuff for costumes and what not. I have posts already written for October and scheduled to post all the way through in case my school work got funky (just one term to go!) and my Cubbies were having troubles as they are in LA right now and had in Washington Dc. I have the plastic containers out and have a quarter of my stuff hung, I also decorated my outside door that leads to the main hallway and the neighbor copied my example, the cunt bitch.

Then whatever parties I may have to go with friends, while juggling nieces and nephews who want me to hang out with them on Halloween or before then, buying candy that I will eat and then some for the kids. But that will hopefully will not all turn into a mess this October and will be a great month all the way around.
