WO: Weekly Obsessions

In addition to it being Halloween (and a top-three holiday in my book), it’s also my 70th WO post — I’m ready to paaaar-taaaay!

So … Happy Halloween, y’all. I can say that because, as you see, I dressed as America’s favorite mush-mouthed Toddler & Tiara. Sadly, I couldn’t find anyone who’d come with me as The Human Thumb (Mama June), but I did find enough go-go juice to keep me hopped up on sugar for hours.

And now for a Halloween-inspired week of obsessions:

  1. TMNT Carving: Forget the pumpkins this year and carve watermelons, instead. These enviable renditions of Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael will make any home a happy one.
  2. Frosted Candy Bar Stuffed Cookie Cups: Take those leftover fun-size candy bars (assuming they’ve survived) and bake up some gooey goodies. Think I’m the devil for sharing these? At least I didn’t send you here.
  3. Throwback Costumes: Little kids won’t know any different whether they’re a ladybug or something more creative, so why not dress them up like a Golden Girl or the “Dumb & Dumber” guys?
  4. “Monster Mash”: Because it’s the quintessential Halloween song and I said so.

 

Happy Haunting — y’all better redneckognize!

30 Days of Thanks (Part Deux)

It’s been an emotional week in the Wittyburg world, so forcing myself to think of things I’m thankful for has proven quite cleansing. Presenting seven more little bits of gratitude:

  • 8. Veterans, because we owe them a lifetime of gratitude for their service.
  • 9. Fall candles, which are keeping my apartment smelling as cozy as ever.
  • 10. The Target Lady on SNL, because she loves “cayn-dles” and I love her for it.
  • 11. My closest co-workers, who help me to find the silliness in everyday situations.
  • 12. Pinterest, for keeping the attention of this self-diagnosed A.D.D. sufferer. (Let me know if you want an invite!)
  • 13. USF, for FINALLY getting a Big East win this football season — praise it!
  • 14. “Dumb and Dumber,” because it’s the one movie that will make me laugh no matter what I’ve gone through.

I’m hoping the roller coaster of emotions I’ve recently experienced is coming to an end soon. In the meantime, watching Harry Dunne, Lloyd Christmas and Target Lady will just have to do (darn).
