Halloween Movie Night

It was Halloween Movie Night yesterday and we watched Poltergeist, an oldie but a goody.

Attendance was a little spotty. Some of the guests were involved in a traffic incident earlier in the day and were still at the hospital. Last report: everyone was going to be okay, but there were stitches involved.

The other invitees might have been discouraged by the late invitations. My fault - I'm apparently not so good at Evite.com. That no one had responded in two weeks should have been the tip-off. Anyway, there were four of us.

I'm thinking this group would make a good posse - an entourage, if you will. Everyone needs a posse!

In addition to the scary movie, there was scary food. Camille has been hard at work for weeks devising her food.

Blood Punch

Witches Fingers

Kitty Litter Cake

Not pictured was the chili (not so scary), the green potato salad (still tasty) or the fried rice with pink tuna (which the cats would have really liked to had a taste of).

The following pictures are fun because of the mirror. I've never been able to see both sides of myself at the same time - I'm not sure I like it.


After the dinner we watched the movie, then came back to the apartment and watched a different, less scary movie, but on Blu-Ray which makes everything better. Camille and Will kept falling asleep. Actually, Will pretty much slept through the whole thing. I don't know if this is a testament to my living space's inherently relaxing vibe, the dullness of movie night or the amount of alcohol in the Blood Punch, but I'm going with the alcohol.

Also of note, I beat Will at Madden 09. Final score, 21-14 on a last second touchdown. Go Houston!
