Chicagoween

Quoth the Raven, “Nobody does it like they do in Chicago.”

Maybe I’m paraphrasing. But people here have been celebrating Halloween for the last week at least, with no signs of a slow-down going into the weekend. Maybe it’s because I really only know theatre people, and–well, any excuse to dress up!–or if the natural instinct is to get out as much as possible before the city freezes over and it becomes a martyring act to leave one’s apartment.

Regardless, I have left the house and been flitting around like a butterfly EVERY night this week. I know, be proud of me, I’m such an introvert it’s stupid.

There’s been pumpkin carving:

This one's mine. Not too shabby, right? Until you see...

My boyfriend's Heisenberg pumpkin. What a show-off. (Hi, love! Just kidding!)

And the acquisition of festive sweaters:

Which I will continue to wear all year. PS Look at this spooky mirror!

and the requisite Halloween party, hosted by some good friends:

and now it’s officially November, and I’m kicking it off with an audition today and then a full 8 hours of work. Happy weekend, everyone!

PS please share pictures of your fall activities. I want to see!
