“you’re my mask; you’re my cover, my shelter”
I regret to inform you that there will be no costume this Halloween. It just didn’t work out. Mostly, i don’t have any plans for Halloween, and, well, you know about “all dressed up with nowhere to go.” There were discussions of hosting a Halloween party, but this is just not the year for it. The house is not really prepared for guests. Which brings me to my Happy Halloween post!
The plastic is the result of walking in two days ago to find that “leaks under the window rather a bit” had been joined by “Oh, fuck! Who turned the faucet on in the blinds?!” Oh, and the rotten wood in the corner is the siding. Well, there is aluminum siding over it, but you can see that from the inside. hmm. On the bright side, wherever that water was coming from is sealed up – that, at least, is just old damage.
This is, in an immediate sense, spookier than the first picture. That last one? That is all mold – everything that’s not wood (or crowbar). However, this is the kitchen floor, which you may remember my mentioning previously is done. All that terrifying stuff? Gone.
As such, the first picture is much, much scarier. Because it’s kind of way beyond me. Oh, and for added Halloweeny goodness, the roof leaks too. I don’t think i’ve mentioned my newfound antipathy for rain.
Anyhow, while i don’t have much in the way of plans for tonight, i will be donning my glow-in-the-dark skeleton shirt (when i get out of my pj’s) and giving out candy to tricker-treaters for the first time. I’m kind of keen on that idea. I’ll show y’all our pumpkin once it’s dark and lit up, too. It’s really cute. You didn’t think i’d scorned Halloween completely, did you?
