Terra out of town

So she left for the church retreat yesterday. Some place up in the mountains with no cell phone coverage. She’ll be back tomorrow. This is the first time we’ve been apart since we got married.

Last night, Wesley and I watched Resident Evil – first time for both of us. Meh. But it was a perfectly acceptable Halloween movie choice.

Thursday night, we all watched Scream. And we let Wesley watch it with us. I’d never seen it and it is exactly the sort of movie I don’t think he should be watching. There’s a big difference between a monster hurting people and a human with a mask hurting people. But, he did show some interest in being Ghostface for Halloween. That would be cheaper than a Ghostbuster.

Terra and I had another Halloween month lazy Wednesday morning. We watched a few Halloween episodes of TV shows (incl. Freaks & Geeks, Tales from the Darkside, and The Muppet Show) and that was fun.

Today, Wesley and I are gonna go out, run a couple errands, have a little fun, maybe lunch at Jason’s Deli.

And the weather has been absolutely perfect for days now. All the doors and windows open from morning until bedtime. The living room gets a bit too warm in the afternoon but I just close the blinds and turn on the ceiling fan and it’s fine. This is the weather I wish would last year round. Fall is just my favorite time of the year.

Enjoying some days off

Kathy Force came for coffee yesterday. It was a great time. She and Terra and I hung out in the cafe, I made her a mocha latte with that great Torani dark choc syrup, then she also ended up having a press of some of the last of the MTC Kenya AA we have. She really enjoyed it.

It sounds like she might start coming by every Monday. We’re all for it.

Before she showed up, we ordered some Juicy Vapor liquids. Ecto Plasma, of course, and we’re trying Vape the Rainbow (Skittles) and Blueberry Granita. We’re really looking forward to trying some new stuff from them.
Btw, once again, their Volusion checkout didn’t work so I had to call and order over the phone.

Terra and Karen (all that’s left of their group) are now meeting Monday afternoons so that’s easier than evenings. And this is a month we want evenings for movies.

So, Monday night we had sort of a slumber party makeup night since we didn’t do it on Sunday. We got a dvd from Netflix of Elvira hosting a double feature of the original House on Haunted Hill and Night of the Living Dead. We watched them in bed. I’ve never seen the former (and, uh, meh) and the latter was as good as ever.

Today, we did a little running around. Nothing exciting but it’s always great to just be able to go out after so long being trapped in Alamogordo. The novelty has not yet worn off. October 8 was one year since the long hardship times ended. That’s the day we were officially fully on our own two feet.
And we’re glad she’s off no matter what we do. She had that stupid all day class two days last week so we only had one day off.

And, btw, October 1 was three years since we started vaping. We smoked once in a while for a couple more months so we haven’t been smoke free for fully three years, but still.

Tonight, as Halloween month continues, we watched Men in Black II. We’ve never seen it. Now I know why. I gave it 3 out of 10.

Oh yeah, and Terra has finally been cleared from work this weekend so she IS going to the church retreat! :)
And she got all three of her work days off but doesn’t leave until Friday so we have an extended week :)
(But she appears to be getting sick now. She spent all day with a throbbing headache nothing apparently can touch and a mild fever that comes and goes.)

And, btw, the last couple days, we’ve been playing a little of The Typing of the Dead on Dreamcast. I still have two official Dreamcast keyboards, even. It’s a perfect weird Halloween game (Game Informer Magazine named it the weirdest game of all time) and we were having a great time with it. And then today, it refuses to boot. DAMMIT!!! My Dreamcast is so old, it had a hard time booting anything that isn’t in perfect condition and my copy of ToTD is pretty scratched.
And I didn’t even get pics or vids of us playing. Grrrrr.

Best Halloween month ever so far, and a pause for Balloon Fiesta

Already eleven Halloween movies watched, including four hosted by Joe Bob Briggs on MonsterVision (ya’ know that late night show on TNT in the 90s) and all four Phantasm movies, the latter three of which neither of us had ever seen. There has been non-stop Halloween Internet radio – a couple stations play songs, a couple play haunted house sounds and similar soundscapes and one even plays both. Many episodes of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes have played. And I took Walmart up in their Monster Cereals deal and the discontinued two – Frute Brute (attn Quentin Tarantino) and Yummy Mummy – are available this year…

Wesley gets to eat this for breakfast on non-school days. Speaking of which, he is off today and tomorrow and then another Thurs and Fri two weeks from now. So I’m making these Halloween days where he owns the living room all day and watches Halloween movies and such and even a couple Halloween games (like Ghostbusters and Silent Hill) and maybe some sugary snacks.

Oh, and Art Bell is back and we’ve been listening to a horror story on Pseudopod every night when she gets off work, so between all that and the great Internet radio stations out there, we have plenty to listen to.

We love Halloween and start all this at the beginning of October and make a whole month of it but there is always the one pause during the first week and that’s Balloon Fiesta. We went on the 6th, it was awesome. I shot a couple hundred HD videos, Terra shot almost three hundred photos on my Sony DSLR. That is all still being edited into one presentation and, needless to say, it’s a huge job. I finally have a first rough cut and it’s 29 minutes – I want it under 20.
When it’s done, I’ll post it. Until then, I leave you with the videographer and photographer…
