Shocktober


Boo!

This time of year always feels busier than the rest-- summer is over and the art world wakes up and suddenly it's Halloween and I completely missed out on seeing the fall leaves upstate. Is there still time? My sources tell me no but I'm trying not to think about it. It has already snowed.

This year in particular has been busier than ever. As of November 3rd I will be sitting at a new desk with a new commute and new coffee carts and new everything. I am leaving my job at the magazine and moving to a Chelsea gallery on Wednesday. This is actually happening! TRICK OR TREAT!

It's also my birthday today, did you know that? I was born on Halloween twenty-something years ago today. The doctor who delivered me was dressed up as a vampire and my dad's friend requested 'Sarah' by Jefferson Starship to play on the local Kalamazoo radio. It's not a very good song but how sweet of him!

I want to say here, in this little space of mine in the blogosphere, that it will all soon slow down. Once I start my new job and figure out a routine, everything will just stop spinning so quickly. But I know better. Halloween marks the gateway to turkeys and gift wrapping and kissing at midnight. And if I play my cards right I'll be pulling my hair out in Miami one month from today. Deep breath.

Happy Halloween, my lovelies. Keep it classy out there.

I love, love the Charlie Brown clip. I did want to tell you that it was the med tech that drew my blood the night you were born that was dressed as a vampire...not the doctor ;-0 doesn't that seem appropriate? I'll be thinking of you at your new desk.

I had to play the Great Pumpkin clip again...it makes me feel warm all over which is strange as it is a bit depressing for all involved.
