ghostly things are gonna happen

Halloween is getting close. I can tell by an increase in the number of search engine hits I've been getting for the blog entry I wrote a year ago (exactly) about the novelty song "Halloween Spooks." Check out this mash-up video of the song with "Dark Shadows" footage.

The trick-or-treaters who come to our house this year will be gifted with new Spooky Friends from the makers of Marshmallow Peeps. My wife bought a bag of them and I must admit that I have already tried one and liked it. The individually wrapped piece of sugar-coated marshmallow goodness was perfect for me. The wrapper was somewhat difficult to open, which helped me eat only one. The problem I have with the traditional Peeps package is that once I open it, I want to eat all twelve or fifteen Peeps within.

The bag of Spooky Friends says that it contains "about 54 individually wrapped pieces." At the supermarket today I saw a package with ghosts, mummies and pumpkins. Until I looked it up, I thought the mummies were space aliens. The bag my wife bought has skulls, bats and spiders. The individual wrapping caused the company to outsource the manufacturing to China. As long as they're not coated in lead paint, I'm fine with it.

We're gearing up for a double halloween party at our house this Saturday night. The 1st one is for our 7-yr-old daughter and her friends. The 2nd one is for our 14-yr-old son and his friends. My wife goes crazy with decorations.

I haven't heard "Halloween Spooks" yet this year. I'm probably one of the few KROQ listeners who gets a laugh out of Bean playing that song.

To you and yours, Happy Halloween!
