I asked if he was going far or staying in the area. He said he would be in L.A. for a year, mentioned something about a reality show, then he would move to the east coast. After our chat he whisked me away to a secret room where we drank fizzy lifting drinks until we floated up to the ceiling and got so dangerously close to the fan that we had to burp our way down!

Every year I say I'm going to dress up as Flo, the Progressive Insurance girl. Then I choose a different costume. But I still think it's an adorable idea for a Halloween costume and relatively cheap to put together. Progressive Insurance got smart and created their own "Dress Like Flo" page. It's really cute actually. Check it out.

Yes, you read that correctly. 4D! I can't freakin' wait. The El Capitan Theatre is showing The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D and 4D. The 4D means there will be wind, fog, snow and other amazing wonders. It's playing throughout October and into the first week of November.
Here's the scoop:
You can buy $10 tix on Goldstar (plus $2.50 processing fee). A great deal, but you have to get there super early to get a good seat.
You can spend $23 on the VIP tix from the El Capitan Theater website. You can choose your seat in advance, and you get popcorn and a drink. The BF and I opted for this choice. I think it's worth the extra ten bucks.
You can also pay extra to eat a Pumpkin King Dinner and get a personalized photo and some other crap. Meh. Didn't really interest me.
In other Tim Burton news, this is the last month to see his exhibit at the LACMA, so do yourself a favor and go see it! It's all kinds of badass. They're also doing a lot of extra stuff during the closing weekend (Oct 29 - 31) like throwing parties and extending the hours. Check out LACMA for more info.

I think one of the funniest things in the world is when Charlie Brown tries to make a ghost costume for Halloween and comes out with a sheet full of holes. I don't know why, but I find it hilarious.
I stumbled upon CountdownToHalloween.com and found that every year a bunch of bloggers dedicate the month of October to blogging about Halloween-y type things. A Halloween blogging extravaganza if you will. I felt like the little bumblebee girl in the Blind Melon video who finds a field full of other bumblebee kids. My people!
I signed up to be a Cryptkeeper, of course. The rest of the month will be devoted to writing about Halloween--past Halloweens, upcoming Halloween activities in L.A., favorite Halloween movies, costume ideas. It's basically my love letter to Halloween. I even changed the color of my blog to black so it looks spooky. Clever, I know.
Who knew there were so many fantastic Halloween-esque blogs out there? Check out the list at CountdownToHalloween.com. I'll report back with some of my favorites.

I received my Urban Outfitters catalog in the mail on Friday. This page struck me as a bit odd. One of these things is not like the other. Can you guess which one?
I'll give you a hint. THERE'S A RAT ON THAT GIRL'S HEAD! That's weird, right? I'm all about being fashion forward and taking artsy fartsy pictures, but I gotta draw the weirdness line somewhere. I'm not even sure what piece of clothing they are trying to sell in that photo.

My laziness has been made more apparent by all the well-dressed people in my neighborhood. There are plenty of actresses, actors and models around here, and I am always amazed at how put together they are ALL THE TIME. Walking to the grocery store, taking out the trash, taking the dog for a walk. It doesn't matter how mundane the task is. They always look nice.
There's this one gal in particular who comes to mind because we are on the same dog walking schedule. I usually just roll out of bed and walk Sam first thing, so I'm wearing whatever I slept in plus a large sweatshirt (because I don't feel like putting on a bra). She always looks like a super model. Same thing goes for night-time dog walking.
This is why, if I'm walking my dog and realize I've forgotten my phone, I panic. What if I get kidnapped? That would be bad. Mostly because my boyfriend would have to give a description to the cops of what I was last seen wearing. And the write-up would go something like this:
The missing woman was last seen wearing yoga pants (even though she doesn't do yoga) and a large 2006 Smokey the Bear 5K Fun Run tee shirt. She also had on sandals with socks, presumably because she's too lazy to either take off her socks or put on real shoes.

The other day I saw one of those Neighborhood Watch signs, and it reminded me of when I was a kid and I thought that was actually a picture of the man we were looking for. I didn't know what crime he committed, but it must have been bad because the whole neighborhood was on the lookout for this shadow man with a black trench coat and fedora.
I gotta say, that Neighborhood Watch Villain needs a makeover. He's had the same look for decades! Here are a few suggestions (Warning: My MS Paint skills are amazing).
Add a pink fedora.
Add some bling.
Add some Justin Bieber hair.
Or maybe we should all just admit to ourselves that the Neighborhood Watch Guy is actually Homestar Runner. Notice how they're never in the same place at the same time?
