Let that one sink in for a while.

I guess I'm old now...

Okay, it's October 27th, and I haven't done one damn thing for Halloween! Not one horror movie watched. Costume hasn't even been started. Normally, my costume is at least sketched out by August. This year is an easy costume, a bit boring, but it's a great ensemble piece with Nick. So it'll be cool. But, due to low spending funds, I haven't been able to get anything for it. The reason for the low funds is because of bills and such. You know how it is. I'm not even in the "holiday" spirit. I guess I'm all grown up now. Oh well. Happy Halloween (I suppose).
