Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.

Is Halloween the devil's birthday?

I never would have imagined that some of the kids at my church would think that Halloween is the devil's birthday. They go to a church where the sermons taught are not topical in anyway, but verse by verse, chapter by chapter Bible studies. The reason they think this is because of screwed up beliefs that their parents have from their parents' screwed up upbringings.
Halloween is NOT the devil's birthday. Satan, also called the Devil, was a created being. He was not born, like we are. He was made by God as all other angels are made. There is no human time or day that we celebrate his creation, and thinking so is just...silly. Halloween was originally a Gaelic festival celebrating the end of summer. They believed that since that night was the end of summer and the beginning of winter, the spirit world and the physical world no longer had anything separating them from each other. They dressed up in frightening costumes so that they would look like a harmful spirit and therefore avoid harm.
This is a pagan belief, yes, but after being mixed with Catholicism, Christianity, and other various myths and legends, it's turned into nothing but a night for kids to dress up in costumes and get free candy, for teenagers to sit at home and scare themselves witless in front of horror movies, and for adults to have rather questionable Halloween parties. It's not the devil's birthday. That's just silly.

Being 17

Yesterday was my birthday. My Monsieur took me out for the day so I was much too busy to blog about it, but now I'm back at work and have not much to do. :)
He took me to an absolutely wonderful Mexican restaurant called Abuelo's and it was delicious. We ordered off the lunch menu, partly because we could and partly because it had the least expensive stuff on the menu. ^_^ My Monsieur got a pepper stuffed with cheese and topped with queso and these delicious beans on the side, and these cheese potato things. I got two tosdadas, one chicken the other beef. My Monsieur was a little unsure about my choice of restaurant, I could tell, but he enjoyed himself and his food was sooo good. It was better than what I ordered. :D
This is the gift he gave me:
I'm wearing it right now. ^_^
Thank you my sweet Monsieur, for such a wonderful birthday.

52 Degrees

The weather around here is being quite agreeable right now. I'm very pleased with it. I hope it keeps this up for my birthday.

Scrumptious isn't it? I think I love this. And of course, you can check out her other work here.

"Another hideous black nail polish."

Oh, I beg to differ. Black nail polish, in my book, is the essential nail polish. It goes with everything, it looks incredibly elegant when applied right, you can use it to paint those tiny details on that ugly barrette you want to re-do, and although modern pop-culture has tried and unfortunately succeeded in making black nail polish popular every other week or so, it's still a definite Goth staple. A Goth staple to the forehead. :)

And speaking of black nail polish, don't you just love this bottle?? I saw it last week, and I couldn't help myself. I bought it. Oh, Halloween, you suck the life from my bank account.

I'm going home soon.

I don't know when the Rapture will happen, or how soon or how far off it is from today. I just know that I'm going home very soon. It's never been this close. Ever.

Interesting article if you're into that kind of thing.

Do something good for someone today. You don't know how long you have left here.

1 Year Anniversary

Today is the 1 year anniversary of my blog. ^_^ And this is the 100th post. Yeah, I planned it. :)

I've had tons of fun with this thing. It's nice to think that although this blog started out with no direction, no plan, and not really being anything of importance, it still hasn't changed. Thanks for sticking with me.

An American Werewolf in Paris

I really enjoyed this movie. I watch a great amount of very stupid horror movies, since my dad seems to actually enjoy them. I'm not sure why. But my mom had something to do with this movie choice, and I actually sat and watched this whole movie. It was pretty gory, since the werewolves only ate the hearts of their victims, but they enjoyed tearing their body parts off. Their victims turned into these undead zombie people that were only visible to the werewolves. They'd only die when the werewolf who killed them was killed. The werewolf graphics were obviously below the level that they are now, but they did a pretty good job for a 90s film. And the undead people were, in my opinion, excellent. Especially when that one girl's eye popped out. I thought that was hilarious... The suspense is wonderful. You don't know who they're going to kill next, and it gets even worse when you realize the movie makers didn't list the American's friend[s] in the 'Do Not Kill' list. Like I said, I really enjoyed this film, and I think if you're spending the night in and you have Netflix, you should most definitely look this movie up.


I got my delicious jewelry-making goodies in the mail yesterday. This makes me very happy.

And I got presents from my sweet Monsieur this morning. ^_^ He bought me an adorable little rubber bat, and for 99 cents it's very good quality. It's a really strong little bat that looks like it can put up with being toted around and played with. He bought me a spiderweb tablecloth as well, to use on my birthday. ^_^ What amuses me greatly is the fact that the package says "Vinyl Tablecoth". I guess when you're selling your products to large chain stores like Walgreens spell check isn't that important, right?

Oh, October.

How I love thee. You warm my heart with your chilling breeze, your decaying leaves, and your sweet breath that brings a mysterious feeling to the air.

Yeah. I love October. I turn 17 on the 13th. I'm very excited. Much more excited than I thought I would be.

I love everything about October, really. Except...one thing. Only one. And it's one that burns my heart with a furious, fiery passion. That one things is this:

My budget can't keep up with all those spooky goodies!!

Why can't the stores keep their Halloween treats out all year?? It would be a lot nicer to me. I wouldn't be trying to buy up everything I see now because "October will be over soon!" My goodness.
