It's definitely time

The leaves are falling, the air is getting crisp, the children can't sit's time for their dentist appointments! Oh, no,'s almost time for Halloween.

First of all, I'd really like to give thanks to AMC who sees fit every year to play horror movies for two weeks. Seriously, the rest of the TV stations need to step up, grow a pair, and play me some damned horror movies! And, Syfy, "Giant Banana Slug vs. Giant Dung Beetle" does not count as a horror movie. Hell, it barely counts as a movie! Oh, and get that horrid "Ghost Hunters" and "Destination Truth" bullshit off the air. Seriously? That's horrible, not horror. Unless the banana sluck wears a mask and wields a knife...then it's just hilarious.

No, I'm talking about the originals--"A Nightmare on Elm Street", "Friday the 13th" and, possibly my all-time favorite, "Halloween". Though I haven't actually seen "A Nightmare on Elm Street" on TV in a long time.

So, yeah, AMC. Not only have they been playing nonstop horror movies, but they've been including commentary from directors and actors called "Killer Conversations". My favorite segment was banter between Kane Hodder (the guy who played Jason Voorhees) and Tony Moran (the guy who played Michael Meyers). They were like little kids, giddy about the movies and comparing their "favorite kills". Also, they have these two guys recreating classic horror movies in their garage. Hilarious.

Good times.

Also, we made our annual pilgrimage to the pumpkin patch. Much fun was had by all. What cracked me up is the amount of attention the girls gave to a black cat roaming the grounds. Like we don't have two of those already! Though, to be fair, ours are losers. And everyone loves a winner! Below I've included pics that I shamelessly yoinked from K's blog post.
