It's that time of year again. Shocktoberfest. For those of you newer to this blog, you may not be aware that my husband decided three years ago to subject me to a horror movie every night for the thirty days leading up to Halloween. Thirty days and not thirty-one you might ask? My birthday is October 1 and I demanded to have that night off from being scared. I don't even want to explain why or how this happened, it just did. And now, it's a tradition that I can't get out of (except when I manage to plan social events on a few evenings here and there which are always viewed with suspicion by John). This 'tradition' has even spread to some of our friends and family. Insanity. So how does a girl keep her sanity? I drink and I eat candy and I complain- a lot. I also have immersed myself in a fabulous book about Liz Taylor and Richard Burton and their tempestuous love affairs and marriages. It's a wonderful distraction during this difficult time.
It hasn't been all bad though. Some films I've really enjoyed like William Castle's 'Strait-Jacket' starring Joan Crawford, and an Australian film called The Reef which involves a great white shark and is unfortunately sort of based on a true story. I ate my weight in candy that night. I also had to watch a Norwegian film called 'Troll Hunter' which is exactly what it sounds like- trolls +hunting= nonsense.
Fortunately it will all be over in a week, and then I can concentrate on getting my figure back and finding a good marriage counselor.
