Last night my boyfriend had the fun idea to have a Hallow-weiner roast! So, we got out to purchase our supplies and headed over to my sister’s house to start a fire. It took a while, but we finally got it going after our magical fire dance:
I thought it would be fun to tell spook stories around the fire, but no one really had any other than sleep paralysis experiences (which are scary enough, by the way).
Anyway.. We roasted our weiners, I heated up some vegetarian baked beans, and we had a nice little Hallow-weiner meal:
Halloweiners, dried bat wings, snot-slime salsa, and banshee baked beans! haha.
After dinner, we made spooky s’mores! I would have very much liked to cut the graham crackers into spooky shapes, but this was sort of a last-minute decision. I’ve heard that it’s easiest to cut graham crackers into shapes after they’ve been microwaved for about 45 seconds.
Last but not least, we threw some magic powder onto the fire to create pretty colors!
And then my boyfriend did this because he’s cool:
And that was our Hallow-weiner roast adventure!
I saw Paranormal Activity by myself yesterday, and I had a horrible time trying to fall asleep last night. I mean, obviously the movie isn’t real. But just imagine if those things that happened in the movie really did happen. Yeesh. I couldn’t help but feel like there was some invisible demon standing next to my bed all night.
Tonight we’re going to the Rocky Horror Masquerade Ball at the Alabama Theatre, and tomorrow we’re carving pumpkins. On Halloween, we’ll be attending a cemetery tour in Birmingham, and will be going to the Alabama Theatre twice more for their Halloween children’s matinee and for the 1925 version of Phantom of the Opera with live organ accompaniment (which we’ve attended every year since 2004). Should be fun!
I hope everyone has a wonderful, Halloween-filled weekend!
