Last night I passed out candy to trick-or-treaters up in Salem. Salem, MA is pretty much Halloween Town, USA so it's always way more fun do be up there than anywhere else. Seeing what everyone dresses up as is my favorite part of this holiday. I've noticed that there have been a lot of Wednesday Addams costumes around the internet in the last week or two and I have always loved that character. As a kid, I usually dressed up as a witch every year but once in a while I'd do something else. One year I decided at the last minute to wear normal clothes. I went door-to-door in my neighborhood with my dad and my sister where everyone asked what I was. I replied with a straight face, "I'm a homicidal maniac. They look like everyone else. " I loved Wednesday Addams so much that I didn't dress in black with the braids but I became her and stole her Halloween costume idea and delivered her line to the slightly concerned faces of my neighbors. Ha ha ha!
On a non-Halloween note, this is an old TED talk from 2006 but it's about blogging so I thought I'd share for those of you who are also bloggers. :)
