Monday Earworm: Broken Peach

This whole weekend Danny Elfman’s song “This Is Halloween” from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas has been going through my head, and when I searched for a video of it, I discovered this little gem. It’s freaky.

June Rêveuse

Summertime, and the living is…all about editing.  Yup, it’s DEADLINE WEEK!  Again!  It seems like I have a lot of those…

 

Anyway, Happy RRFP Day.  (Not sure what that is?  Click here.)

 

It’s summer, so I’m pretty much in a ponytail, no make-up, and extremely casual clothes every day.  Today was a white t-shirt, a black skirt, black sandals, and these goofy red tassel earrings that have probably seen their last Rêveuse Day.  But I need caffeine to meet my deadline, so I’ve also got my new Jack Skellington mug!

And why would you need a new one? you might be asking. Your old one was perfectly awesome in every way.

 

A fair question, and yes, you are correct.  But sadly, my old Jack Skellington mug met an untimely end when my Dear Husband was sweeping the floor in the kitchen and accidentally knocked it off the shelf.  (Don’t get me wrong — I love and appreciate that he was sweeping the floor.)

 

I scoured the Interwebz trying to find a replacement, but alas, that mug is no longer available anywhere.  So I got this one instead.  Not the same shape, but also very cool, and it has gray and black stripes on the inside, which is nice.  The best part, though?  This mug is approximately the size of my face!  It holds a wakeful 21 ounces!  That’s a delightful lot of chai tea, my friends.  So I’m going with it.
And as an extra little bonus for you Night Circus fans, I wanted to share this with you, which I recently came across via Erin Morgenstern’s Twitter feed.  (It’s a deleted scene from the book.  You are welcome.)

Until tomorrow…

Happy Hallowe’en!

So celebrating Hallowe’en, in my house, takes several days.  And while I could have spent a lot of this weekend finishing up my blog post about traditions and rituals, I elected instead to spend that time participating in the holiday festivities with my family.  More substantive prose will be coming along soon, but to tide you over until then, please enjoy this really entertaining video my friend Emily sent me.  (Thanks, Em!)

Happy Hallowe’en, everyone.  Stay safe and don’t get a tummy ache from too much candy!
