The people who work the graveyard shift at Wal-Mart are a source of endless amusement for me. Its not that I set out to confuse them, but they insist on looking into my cart while I'm shopping. I can't help it if I find most things in a large department store entertaining. Last night I ended up halloween shopping in addition to buying OTC pain killers (random bits and pieces are hurting) and I finally bought a colander.
Why is it that the only holiday I can easily shop and decorate for is Halloween? Last year, my Halloween decorations stayed up until sometime past New Years. Although I did have the Christmas Jack O Lantern and Thanksgiving Skeleton. Come to think of it, I still have a few things up from Halloween.... I do have Christmas lights though. I should probably just put them up now and have my end of year multi-holiday decorations up.
This year I was quite pleased to find purple Jack O Lantern pails, a decent looking stuffed crow, a 55 gallon drum of Smarties, and some assorted amusing things, all for less than $15.
Now I just need to take a few skeletons out of my closet (and yes, after almost 2 years in my house, I still find it amusing to store actual skeletons in my hall closet ;), Put up some fake cobwebs without disturbing the real ones, put up the Christmas lights and build some halloween decorations that I've been thinking about (I'll ramble about those some other time).
