We're throwing a Halloween party. It's our third one and I'm pleased Halloween is finally landing on a weekend.
Because I'm excited, and because I haven't had much to do at work lately, and because the last episode of The Hills was boring and I don't have much to say about it on Hollywood Sucker, I've spent the day planning for the party.
After sending out the invitations (not using evite...I can't stand evite any more) and ordering decorations (streamers! and paper bats!), I decided to make a playlist.
Obviously I don't have my itunes library here with me at work, so I figured I would think of some new songs I can download.
It took me all of 20 seconds to realize I couldn't name one new song ---and certainly nothing anyone would want to hear at a party. I don't have much of a drive to work in the mornings, so I don't really listen to the radio in my car. And I don't get out much, so I'm not really around DJs at clubs.
So I found myself on MTV.com, watching 25 music videos I'd never seen --mostly by artists I'd never heard of --jotting down songs I liked.
I don't have a point to this story, other than to remark on how old and out of touch that made me feel.
And while I'm (sort of) on the topic of my Halloween party --can anyone tell me what to be for Halloween? I have no ideas.
My top 3 options so far:
1. A martini (but I was a margarita last year and I don't want to be stuck in a rut)
2. A fairy (but there isn't anything funny or clever about this...I just like wings...)
3. A sweatsuit
