What a fun month of October and Halloween it has been! My two favorite posts were 1) "Scrooge in Hell" about the 1970 musical Scrooge with Albert Finney and 2) the appearances of the Boogeyman in Christmas entertainments. This weekend begins the Christmas programming on television. What are you looking forward to watching in November?
This past weekend was a flurry of Halloween parties--what was your costume this year? I was Loretta Castorini (Cher) from the 1988 movie Moonstruck and my boyfriend was Ronnie Cammereri (Nic Cage). I was shocked to discover just how many people haven't seen that movie! Cultural illiteracy runs amok in America. Oh well. We had fun and it gave me an excuse to drink champagne with sugar cubes all night long. Happy Halloween!
