If it were I would be in big trouble. Sorry Trick or Treaters, I ate your bag this year. This week has been odd. I am in a weird mood and once again have neglected my duties of delivering the daily brain dump. I don't know exactly what my problem is but it is certainly not being cured with Samuel Adam's Octoberfest Brew. I don't know what is wrong with this beer (it's a little to tangy) but I am going to have to switch back to their Boston Ale.
I think it might have to do with the fact that I am for the first time in many years NOT throwing a Halloween party of some sort. Our good friends Mike and Petra live in San Diego now and my brother-in-law will be in Hawaii during the traditional party weekend. Not that it wouldn't be fun to have a party without them it just wouldn't be the same.
So the solution is a Costume Contest. I have decided to throw the 3rd Annual Shellen Party virtually this year. That's right just 1) Dress up 2) Take a picture and 3) Send it in. This time everyone is invited, known friend or random internet friend. Just send your photos of you and yours in Halloween garb to me. Images will be posted in an image gallery for all to see. Better get cracking, only a couple of weeks left until the Great Pumpkin arrives. Winners will receive an Amazon.com gift certificate. (See it's for high stakes and everything.)
