Long Weekend Madness



If you’re lucky you’re in the middle of a long weekend, which is phenomenal!!!

What will you do with this one wild and precious weekend?

Head over to Unicorns for Socialism & reinvent yourself with a sweet new title & mission statement.   I am inspired to put “justice crusader/ wonder & wisdom curator” on my business cards.   No seriously.

Fall hikes!  Fall Hikes!  Even if it is raining and cold.    If it rains, make like Reinvented in Seattle & jump in puddles. 

Figure out why you hold on to clutter & then get rid of it. 

Make a sweet DIY-dolly lantern.

Take a look at the Extraordinary Catalog of Peculiar Inventions: Vintage Arsenal of Masonic Pranksters (name says it all) 

Seattleites: Learn how to celebrate a local-foods Thanksgiving at the U-District farmer’s market (Saturday 11:00).  When you’re done, indulge in food-blogger baked delights at Will Bake for Food. ( Proceeds to go The Emergency Feeding Project.)

If you can’t get enough philanthropic gluttony, you can check out the annual Goodwill Glitter Sale: 

Held every year since 1983, this famous two-day sale features racks, rows and cases of glitzy and glamorous formalwear, gowns, jewelry, handbags, shoes and more, at fantastic prices! It has become Goodwill’s most popular and well-attended sale—people from across the region and even other states make it a point to attend.

What makes the sale truly remarkable is that all proceeds—every penny our customers spend—go to support Goodwill’s free job training programs. Every day, we help low-income people with barriers to employment get the skills and support they need to find work and support themselves.Because jobs change lives.

What will you do with this rollicking roller-coaster weekend?


Saturday Night Madness…Halloween Edition


Creepy Tree in Fog
I hope you have some delectable plans this Halloween.   Just in case, though,  here are some last-minute ideas.

Check out the world’s creepiest recordings on Listverse, where you can also find such oddball delights as  unusual ways to die throughout the ages, famous elephants and their bizarre deaths, and great zombie depictions.    You could also browse the world’s creepiest wikipedia articles.

Make hot apple cider (rum optional).

Turn off all the lights and watch terrifying movies!  Pair with drinking games.  With jello shots,  which are my all-time favorite Halloween treat, but you can also make some of those fancy, sexy halloween drinks (or disgusting ones.)  Halloween pajamas are encouraged.

Make some feather lanterns to cast an eerie glow across your living room.

Go to a haunted house.  Here are a ton in the Seattle area.

Sign up for your city’s scariest ghost tour.  I’m *dying* (har) to go to Spooked in Seattle  or take the Pike’s Market famed ghost tour.

Check out the Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore (a weird, one room museum filled with slightly creepy stuff–wax heads, UFO stuff, Bruce Lee Memorabilia)

Try to book a last minute weekend at a haunted bed & breakfast. 

Make adorable food:  wicked witch lemon lollipops.

I love this Dia de Los Muertos makeup.  It’s La Catrina.

What are your Halloween plans?
