Well, Hallowe'en is once again safely ensconced in my bedroom closet.
Last year, we didn't take down our indoor decorations till about June. Not only did they get a little distressed throughout the year, but it just wasn't as special when we dug them out on October 1st. I kind of don't want to put up our old and semi-valuable paper decorations, they seem to wilt a little more each year.
I guess I'll have to decorate for xmas now. And perhaps I'll brew something up for Creepmas. Tis the season after all. The season of The Wild Hunt that is.

Usually, I invest in a range of full-sized candy bars, to entice and reward the Trick or Treaters. But, let's face it, the quality of popular Halloween candies has gone downhill in recent years, along with everything else.
I've noticed that Reese's cups keep getting dinkier, and everything is full of high-fructose corn syrup, and because it's not organic you just know it's genetically modified corn.
So, next year, I think I'm going to hand out gmo-free candy. Equal Exchange chocolates and full-sized chocolate Oskri bars.
Occupy Monsanto posted this handy guide to gmo-laden and gmo-free candy bars. And if you live in California, consider voting for prop 37?
