Mean Girls: "Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it"

No matter how you define it, Halloween is a holiday when children are adorable and adults look ridiculous. It spans a whole weekend and then some. Some girls dress sexy, and some just wear the costume their mom made them when they were 7 (see the black widow below). Happy Halloween weekend friends.

My friends are in this great band called Gossip Ghoul. They play only Halloween inspired music. Nothin' better than that.

This is when I busted out the old black widow costume. Fits like a glove, 15 years later.
