Happy Halloween!

I will explain the picture at the end....
I cannot believe that I am sick with the stinkin' flu on my favorite holiday. I forced myself to go to work after 2 days off, and got a flu shot WHILE I had the flu. Was I not supposed to do that? Oops.
Honestly. I always get sick around this time of year, only usually it happens around Thanksgiving. Jason is as healthy as an Ox, like always. *sigh* So we are having a super fun night of sleeping and watching TV at my parents house, helping hand out candy. I admit, I am kind of a nerd, because I have ALWAYS wanted to hand out candy, and this year I finally can! (given we have any trick-or-treaters)
So this is CRAZY. I hear in Chicago now, they have officially renamed Halloween as "Orange and Black Day." What the heck? And I guess are now thinking about renaming Christmas, "Winterfest." No jokes, folks. This is the real deal. I heard it myself. Now THAT'S scary.

Know what else is freaky? The Halloween Crab I posted a picture of.
  • Halloween Crab:"A very common land crab in the coastal lowland tropical rain forests of Costa Rica is the Halloween Crab (Gecarcinus quadratus). Halloween Crabs have several common names and are also known as Mouthless Crabs or Harlequin Land Crabs."

Now that makes me more nauseous than I already am.....Happy Orange and Black Day Everyone!
