I apologize for the poor quality of today’s images. Ever the dingbat, I left my camera cord… well, who knows where? I am not a huge fan of Halloween, but I do love The Nightmare Before Christmas and candy, so it can’t be all bad. Last night Alyson and I channeled MJ for the Thriller dance party at Life in Synergy (a great gym in the Back Bay, with a huge range of classes). After going it alone at the Bollywood dance-off, I am very happy to have a partner in crime (…and yes, I was just about to write something about smooth criminals).
Attendees were encouraged to dress in costume. One woman wore all brown, rubbed on some brown face paint and stuck a twig in her ponytail. I think she was a tree. I didn’t have much time this week to pull together a workout-worthy costume, so I threw on my Michael Forever tee-shirt (complete with glittered glove applique), yoga pants, a pair of black legwarmers and sequined ballet shoes. Perfect for spinning, shaking and snapping. If you need entertainment for your next party (especially if your guests happen to be visually impaired), we’d be happy to perform Thriller for you.
Today, Nick and I stopped by the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. What is it about free stuff that brings out the beast in people? Oh, the irony of elbowing and pushing people to get to the animal cruelty prevention pamphlet table! We sampled some unbelievable peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Company and picked up samples of Lara Bars and a few recipes, which I look forward to experimenting with later this week.
We’re off to watch my younger brother’s rugby game. We might not be back in time for the one trick or treater who might appear at our door, so we threw this together to leave at the door:
While I’d like to claim in was an attempt to stave off childhood obesity, mostly I didn’t want to eat all the candy that would inevitably left over, and I sort of wanted to play with Play-Dough. I like how it smells.
I hope you have a safe and happy Halloweenie.
