    Love your list! I’d love to see that duck costume. I know I spend way too much making my costume every year (I probably spent a good $100 at least), but I figure it’s the only real holiday I get to dress up however I feel – and not get strange looks, that is.

    Thanks for the comment! There’s a group of us over at the NaBlo site called 30 Days of Thanks, if you want to join in!

    I’ve read Dracula. It’s really not that scary. I had to read it for my class in college called Victoria’s Secrets.

    Dracula is possibly the least scary movie of all time. He lurks around for an hour, and then gets killed off screen. It is possibly the most disappointing ending of any movie ever, which is why I don’t feel that I’m spoiling anything by telling you. I must save the others from this boredom.
