I am a big fan of checklists. I love making lists of things I need to do, it’s almost a compulsion for me. I like making lists much more than I actually enjoy doing the things on them. For today’s holiday I had a few things that needed to get checked off my list. First, get Roman in his Batman costume. This is not his Halloween costume, he has a different one for tomorrow. I found this snazzy getup for $5 bucks a month or so ago. How could I say no?

Check! Second, get a picture of him with the mask on:

Hmmm….I guess I get a half check on that one. Third, get my Halloween costume ready for work tomorrow. Check! I’ll save the pictures of that for tomorrow. I still have a few things left on my list that I haven’t done yet. One is finishing my laundry. Boooooo. I have a feeling that one will wait to be checked off for a few more days. Hey, it’s about making the list not actually doing everything on it. Mission accomplished!

What lies deep in the darkest corners of your refrigerator? Today is the day to find out. It’s Haunted Refrigerator Night!!! (Insert screams of horror) I bravely searched through our icebox and found some scary sights:

OOOOOHHHH, it does look spooky in black and white, doesn’t it? The most offensive item was the leftover egg drop soup from Egg Day….ewwww:

I think I may have nightmares about that one tonight. Here is the rest of the yucky stuff that made its way to the trash tonight:

It doesn’t look too bad from the picture, but believe me everything was long past its consumption date. I didn’t find anything furry today, so that’s always a plus.

Candy corn is not one of my Halloween favorites. I’ll eat it if it is presented to me, but it’s not something I will buy for myself. I did buy some to celebrate the holiday today though. After picking up some traditional candy corn I came to discover that there are other variations:

I didn’t even know there were other flavors. This goes to show that I am usually not seeking this out. Are they trying to make this candy more desirable? I’m up for the taste test. I tried all three today and gave them all an equal shot. It turns out I like the regular kind the best (that’s still not saying much):

Rich liked the caramel candy corn. Neither of us cared for the caramel apple flavor, it tasted strange. Now that I have a massive amount of candy corn left over I’m going to have to think of something fun to do with it. Any ideas? Can I melt it down and make some better tasting candy???

P.S. – I’ll take regular corn over candy corn any day of the week.
