I don’t know how it happened, but Halloween is only a few days away! And already my newsfeed has been flooded with pictures of Halloween parties and girls showing off their, more or less, “creative” costumes from this past weekend. Now let me be the first to admit to having a few ratchet years of Halloween getups myself. For instance, my first year of college I was a keg. Yep, a keg! Me and my friends qualified a good keg ensemble as wrapping ourselves up in duck-tape and writing keg across our chest, just in case people didn’t get it. I mean, I’m just happy there are no existing pictures from that unfortunate night. Since I have been that girl, I think I have the right to comment on my current feelings about this holiday.
Growing up, and even through high school, Halloween was my favorite holiday out of the year. First, I’m obsessed with scary movies, and the majority of Halloween movies I consider to be classics. Who can disagree that Hocus Pocus never gets old? There is also the, Nightmare Before Christmas, The Addams Family, Casper, Beetlejuice, and the Disney Channel’s Halloweentown (the original of course). Then, being able to dress up and be whoever or whatever you wanted was the best part, for me at least. My most memorable costume was when I was the pink power ranger. I had the whole outfit from head to toe. My gloves even came equipped with sound effects, which I had worn out by the end of the night. Finally, the guarantee of a having a full bag of free candy by the end of the night, which would last for weeks after, is awesome. I wish I could still go trick-or-treating without it being completely inappropriate and creepy.
As you get older Halloween begins to have a different purpose besides getting free candy and dressing up. Eventually, all you can really expect from this holiday, as you reach a certain age, is binge drinking and sexy (fill in the blank) costumes. Apparently, anything can be morphed into a sexy costume, such as sexy raccoon or sexy cab driver. In what world have you ever met a sexy cabbie? Let's not forget about all the picture poses that girls practice to match their outfits.
It’s ridiculous, but I get it. The movie Mean Girls explained it the best, “Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.” All girls like to be able to show off their stuff, and on this day you don’t have to feel self-conscious, since everyone will be running around half naked in public anyway. I just wish girls would use a little more imagination or creativity because there are only so many sexy bubble bees I will tolerate in one night.
I guess, I am officially a grandma, because I have lost all enjoyment when it comes to going out for Halloween. I don’t think it’s that much fun to be at a dirty bar barley wearing anything. If you’re not in the bar you’re waiting in line freezing your little tush off for way too long. Once you do get in you realize the cover charge is double what it is normally only to drink at the same place you go every other weekend for free. Typically, one of your girlfriends either ends up crying, belligerent, or arguing with their boyfriend all night. After spending two paychecks on your costume, and then dishing out even more money on drinks so you can tolerate the rest of the night, it all becomes a little overrated. That’s just me though.

Okay, so I have found my spirit animal and his name is Matt Bellassai. You can find him on Facebook to enjoy his hilariously honest weekly videos.
Basically, what this guy gets to do is get drunk at work and just complain about whatever topic he chooses to rant about. I love it! First, where do I apply to get this job. I think I have enough experience in this area to be considered an expert, for sure.
Anywho, Matt Bellassai is hilarious and definitely worth the follow.

Today is October 3, National Mean Girls Day!!!
"On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.
It's October 3rd."
Mean Girls has become a popular cult classic with way too many quotable moments. Tina Fay's rendition of high schools hierarchy is genius, perfectly capturing every teenage girls idea of the drama they deal with on the daily. It's a movie you can watch a hundred times never losing it's charm. In honor of Mean Girls Day here's a list of some of the greatest movie quotes we are still reciting today.
Karen: "I can't go out, *cough* I'm sick."
Regina: "Boo, you whore."
This is my number one favorite Mean Girls quote. Anytime someone says something I don't like, my automatic response is, "boo you whore." I mean really though best quote in the movie.
"That's so Fetch"
Really, Regina George? Looks like she actually did make it happen, so face!
"On Wednesdays we wear pink"
The rules for sitting with the plastics at lunch is so priceless. Besides having to wear pink on hump day; "You can't wear a tank top two days in a row, and you can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week. Oh, and we only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays."
Now, if you break any of these rules,
you can't sit with us at lunch."
Which brings me to the next all time favorite quote;
"YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US!"
"Grool! I meant to say cool then I started to say great. "
HAHA! When dubbed hottie Aaron Samuels invites Lindsey, aka Cady, to his Halloween party her response is amazing because we have all been there.
"I'm kind of psychic. I have a fifth sense."
It's like she has ESPN or something, haha!
Regina: "You're like really pretty"
Cady: "Thank you"
Regina: "So you agree? You think you're really pretty?"
"Candy Cane Grams! Four for you Glen Coco! You go Glen Coco!"
Karen: "So if you're from Africa why are you white?"
Gretchen: "Oh, my God, Karen you can't just ask people why they're white."
"The limit does not exist"
Damian: "She doesn't even go here!"
Ms. Norbury: "Do you even go here?"
There are so many more, but I don't want to recite the whole movie for you guys. Instead you should go watch it on Netflix now, which is exactly what I'm about to go do.
