Playlist for Sunday, October 30: Square piece. Round hole.

Halloween and Broadway. Like candy corn and over-priced wine. A natural fit, right? Well, seeing how I dislike Phantom of the Opera (the musical kind) and Cats (the musical kind), I have to MAKE that fit happen. Mel Brooks, Nathan Lane, and Audrey II are ghoulish enough, right? A little spooky instrumentation and it's scary, right? This isn't Scooby Doo, okay?

And it's freezing! Do I really have to wear gloves and ear muffs to mow my lawn one last time? I came back from (arid, hot, sandaled) Austin, and the leaves had changed, the temps had plummeted, and all hell had broken loose. Well, not really. But I MISS the mild crunch of fall, or at least a milder introduction to FROST!  I have 17 beautiful fall blazers and there are usually about 4 days when I can wear them here in upstate NY. Well, not THIS fall.  THIS fall my fashion is out the window, while I reach for a frickin' parka. And I absolutely refuse to wear my new cowboy boots in the snow. Do you hear me???

So...missing. And trying to fit the puzzle pieces together for a new season and a new saga. Audra can help, so can Emma. And if we poke Fester, he'll sing a lovely poem to the moon. Let's try not to be too scared.
