Writer's Block & Lady Gaga Tickets!  
What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Are you going to wear coordinating costumes with a friend or partner? Did you buy something pre-fab or make it yourself?

As a girl who went to a Catholic primary school and secondary school it was always drummed into us that Halloween is evil and that as good Catholic children we would never dress up as evilness. So because of this I never did anything for Halloween and tbh it never bothered me that much. Plus I was always told it was too American lol. This year is going to be my first Halloween party and I'm not going as anything scary; I'm going as Robin Hood. It's more of a fancy dress than a scary thing.

Any ideas on how I can scarify my costume?

In other news I got Lady Gaga tickets today for her visit to the O2 next February :) I woke up at 9 this morning to be first in the queue but they sold out ages ago because the bastards give priority of O2 customers...grrr. But because I kept refreshing my page, I got dibs when they opened a new date for the day after!

CANNOT WAIT!

i saw this on the answers for writers block.
i go to a catholic school too but they totally encourage us to dress up! in fact today we're doing an event for the community at my catholic high school and all the volunteers have to dress up in the halloween spirit :)
wooo.

Wow really? That's so cool! We weren't allowed to celebrate it...grr! The school I'm at now doesn't mind lol.
Are you American, do you mind me asking? It's just it's an American tradition so maybe that's why you're allowed to do it!
But still cool! xxx

Lol I don't mind, I was just brought up a way in which it's not so big! None of my friends do much for it either!
I'm English and even though, over here people do go trick or treating and such it's not so big here. I think it's bigger your side of the Atlantic :)
Yeah I don't mind celebrating it! I went to a Halloween party this year, but it was more an excuse to get drunk aha! x

i really love english people... and australians :)
there is a new english teacher at my school and he has an english and australian accent.
i pass by his class on purpose just to hear his lovely voice! haha random i'm sorry
i know that has nothing to do with halloween.
ahw! thats usually how parties work for people my age now... getting drunk!

I'm American, and my church and pastor were awesome when my kids were little. He encouraged kids to come in costume to an early afternoon Mass. You could wear anything, but if you came dressed as a saint, you could come up to the front, give a three or four sentence explanation of who your saint was, then receive a little prize. Most years my kids would do a saint, hurry home for a quick supper, then change into other costumes and go trick or treat.
His sermon always talked about the origin of Halloween as a way to scare off/appease the spirits of the dead, and now it's "All Souls Day", when we pray for them.

Hiya! Yeah I totally think that's cool! It's just as a child we were just told we shouldn't dress up to "celebrate" evil spirits! Plus if your American, I think it's more of an American tradition so nobody over here does much on Halloween anyway. xxx
