Live like We’re Dying

“Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it” – a classic Cady Heron line, I know. But with its proximity to the first days of November, which means Undas, and the recent natural malevolence going on, I think the recent theme has been death. From Paul the Octopus to Kookie Ramirez to Indonesians to Blake-Penn romance, death is all over!

But seriously, a lot of us don’t even know what Halloween means or how it originated. My stuck knowledge says that people dress up just because the ancient Celts feared that the spirits would mix with the human crowd. So we have to dress up like them to not be given the leer.

Yesterday, kids squeezed in the newsroom for Trick or Treats. How cute they all were!

When I posted these in Twitpic, Jean said that they look pedophillic! Lol. People.

Darth Vader’s mom was like, “Smiiile” when she urged the kid to come pose with me. Again, people.

The hour-long event was thrilling enough for me who didn’t get to TrickorTreat when I was a kid. (Dressing a la United Nations doesn’t count.) So here are shots in the office taken by co-writer Shiela Reyes. Worth the pictoblog cos the hell with me being busy 😦

HAPPY HALLOWEEN anyway guys!

Hi, I'm Barry Viloria, 21 and not a blogger. I occasionally bitch about what's hot, what's not, what's life-threatening and what's Blake Lively wearing but I refuse to be called a "blogger." That's it.

  13. Thank You For This Blog, was added to my bookmarks.

  14. I want your job. Not in a pedophiliacal way. I’ve just never seen a work environment where it seems so many people are having so much fun! I thought all corporate offices were off limits to children due to their alarming rate of internet porn. Who knew. Darth looks like rather than smiling he was wondering if he could convince you that he was your father perhaps he might get more candy.
