Halloween boo-ya! (I don't know what that means)

halloween05 011.jpg Can you guess who we are? Actually, upon second glance..I can answer for you..No..so I'll just tell you...We look better in full body costume, but I'm done making excuses. We're Gomez and Morticia Addams and that's Thing on his shoulder, but Thing has a cold, so he's wearing a glove!

I've had this one question running through my head since about five minutes before I went to sleep last night. If I stepped on a sharp piece of wood that happened to be sticking up from my floor, and that little tiny sharp piece of wood happened to make it into my foot, and it happened to implant itself in a place in my foot that is not easily reached by the person whose body happens to be attached to that place, but I'm not even sure if there's a piece of wood in the foot, should I be concerned about the possibility of the wood going into my body?

Okay, now that I've got the question out of the way. Happy Halloween! There was a great op ed piece in this weekends NY Times (I always feel a bit heavier in the brain after reading the Sunday NY Times) about how Halloween is really a holiday for adults and not children. And it's so true. Children hate getting dressed up in costume, they're allowed to be imaginative all year long. They like getting candy though. The adults I know that dress up in costume they love it, because costumes help us create personas!

I like Halloween because it's the time of year when the veil between the two worlds (the living and the dead) is at it's thinnest. Now, how cool is that?

And another question that I'd love a response on:

Are career minded, successful, beautiful, powerful women less attractive than their less successful or less driven counterparts? I'm talking in terms of marriage material. I'm writing a piece on an excerpted piece I read from Maureen Dowd's soon to be released new book (it sound fucking amazing) and she believes that yes, it's true - successful women have a harder time finding Mr. Right.

Is it true?

Help a wounded splinter filled writer out and email me: hottwax@gmail.com. And have a safe and Happy Halloween.
