Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Halloween Hangover Edition

I am not actually hungover from Halloween – I didn’t do much of anything to celebrate the day. I like Halloween a lot – what’s not to like about a holiday that centers around free candy? – but I didn’t have the energy to do much of anything other than pain my nails in a festive way.

I did get a visit from my first trick or treater in over a decade; my baby nephew paid a visit to show off his third Halloween costume. That kid is the Diana Ross of Halloween. I didn’t even watch any scary movies. I did manage to swing by the store early this morning before work to try and stock up on some discounted candy, but sadly the pickings were kind of slim. Christmas candy was already out; there is no time to dwell on the ghosts of holidays past.

So I rely on my co-workers to bring in their kids’ candy, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s roundup.
