Sometimes I Think I'm the Smartest Person Ever

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

While reading Bram Stoker's Dracula I was surprised when I read, and thus re-remembered what I had forgotten- that Dracula feared garlic. Seems pretty silly for an un-dead blood sucker with razor-sharp teeth, and super-human strenght, the ability to turn into a bat and walk through walls to be afraid of a common cooking ingredient.

But I progress....The logical benefit of such information is to eat a LOT of garlic on Halloween night. Like a lot. Preferably raw. Then whenever a vampire trick-or-treater comes to your door, you can breathe in his face, naturally warding him off, saving yourself a mini candy bar or roll of Smarties for your troubles. "Hhhhhappy Hhhhhhalloween!!" oughta work nicely to convey your breath.

Or maybe you can use your newly aquired garlic infused respiratory artillery to scatter those Goth kids loitering outside of your local coffee shop.

That's how I roll.

It's October and you Know What That Means

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter least I hope you do. Because I don't.

But I will make two recommendations.

1) Great time to start reading Bram Stoker's Dracula to get ready for Halloween. Great book and much better than I thought it would be- and I'm not a sci-fi kinda guy.

2) Gotta start thinking about Halloween costumes. The great ones never come to you when you are trying to think of them. Luckily for you, this year I wrote down all my favorite ideas throughout the year. Here's what I have so far:

Haloween costumes

Bernie Madoff- in that quilt coat and Penn(?) hat
Billy Idol
Sarah Palin
Dudes going as Rachel Maddow
Katy Perry
John Edwards and Rielle Hunter
The Obama girls
ike and tina
peg and al bundy- (All could wear his "No Ma'am" shirt)
yacht owner(s), or at least cheesey boat owners

That's how I roll.
