Fun parties, trick-or-treating, bobbing for apples and donning costumes.  Halloween is a favorite holiday for many.  Between the celebrations and sugar-fueled giggles, don’t forget…the hallowed are out there, but so are the souls not so lucky to be canonized.

Just for fun I thought I’d share one of the creepiest people reading a poem from one of my favorite authors.  I give you Christopher Walken reading The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe.

Stay Spooky!

Last night I had plans to write a post about some of my recent adventures, but I couldn’t because first of all I had to play tennis with Charlotte.  After that I had to watch The Blacklist (I love On Demand).  Yes, I had to watch it.  Charlotte and I are fighting over who James Spader (or perhaps his character, Raymond Reddington?) loves more, me or her.  I say it’s me, of course.  We used to fight over him when he was on Alan Shore on Boston Legal too.

Raymond Reddington, Alan Shore, it really doesn’t matter. Spader’s got something I want.

After seeing the show I decided to get to work because I’ve got this show coming up and I’ve been dragging my feet getting the loose ends tied up.  The show ~ Ruttger’s Oktoberfest.  I had to review the sheet magnet situation to make sure I had enough to go around.

One of seven in the Walken Series. Sheet magnets are pretty popular at the Auntie B’s Wax booth.

I’ve done this show once before and decided to give it a try again.  The thing is, October is three-quarters over and an outside show this time of year can be chilly, to say the least.  Not only do I have to pack up my wares for the show, I have to dig out my sweaters and thermal skivvies for the trip.  The weather guy says it’s going to be a dry Saturday in Deerwood, MN, but the high will be a brisk forty-two degrees.  Keep in mind Husby and I will be setting up around 6:00 a.m. and it will be a lot colder then.  I think mittens will be on my list of things to bring too.

So the posts on my adventures will have to wait a little longer.  Maybe in the meantime I’ll have some new adventures to write about too!

A little while ago I promised to unveil a product right here on my humble blog.  I wanted to test this new product at a couple of live shows before presenting it here.  I’ve done that and got rave reviews…and some confused faces.

These magnets are pretty hysterical if I may say so.  It’s fine if you don’t think so; I’ve heard comments like “I don’t get it,” and “who’s that?”  I’ve also made a few sales and have generated lots of laughs.  With those mixed reviews I present to you (drumroll)…The Walken Series.

There you have it. Did you pee your pants with laughter? Are you scratching your head going “what the…?”

For anyone interested in owning any of these works of quirky magnetic art they are available only at my live shows and right here on this blog for $5 each, plus $2 shipping. (Shipping varies depending on how many you buy.) And here’s a special blog deal for those of you who can’t live with less than all of them ~ if you buy all seven I’ll give you $10 off! That’s seven bizarre Walken magnets for $25, plus $3 shipping.

To order just go to the Sheet Magnets Page and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.  Be sure to check out all the other fun pulp fiction, sheet music, and words to live by magnets too!

Thanks for bearing with my obession with the weirdness that is Walken, and have a great weekend.

It’s hard to believe I’ve been away from the blog for a whole week.  I didn’t do it on purpose.  Let’s see if I can fill you in on what’s been happening.

1.  Husby and I have been spending a lot of time tending to his dad.  He’s had a rough time of it this past winter, suffering a stroke and a broken hip both within a two-week period.  He had to leave his home and move into a nursing home.  Throughout all of this his existing dementia has gone into further decline.

2.  Visits to the nursing home take a toll, and if that isn’t enough we also paid a visit to the funeral home to make arrangements for his dad, just as a precaution.  Husby is a big believer in being prepared.

3.  Demands of the day job have been pesky, getting in the way of all the things I really want to do.  Sure there’s time after I come home from the day job, but by that time I’m pretty well spent.  I’ve been sitting on half-done printing jobs, cutting jobs, beading jobs, pouring jobs, and writing jobs all week, never quite getting up the energy to complete what I’d like to complete.  The older I get the more that drives me nuts.  Completion is my goal, but the dang day job keeps getting in the way.

4.  In spite of my half-done projects I started a new project this week and guess what, it too is half-done.  But I can hardly wait to unveil it.  For now it’s a secret.  It will make its debut at the Chateau St. Croix Fete Des Fleurs in June, but I’m so excited about it I can hardly breathe.  Oh, all right, I’ll give you a hint ~ this person is my inspiration:

Christopher Walken, all-around insane guy.

No, the project has nothing to do with cowbells.  You’ll just have to wait and see.  I’ll be doing an internet debut too, so if you can’t make it to the Fete Des Fleurs fear not.  You won’t be kept in the dark much longer than those who will see it live and in person.

This weekend I’m going to gather up my gumption again.  There will be lots of completion of projects, a little bit of hanging out with the family for a casual spring break gathering, and catching up on the sleep I lost this past week.

For now, how about just a little more of that Christopher Walken insanity…
