Apologies for the late blog entry but I was out tonight with the lovely and talented Roger Cross who is in Toronto shooting a t.v. series, between his various other t.v. show appearances. Despite his busy schedule, he still found the time to take Akemi and I out for dinner. A class act. Hopefully, before he heads back to Vancouver, he has time to swing by our place and put a dent in the 70 or so collected bottles that survived the Dark Matter Whiskey Club.
On our way back home, I noticed Halloween parties were in full swing. It has been, admittedly, a while since the last time I dressed up, but I will always have fond memories of those early outfits. They included: Captain Kirk, Han Solo, and Wolverine. Really, the cool character trifecta. What more is there to add?
One of the things I miss about living in an apartment rather than a house is the opportunity to hand out treats to costumed kids. Not that I have any great affection for children. Just the opposite. Back in Vancouver, I used to answer the door with a platter of raw vegetables and canned fish. I remember it backfiring when one kid’s eyes positively lit up: “I love smoked oysters!” In retrospect, I should have gone with hard cheeses.
So, with Halloween just around the corner, what are YOU dressing up as? Harley Quinn? Brite Bomber from Fortnite? Michael AvenattiM?
Matinees I want to check out this week that I probably won’t have time to go see so why am I doing this to myself?: Burning, Venom, Halloween, Bad Times at the El Royale, Suspiria, A Simple Favor.
