A very little know fact about me is that I enjoy horror and thriller films. A very well known fact about me is that I’m a complete paranoid scardy cat. Do you see how those two facts don’t mix?
Yes, deep down I really do enjoy horror and thriller films, but I don’t usually get to enjoy them because I’m so easily scared that the nightmare follow me for weeks. Even when I’m home with my boyfriend I still worry about seeing shadows that look too human-like, or boogeymen in my closet. Read More »
This year I had Halloween-y plans for every single weekend of the month, but every single idea I had fell through. How is that even possible? From fresh tattoos to bad weather, something always came up. Despite the setbacks I managed to get some Halloween fun in this year.
Week 1 – I visited the massive Spirit Halloween in an abandoned shopping center in San Marcos, Texas. Spirit Halloween is a chain of Halloween stores that pop up only during the month of October. My boyfriend had never been to one so we made the trip down to SM (there’s one in Austin, too, but it’s cramped and when we went this one little hipster dude followed us through the whole store).

The day has finally come! I own all of the Spider-Man movies!
As you may know by now I’m a bit of a nut for superheroes, Spider-Man and Batman being my top two. Over the past year and a half on Loitering Lion I’ve expressed my love for Spider-Man in many ways, from freaking out about seeing the latest installment of the film series in IMAX to getting a heart-shaped Spider-Man tattooed to my wrist. After all of the hoopla it’s only appropriate that I own all of the films (as well as every piece of Spider-Man merch known to the human race). I owe my sister, Mimi, a huge THANK YOU since she is the one who gave me all of these!

After a month drenched in orange, purple, green, and black I finally made it back to Halloween weekend. Last year I dressed up like a zombie and decided to have a life so I decided to keep up the tradition. This year was a blast! It all started on Thursday, October 30th.
Thursday, October 30
The day before Halloween ended up being dedicated to finishing up my preparations for the big day. My roommate, Teri, and I went to the outlet malls in our town to A) finish putting together her costume and B) treat my self to some shopping after a month of hard work getting my finances sorted out. I bought a few really awesome things, but I think the only Halloween thing I bought were the orange Halloween Oreos. My personal favorite! Shopping was a ton of fun and when we got back to our apartment I immediately had to start packing for my trip to Austin. This year I wanted to spend Halloween with my sister, Mimi, and was catching a ride with a good friend of mine. Nahomy and her boyfriend picked me up around 8PM and we got to catch up a bit over dinner. It was really nice to see her again and to finally meet her boyfriend of eleven months. I made it home around 10PM and got to cuddle with my cats. I freaking love cats!
