The freaks come out night, the freaks come out ni-ight...

That song always makes me think of Halloween and, as a result, I always end up singing the refrain over and over again on Halloween night. It just works perfect, at least for me I'm not sure why, other than the fact that Whodini rules and, well, the song is catchy as hell.

Even though it's Tuesday, I'm still catching up on work and recharging my batteries after one of the most ridiculous and completely awesome weekends I've had in quite some time. However, I didn't want to let Halloween pass without at least passing along a very generic "Happy Halloween" to everyone. Even though I'm still a little tired from this past weekend, and definitely don't need to drink for probably another couple of days, I'm still planning on going out tonight. Maybe once I have kids (HA!) I won't want find it physically impossible to stay home on Halloween. Then again, maybe not (I do adore the sauce). I mean, how many other holidays cause children, teens and full grown adults to all dress up and act like complete lunatics? Other than Arbor Day, I can't think of another.

So there it is...Happy Halloween you bunch of losers. Go out and get drunk, or take the sage advice of Bushwick Bill and rob "little kids for bags". Hell, if you manage your time wisely you might be able to kill two birds with one stone. While I sincerely hope you choose to participate in all that tonight has to offer, there's one guy who I can guarantee you won't be celebrating Halloween tonight. That guy is Keyon Dooling. Don't believe me? Just read this quote from Keyon:

"I was never a big Halloween guy. I never really understood it. I didn’t go trick-or-treating as a kid. I still don’t know what it’s about."

Umm, alright then. I, for one, had no idea that Halloween could be such an abstract concept.

I'm still going through withdrawal. I got about 5 or 6 phone calls from various friends trying to get me out drinking last night. And I just couldn't do it. Total Joe Lame-ass.

Did you see Vladimir Radmonovic's hair last night? Its good to see the feathered 80s rock star hair back in the leauge. Everytime the cameras showed him I lost it.

So, this year for Halloween, I dressed up as an alcoholic shut-in. Then, I proceeded to play video games and drink Maker's Mark all night by myself, you know, to make it more authentic. One minute, everything's fine. The next thing I know, it's 8 a.m., I'm still drunk, I'm missing my phone, there is whiskey all over the floor and my TV remote is smashed.

Next year, I'm going to dress up as hot-chick-banging lottery winner, since apparently I turn into whatever I dress up as for Halloween.
