Happy Halloween!

Bruce came into work in his costume to watch over the cauldron of choccies:




I finally got to wear my new hat as part of my Purple Witch costume:




After handing out to the kids, we watched Gary Oldman as Dracula (1992). Fascinating film: some of it is awful, some of it is wonderful, it's completely over the top but Oldman's performance is unforgettable.

What a cute couple. While the two of you were photographed I ran in and stole all the candy. :)

Instead of Dracula, I decided to watch the '32 version of The Mummy, with Boris Karloff and Zita Johann(What a name!). Atmospheric and creepy movie.
Karloff actually has lines to recite.

You look like a Glamah witch. Love it!

Now you both look dashing.;)
The Francis Ford Coppola adaptation is my all time favorite. It is not just visually stunning, but to me this movie managed to capture the very essence of real, deep, true love. One that lasts forever.

"Forsooth is this a purple haze I see before me?"

Sounds like a Shakespear quote (sort of!) to me...
