Has anyone out there seen Masters of Sex on Showtime? I saw advertisements and I have to admit, I was intrigued. While I think Michael Sheen (I can’t stop picturing Aro) and Lizzy Caplan are great together, I think the jury may be out on this one, so I’ll keep watching and see where it takes me. Here’s a little trivia, Nicholas D’Agosto, the actor that plays Dr. Ethan Haas graduated from Marquette University a year before I graduated. I don’t remember seeing him around campus, but I didn’t spend any time around the Theater Department until my Senior year. I spent most of my time with fellow Bandos, or with my Mock Trial teams.
Enough about television. This was another weekend spent around the house. I put up my Halloween decorations outside. My mom had made some headstones years ago. Since my since my dad doesn’t decorate for Halloween like my mom did, he said I could have them-or borrow them. I hauled my plastic bins from the basement and got to work.
My front yard has this wonderful little flower bed that was the perfect place for a little graveyard. It curves out in front of my half of the duplex and has a Hosta, a beautiful peony plant, and a few other plants. The front yard also has a crab-apple tree that has prefect branches to hang things from.
Besides the headstones my mom made, I also inherited the skull fence from her. I was trying to go for a under light type feeling. I’m still looking for some bones I can make stick out of the ground, and I think I may pick up some mini strobe lights to place in there for the trick or treaters.
I made these ghosts last year. Which was my first year passing out candy and decorating outside. My previous apartments were not optimal for outside decorating. I will need to get a black light or a red light for my front porch. The normal light is too bright and ruins the mood. I also have to have the porch light on to have my outside light on. Whoever did the electrical put the outside lights on a switch…who does that?
