Speaking of creepy cool, recently a totally creepy cool place opened across from my beloved Rialto Theatre.
As many of you know, the Rialto features prominently in WARP SPEED, my novel about a Star Trek geek. Marley Sandelski's family lives in the old theatre, and some say the place is haunted . . .
So I thought that for Halloween, we should pay a visit to The Curio Emporium in my hometown . . .
Peepy was awed by all the cool creepy things she had never seen before . . .
Oh, look! The owners of The Curio Emporium are in one of these photos. Can you guess which one?
Meanwhile, about last Friday, Scholastic had its annual Halloween Costume Party, and I was there! (Sort of.)
Who took 2nd place??? Why, none other than Tracy van Straaten, dressed as everyone's favorite Peep!!!!
And finally, Scenes From a Past Spooky Peepish Blog . . .
HAPPY HALLOWEEN from me and my Peep!!!
