Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween
This is it, dudes, what we dark and twisty badasses wait all year for–Halloween. And if you’re like me, and one day of celebrating the orange and black, the spooky and macabre just isn’t enough–your celebration has either already started or starts today. Happy 13 Days of Halloween to 1 and all! So, today we’re going to be celebrating creepy, scary stuff. You know the stuff I’m talking about . . . it’s the stuff that makes us look twice and run once. You know, I really need to stop researching these posts late at night because I always end up scaring the shiatsu out of myself! It gets so bad that when I’m done, I have to go watch a bunch of funny vines or videos to calm my ass down. So this Halloween season, here’s my motto:
Let’s get started.
In this post:
