I’m 30, and the world hasn’t ended yet.

Go figure.

It’s nearly Halloween, spooky lights are up, mummy lights adorn the mantle, costumes ordered, now we just need to wait for the big day! To get in the spirit of the season (see what I did there?), I made an awesome Halloween playlist on Spotify – see the end of the post. It’s not quiiiiiet safe for work. Or parents.
