It's All Hallows Eve. I grew up in Nevada, and it so happens that Oct. 31 was also a state holiday: Nevada Day. This meant that we got Oct. 31 off every year from school. It rocked.
Even though I am now quite a way removed from my Nevada schooldays, it still feels weird not to get Halloween off.
In the meantime, celebrate by re-living (in an entirely text-based fashion) the Junior Mints episode of Seinfeld. Junior Mints are my favorite candy. Ah, for the days when I could look at a box of Junior Mints without raging guilt over my waistlline.
