HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!!!!!!!!!
On such a day it is not surprising that I have some good Sarcasmo related news to share. But, as it is such a day, I don't have the time to do it justice. So you'll have to stop back to see what's up. In the meantime, enjoy your Halloween. Here is a post that reminds us how Sarcasmo celebrated her Halloween. For her it was a season, not a day. Enjoy.
I know that with only 9 days left until Halloween, there has to be at least one of you still trying to come up with the perfect costume. On the off chance that there are 5 of you in close proximity of each other, or if you can convince four of your friends to wear costumes that preclude sitting down, here you go. See, the Corner always has your back.
If you are looking to cover that back, as well as the attached front, let me direct you here: Feanor & Poppy's Cabinet of Wearable Curiosities. Sarcasmo would have loved that name. (She may have quibbled about the 's only being on Poppy and not on Feanor as well). And she would have loved the store. It was her belief that there was no such thing as too many T-shirts in one's closet.
I know you can't spill the beans about your costumes before Halloween. But if anyone wants to share photos after, send them along and I'll post them. Ditto if you buy a T-Shirt and want to model it for us.
It's about time for one of these, don't you agree? I was searching back, through the genius that is Sarcasmo , for something Halloweeny, or at least fallish. There are not as many Halloween related posts as you might think. Most likely because Sarcasmo was too busy to post much this time of year.
But I happened upon this, and it made me smile. So I am sharing it with you. An Original Sarcasmo posted by her on October 3, 2005.
Consider the fact that Sarcasmo once told me and Sarcas-dad that one of the best moments in her life was when she got a phone call asking if she could be a last minute zombie extra in a movie but had to turn it down because she was already volunteering as a ghost pirate on a haunted ship. Knowing that, you will understand why Friend of the Corner Vis Major sent us this email.
" I have a feeling Star would've bought this plush zombie (http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/plush/ac4a/) & cheerfully dismembered it while singing along to Johnathan Coulton's zombie song, "RE: Your Brains." :D
Yeah she would have! Thanks Vis.
If you are in the Philly area, or for any reason find yourself so this Friday night, I know where you can get good coffee and good comedy for a good price. Friend of the Corner TrackerNeil , sent along the details

As always, Sarcasmo's Corner is hoping you will participate in this blog by sending links Sarcasmo would have posted, stories, commentary, or whatever you feel appropriate to firstname.lastname@example.org. Especially those related to her favorite holiday, Halloween.
Based on the fact that you can see me, I assume my server made it's way safely from LA to the sunny shores of San Diego. Not that I got a postcard , or an email, or anything. A pone call would have been nice. Just an "I'm here safe and sound" would have been enough, but , you know, I'm not bitter. Sitting here. Worrying.
Now that I've gotten that off my chest, guess what? It is only 28 days until the coolest day of the year.The day Sarcasmo planned for all year. The holiday of holidays. Yes, it is only 27 days until----Halloween!!!!!!
In order to be ready to give the day it's due I have been doing a little blog cleaning. I opened up a file , blew out the spooky cobwebs and dusted off all the links I threw in there for later. As I was alone at the time, I said to myself, " If not now,when?". Or maybe I said "What am I saving these for?". I'm not really sure. I wasn't listening. Either way, it's time to clean out the closet.
So here are some links. They have no obvious link to each other, or this post. But I have been carting them around for a while and I need to make some room.
You Can't Go Wrong- with a blog that has a sidebar of Tenacious Toys , a link to an action figure customizing site, and a post titled Gamma-Go Wooden Deathbots: Lederhose Edition. This was sent to us by Friend of the Corner Vis Major.
Did I Mention Halloween- How about them eyes?(via ShinyShiny )
Where no Man Has Gone Before- you can now if you have a few bucks.(via Wired ) Take a look and see who already went.
For the Well Dressed Blogger- but you can't carry your lipstick in it.(via Popgadget )
Faded Photographs - only if your monitor is on the fritz. But if you're nostalgic for what once was a photograph ( do any of you remember a photograph?) take a look at this. Next someone will make digital photo corners that appear to dry up and fall out of our digital photo albums. You don't remember those either, do you? ( via ShinyShiny )
