SWAG! (Skeletons, Wizards, And Ghosts!)
hope you enjoy your trick or treat trek or trot!
dear people who aren’t afraid of anything, or who might be afraid of some things,1
happy halloween week!
or if you prefer, happy thursday!
i’m grateful that you’re here, wherever you are and whenever it is.
and now, here are the halloween-themed funs for the day/week/season/all times!
A) how i feel:
i feel bad for anti-maskers who love halloween.2
B) what skeletons are:
skeletons are scariest when they are moving around, covered in skin, and voting to take away the rights of marginalized people.3
C) where fun is:
a fun halloween costume could be
to dress up as a beautiful wizard
and then stand over a subway grate
while the air blows your robes up
and call it "Merlin Monroe"4
that’s all for today.5
here’s some quick reminders for Future todays:
— i’m headlining Upstairs at Goodnights in Raleigh, NC on November 5-6.

thank you for being here.
hope your halloween is exactly as spooky or unspooky as you want.
and i hope ALL of your days are exactly as spooky or unspooky as you want, too.
how are you? what are your plans? are you dressing up? as what?
share anything you’d like, with me, yourself, and/or the world!
love to all.
one more bonus fun: here’s a photo from a past halloween, when i went dressed up as this dog and this dog went as me. we both nailed it, see?
“sometimes it’s fun to be afraid. are you afraid of anything?”
”i’m afraid not.”
”well that can be fun, too.”
i feel good for pro-maskers and vaccinations and people living as healthily and happily as they want and can. hope you’re doing well!
it’s almost election day, which is sometimes the real scariest holiday. vote, everyone!
when i shared this on instagram, an astute fan pointed out that Merlin AND Marilyn both hung out with notable Arthurs! bonus fun!
i know that i mentioned ghosts in the subject line, and then i didn’t mention ghosts anywhere in the body of this post, but that’s how ghosts do sometimes. so this is a mostly non-ghost post i host. (for some, this post might be haunted by the holy ghost. for others, it might be more of a ghost hole than wholly ghost.)
