Steve and GretchenWhile twerking Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke costumes are among the top sellers, according to Halloween Spirit, I think clever beats twerking every time.

These costumed partiers at left are friends of mine, and I hope they won an award for their costumes last year. Steve and Gretchen Bahm are dead ringers for Uncle Fester and Wednesday from The Addams Family. That’s Christina Ricci and Christopher Lloyd from the movie below.

Here’s what Steve and Gretchen really look like: Gretchen and Steve
Other popular costumes for 2013 include Duck Dynasty, Hunger Games and Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy. Costumes from Batman, Day of the Dead and Walking Dead are ranking right at the top as well. Oh and the party finger.

Sheesh. I think Uncle Festus and Wednesday are far more entertaining.

I hear my friends at the Welcome Club of Erie are having a party where everyone will be dressed as a witch. Last year they had dozens of witches in one room. You know you’ll be seeing those pictures here as soon as I can get them. Dressing up isn’t just for kids.

Finally an excuse to eat something not salad or chicken to follow up the holiday-hubbub-of-have-a-bite-of-everything. Or 10 bites. I have been craving all things deli so much that I ate a reuben out of the vending machine last week at the Erie Times-News. It was remarkably good, and I know that’s corned beef — not pastrami. I’m getting real pastrami for Monday’s National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day.  Pastrami is deli meat — and it’s beef — it’s what’s for dinner. This picture is from Recipes.com – follow the link for the recipe. It includes pastrami, corned beef, Swiss cheese and coleslaw.

And that’s not all. Wednesday is International Hot and Spicy Food Day. Good for us.

If you are reading this on Sunday, it’s L’Arche L’asagna tasting day at Brewerie in Erie, Pa. I made lasagna yesterday, but that’s not going to stop me from tasting lasagna from a dozen restaurants on Sunday. All proceeds benefit L’Arche, a community of faith where life is shared between people with and without intellectual disabilities.
