I feel a little funny celebrating anything, much less a Friday, given the tragedy of Sandy on the East Coast. Many of my friends and family are displaced right now, without water or power. I am intensely frustrated by my inability to help. If anyone knows of ways for us to help the East Coasters from other parts of the country, please let me know. So many are still trapped, running out of gas, food, the list goes on. The only good I can see coming of this, is that perhaps NYC will become a bicycle city like Amsterdam and others.
We did go out and celebrate Halloween here in LA with a vengeance, however. People in LA love this holiday, perhaps more than all others, because it allows for so much fantasy. Set dressing, costumes, makeup! It really is a movie town’s dream come true.
