If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Who did it?

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm so excited for tomorrow- two reasons, one its Halloween and I really like Halloween, and two I find out tomorrow if my other short story with be accepted or rejected with glimmertrain press!

But you should have seen me last night! I went to a murder mystery halloween party and I was so scared at first because I knew no one- not even the host- just my manly man and my friend L. 
L. is the one who invited us. So we dressed up in 1920's clothes (or as close as we could get) and hashed out a murder!

Me as a "dame"

Manly Man as "hit man"
The host did a great job at decorating for the party! I wish I would have brought my camera...

 Any way- we got to play in characters...she handed out these little read booklets that told what we could give away to the seven other players and what we had to keep to our selves until the end.
 By Chance- I became Ali who is a murder mystery novelist...and guess what she tried to hypnotize the guy before he died, but someone came and interrupted her.
So I didn't kill him! LOL

 We did find out in the end who he was killed by, and I really enjoyed playing in character and arguing with everyone, Sighs, things like that don't happen often in my hometown.

Anyway- Tonight I'm going out to the bar to let loose, dress up in my second costume- A fairy of course! and dance with my friends. manly man is our designated driver for the evening and he will be a Mob boss type of guy- with all black and a red tie- I plan on taking pictures of this event and posting them up tomorrow!

 I love Halloween!

I hope all of you have a very safe weekend!

Awesome. I've never been to a murder-mystery party before. Fancy your character being a novelist!

Great idea for an evening. It doesn't even have to be Halloween, either. Hmmm.
