Yesterday, my friends and I spent the afternoon perusing shops in Sherman Oaks. It was cloudy, and I found myself a hazelnut brew. There was a street fair going on, so we people-watched, laughed, went to an old record shop, and, of course, began the hunt for Halloween costumes. Masks, socks, wigs (“look at this one!”)–I tried on about five different pairs of glasses that all got shot down with a terribly serious “I’m having trouble even looking at you right now.”
Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I plan to spend it in Hollywood this year. Proceeds from the party I’m going to go to Lullalee’s Literacy for Children. As I checked out their website, I realized there are probably parties and events all over the Los Angeles area that are using Halloween as an excuse to fundraise for charities and causes.
