I know you’re busy thinking about what candy you’re going to buy “for the children” this weekend, and then eat it all yourself — or maybe that’s just me — but if you get bored of that….

Don’t forget to enter our Gossip Girl: Psycho Killer giveaway. The deadline is Sunday night. Get spooky.

– The absolute other side of the culture coin is this montage of the best four minutes from Sandra Lee’s Halloween special, but you guys. YOU GUYS. You have to watch it. It is HILARIOUS. (Gawker)
