The packaging for this trendy extra large ice cube silicone mold by Fred claims “…nothing’s cooler than a crypt, icier than a lifeless stare, colder than fate.”. While that may or may not be true this 3D ice mold certainly produces an ice “cube” able to sufficiently chill a beverage without attendant watering down of drinks. Using this mold to follow the current trend in icing drinks is fun and would be a great addition to the Halloween themed bar, but comes at a cost as each lists for $10.00 on the Sur La Table website. So you’d need to purchase multiples to fill the needs for a party. I ordered four and the results are great, easy to use and look amazing. Lots of fun.
So the Park is open an additional hour, the 13th hour, for this Friday the 13th event. All in all an excellent sampling of Disney flavored Halloween, decor, music, costumes, food, etc. I’m posting this a bit early so it’s still the 13th. That magical 13th hour to be experienced offline…thanks to those of you who checked in for the first 13 posts.
Ok, so Villains were out for picture taking opportunities and the music was pretty good standard Halloween fare (Thriller, for instance), the park is packed and it’s perfect weather. Bandwidth is weak due to overuse so pics will post tomorrow.
Here they are! This nice lady was answering the question, if I was a zombie, what would I look like? I think she pulls it off…
Ok so the Ghiradhelli store in California Adventure highlighted their Pumpkin Spice Caramel Square. Delicious! Couples their smooth and creamy milk chocolate with a very distinctly flavored pumpkin spice caramel. You can smell the spiciness before it melts in your mouth.
Expecting huge crowds (ala the Leap Year One More Day event last year) I was surprised to find the crowds bearable and the lines standard for a Friday night. The Friday the 13th event heralds the Halloween season for 2013 and so far so evil.
Shall I tell you a tale of why I love so much
these black and orange figurines called the boney bunch?
They show up every august to herald Halloween
Their Boney faces grinning wide as they appear on scene.
Boney Sir presenting Boney Bride her spider ring
Charon Boney in his boat dead and ferrying
Gypsy Boney gazing deeply into her sparkling globe
Reaper Boney keeping time with his scythe and robe
Headless horseman Boney riding hard on english saddle
Baby Buggy Boney making ruckus with his rattle
Lady Boney prim beneath her spider parasol
A juggling Mr Bonehead with his top hat very tall
Eternal Slumber Boneys read as off to sleep they drift
Bobbing apples Boney using his peculiar gift
Organ player Boney playing organ tunes to fright
Submariner Boney floating by with his flashing lights
Witchy Boney on her broom, hat adorned with spider
and Monster Bride waves hello, with her Frank beside her
So why do I love Boneys? The answer seems so clear
I love that they remind me of Halloween throughout the year!
