yeah, oops.  
Because I am a degenerate, I had cause to watch a DVD from Netflix on Friday instead of working on my paper. (It was the first disc of S2 of Being Human, which I still haven't seen. I was only going to watch a little bit, while I ate dinner! Ha.) At the beginning of the DVD, as there are, there were previews. And this voice started saying that the universe was vast and complicated, and sometimes impossible things just happen, and we call them miracles...

I cannot even describe the ridiculous glee-noise I made. It was truly pathetic. And then at the end of the little trailer, I said (out loud, to my empty apartment), "I was not expecting this!" And giggled like an idiot through most of the next trailer.

In other mildly idiotic news, PBS was showing a special on graveyards yesterday. I'd seen it before, a couple of years ago, so I didn't think much of it at the time, because hey--special on graveyards, this is totally normal! It took me several minutes to go, "...oh right. Because tomorrow is Halloween."

Hopeless. I am hopeless.

For the past week or so, I've been asking myself — multiple times a day — why people keep mentioning candy and costumes on Twitter. And each time I, too, have to remind myself, "Oh, right, Halloween..."

I'm so relieved that from tomorrow, I'll be delivered from this state of perpetual puzzlement for another year!

I do that every year with the Super Bowl. This year I don't even have the Food Network (they usually do a whole marathon of tailgating episodes and suchlike), so...

I remembered that it was Halloween--I just completely failed to associate the presence of graves on my TV with it.

For what it's worth, during my first year in Oxford, it took me walking past at least eight different people in costume on a Friday night to figure out that oh, wait, it was Halloween. ;)

From what I've heard, that is a relatively easy mistake to make in Oxford! :)
