Tonight I finally got around to plugging in the Kinect we won at Dave and Buster’s. I don’t have any games for it yet, but I did play around with the included Kinect Adventures. It snapped this photo of me jumping while virtually river rafting. I can’t see myself playing this often, but it was fun. I’m downloading a bunch of Kinect game demos now and look forward to playing Rise of Nightmares soon.Tweet
I finally finished decorating the interior of our house for Halloween, including the annual Hallway of Doom. I picked up quite a few additions to the decor this year, like the glow-in-the-dark skeleton and sticky bats seen here. I also added a handful of decorations outside that can stay there for the rest of October. The rest of the outside fun gets set up on Halloween day, usually finishing a few seconds before the first trick-or-treater arrives. But that’s still a few weeks away. I’ll try to post more pictures of our inside decorations soon.Tweet
I took Universal Orlando’s “Unmasking the Horror” tour for the first time, which brought me through three Halloween Horror Nights haunted houses: The Forsaken, Winter’s Night, and my favorite of the year – Nevermore. While descending into the madness of Edgar Allan Poe, I stopped to pose for a photo in the room inspired by The Pit and the Pendulum. Fortunately, I escaped with my innards intact.
