On Friday, I received this chilling image containing a beautiful message. I have been chosen. I have officially been invited to the NYC Halloween Haunted House Spring Haunt!

So, now I wait once again. What comes next? My excitement fades to concern. My memory reminds me of the warning: “There are 62 invitations going out and only 20 tickets available – so don’t get too comfortable if you’ve been invited.”

I won’t be able to truly relax until I have a ticket in my hand.

My mission to attend the Vortex Theatre’s exclusive off-season haunt officially began when I received three e-mails yesterday at 10:29am-10:30am from NYC Halloween Haunted House. Each e-mail contained one dot (.) creating an ellipsis or ‘suspension point.’

These masters of suspense have me checking my e-mail obsessively.

How long will the suspense last? How long will they toy with us? There are 62 invitations going out and only 20 tickets available. Once the invitations go out it will be a cutthroat battle to see who can secure their visit to this exclusive and unconventional off-season haunt.

NYC’s scariest haunted house will strike fear into its invited guests at a secret location this April. To receive an invitation you must have attended one of their previous haunts. The Raven & Black Cat is keeping their fingers crossed that they receive an invitation to this bone-chilling exclusive event.

Dear Black Swan,
Thank you for this fabulous dose of epic crazy. I was thrilled and on edge the entire film. I gasped out loud several times and the last 10 minutes gave me chills. You take the idiom ‘the show must go on’ to an entirely new level. Such drama. Twisted warped self loathing meets graceful disciplined ambition. Thank you again.
P.S. Natalie Portman, get ready to win a serious amount of awards for this performance.

The tree is up, the presents are wrapped, and the first snow flakes have fallen over nyc. With just 9 days until Christmas, festivites are swinging into high gear. Here are my Holiday must haves.
The Nightmare Before Christmas and the 1964 Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special. My two favorite Christmas movies.
Gingerbread Cookies – Check out these amazing SKELETON Gingerbread Cookies from My Paper Crane!
Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity III for when you’re toasty warm in front of the fire and Williams Sonoma‘s Peppermint Hot Chocolate to warm up after coming inside from the cold. 
Starbucks‘ Seasonal Caramel Brulee Latte – Venti Caramel Brulee Latte with Skim and only 1 pump of Syrup = Delicious Christmas.
 Annual Sibling Gift War – Christmas becomes the ultimate war zone as my brother and I joyfully compete to see who can select the gifts that will inspire the most delight.

This afternoon I was discovering all the latest fads to hit the ‘Hoodie’ in the past few years. Apparently while I wasn’t looking the Hoodie has evolved into a costume for every day life. And everyone knows how much I love costumes. So here are my favorite Hoodies to add to your holiday gift list.

Turn heads with a famous face printed on your hood! Current offerings: Ralphie from ‘A Christmas Story,’ Red Riding Hood, Abraham Lincoln, Sock Monkey, All Ears, Lego Man, Amelia Earhart, and Bill Cosby. Check out their Classic Collection of famous faces here.

Prices start at $49.99

By far the cutest take on the ‘monster hoodie’ trend. These clever designers accessorize American Apparel sweatshirts with all the fab monster must-haves: claws, big eyes, white teeth, dino scales, and a big red mouth! Monster monikers like ‘Valerie the Vicious’ and ‘Billy the Biter’ make these just too cute to pass up. Get yours now! They are selling out fast!
Prices Range:  $10-$85
Anyone missing Halloween can get through the winter months with this Skeleton Hoodie that morphs into a costume anytime you like.
Price Range: $19.99-$44.99

I cannot wait to see this.

If you are in the NYC area now through January 2nd you must catch a performance of the emo rock musical, ‘Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,’ playing to rave reviews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Broadway.

You’ve Never Seen American History Like This…

Discount Tickets Available Here Until December 19, 2010.
