Greetings Webtaculators! So. I’m going to be honest here. Next week is Halloween (aka my favorite holiday), and I have no idea what to be. This is a problem. Suggestions are welcome. One quick note – my costume requires something that can be combined with angel / fairy wings. It’s a tradition thing. Don’t ask. Anyway, on to the news.
