Thanks for the birthday wishes. As my birthday is El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and this year's Halloween party in our neighborhood - the theme was Day of the Dead. It was awesome - I was surrounded by skeletons, and some other "dead" creatures. I wore a skeleton body suit and a black tutu. We partied and danced well into the night, and then with the time change, got an extra hour of debauchery.
