An Epilogue to a Bite

Please get a full assessment of your physical appearance before committing to a bare-chested Hulk costume

Where was I yesterday? Among other things, I had my nose bitten (yes, it was human; no, don't ask), was fingerprinted for the FBI (no, it does not speak to my Bond Girl status), and prepped yet another Golden Heart entry. Will third time be a charm? Who cares when it's an excuse to buy a great dress and sit near Nora Roberts? Kidding. Sort of. So you see, yesterday was full, not the least of which was finding this great little diversion for Halloween.

Visual aid time. Someone hit the lights, please.

I'm a huge fan of short film, as evidenced here and here and here (an awesome one for Halloween, too, BTW). This new animated short, Epilogue, is just the brand of creepy I love in my Halloween, more Hitchcock and Twilight Zone than Saw and serial killers. If you have four minutes, I think you'll enjoy it, too. I love the jerky style of animation. It adds so much to the tone.

Tomorrow, I'll strap on my knee-high Bond Girl boots and sizzle the 007 Blog up with Romantic Halloween ideas. Some of you may remember I did this last year, but the muse has had time to concoct more ideas for you and that special someone to celebrate Hallow's Eve. Be sure to come back and show me your fangs. Please, no biting. I've had enough of that this week.

What did you think of Epilogue? Why the 911 call at the beginning?

Oh, L.A.--I love your crazy, hit-every-corner thought process.

And yes, you're going to nail the GH this year. (I still have my bullhorn and it's *aching* to come to Nashville!)

I am simply amazed every time I read about your Fastdrafting (I was just catching up on some of your posts)--thousands upon thousands of words every day--wow! Congrats on that and on the pre-Halloween fun. Off to see you at the 007 residence :).

...which you won't be at until *tomorrow* (helps to actually know today's date :). See you there, then! xo

Loved Epilogue! The sound effects, the pans, the music, the animation - all terrific! Halloween is my favorite holiday so this was right up my alley too.

Best of luck with the Golden Heart!
