Update and Quick “Ghost” Story…

My most favorite time of year is just around the bend!

Oh, who’m I kidding, it is DEFINITELY already here.  With the Halloween season comes ghosts, goblins, witches, falling leaves, jack-o-lanterns, horror movies, pumpkin-spice-everything and fortune tellings. Speaking of which!  Check out this fun, spooky, new campaign I got to work on.

Your favorite snack brand also launched a new pop-up restaurant in Hollywood this week called The Flamin’ Hot Spot.  My wife and I were invited to enjoy all of the amazing foodie goods put together by Chef Roy Choi, who I even got to meet personally.  He was SO cool.  And the place was put together fabulously.  It was like a Chester ART MUSEUM in there…and we kinda never wanted to leave.

So are you ready for a quick ghost story…?  I posted this on my Facebook last week:

I could barely face the one-year deathiversary of Mickey the pug yesterday but something REALLY strange happened very early Sunday morning.

We have this digital frame in our living room filled with Mick pics and it hadn’t been turned on in a good long while. We keep it atop the little polished, wooden box they sent his ashes it. So I woke up around 3am and came out into the living room for a security check and wouldn’t you know it, the darn thing was ON…flashing the pics. You need a remote to turn it on. Like…it takes a WHILE to get going.

I got really freaked out. This had NEVER happened with the frame. Nic says it was Mick saying hello but the logic part of me couldn’t understand how it happened. So I clicked it off with the remote and sat there in the dark for about an hour.

Listen, it’s not like this sorta thing hasn’t happened to me before. I try so hard to be very open to small miracles. But this one has taken me a few days to process. It’s OK if you think I’m fulla crap. But I just wanted to share.
