Welcome to Britt5091: Origins, where I dig up old blog posts I used to write for IGN’s community under the username Britt5091. Some posts may make you giggle, some may make your eyes bleed, and some may make you stroke your beard in a pensive manner. All you need to know is that these posts, no matter how terrible some of them may be, ultimately lead to everything I do now.
I hope your Halloween is Awesom-o and contains Lightyears of fun.

See what I did there?
To recover from last night’s escapade (and to prepare for tonight’s), I’m playing a hearty amount of Left 4 Dead and maybe later I’ll blast aliens in Resistance. I’ve got a Halloween theme going on.
Halloween in the Pacific Northwest is almost always rainy, windy and cold. When I was little, my mom would bundle me up to the point where my costume was almost unrecognizable. But man…trick-or-treating was a blast, wasn’t it?
I still can feel that utter disappointment when elderly folks would hand us apples or toothbrushes. Ugh.
As I got older and was too old to trick-or-treat but too young to party my friends and I would visit those cheesy haunted houses, pumpkin patches and watch scary movies. And now that I?m an old geezer I’m able enjoy all of the above — except I don’t think I could get away with trick-or-treating.
What trouble are all of you getting into tonight?
Update – August 24th, 2012
I SEE WHAT I DID THARE.
AND I LOOK LIKE A BABY. Also, I can’t believe it was almost three years ago that I was playing Resistance. Feels like yesterday. I never played the second one but I’ve heard I should.
Just once I’d like Halloween to be, like, warm. Admittedly it’s hard to wear those skimpy Halloween costumes when it’s practically freezing outside.
