I can’t believe October is almost over!
Happy Halloween, I love you all.
I thought that the Carrie backround was crazy because I was reading Carrie instead of doing my German homework, and I decided to procrastinate more by looking on this lovely website and BAM! A german Carrie poster. I was sure that it was a sign.
I totally thought about going as Carrie for Halloween though. She’s great. But then I was too lazy to actually put a costume together, despite a Carrie costume being pretty easy. Eh.
Oh god, to think that there are multiples of Willow’s fluffy pink sweater from that episode! Perhaps theres a way to track them down…
I don’t think you guys realize just how much I love the Amy Poehler one.
Also, Happy November everyone!
I LOVE ALL OF THEM!
Aw, This month has gone so fast, and it’s been a great one. <3
ESPECIALLY AT ROOKIE 'CAUSE I LOVE ALL OF U GUYS.
Just kidding but I thought it was appropriate considering the episode that that Buffy photo comes from lol
ALSO THESE BACKGROUNDS WERE FANTASTIC
argh this month went way too fast.
so many things i wanted to do, SO LITTLE TIME.
October’s over? But wait… no? It’s not winter now, is it? I love october, everything is so beautiful outside. and this month on rookie was the best! So many great articles and halloween vibes! I love all those pictures.
Can we just pretend it’s still october with good weather? :))
Oh no fall is almost overrrrrrrr! The backgrounds were crazy good this month and the weekend content is such a cool addition!
Mr Spock will always, always be my hero. In fact, I am going to watch some Star Trek episodes right now. LOVE!
The Amy Poehler background KILLED ME. I was looking forward to today; I wanted to save it. And good thing I didn’t read Rookie the day the Joker was the background image! :S
I think that October’s backgrounds were probably my favourites so far, there was such a variety of fun and spookily awesome pictures. :D :D
#15 is my favourite. And I really liked to see the German Carrie-poster.
