    Default Bored on halloween

    Well this sucks. There is a good chance that I might not be doing anything on halloween night. Both my mom and my girlfriend arent feelin too great, all my friends are goin to parties and goin trick or treatin, we have no candy to give out and i was lookin forward to dressin up as Indy again. And for some reason, it doesnt even feel like halloween where I live. Sure you see the occasional cut out pumpkin on a doorstep here and there but not as many as I remember growin up and seein every single house havin at least 5 pumpkins on their doorstep. Have people forgotten how fun halloween is? I remember when halloween was the SHIT but now its just too....normal (for lack of a better word). I remember when it was ok and cool to dress up like you had just been murdered by jason or michael myers and people thought it was awesome. But now its more "seen it" or "thats too gruesome". I remember when people would turn their entire house and front yard into satans lair or a full on graveyard with animatronic zombies just for the hell of it and because it was cool but I have yet to see one convincing "haunted house"

    When I was in about 3rd or 4th grade, there was a house down the street from mine that would ALWAYS, every year, turn his house and front yard into a full-on animitronic graveyard. He had the sound effects, the lights, the grave stones but the best part was that he actually dug graves in his front yard and put in life like, moving corpses and it was so popular that every year, the news would go to just his house and see what he added each year. But for some reason, he doesnt do it anymore and for me, that was always the highlight of halloween.

    Anyways, heres to hoping that we all have a kick ass but safe halloween!

    ahhh...you're getting older. Things just AREN'T as much fun as when we were kids. I'd love nothing more than to scare the shit outta some older elementary/jr. high kiddos tonight but am somewhat afraid of their parents' reactions. It's crazy, I know. Halloween is NOT the same as it used to be. People are too scared of tainted candy, children being scarred for life, etc. When I was in high school, Halloween was a blast! It usually involved eggs, water balloons, and hiding behind bushes. Ahhh...the good 'ol days.

    My Halloween is not gonna be much more exciting than your's, Thai. The only difference is that we do have an assload of candy to pass out.

    I have come to hate Halloween in my old age, so it would be no big deal to me if it just went away.

    Get my exercise in, though, as I have a gate between the front room and the rest of the house to keep psycho terrier from ripping apart the visitors!

    One thing the government didn't take into consideration when they changed the day that Daylight Saving Time ends is that it now falls after Halloween, meaning it was lighter later, and in some area maybe that's a comfort, but I had trouble getting the teen to take out the 8-year old because it wasn't dark yet. And I'll probably be hearing the doorbell right up until 9P or later I imagine.

    Halloween is awesome when you are a kid, but nothing special when you are an adult. At least to me.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Yeah, Halloween is an odd day. I'm in no man's land really. For a kid it's great. Then as you get older, you get too old to dress up, then it becomes cool again like in college for parties. I would feel ridiculous going out dressed up tonight to the bars, yet A LOT/Most will be dressed up. So I wouldn't fit in, so it's a strange night.

    1. As a kid Halloween ruled. Freaking loved it.

    2. As a parent when your kids are little it's a freaking blast. Other than it seemed to be balls cold outside every Halloween, I have awesome memories of walking them to the houses when they were 4,5,6 years old.

    3. As an adult with no ties to the little kid angle any more I hate it. Nothing is more embarrassing than seeing grown adults dressed up DURING THE DAY IN THEIR CARS GOING TO/FROM WORK. Sorry if I'm offending anyone here, but these people look like first rate assholes. Grow the fuck up and stop pretending you're 10 years old.

    Default Awwww

    I dressed up and went to work today. So there, guess I'm an asshole. LOL!! Then I came home and went Trick or Treating with the kids. I had a really fun time with them and I looked cute as hell... I don't care if I am acting like I am 10 years old. This is the only time I get to do it. My kids love it when I get the chance to be down on their level. They thought I was cool so I don't care what anyone else might think. Halloween is a fun time for me, always has been. I hope I never get too old to see the fun in some things...like I did when I was a kid. Some people just gotta lighten up!

    Well, you do have kids that you're entertaining so you squeak by under one of my Halloween bylaws. You're excused.

    The Devil's Bride. LOL!!! Since I am newly engaged I figured it was appropriate-LOL!! Actually, HH is not even close to the devil but it was a really cute costume. I'll have to figure out how to get the pics off my phone and put them on here. I am like a man in how I hate to read instructions until I have exhausted every last try to do something myself. I swear...always something to prove-LOL!!

    My daughter dressed up as a Corpse Bride (from the Tim Burton movie). She actually looked pretty creepy and won 1st place at the skating party Monday night. Being 7, she was beyond thrilled.
