Halloween.... Yawn........

Ok..... not to be a party pooper but I dont like Halloween. I think its a big o' waste. As a kid I felt the same way. I asked my dad why do WE buy candy to give out.... then I go door to door to GET candy?
I rather stay home watch a movie and eat the candy that WE had.
And dressing up? Goofy. (no one yell at me now)
As an adult.... I feel similar. As a Christian I dont like Halloween. Dressing up is interesting though. But thats only if its a woman and she is looking GOOD! 8)

Am I alone here? Are you all going to yell at me? Why is my cat licking my darn pan?!

I never had much interest, since I don't have a family.. I dunno.. I DO this year... Life is all about having fun! I'm just in the mood to dress up have good eats and good drinks. Each person is entitled to their opinion. The fact that I'm going to be giving candy out in my new house tomorrow, has me all excited. I just love this time of year anyway.. all the fun holidays.

I agree DS, I always thought it was stupid. However, I did like going around with my brother (7 years older) and his buddies because they would never knock on a door and ask for candy, they were more into the practical jokes. My parents let me go with him until they got a call from the minister that he and his buddies had carried his VW up the steps and put it infront of the door.



ALERT: Oregon leash laws will be strictly enforced today at Autzen Stadium when the OREGON DUCKS lick the WASHINGTON HUSKIES

I could not get a ticket, sold out, so my friends and I are meeting at a sports bar.

best part about being catholic. you can do anything you want, and so long as you're sorry and tell the priest, you're off the hook.

only the jews have us beat. they just have to be sorry for everything on one day a year....

We always look forward to Halloween.

We enjoy carving some pumpkins, lighting up the cattle skull so it looks just a bit spooky, putting the candles about, and doling out tons of candy to the local children.

This is the kids' night, and we take great joy helping them have fun.
