    I had no trick or treaters tonight. It's a cool night with no rain.

    But very few of the houses on my street have their lights on and the Bible-Bangers behind me aren't even home.

    Could it be that the Swine Flu scare has frightened off the parents of the kids in my neighborhood?

    Usually I have quite a few kids.

    Well, that's more candy for me I guess.

    I make it a point not to go to parties on Halloween because I don't want the kids to think I'm one of those families that don't participate....but this is ridiculous. I was gonna dress up and put up decorations. I was gonna be a vampire.

    Now I'm glad I didn't go to all of that trouble.

    Happy Halloween to everyone anyway.

    Maybe there was a really good carnival in the neighborhood.

    I love those things. None of the stress of walking around streets full of hyped up kids and vehicles.

    We hit about 4 houses and my boy was like "I want to go to the CARNIBAL!"

    We went to the carni"bal" for 2 hours, I spent 14 dollars, the kids had a ball.

    The Tennessee Vols wore black jerseys for the first time in their history and whooped up on South Carolina bigtime......

    I'm putting on Young Frankenstein and I'm gonna forget this night ever happened.

    I guess this is what you get when you have the kind of manipulative fucks we have in Washington these days.

    They've got everyone too friggen scared to act like normal.

    I wonder what the lack of candy sales is gonna do to the economy.

    I had no trick or treaters and I am really upset.

    What the fuck am I to do with all these Snickers bars, razorblades and rat poison?

    Sorry, no Carnibals

    Maybe it's just that the kids are getting lazy.

    Who knows what it is.

    Next to Christmas this evening was the best night of the year for me when I was a kid.

    I never liked Halloween. I thought I did, I'd stress over it for a week before, and was always burned out afterwards.

    Our tricks or treaters were light this year. Youngest friends all bailed on her last minute so she got dressed up and gave out candy. Son . . . is sick. I'm pretty sure he has a sinus infection. Hoping the doc is seeing folks tomorrow. He went out some but was disappointed in the rain and lack of fire pit hanging with the neighbor. I don't know if piggy flu kept folks home or not. Lots of just sick going around here.
