It's weird that I'll always remember that. Oh, and he was my "boyfriend" when we were six. We sat together in Sunday School and he gave me a blue jean purse and a candy cane for my 6th birthday. RANDOM.

Halloween! I had 12 groups of trick or treaters. THAT IS IT! Um, let me remind everyone that I live in the suburbs, which translates into MANY MANY CHILDREN. I not only have left over candy that I bought, but all of the loot the Stonettes came home with. My normal routine is thus: buy just enough candy, pick out the nasty candy (the Sugar Babies, the Brach's toffees, all salt water taffy, the Tootsie Rolls) from the kids' loot bags and RECYCLE IT TO LATE COMING TRICK OR TREATERS. It's a genius plan that hasn't failed me yet. (It keeps us from having too much in the house.) Well. SO MUCH FOR THAT PLAN.

While going through the kids' stuff to pull out aforementioned crapandy (crap +candy) I found SEVERAL full sized bars of chocolate. !!! Apparently a bloc of five houses decided to go the full-sized bar route and ALL THE KIDS WERE HITTING THAT BLOCK. Plus, some houses gave out zip-loc bags of four and five pieces of candy. AND: most of the neighbors on my street are older, retired people, so their lights weren't on. Which meant that kids were SKIPPING MY BLOCK. Bah. Who wants Whoppers, Heath bars, or Almond Joys?

Funniest thing The Boy said (he looked SO AWESOME as a WWII Zombie soldier) while I was making his face look zombie-riffic: "faces always get the most trashed when you're a zombie." True dat. And we got not ONE Chick-tract all night. Sign of the Christian Right losing its stronghold in our neighborhood? Mayhaps! (I like how the "sinner" looks like Pig Pen. And how contrite the Evil Satanic Witchcraft Kids turned around. With the help of JESUS.) How was everyone else's night? (Oh, and Blessed Samhain to my Pagan flisters! I hope you dreamed of your ancestors and had lovely nights.)

(AND WHY IS LJ BLOCKING MY SCRUBS/ELLIOT ICON?? "Hi I'm a Whore ask me how." is on the icon, and she's FULLY DRESSED. Lame, LJ. Lame.)

Okay, so East Texas is DEFINITELY going to be Baptist. West Texas where Lyla prays to Jesus for Jason's legs to be healed and then fucks his best friend at his house where she can scream out (because she couldn't in her house or Jason's house) is going to be non-denominational Bible-study type religion. Straight line Bible translations. Very Chick-tract oriented stuff.

This is my favorite one of their tracts: If you believe in Evolution, you'll go to hell.

I swear, FNL just gets better every episode. EVERY EPISODE!!!

YAY YOU!!! I can't wait to see what you've done, when you're ready to share! (And seriously - check out those links. That'll give you an idea, YIKES.)

People are either mightily religious or just go to church on Sunday because you're supposed to, or are hard core non-believers, from my experience.

Bwahahahaha!!! You know right away that Miss Henn's evol 'cuz she's wearing a little black dress. Damn you to Hell, Coco Chanel!

*shakes fist and stuffs face with candy* ;P

My little corner of small-town northeast Texas is mostly Southern Baptist, with Presbyterians, Methodists, and Assembly of God all tied for second place. (I come from Pres/Meth stock myself.) The one church pamphlet my family's kids received in their trick-or-treat bags was pretty mild this year; just a small blurb about Satan being the original trick-or-treater (he promises you treats but tricks you instead, blah blah blah.) Not nearly as hysterical as that Wicked 'Ol Evilution one, and to its credit, it didn't badmouth Halloween.

What I find infuriating about Halloween naysayers is that they never seem to bother to research the holiday's history. If they did, they'd learn that most Halloween activities (costumes, noise-making, Day of the Dead skeleton cookies, trick-or-treating) were designed to feed the poor, to honor ancestors, and to trick/drive/frighten evil AWAY from villages, not invite it in!


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
