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.)

Can you believe my husband and daughter actually like that stuff? Last night as we were out my husband said to my daughter, "Now remember, if you get any Sugar Babies, they're mine." Next house she went to? Gave her Sugar Babies.

My daughter was zombified, too! She was supposed to be a vampire, but had lost a few pieces of the costume after attending a party. She did a little presto-chango routine and ended up being a zombie-goth-prom girl instead (and scared the little kids).

Apparently many people do, and I'm the weird one for not liking those! (I think it's because my Grandmother only had those kinds of candy, which meant they were a bazillion years old. Gimmie Heath bars, yum!!)

SUGAR BABIES. I loved those when I was teeny. Now they make my teeth ache. We got a Sugar Daddy from one house! (One giant Sugar Baby on a stick? Everything's better on a stick!)

I love the versatility of costumery in your house, AWESOME!! Zombies rule. (And did you see the links for the chick tracts?)

did you see the links for the chick tracts

Yes...those tracts had the amazing affect of making me want to laugh and scream all at the same time. The timing's weird, too, for seeing that one about evolution because as I was getting ready for my day this morning I was thinking about someone on my flist who doesn't believe in evolution.

It's as though I was meant to see that very chick tract. Scary! And/or proof that God works in mysterious ways :-).

Ahahahahha! YES. But is it GOD? The one true god? Or is it SATAN, giving you mocking fodder?

The whole evolution one FLOORED me. I love how evil and Croo-Elle the Evolution Teaching Teacher was drawn. And how fearful little Timmy is (good work, Susy!) and ready to accept Jesus to not BURN IN HELLFIRE.

They're AMAZING.

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.
