Halloween 2015

My log has something to say. Not now.
Why don't you ask my log what it saw?

Fine then, why don't we ask the waiter from the Meaning of Life?
 And the usual twelve crates of brown ale? Pate, little quails eggs, and jugged hare all mixed up in a bucket? But of course.
 And finally, a wafer thin mint.
That's sixteen dollars worth of fake vomit in that bucket. And wafer thin mints. The log was cheap. I already had all the clothes for the Log Lady, which is funny, and a little bit frightening. Red glasses would have been better, but these are all I had.

It is now 7:30 and we've only had one trick or treater. I'm bummed.

The opera was fun-we survived! I guess I'll have to eat all this candy by myself. Maybe not the wafers.
 My log said to, "bugger off"
Well my bucket says "that's a damn fine log you have there."

Happy Halloween!
Would someone please come knock on our door and get this candy out of here?

(Overheard outside the Bang Bang Bar) The folding lawn chair behind you is a nice touch.

I thought Danny was going do something really scary like wear a Donald Trump mask with his tux. I have to say Danny has that very British 'stiff up lip' down pat. Keep calm & vomit on!

They're discussing castration as punishment for rapists (in a public forum format program called 'Big Fight') this AM on the Delhi news - why do I even turn on the tv anymore?

Danny brought along a box of Andes wafers to hand out as he went door to door. Some young woman who also loved the movie launched into, "I'm absolutely stuffed, I couldn't eat another bite" before hugging him and dumping her entire bowl of candy into his bucket. So I guess the movie has fans!

Excellent costumes!

(Though Big Edie and Little Edie are still my favourites.)

Must say that if you were parked on the porch with the log,'s perfectly understandable why you had only one taker for your treats. How charming of Danny to offer those Andes wafers! (This kid's social skills will eventually result in a sweet payoff.)

You're mad. It's why I love you! xxx

Goody said...

Thank you.
The movie poster Danny won in the costume contest is on his bedroom door-so he can remember to be fashionable like Little Edie when getting dressed.

Nah, I waited inside, but they still stayed away. I think the security guards scare the kids off. The condos next to us have warnings about trespassing, and cameras. We don't, but there is a "gated community" vibe extending down the street that I'm really not happy about.

As a hatter. And I love you too ;)
