Out of the Blue

Talk about well prepared, MrsBlue and I made a foray this weekend to prepare for Halloween, and we now have over 400 mini-sized candy bars stockpiled to hand out to all the little sugar-fuelled maniacs that will come to our door at the end of the month. Two rules-of-thumb I came up with after last year are 1) to make sure you have more than enough candy to hand out, and 2) to make sure it's something you like yourself for when there are left-overs (so you can expect me to be a sugar-fuelled maniac myself come November 1). Now the only thing left to do is to get the claymore mines to set out in front of the cars so we don't have a repeat of last year's shaving cream incidents, and preparations will be complete. MrsBlue has suggested we join those really indulgent homeowners and dress in costumes of our own to greet the kids, but I really do think the claymores will be scarier than a Dracula costume would ever be. Boo!

What a list of birthdays MoB Chris Morris sent along for today! Sting is 50, 80s pop icon Tiffany is 30(!), Sopranos shrink Lorraine Bracco is 47, and some classics: Walter Matthau would have been 81, George "Spanky" McFarland would be 73, and Bud Abbott would have been 106.

If I bought my Halloween candy now I'd just have to buy it again on Halloween night because it wouldn't make it to Oct. 15th.

This would've been Groucho Marx's birthday too.

The furbeowulf link is a repeat from a couple of months ago!

Ack, you're right -- I thought it was along the same lines as, but different to, that previous link.

Give the sugar intake a rest!

Me? Oookay.

That Ebay auction -was- on Ebay until it was removed.
My friend also made a mirror of it, almost immediately
before it was removed:

Eggs on the car/front side of the house are much more likely in our area Blue.
I dunno which town exactly you're in but if its at all residential (ie. not White Plains), look out!

Also, taking people's pumpkins and rolling them down long/steep hills is popular too.

Welcome to the sticks!
