We had about 60 little ghouls show up; roughly the same as last year. One thing I noticed was that there were a lot fewer 16-year olds with weedy facial hair, wearing crappy last-minute costumes and holding out plastic grocery bags while mumbling, "Trick or treat, whatever." In fact, there were even some fairly young teens who could have totally gotten away with it but who didn't have bags AT ALL taking their little brothers and sisters around by the hand. They were doing it for the love! Awwwwww!

If you are cynically thinking that once they got home they took their little brother or sister's big plastic pumpkin and snarfed all the candy, you are WRONG. Have some faith in America, yo.

Between trips to the door to hand out loot, I watched Italian horror movies on cable and ate mac & cheese for dinner. Jeff was working a Hallowe'en do in some ritzy neighborhood, but get this--the people were rich and Texans, and they were DEMOCRATS. I almost wish I had gone, just to touch them or something and see if my hand went right through them . . .

(Actually, I've met them, and they are nifty people, but it was more funner to pretend I thought they might be apparitions. I'm overexplaining this, aren't I.)

Funniest, and by funniest I mean most tragically stupid, local political ad in these parts: some Rebuplicoid candidate for the state leg. snarling about how the Dem. candidate was one of those PARTISAN LIBERALS who bolted for ARDMORE, OKLAHOMA (like that somehow made it worse?) and wasn't in Texas to DO HIS DUTY. Unlike a certain nonpartisan Republican who used Homeland Security funds to track 'em down out of sheer selfless concern for their safety, yeah, that's the ticket.

Wow! We should've sent candy home with you, since we only had about four groups of 2-4 kids each. Thanks for coming to the party!

> I watched Italian horror movies on cable

I think we were watching the same one(s). There was some succubus, and a wooden priest with '70s hair, and lots of spooky music, and red paint coming out of dead people. Same one?

I gave up and left. Horror movies are bad enough without being completely confusing. LOL

Happy November!

Happy November to you, too!

I saw two, both directed by Mario Bava. One was called "Black Sunday: The Mask of Satan" and it was awesome. Freaky-ass Barbara Steele played a vampiric undead princess hell-bent on wiping out her already rotting family. It was in black and white.

The other movie wasn't nearly as good.
