And BTW, I am sooo excited, as Grumpy has Columbus day off, which means when they ask him to work on Saturday, he can tell them to fuck off, because it would mean that he wouldn't get overtime (which I don't understand but whatever), so anyway, he can finish painting the Halloween fence and glue on all the little skulls I ordered. Also, he can hang the lights and set up the graveyard. I mean, really! People have been asking me why we aren't set up yet! Used to be, by the beginning of September, I'd be putting out some Halloween stuff. This year, I feel like such a slacker.

I say there should be adult trick & treating and baby bourbon bottles should replace the candy.

If you trick or treat at my house, you're welcome to share whatever I'm embibing, usually Jamesons. I used to make a thermos of Irish coffee to take around when Halloweening with the kids. There are a *lot* of drunks in this neighborhood.

My family will eat all the candy when I buy it early. Issue is, I hate to run out. So I buy a few bags each time I go to the store all month long. Hide some of it but they find it so I bought a sale bag of individually wrapped candy corn taffy. Nobody likes that but its wrapped and takes a lot of room in the bowl so they are leaving it alone. I'm still buying the good stuff to be handed out in the early evening, saving the candycorn taffy for the teenagers who can't be bothered to actually dress up, just show up with a pillowcase and an attitude.

Fuck your dentist slacker/ette, here's some shit you'll think is good when you're all stoned out.

It's like I wrote this post! We had ants, and I mentioned to Grumpy that I had to throw the bags of Halloween candy onto the porch and then put it away, and his only reaction was "So where is it?" Damn. Every year, he eats half the candy before we can give it out. This year, I've hidden away the good chocolate stuff, and I tell Himself that I can't remember where I hid the rest of it.. His attention span is short, so this works. Also, this year, I am going to be a cranky bitch, and give doggy biscuits to the middle-aged couples who trick or treat with their hound, and baby teething biscuits to the fat mamas who trick or treat with their adorable infant. I mean, the doggies and the babies should have a treat they will enjoy. If their parents want candy, they can buy some or whatever.

I am always conveniently not at home on Halloween. Thrift store, shit-show costume fades into my eventual stupor.

I have been officially shamed, this Halloween season. My next door neighbor asked me, "Where is your Halloween display?" It is October already, but we have nothing but a door wreath up. I had such a wonderful plan for this year, but Grumpy works so much overtime, that it was only until today that he actually painted the fence pieces he maide. Tomorrow, and this long weekend, we will glue the skulls to the fence posts, and Grumpy will hang the black lights, and set up the graveyard, and so forth.
