I'm here, it's still early in Ca, only 5:55.  I'm not doing Halloween though, too many scum bags in this town so I'm sitting in my livingroom at the back of the house watching Forever Darling (Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz).

We are in a trick or treat free zone. No kids on the street and our street is sort of funny and off the way...not in a neighborhood. I don't think we've had a trick or treater for ten years. When my children were little, I took them to my sister's house to trick or treat with their cousin. She lived in a happening neighborhood! LOL

We have a pretty kid filled neighborhood.  They all came by.  I gave them each a handful of candy but have a lot left over.   Gee, what to do, what to do???

No knock here either, not like it used to be. I been "just a kindling" SJC. Decisions, decisions, finished the freebie Truth and Consequences and trying to decide what to read next?? Guess I'll start a new book and eat all my Halloween candy I bought.

We also have lots of candy left!  I was IM'ing a friend who wanted to know when she could consider Hallowe'en over so she could start eating the candy.  I told her 8 PM, LOL!

On the west coast so it's almost 6pm (almost dark), only a group of 5 kids at my place.  Though I don't really celebrate halloween...and stopped after the 4th grade.  It's hard when your dad tells you "it's like letting your children to go door-to-door begging for food"...kinda puts a whole new spin on it.  I don't have money for candy this year (bills, rent, gas, etc. tends to come first for me)...sorry.  So I'm in the dark kicking myself in the butt for not having a book light for my Kindle. :D

I actually liked the freebie Perfecting Amanda, but I think I am the only person who did. But if you got that and still have it on your Kindle, it is a fast and easy read. Sort of fun and happy ending.

Sorry Tris but your last statement is hilarious.  ;D Eat Ramen Noodles a few days & get you a light, I've sat in the dark at Halloween before also for the very same reason.

Love the costume Tenix! I tried to have a costume but could never get my avatar to change. ??? We all know I am computer illiterate.

Our town decreed that last night was trick-or-treat night. And it was restricted to the hours of 5:00 pm--7:30 pm. So the kids missed out on a weekend halloween and had to be in early besides.

That's no costume, that's my college yearbook photo.

College yearbook photos make good costumes when you reach a certain age. Where do you think mine came from? ;D

Ok...darn it...Now I'm going to sit here and eat all this extra candy and put on all of the weight that Oprah's lost.

Sorry, I had to...I can't help myself.  I've been on an Oprah kick all week.  I actually don't NOT like the lady; it's just that she's given me so much material to work with this week; I could rent out a stadium and go on for hours at her expense after the infamous Kindle show:

By the way teninx:  Your hat doesn't constitute as a costume; it's a part of your everyday persona; you have to put on a NEW one for it to count as a costume.  I, however, am wearing an INVISIBLE COSTUME:  I am dressed as the witch that I already am.  

I did put on lipstick to answer the door:  maybe, that is what scared all the little kiddies away.

SERIOUSLY:  WHAT GIVES???  Is it the economy, the election, the forum?  I usually get about 100 kids...I got all of 15 and that's giving a couple. I live in an upper middle class rural neighborhood on a cul-de-sac...can't be the traffic...What is going on?  WOW!! have times changed...we trick or treated for hours in several neighborhoods.  We'd go home, change costumes and go out again and re-hit the houses that gave big candy bars...we could open up our own candy store the next day.

I (don't be shocked) am speechless. Why is it like this?  It's sort of freaking me out.  Are things that bad?  

It's that Oprah airing isn't it?...I knew it.  The long-term effects are settling in....aren't they?

I'm glad that you got such a kick out of it Linda. :) Hopefully this new job of mine will quickly remedy my problem, alas not fast enough.

I used to have the old "Itty Bitty Booklight" but my dad the ex-engineer/inventor said that he could make a better more efficent power adapter for it and totally broke it. Think 'Tim Taylor' from the old TV show "Home Improvement" and you can kind of understand my dad...though I know his heart was in the right place...but when we plugged that contraption in...the bulb blew with a strange acrid smell in the air.

My life is like a TV show...literally. I have many witnesses! ;D

Ah, these posts are getting funny by the minute! ;)

Back to the topic of trick-or-treaters, I don't have a lot of kids at my place (everyone are either single or recently married adults)...so I'm thinking by 8 or 9pm I can turn on my lights again and unmute my TV.

Haha ... you should come over here Tris, the front of my house is dark as can be and I'm sitting in my livingroom watching a movie with the surround sound on.  No one can hear a thing outside.

I'm not going to like the time change though.  It's already pitch black at 6:45 so in a few days it'll be pitch black at 5:45, ugh.

Tris;  not so fast, I got you beat; Tim the tool-man...that's small potatoes.  Try Herman Munster meets Lucille Ball.
