Happy Halloween!

Since creating my LiveJournal account in March 2002, I've never let a month go by without posting at least once. If I want to maintain that streak, I guess I should get busy. And what better way to commemorate the last day of October than by going trick-or-treating? As it happens, there are ten people on my friends list who live here in the DC area:

Jeez, that was pathetic. What's the matter with you people? Let's see if I do any better with the people I visited in California this past August:

That's better. But I think Rusty gave me back some of the candy I gave her earlier in the day.

I did a little real-life trick-or-treating tonight with my nieces. Hannah was a witch, and Libby was a monster. And their costumes were cute too! Ah ha ha. But of course I am making with the joke. They both hauled in a huge amount of candy just on the street where they live. I think they got more stuff just on one street than I ever did in my entire neighborhood. Plus we had to trick-or-treat through the snow, uphill. I tells ya, kids today have it soft.

I didn't dress up. I had an idea for a quick-n-dirty priest costume, but Selannia pointed out that in this day and age, there was something more than a little bit creepy about a priest trick-or-treating with a couple of little kids.
