So trunk-or-treat is because parents are afraid of razors in apples or pedobear or whatever, but isn't getting free candy from the back of a vehicle the OG pedobear move?

Being a single, older male, the last time I prepared for trick or treaters, I just gave out quarters. I didn't want any parent to be freaking out about me handing their precious little brats possible toxic treats.

From what I have observed there are certain areas or pre-arranged neighborhoods that people go to. Both for safety and for participating houses. I think I only got a knock once or twice when I lived in an apartment, but even living in a house we didn't get much traffic since we're off the main thoroughfare of the neighborhood and there aren't any sidewalks in our area.

OK, that's some fun costuming. :)

Because I was under the weather yesterday, I didn't do any Halloween-y stuff. But, given the office is still decorated in puked-up-Halloween, I just kicked off my Halloween playlist.

Excellent.

Not as fond of that one as "Vampire Roadtrip", but good find. :)

Oh, and a different song not to sing aloud with at work:



"Stab" by the Pine Box Boys

You're right, I assumed McDowell's Eddie was Semi, but Arsenio had no mustache in the movie.

that's a little too much of a back of the shelf deep cut for this part of rural maryland. also she'd never dress up as a nun.

i could do overly sensitive 70s male professor if i had a sweater. and a copy of iron john. and a pipe. a legit pipe i mean.
