I am debating between going to a party or staying home and getting a movie and a pizza. What are the good folks of Cyburbia doing tonight?

Taking my buds trick or treating for the first time. One is a bee and the other is a cowboy. Will the raltives, neighbors, and my boss. Call it a night after that since it will probably be close to freezing and I'm sure they will not want to stay out.

My father-in-law is coming down to help with some renovations. It's like watching Tim "the tool man" in action. I still haven't totally fixed the plumbing since his last visit. *sigh* This time he's coming down to help rebuild the stairs and railings in the front hallway. Ought to be good for a laugh or two.

We'll all go out for dinner, then hand out treats to the neighbourhood kiddies. Then maybe get down to some work.

Handing out candy, and hoping for more northern lights.

Not sure if I am going to go out, I highly doubt it.

In my area you have to be careful about road blocks and things set on fire.

The fiancee and I are head to San Antonio for the evening. They're doing a 90 minute walking tour of haunted sites in downtown that's supposed to be pretty cool. After that we'll probably eat somewhere downtown, maybe the riverwalk depending on the status of the bank account!

I'm hoping to see some funny little kid costumes tonight! Last year when I was volunteering with the HalloweenFest on campus there was this 18-month-old that the parents had done up like Elvis. Even though he was bald they still drew sideburns on him!

I'm going to put some hair on the cat, eat the candy for the trick or treaters, and then burn some midnight oil.

Elmo's ex is taking the kids out tonight, so we get a night off. Unfortunately the wedding we were supposed to attend was cancelled. So now we have no plans. We are considering going to see a movie, but who knows...

Taking my kids trick-or-treating, which I've done every year of their existence, rain or not. When we're done, I'll confiscate anything with choclate and peanut butter combined. The spouse will be dressed up as a Cheetah at work (guess what she does), so I might take the kids to see her and pull her tail a little. Gonna get me a little tail.

I'm pretty sure the neighourhood kids know to stay far away from old man Cardinal's place.

Don't you live in the middle of nowhere, anyway?

Halloween plans updated:

My Deputy Director just walked by and said I can go home if I wanted. SWEEEET.
Must be because I look so good in my Indiana Jones get-up.

EG - Why LaCrosse WI? Or are you referring to LaCrosse the metaphor? ;)

Me - Like New Years, this is "amateur night". My dress up and party days are things of the past.

I do, of course, have to go to the Old Fat Straight Whit Trash Bowling League TM so a few brewskis are in order.

I friggin hate halloween!!!

Plans? run away from the kids... just have to wait until like 7 pm, when my parents will come and rescue us from imported tradition jalogüin (the word I created to name it here, in spanish, it's pronunciation is quite similar)
Apparently we're safe, cause it's almost 7....

Edit: My mother's maternal instincts get boosted with jalogüin...so I'm stuck here at home hearing them brats come and ask for candy... :-@ Plus, add that the friggin kids can't just ring the bell, but also have to knock and kick the door...
Everybody say it with me: I FRIGGIN HATE KIDS! :) ahh that makes me feel better... (sorry bratty kids... but you deserve my hatred)

No dressing up for me. I dressed up last year and it backfired. I got a mullett wig and a Ryan Neuman NASCAR shirt and went as a mullet-headed NASCAR fan. People at the party loved it until I ran into two guys who worked in a pit crew for a stock car racer and were dressed up in their pit crew outfits. They started asking about if I was a Ryan Neuman fan and to be honest I had no clue who Ryan Neuman was. Then they asked what I was trying to say with my costume. Quite uncomfortable. My girlfriend got a nice laugh out of it.

I am watching my parents dogs this weekend, so it will be low key...drink their beer, watch their big screen tv, eat their food. It will be like I am back in college.

Now I'm breaking the no drinking and posting rule. But I won't go off on everyone on how bad my day was(and it was rotten)

Finished handing out candy(well ran out of candy).

Went to the liquor store, beer and now goofing off on the internet until some friends call at 9:30 to maybe go out.
