Halloween weekend

well it's almost here.
what if anything are you and yours doing ?
i have a few crummy decorations for outside,and i will no doubt attach
my warty nose to my green painted face,put on my hat,and funky skirt and scare the
bahoogies out of the local kids. then give them sweeties

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

We do it up big every year with the graveyard, foggers, automated monsters, etc... etc... 4 of us have a wine party with our skeleton goblets while handing out candy.

but we just moved into a new home this year and haven't done up the electrical yet outside so sadly will have to skip it. :(

I'll try to find some pics. from the last few years and post them. We used to go through more than 10 bags of candy and now we'll prolly get 3 kids if we're lucky. Guess we'll just wait and see.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I live so far out in the country that we never have gotten any tricker treaters. I've never actually been tricker treating! Haha

My "Brother" (So he's not actually my brother, but pretty much) is coming to visit me! SO excited.

Well I went on a trip and got back late last night (halloween), and our tree was covered in TP (not the first time)! I can't figure out what it is about my house but we have been TPed, egged, our vehicles have been vandilized. Halloween is definatley not my favorite time of year.

I am usually not such a grump, but you might be to if you had to stay up past midnight cleaning TP out of your center tree.

that stinks. get a camera setup for next year. it's one thing to tp a tree but to vandalize cars is def. not cool. don't blame you for being grumpy about halloween.
