Happy Halloween

This is kind of a special Halloween for me.  Usually I'm off at World Fantasy Convention this time of the year.  I've missed almost all of the past ten Halloweens.  And I would have been at WFC this year (in Calgary) but the spike in fuel prices made the airfare too high, so I'm skipping it.  And that means I get to spend Halloween with my kids.  I'll be taking the younger one trick-or-treating, and Nancy and I will be hosting a sleepover for the older one with her three best friends.  They're all hooked on "Buffy," and we have the complete boxed set.  I'm looking forward to it.

Hope all of you have a great Halloween.

That's one of the reasons (Halloween) I've missed the last few WFC's. Won't have many more trick or treating years - and I don't want to miss them. I'll still have a career and my professional friends when the kids are older.

Have a good one, man.

Glad someone else is missing out on World Fantasy...(not a nice thing to say). We aren't big on trick or treating here but it is growing. There was a real push in shops here for costumes. Last night, Halloween, there was a knock at the door. There were five kids there...Trick or Treat. I went into a real panic and raced to the pantry trying to find something suitable. My daughter laughed her head off at me, because I'd shut the door on the kids. She openned it and did a count. Luckily I found some food bar things...then I said I'm not opening the door again...Next time I'll be at World Fantasy Lol

Halloween has become a metaphor for the entire U.S. economy. Large financial institutions traipsing up to the White House, saying "Trick or Treat," and having gobs of cash dropped in their little plastic pumpkins....

Sounds like fun! I kinda miss the trick-or-treating. The Beetle gave it up the year he was in seventh grade, and since we live out in the country, we've never had a single trick-or-treater ring the bell. I've got dinner started, and I think we're going to turn out the lights and enjoy a double-feature of The Skeleton Key and Shaun of the Dead.

Happy Halloween!
