I'm going out with my kids and a few fellow geeks from my RPG group to do some marauding along the edge of the woodlot near my home. Actually we're really doing flashlight patrol because the streets are fairly dark there and teens are fond of setting off fireworks in that area and on occasion starting fires. 

After the Halloween livery has calmed down and I've made enough of a fool of myself,  I'm hoping to get in a hour or so of The Secret World. I just got to a very scary location in the game and I'm thinking it should be a nice, frightful cap off to the evening.  paranoid ninja Torches and Happiness!slywink

There's no big snowstorm or hurricane this year, so that's something.

I'll be home giving out the candy while the wife takes my daughter and friend door to door.  After the dingdonging, my daughter has requested that I take her to a friend's haunted house, which I'm kind of excited about.  We'll see if she actually makes it to the door.

After being Hermione for the last few years, my wife convinced my kid to be a flapper (she had some accessories from a Gatsby themed business evening).  Just recently, my daughter has asked if she could be a zombie flapper instead!  Hooray!  Of course, she has since asked if she could be a wizard zombie flapper ("I'd just take my wand with me")...

Anyway, all-told, it should be a fun evening.

As always, I will be hunkered down in my office with the rest of the house all dark. The bag of candy that I bought "just in case" will go to work with my wife after we get the traditional 0 costumed beggars.

We've fallen into a tradition of going out to the local Unos on Thursday nights after she gets back from teaching her evening class. She has a late dinner while I have a beer and keep her company. We were afraid that we might have to cancel it this week due to baseball fans mobbing the bar, but fortunately the World Series ended last night.

I will be home handing out candy tonight while watching the football game and trying to get some Assassins' Creed 2 in. I doubt we will get to many kids anyway. My kids are to old to TNT so I may get the 20 year old to hand out the candy for me. Yeah, right.

First year for our 6 year old trick or treating in our new neighborhood, and good lord people go overboard... full sized candy bars and huge handfuls of fun size... we went basically a block each way from hour house and his pumpkin was full.  Lots of retirees who like kids, I guess.  Or predators?

Anyway, he was quite happy with this in spite of the 28 degree temperature and 20mph wind.

Halloween successfully avoided. There were a couple of girls with weird makeup in the bar, but they left early. Normality achieved.

For the past 5 years, we've had between 150-200 costumed beggars.  Last night we barely broke 60.  Not sure what changed...maybe people found better neighborhoods to drop off their busloads of kids.

For the last six years, I've been in an upstairs apartment inside a gated community. There's been absolutely no danger of a knock at the door.
