Happy Halloween
 
Hope everyone has a good halloween tonight. Im just going to do what I do every year. Sit in front of the tv, with Turner Classic movies on and pass out candy. Have to get my pumpkin carved and maybe roast the seeds tonight.

I had surgery last night so we are going to take it easy today, a bit of studying then a movie, eating out for lunch then watching the world series (Go Phillies! My family...at least my Dad's side will disown me if I root for the Yankees).

At halloween I'm always reminded of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. One of my favourite films. :) For the past 10 years or so, it's been my thing to watch this through on Christmas eve... and the Snowman film the day after. I have them both on VHS just incase Channel 4 lets me down :bolian:

I've only ever seen TNBC twice, and it was only a few years ago when I first saw it. The Snowman, however, for me has been a Crimbo fixture ever since it was first shown in Channel 4.





Anyway, as for Halloween plans, I don't really have any plans this year. Will probably stay in and nurse this cough I've been suffering from.

I leave for work in 40 minutes for our busiest night of the year, at least it's not so brass-monkey cold as it was last year. brrr.

I'm going to fly over to Bristol and egg you and then run away screming, "It was a chav, I swear!"

I love roasted pumpkin seeds..yum.

After taking my kids out for Tricks or Treats, I'll be dropping them at their dad's.

Then I will wander over to Tir na nOg for a yummy Guinness and good music...I'll be incognito as a Victorian Lady complete with a lovely feathered mask so if you see me, stop and say hello. :)

I'll be scaring guests at Canada's Wonderland for our annual Halloween Haunt event... I expect we'll be pretty busy tonight... not so much tomorrow (yep, we're still open on the 1st).

Hope everyone has fun tonight with whatever they're doing! :techman:

Happy Halloween, everyone. http://home.comcast.net/%7ERJDiogenes/lolpumpkin.gif

I'll be continuing my Halloween Marathon of books and DVDs. There's also a couple of things on TCM that I want to see.

Love that "Raven" clip. :cool:

Happy Halloween everyone! :)

I'm just making last-minute arrangements for our murder-mystery dinner tonight. I hope I'm not the killer!

A bunch of us are dressing up as characters from Twin Peaks and going to see a band that covers the music from David Lynch productions. In addition, all the bars in the neighborhood are having different events (all with no cover charges!) including a dead celebrity ball, a grateful dead tribute band playing a zombie party, a comic book heroes and villains costume contest, an Edgar Allen Poe interpretor doing the Tell-Tale Heart (unfortunately NOT John Astin this year :() and a haunted hayride to shuttle people between bars.

Though it's not the biggest Halloween celebration in the city, it should be better and less fratty than the others. :techman:

I have CDs of angry Bach organ music playing (with a speaker outside), candles lit, and a talking skull on the porch (we call him Bob). Only seen 6 trick or treaters so far. Stupid HS Volleyball team is playing in the Sectional final tonight, so the town is a bit of a ... wait for it ... GHOST TOWN!

And I'm dressed as Captain Jack Harkness.
