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).

Re: Happy Halloween

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

Re: Happy Halloween

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 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.

Re: Happy Halloween

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!

Happy Halloween, everyone.

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.

Happy Halloween everyone!

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

Re: Happy Halloween

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.

Re: Happy Halloween

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.
