beeker

ahh breathing

so Halloween is over. I didn't want to deal with overly elaborate costuming this year, and I figured since I own nearly full ren garb that it would be a quick and simple way to go. Then over two days I spent approximately 12 hours laced into a bodice. And not all that tightly either, just enough to be able to tie things off. Ooofda, next year my costume will be loose and flowy and preferably involve sweats.

Otherwise it was a very quiet day. Klutz was much less Halloween-y than usual which was a bummer - almost no one trick or treating from desk to desk. And a grand total of 6 kids came to my door to trick or treat so I'll be sending candy with my bills to get rid of it now.

Random Halloween question: growing up we had specific trick or treating times - in each town there were designated hours, usually 4 -7pm for claiming your goodies. Different towns and slightly different times, and there were even years they'd try to convince everyone to TorT on a Sunday the 30th, though that never took. There'd always be a few older kids who stragled later, but the whole town went out at the same time. Does this exist anywhere else?

and hello to revelstone, the first person I didn't already know to ever respond to this LJ. (She smiles, only a little freaked that people she doesn't know are actually reading this thing.)
