Potential party. Defiantly getting a bag of candy from the store.
Why that's just crazy enough to walrus!

I'm going to do a mix of handing out candy and scaring the greenies, and going to get some of the sweet stuff myself. I love taffy and caramels, that stuff is GOOD.
Been years since I was here. I've been at rehab since. So uh. Yknow, things got interesting.

You know how in every group of friends, coworkers, etc. there's that one guy who is just too busy or whatever to bother even realizing it's a holiday?

I'm going to be going as that guy for Halloween.

Not sure yet, but I've gotten a ton of offers of something to do ranging from a haunted prison to someone's backyard maze.

Halloween's an odd time of year for me. Everyone else starts tuning in to my normal wavelength for a few weeks, and I get to be more open about it while getting a bit of a nostalgia-fueled energy boost.

This year I'm probably going to celebrate a little early since there are a couple of horror movie screenings on the 29th-30th. I might carve a pumpkin or two, we'll see. It's a pretty busy time of year for me, but I do have more free time since two of my project deadlines got extended.

Id say the maze would be the better idea of the two.



________________________________________________________________________________

I too am stuck with a decision.
Either go to the pub with friends and dress as a generic halloween thing

or

go out to the lakes with my girlfriend to see the fire work display

Boring crap.

I kinda miss trick or treating. Might actually skip those two things to take my little brother around the doors.

I'm going trick or treating as a delivery driver, but instead of candy I expect tips.
RAGE!

Considering my gf will be with me, I'm inclined to agree. That said, it's not a corn maze or anything so I have a hard time imagining it'll occupy enough of my time for long.

Also considering heading deep south in Jersey for a party for Rock Band 3. Just a helluva commute back.

Seeing as this time around I'm located near a suburban area, I'll try my hand at trick or treating instead of the usual partying.

The nice thing is, I don't really need to plan a costume. I figure someone over the age of twenty with a decent beard going door to door alone is scary enough.

Not so much different from here. Of course if you where going to the shop to get lollies you'd end up only getting lollies. Not sure if you Aussies use it a cover term for sweets.

Not sure, plans are still drifting, but I'm sure I'll be handing out candy for a couple of hours.

Yes. And trick-or-treaters who arrive at our door without a costume, especially above the age of 10 or so, must perform (provide a trick) if they want a treat. We've seen some great stuff in past years (we give out pretty good candy). This year I'd really like to get a paper waiver to have them sign so I can tape and youtube.
So come on over B, let's see what you got.

Yep! It means “sweets” :)

And yeah, you could drop the “bag” part and it would still make perfect sense here.

Twinned countries!

I have to work =( Maybe I'll wear a costume, but I'm still trying to think of ones that follow the dress code and won't get caught in a machine.

The only people I know in the town I live in are going other places for Halloween. So I will probably just sit in my dorm room alone all day :/.
Watching Evil Dead will probably be the only Halloweeny thing I do.
Meh

A trick you say?! Well, let's see…the best I have is probably an ill attempt at singing a high vocal ranged song. For me it sounds alright, but for you it would easily be confused with a blood-curdling scream in which you will commend me for an accurate impersonation of Janet Leigh from that one movie.

The real tricky part of course, is making the journey all the way to your neighborhood. In which case teleportation could be that “trick.” ;)

I will probably actually go trick or treating in my wiener* costume and then go to my friend's for his yearly party that I only started going to last year because I used to go over my other friend's house and play Super Smash Bros but then he got a butt head like about it so he wouldn't dress up anymore so my new plan is much more fun.

I will most definitely be doing something inappropriate in my wiener costume.



*Wiener means more than penis people. It can also mean hot dog. But let's use the more giggly term, shall I?

I'll be on a cruise on Royal Carribbean Lines for my wife's fiftieth birthday. She's frantic about what to wear but I'm sure we'll figure out something. But no pirates. Absolutely no pirates.

I'll probably be recovering from the London MCM expo that weekend.
I bought wigs and a cheap pair of goggles you can't even use as goggles to try and be a steampunk zombie but that's probably just a pipe dream and I'll just have to be a regular zombie in a wig (One of them didn't even fit my massive Pullip-style head).

Liverpool is crap for Halloween. I guess I was too used to the Scottish obsession for the day in which going out, scaring people and causing general mayhem is REQUIRED!

I haven't gone trick or treating since I was 17. I would take it up again but even kids don't do it very much down here. They're scared they'll get their clothes dirty. Can you believe it?

Call that jumped up metal rod a knife?
Watch mine go straight through a kevlar table, and if it dunt do the same to a certain gaixan's skull in my immediate vicinity after, I GET A F*****G REFUND! BUKKO, AH?!

I think it would be a hit if you dressed up with an assault rifle, dirty shirt and khat-stained teeth.

What do you mean “dressed up”.





Does Bravo ever leave the house any other way?

Technically, I'm not really doing anything for Halloween because I'm in a drama production all that week. However, that means I'll be running around in a costume all night (a demon, no less!) so I guess it's really no different than what I'd be doing if I were “free” on Halloween.

Oh shit… I just remembered something worse…

My sigmoidoscopy will be on the 1st of November. And I'm supposed to start taking the stuff to clear my system out the night before.

So this Halloween I'll be exhausted from a long trip to London, I'll be having my last meal for at least 24 hours when everybody else has sweets and junk and I'll be literally pissing Lucozade out of my ARSE!

This warrants a sad face in an obscenely high font size.

No pirates, not even Somalis. -_-

And I always try to have a clean shirt on when I leave the house though I make no gurantees if I have any kind of sauce or condiment with any previous meal. ;)

We're dressing as Elizabethan nobility. I have that annoyingly classic English family name that sounds so cool announced as Lord and Lady.

I generally in the past had my kids draw faces on a sheet of paper and then help them carve their design into the pumpkin. I'll still have to do that with my son, as he's still only five. And then I carve some cool pumpkins of my own design.

This year I'll be doing a Grover pumpkin and maybe a lego minifig pumpkin in addition to helping the kids with theirs.

Then we go out trick or treating and later I hear about how many people liked my carvings. Last year I did the Penguins of Madagascar in their “Charlies Angels” stance that they do because my kids like that show. One year while working at a company with a detailed logo, I carved that and took it to work.
