I had a very fun Halloween! In the morning I wrote a review of "Family", knowing that I had to get it done before I could start celebrating. Then perkypaduan and gblvr came over, and we went out to Momo Taro to get sushi. Then we came back to my house to eat it and watch Doctor Who and Torchwood -- "Blink" and "Something Borrowed," which gblvr elected as the most appropriate Halloween episodes. Then they both departed for various events of their own, and I swept the front porch and put up decorations and brought the jack-o-lanters outside. I felt gratified when the young daughter of my next-door neighbors, who moved to the U.S. from China only a couple of years ago, said, "Obama!"

The total loot is appalling...dozens and dozens of Milky Ways, Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Kit-Kats, Hershey, Nestle Crunch, Butterfinger, Three Musketeers, M&Ms, and my personal favorite, Almond Joy, plus lots of Smarties, Sweet Tarts, hard candies, and a few pretzels, graham crackers and the like. And there's no school for four days to get rid of it. Aigh! apaulled took the kids to my parents' so they could see their costumes, then we all watched Crusoe together, which I am still really enjoying. Collapse )
