    Hiding out for Halloween...

    OK am I the only one who does this? Don't want to be home tonight to deal with all the little halloweeners. Yes the costumes are cute. Yes I know Halloween is suppose to be fun but for this old lady, well it's annoying.

    Anyone else feel the same way? If so...

    Meet you at Edwards Irvine Marketplace - going to see The Prestige at 3:50 and what ever I can sneek into later. Hopefully there won't be any little kids running around or jammering in the theater!!!

    Bah Humbug I say!

    I'll be passing out LOTS AND LOTS of candy. I put up all the cool decorations around the apartment saturday afternoon. I have about $40 worth of snikers, twix, and other yummy chocolates goodies to give out.

    Like I mentioned in another thread, I live near the top of a very steep hill so we rarely see any trick-or-treaters on our street.....which is a good thing for us as well...

    Well...my biggest problem has always been the 16-, 17-, and 18-year olds trying to pass themselves off.

    I live on a hilltop and the little buggers don't seem motivated enough by a few candy bars to make the hike uphill. Lucky me!

    I just moved into an apartment and am wondering if we'll get many visitors or if I'll get fat BEFORE Thanksgiving. I've been in costume all day already, though, since I work at a middle school. You can tell the veteran teachers, they don't dress up. Young forever!!!

    Our house borders a commercial zone. I buy candy every year but we've never had a trick or treater.

    The candy tastes good though.

    I've got about 2 cu ft (~60 lbs of sugar) of candy, crayons, slinky's, etc. My wife, daughters, and I will be giving the stuff away in heaping handfulls to every ghost, goblin, princess, pirate, and parent that shows up at our door. That is up until 9:00 PM, when the girls go to bed and the lights go out.

    I live in a gated apartment community with lots of kids. I leave the lights on and always have a big bowl of candy, but no one ever knocks.

    Tonight I am going to turn on some creepy, dark, gothic music and put in the original silent vampire movie, 'Nosferatu'.

    It's our first year in this apartment complex. More then 1/2 of the complex has halloween lights, multiple pumpkins and other decor so I would ASSUME they get alot of foot traffic. But I also bought the better stuff, cuz if there's left overs....I know who has to eat it. We pulled the candy bagS out last night to get everything ready so I can just go home and be set. we had two full bags stuffed w/ those fun packs. Think I counted something like 16 bags of chocolate

    Instead of buying Halloween candy for our businesses, I ordered cycling shorts and a pair of socks for myself this morning!

    My house is actually haunted (I was describing it to someone once and she asked "do you live on the haunted hill?") and on a steep street without sidewalks or streetlights. It would actually be great for a halloween party, but I'm too lazy and antisocial to ever bother. There aren't many kids in the neighborhood either, or enough houses within a short walk to make it good for trick or treating.

    Where I grew up was flat with standard city blocks with lots of houses close together and you could cover a lot of distance and get tons of candy. The best was going trick or treating with a kid who was allergic to chocolate...

    I actually live in a neighborhood that goes all out for Halloween. The homes nearby are totally decorated. Usually lots of kids roaming around... OK fine you all sit home and give out candy. I'll tell you about the movie later!

    I totally agree with you Pam! Well, except that I have to work and can't get out to see a movie or anything.

    Re: Halloween, Hey kids, we will turn the lights off for you, so don't bother knocking (and we don't have a door-bell)!

    Best Regs,

    I don't mind giving candy away to the "kids", but when I get a bunch of [Edit: rude] teens I want to act out something from a horror movie with them, except for real.

    You can get inspiration on what to do with the teens from the popular movies Se7en and Saw... just trying to help

    That's nothing. I have 308 of them to contend with tomorrow. At least they all go away at 2:45 though.
