Notice the Little Witch is not happy beside the Zombie? Posted by Hello

Not only is she not happy, she didn't even want her picture taken with me. Other than being scared to death of her mother, she had a wonderful time and I have been sorting through candy all morning. Chips, Doritos and Cheezies in one pile, chocolate gum and candy in another and easily unwrapped candies into the garbage. I am a freak when it comes to checking the candy. They are not allowed to eat anything til I have given it a thorough Nazi type examination. Anything that could be tampered with is pitched. Needless to say, there are at least 3 grocery bags full of candy/junk food. My kids are going to be hopped up on sugar til Christmas.

Had a great time scaring the kids and a couple were kinda too scared to come to the door so the mother had to come up the stairs with them. (If the children are very young I smile and let them know I'm just fooling) but the older ones seem to get quite the kick out of it.

We were all finished by nine, just in time for "Desperate (Dirty?) Housewives". Jeez, I swore I wouldn't get involved with another "soapy" type show after my broken love affair with "Knots Landing" but somehow they pulled me back in. I am loathe to admit I am hooked. Yes, me, the PBS-a-holic, sucked in by cheap and tawdry parlour tricks (come on, who leaves their MIL to get lifted for shoplifting so you can go screw your gardener? Okay we've all thought about it but who actually DOES it?) I am so disappointed in myself.

And today is my Birthday! *applause* I have some tidying up to do, desperately need a Silkwood shower to rid myself of remaining makeup then on to the couch for tea and knitting. Am two stripes into the Harry Potter scarf for DN2. Will post pics when done.

Knit On and Have a Greaaat Day!

Happy Belated Birthday! It's always good to be cautious, but you do know that the razor blade in the apple story never actually happened. The only candy poisoning documented was from caregivers - now that's scary! Speaking of hooked on shows, I confess to never missing the Gilmore Girls.
