Halloween Live Blog

Okay! The jack o’lanterns are lit, making a path from the top of the stairs to my apt door. Spooky lights are lit. Dracula is on the Netflix, but it won’t load because I can’t imagine why a horror classic would be slow to load on Halloween seriously can’t imagine.

I also have a candy bowl with four Butterfingers, four Snickers, four Nestle’s Crunches, and four (meh) Milky Ways.

There is also a cold beer in the fridge, waiting for my kind attention.

I’m going to live blog the number of kids who come, what treats they take, and what costumes they have. Assuming any show up at all.

Fingers crossed.

Anyway, movie’s playing. I always liked swapping out Renfield for Harker at the start of Lugosi’s Dracula. It simplifies things.

6:28: HOORAY! A tiny little girl dressed as “a rabid raccoon” selected a Crunch candy bar. One kid, at least, has come by.

7:00: No other kids have come by.

7:39: No other kids. Should I just give up? Shut out the light and stuff the candy into the freezer?

7:59: Seriously considering the freezer now.

9:49: Shit.

People in LA were getting dozens. I'm filled with envy.

Yeah. I'm in the greater L.A. area and had over 70 (I'm not sure exactly, I think a couple of kids came by twice).

We had a pair of brothers, and that's it. After my son spent all afternoon decorating in front and back.

I moved from a more rural poorly lighted road with vertical driveways of 100' - 150' to the houses. To a side court in the middle of town with a bunch of 4 plexes... I was shocked to get no trick or treaters..... I mean its a nice quiet safe complex right smack in the middle of town near several other quiet multiplex units. Yet I had the same number of people come by as used to come by the rural location.

You should have cut your losses and have the fist kid all the candy.
