8:00 All done. Lights out. Street is pretty dark already. Anybody want some candy?
7:45 Two young men sans costumes, from Cheney food drive, collecting canned food instead of treats. Gave them some tuna and condensed milk. They may not want to use it together. They also knew what a portal was.
7:30 Another half hour and I can turn off all the lights and go hide downstairs.
7:27 Large round mother cat with small round daughter cat. Unloaded lots of candy on them.
7:20 Bouncing ‘twixt door and blog and email.
7:15 All’s quiet on the Cheney front. No knoc….small child with proud father, both as pirates. Kid has no concept of modern business practice.
6:50 Whole family of ninjas, including Darth Ninja, who promptly attempted to break his kneecap on my porch steps. Had no idea what a portal was.
6:40 four young angel/dark angel/ ghosts. They knew what a Portal was. Gave them extra candy.
6:30 All’s quiet. Back to reading my netbook in the foyer.
6:22 one young man who looked like he’d come home from school (jeans, anorak, flannel shirt), put on a regimental tie, and went back out. Claims to be dressed as a businessman. Told him I teach in a B’ school and we’d throw him out. He pointed at my Portal cake sign, and said it was a lie, and left.
6:00 four teen girls, dressed as Maid Sama, and a cat and as someone smuggling coconuts in her mumu. The signs confused them. They took the garage door hula hoop and put it on the porch. They liked my Velma t-shirt, so I gave them extra candy.
5:30 I am handling all the largesse tonight, since MJ is off dogging it.
5:00 Put up the outer decorations — some Portal 2 signs, and some blue and red hula hoops. Portal 2 “cake” sign on door, “terminal velocity” sign on porch, “change direction” sign on garage, with blue hula hoop.
NOTE: All Portal signs stolen from Deviant Art, and were made by toadking07.
