Happy Halloween

Here it is, my favorite day of the year, and what am I doing?

Nothing.

Well, not actually nothing. But nothing that has to do with the holiday. I am finishing up a class project. We have class tonight, and it's one of those deadline days where you're supposed to show a finished project and show your sketches and such that you worked on first. So even if I were in a position to skip class tonight, I still wouldn't get to skip class tonight.

Not that there's really any reason to skip class tonight. I don't want to go to the Boneyard bad enough to spend twenty bucks and go by myself.

And I won't be giving out candy tonight either. There are too many old people in the neighborhood to bother with buying candy for trick-or-treaters. One year I made the effort, and got maybe four kids to stop by.

I don't even have a pumpkin carved yet. I need the pumpkin for an art project, and if I carve the pumpkin it will rot before I can finish the project. So no jack-o-lantern.

And of course I can't wear a costume to class, cause I'd get clay all over it.

Anyway, it all sucks.

About the only thing I get to do today is go look at the stores and see where I want to go tomorrow for the after holiday sales. Not that I get to spend that much. I only have about fifty dollars left this week, and I'll need to spend half of that on gas.

Okay. Enough whining. Back to work on the dragon.

Well this sucks. You've been talking about Halloween for so long and now it's here and you don't even get to do anything you'd really like to do. Bummer.

We stayed at home. I did see swarms of kids in some neighborhoods I passed through in the evening.

Did get the pumpkin carved: it's in my blog. There are two more pumpkins, and we will do those tomorrow.

Halloween store sales? Good idea.

I love Halloween, but it's also nice when it's over. We can move to the next holiday craziness. I didn't do much either, besides wash all of my makeup off from wearing my costume to work and relaxing with a pizza and wine. I went to bed at about 10:30.

Dragons sound more fun anyway!

I ate a toffee apple, then went out for a broomstick ride with Buster :)

If you have similar problems with cruel teenagers like we do here, I hope Buster is staying indoors for a while.
