Halloween

I'm tired. It was frantic day at work. We were very decorated and there were some fantastic areas and costumes. The best was the Egyptian one. My are was Salem and we were fairly low key but it was fun and we got lots of compliments. There was a constant stream of people through and all the noise and bustle was tiring especially since I had so much to do and was constantly interrupted. It was fun, but tiring.

There's been a constant stream of kids this evening. I'm practically out of candy which is good. Last year I had so much left and ended up eating it myself. They seem to have stopped now since it's getting too late for the little kids and the bigger kids are probably checking out their haul. They are so cute but most of them didn't even have costumes and the ones that did, sort of, only had a scarf or a bit of face paint. It's just not like it used to be. Well, it never was for my kids since I wasn't that good at making costumes, but they still looked more costumed than most of the kids that came by tonight.

Tomorrow is Lisa's birthday and the next day is my birthday and I feel like I should do something to celebrate but it's sad to elebrate by oneself. I think I'll take myself out to eat but I feel a little lonely.

I just flipped channels and they are showing the Village Halloween Parade. I remember when Lisa and I saw that. It was so cool. It was very crowded and I couldn't see that much but it was fun. They are showing how the huge puppets are made and worked. It's very interesting and it looks like they are enjoying themselves. I haven't thought about the parade in a long time and it was nice to be reminded. I really need to live in a place with decent street life that takes it's transit seriously.

Cat has not been happy about all these people coming to our door. She's taken up residence under the sink and everytime she things about coming out, there's a knock on the door. Well, I'll let her stick her nose out tomorrow while I'm getting ready for work since I won't have to worry about her being snatched. I'm not sure how prevalent this really is or if it's an urban legend, but I don't figure it hurts to keep her inside for a couple days.
