Beggar's Night!
As I mentioned in my previous post, tonight was Beggar's Night. The night when the little buggers beggars show up and ask for candy. Last year I had 33 visitors and had too much candy left over. (My physics class the next day was pleased because they got the leftovers.) I was expecting much the same this year. I encouraged my students to show up, even enticing the seniors with full-sized Snickers bars. And ended up having 80 visitors! Wow!

As I was running out of candy, I called 'round to the folks and mom brought me some of their candy. And yet I still ran out at quarter til 8 (the evening ended at 8pm) so I turned off my lights, another successful beggar's night under my belt. And for once, no extra candy to tempt me - woohoo!

My tradition for Beggar's night has always been to watch my poor 3rd-gen, once converted (or more) copies of Ghoul Lashed, the silly children's series that Sylvester McCoy was in playing the part of The Butler Crud (which is my Halloween costume on IRC, BTW.) Last year I had to give 'em a miss when my VCR decided to eat one of the tapes (which prompted my purchasing a new DVD/VCR combo) and I watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show instead. Tonight I got to watch Sylv gurn outrageously as Crud, however, so my tradition is back on track. :-)

We had Trick or Treat for Unicef at school today - pay a buck and you get to wear a costume. So that's what I did.

Me as the Metric Avenger - note my Blue Suede Shoes!

I hope you folks have fun during your Beggar's Nights (which I hope actually take place on Halloween for you!)

Current Mood: cheerful cheerful

Wow, you are a very experienced pumpkin carver.

Can I be your sidekick by proxy, Metric Avenger? The bespectaled one who sits at the computer and tells you the layout of the evil imperial system base via headpeice? The delerious decimal is at your service!

I envy your gurning viewing. *turns green*

Ta! I love carving pumpkins. And I once bought a thin knife just for the purpose of carving pumpkins. (It's also good for scoring out the bad bits of apples, but I digress.)

Can I be your sidekick by proxy, Metric Avenger?

Yes you may! I welcome you to our team, Delirious Decimal!

I envy your gurning viewing. *turns green*

I need to get a DVD+R for my computer. I really need to convert my poor Ghoul Lashed tapes into something a little sturdier. After the tape eating incident of last year, I realized just how vulnerable my poor tapes were. If'n I ever do this, expect some DVD+Rs to show up on your doorstep. ;-)
