grass revisited...


grass by the creek...

the cbc a.k.a. "apocalypse now"

gomery part one is coming out tomorrow. times like this i wish the CBC lockout was still in effect.

i was watching HNIC part deux this last saturday. i can see now why the CBC fired chris "world's biggest oilers fan" cuthbert's ass during the lockout. jim hughson's amazing.

halloween 2005 redux

halloween was ok.

i gave the kids (LG and LB) some sage advice during the pre-trick or treating pep talk: 1) use a pillowcase for higher capacity 2) wear streamlined costumes for maximum dexterity 3) hit high density housing (e.g. townhouses) 4) if you can, empty your treat bag once in a while for higher "donations" 5) run 6) push your way to the front 7) if you can, do not embellish the customary scream of "trick or treat" with the line about smelling one's feet...

the kids started at 6 and came back at 7. pfft... i sent them back out. way too early to quit.

best costume at the door was a solitary spongebob square pants. too bad it violated rule #2 - see above. poor kid needed the assistance of a parental unit.

i was looking forward to kids bringing back cans of soda pop (yes, people give out cans of pop) and candied apples for their beleaguered uncle. nodda. people are getting pretty chintzy.

my nephew (LB) was collecting for unicef. he brought back $1.53. what is wrong with this picture?

i had only one kid come to the door with a unicef box. the kid forgot to mention it. doh.

nearly ran out of candy.

kids know exactly what you give them and how much.

looking forward to halloween 2006.

I'm a big believer in emptying out the bag. Then you can look like Oliver Twist "please sir could I have some candy"

soapydave, for a second there i thought you wrote "Extorting Funds" as in "give me UNICEF money or you'll never see your goldfish ever again..."
