Re: Early Halloween Sightings!

Long live candy corn! Stuff is ridiculously good. Only surpassed by those amazing mallow pumpkins you referenced, D. Duck!

We will always play tug of war over this issue, my friend.

Re: Early Halloween Sightings!

Are you from San Diego originally? I've been once. Stayed on Coronado Island and just loved the entire area (as everyone always does). Nah, Ohio originally. Which is why I remember the pain of having to go to school or work the next day after Monday Night Football. I gotcha. Small world, my brother...

Re: Early Halloween Sightings!

Ah, the west coast, I'm always jealous of you fellows when my Halloween night is over, your's is still going strong. #timezoneenvy We also don't have to stay up late to watch Monday Night football. Dude, I can't tell you how many times I've thought of this with envy. Not to mention, on college foot...

Re: Another Halloween wedding

Wow, congrats! Not that I ever did, but I will certainly never underestimate the magical powers of this forum. My girlfriend is an interior designer, and has worked in wedding planning in the past. I'll see if she has any good ideas and pass them along. Once again, congratulations, and have fun with...

Re: Early Halloween Sightings!

Well Nevermore seeing as according to Google(who knows ALL) it is a 40 hour drive(in current traffic conditions) from my town to yours we'll probably pass. Besides there are plenty of places to go ToTing in my town it's just my street is a semi main road and there's only a sidewalk on the opposite ...

Re: I got the Bug

So funny to log on and see this thread bumped to the top. After a sweltering heat wave, the weather has cooled and the humidity has dropped significantly (which is very rare for VA in the summer). I'm just now sitting on my screened porch listening to distant insects as I muse on the fact that July ...

Re: Early Halloween Sightings!

Went to Michael's today to look for Command Strips to hang artwork. Upon departure, I had no Command Strips in my bag, but I found something even better Halloween Window Clings Yes, I became sidetracked, and YES, Michael's is slowly, but surely stocking their shelves with the goodies we're all begin...

Re: Favorite Halloween monster

Old fashioned, cartoon ghosts. You know, the type that look like a floating sheet with circular, dark eyes/mouth commonly accompanied with the sound effect "Booooooooooooo." In that case, I got a gif you should like... http://i.imgur.com/U7SkvrU.gif Haha! That's brilliant, NeverMore. The gif captur...

Re: What was the best decade for Halloween?

I don't want to stray too far from the thread's original topic, but as an adult there is no better day than Saturday, in my opinion, for a Halloween to fall on. There is nothing like the day long build up, the slow, steady march to sundown. There is ample time for preparation and for soaking in the ...

That, along with a scarecrow, seem to symbolize the Holiday's creepiness, while maintaining a fun, whimsical spirit.

Re: What was the best decade for Halloween?

I don't think I have a favorite decade... each one is special for its own reasons. The 60s for me was all trick or treating, and lots and lots of candy. The plastic thin masks that suffocated you, and the way your mother used to make you wear a sweater over your pretty princess costume. The 70s was...

Re: What was the best decade for Halloween?

Random thought alert:

Just to add, those iconic plastic Halloween themed TOT buckets from McDonalds seem to serve as a symbol for the era you and I are referring to. I'd post a pic, but alas, I'm too lazy (but at least I'm honest!)

Re: What was the best decade for Halloween?

While I suspect most will mention the decade in which they grew up, I agree that the 80s-early 90s are hard to beat in terms of Halloween culture. As you say, the movies, the specials, the commercials, the promotions implemented were all magical, and captured what I personally define as the elusive ...

You realize of course, those Cookie Monster cupcakes can be quite fattening.

Re: Summer means Fall will be here in no time!

Ah yes... the old Pinterest fail. There are whole blogs devoted to this phenomenon. http://www.boredpanda.com/funny-pinterest-fails/ Had me rolling until I realized the so-called "fails" are probably of a much higher caliber than I could produce. I will say this though: If I ever, and I mean EVER, ...
