Trick or Treat... or Not

At my old apartment complex, Halloween was something of an actual event. I'd buy a bunch of candy, and swarms of cute, custumed little kids would come by to claim it. I enjoy loading kids down with sweets, so this arrangement worked out pretty well.

Last year was my first year at the current complex, and I assumed things would be much the same. Instead, nobody came calling; come the next Monday I was begging coworkers to take candy off of my hands. So this year I didn't buy any candy. Naturally, around 6:00 PM a couple of kids came 'round. I felt bad about not having any goodies for them, but nobody else came by all night. I guess my decision not to pick up any candy was the right one.

Last year, I had to work on Halloween, but this year, I stayed home in anticipation of kiddies to give chocolate to, but not a one showed up! I brought my excess candy in to work and dumped it in the candy basket, hoping to get rid of it, but I ate a bunch of it today. *sigh*

Also, my links seem to have jumped ahead of Matt's... Weird. They should really just come in time order... Oh, well. At least they actually get posted with this version of Firefox.
