So, getting into the... er, festive? spirit... what're y'all planning for Halloween?
Any awesome costumes in the making?
Going trick or treating, or are you too old for that now? ;P
Throwing/ attending any parties?

Personally, I'm just having a quiet night with family and a couple of friends, but later in the week me and a group of friends are having a horror movie all nighter, so that should be some crack =] And speaking of horror movies, anyone seen Paranormal Activity 2 yet?
Not going have a chance to dress up this year, I'm not cool enough to be invited to any parties and my parents won't let me hold one *cries*

Anyways, let's talk Halloween-ness =D

And also, I was thinking about having a Halloween short story writing competition? Any takers? Didn't want to post in the contests section until I knew if people would actually be interested or not.

I've been invited to a couple of Halloween parties but none have appealed to be so far. There's something about standing around in a cold, dark field that I just don't like.

EDIT: Also the Halloween competition idea is nice. MAKE IT DONE.

Nice, reminds me of the old days when we used to go out with my younger cousins... But then I moved out to the country and the only neighbours we have would probably set their dogs on us if we so much as touched the gates xD

Halloween parties in a field?
That's something I've never heard of before...

And I shall indeed, I'm glad you like it

Going to a Halloween party that isn't on Halloween.

Then going to a bar on actual Halloween night.

Doing the usual at both.

I'll be on a class trip on Halloween~
I'm not sure whether to even buy a costume. I'd be the Cheshire cat, of course XD.

One, Halloween Comp is awesome idea. Do it. Now.

Two, I'll be watching Hole: 3D with my family on Halloween. I voted for Nightmare on Elm Street, but my mum said it's to scary for my little bro and sis. (11) Being scared out of their tiny little minds will do them good in opinion.
No parties, no trick or treating. No trick or treating in Hungary I'm afraid. Might dress up though.

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween.

*Scary music starts*

Ah Halloween, where you can scare people without going to court.

Unlike me.
