What's the first Halloween costume you remember wearing? Probably Donald Duck. I know my folks still have the rubber mask. I was a sailor (whites) the last couple years of elementary school once I fit into my Dad's uniform.
What was your favourite treat in your goodie bag? Brand name candy bars, preferably Milky Way, Three Musketeers or Mounds.
What's your best Halloween memory? Freezing my *ss off dragging the kids around. Staying up all night sewing a dragon costume for my eldest back in the 80's.
What's your worst? Can't remember. Right Scooter.
Have you ever bobbed for apples? Probably.
Have you ever been to a grownup Halloween party? (costumes, dancing, drinks/dinner -- that sort of thing.) Does SCA count?
If you were going to such a party, and money was no object, what would your ideal costume be? Sherlock Holmes or Barnabas. I like those cloaks.
Ever been to sea, Billy? Oops, wrong quiz! (Obligatory Airplane! reference)
Ever had a paranormal experience? If yes, tell us all about it. Shook hands with a ghost (or something). Must have been 9 or 10. Nobody else as in the room after I got the lights on.
What's your favourite scary movie? Lets do the time warp again. (No that was the play in London.) Nosferatu 1922
Have you ever played a Halloween "trick" on anyone? Nope. I'm boring. I was accused of waxing the school windows once, but I was nowhere near the place.
Did you you carve a pumpkin this year? Sorry no. We are too busy and the teenager doesn't feel like doing it.
Do you think we had more fun at Halloween then kids do today? No. The kids get to go house-to-house in our neighborhood and we get the usual number of "old enough to smoke and shave" children too.
What candy are you giving out tonight? Brand name candy. See above.
Will you be in costume? Yes, I will be dressed as a serial killer. They look just like everyone else.
Decorated at all? Not as much as usual outside. The full Dept 56 display is on top the TV (its worse than Christmas).
