Happy Hallowe'en

I love this time of year. Spooky stuff on the television (who's watching Dead Set on E4?) and pumpkins and silly things like LiveJournal renaming itself UndeadJournal just for the holidays. I'm organising a party tonight for seven year olds, with skeleton straws and cocktail sausages on bat sticks and tomato ketchup with a new label "Blood". Costumes have been bought, and party bags with spider pens and monster bookmarks. Let the celebrations begin!

Sounds like tremendous fun!

It was, but exhausting. I'm still recovering. How was it round your way?

It was surprisingly quiet actually. Only had one trick or treat visit all evening. And no spider pens or monster bookmarks in sight, which was sad.

I tried to buy Fortune Fish for the party. Who remembers those? Little acetate fish that reacted to the heat in your hand and told fortunes along the lines of:

Turns right over = Passionate
Unmoving = Dead One
