Day +701: This is Halloween, this is Halloween – Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

“This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It’s our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween”

10/31/12: Happy Halloween Everybody! Too bad we never get trick or treaters here. I could be very frightening this year with the perfect slit throat costume.

We had routine furnace mainenance today, and they sent a new guy. I don’t know what he thought when he saw me but he maintained his cool: “I’ve never seen an A-frame before. I always was curious about them.”

Not much new. Michael returned to work after another week off. I’m managing fine by myself although I am extremely nauseous. I took an Ativan for the first time in quite awhile which pretty much quelled the nausea but also made me terribly drowsy. I keep nodding off in the middle of doing things.

I’m still waiting to hear when I’ll be able to get the drains out. Sandy caused everything to be rescheduled, and they’re still playing catch-up at Hopkins.

Good job on the primary tag line last post but still no guesses for the second. Anyone? Mike K? Guy, good guess on #1 although not correct. Now I can’t get Kung Foo Fighting out of my head. Great song. Robb, it isn’t Time Warp either, although that’s what popped into my mind when Michael first quoted the lines. Dana and Chris have it.

Be safe and enjoy your Halloween!


  1. Michael seems to be a master of the Weird Al Yankovic song book, so I’ll guess him for yesterday’s 2nd tag. Song unknown.

  2. Making Halloween, Danny Elfman, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    I googled it since you thought I should know it. But remember that my Weird Al collection stopped growing a decade or two back, although I still consider buying “It’s all about the Pentiums” once in a while.
