    i am with you. i was relieved when working at NMGL that halloween was on a friday so i wasn’t working and didn’t have to dress up! if i were forced to do so it would amount to something superlame like cat ears or some eyeliner-based attempt at something vaguely witchy or gothic. i just don’t have the halloween spirit anymore. ! maybe i used up my quota as a kid? i never did anything quite so AWESOME as those kids you describe, though! MAN! Kudos to Guy In Wind, Lego and Macbook.

    I do love pumpkins. Love pumpkins. The ardour of my youthful halloweeniness may have faded to apathetic curmudgeonliness, but may in fact have shifted over to a love of all things pumpkin-related. I want to buy them every time I pass the bins outside Loblaws or Rabba or Market Fresh or wherever. I want to eat all the pumpkin pie I see. Like E, I want to touch and pat the pumpkins and induce them to be my friends.

    Waiting for the GO bus at Dundurn the other day there was a small child in arms in the bus shelter who was wearing an orange velour costume way too big for her that kept slipping over her face. I’m pretty sure it was supposed to be a pumpkin.
