    Good old Halloween, the single greatest day in the entire year.
    What is everybody dressing up as?

    I was originally going to be a pimp, but when I tried on my brand new suit, I just looked like a total creep. Undo the top 2 buttons of my shirt, slap on a gold (looking) chain, and now I look like I'm straight out of the 80s. :rofl:

    I don't understand Halloween, and do not appreciate it as much as others. I guess it is my European roots :P

    Didn't Halloween start in Northern Europe?

    I'm either wearing a Montreal Canadiens jersey or a Yao Ming jersey.

    Creative...eh?

    I don't dress up on Halloween. I usually just watch television and enjoy the unexplainable aura of spookness that seems to occur on October 31st.

    This year I think I might end Halloween in bed with a snack and a book for a few hours.

    Surplus Soviet issued chemical/biohaz. gasmask, white smok with a biohazard symbol thing spraypainted on the back. Simple, cheap, fun for the whole family. Any when I'm done I can wear it to school and run around in the hallways in a panic :)

    I will probably be studying or working.

    I'm not suppose to work, but you know the boss. If I'm working, I'll do nothing and he will learn his lesson.

    I have not celebrated halloween since like 5 years ago. I'll hand out candy of course, and laugh at the little kids. Give the little ones lots of candies, and tell the big ones to get a life. :)

    I'm going all out this year. I have an orange shirt to wear. :rolleyes: It's no fun...I'm stuck at this workshop until noon, then driving the 5 1/2 hours home. But, should still get home in time to give candy to the kiddies...the candy currently being packed with my clothes because I didn't have time to buy any before, but am conveniently next to a grocery store this weekend, so walked over and bought some last night so I won't be the house that gets egged next year!

    If we are going to start asking questions like that, we are going to ask why people waste their time watching TV, playing games, etc...

    Atleast at this time of year, most people step outside the house.

    If you are really interested in knowing why, well I don't know. I don't see why it matters. I was hoping there would be a blackout just so people can see that the sun is up, like last year. Everyone reacted like they have never seen the life outside the house.

    I'm gonna go as a person who has a ton of homework to do because his evil professors assigned massive amounts of labs, projects, and assignments in conjunction with 4 tests in a week, being the kind people they are.

    Well I didn't up getting a chem suit for my costume so I'm just gonna be early 90s guy again.

    Well, I was going to dress up as a period table of elements. I mean, what's scarier than school chasing you around? Anyway, it's kind of raining, so I don't know if I'll do that anymore.
