  • Susan is the Wicked Witch of the East today. Everyone at work dressed up for Halloween. Nobody did at my office.
  • Sarah says Happy Halloween Eve! Would that be Halloweeneen?
  • Amy says it's back, both kids are down with the fever.
  • Greg says Happy "pretend to be someone else at work today cause some fool put Halloween on a weekend" day!
  • Martha is going shopping.
  • Cherie passes on a cheerful Friday fact: bunnies crave bananas.
  • Nikki tie-dyed 3 shirts for school spirit days. I didn't know you were a hippy...
  • Tammy is having another day in paradise. Indeed, it is 5 o'clock somewhere.
  • Ed is hoping his Ducks beat USC.
  • Emily gets to go out for the first time in 15 months. Who is watching the baby? How many times did you call to "check in"?
  • Bryan is ready for a weekend of football and Halloween parties. I'm ready for a weekend of football and brewing.
  • Paul: WOOOHOOO!
  • Lots of people doing the one-word thing.
  • Lauren says have a BOOOOOOtiful Halloween.
  • Tracy: Why do programmers get and Halloween and Christmas confused? Because Oct 31 = Dec 25. Oof... bad geek humor!
  • Rebecca still has to go buy Halloween candy. I'm not buying any, no one comes to our house.
  • Candace: sigh.
  • Chris finally got a costume together for Halloween. You could have re-ran Mario.
  • Candace made herself laugh. I guess it's good to get those sighs out.
  • Ellen says if she was going to a Halloween party she'd go in her footy PJs and pigtails.
  • Lynde says don't frown because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
  • In response to Cherie's question: chocolate.
  • Ed reminds everyone that we switch to standard time this weekend. Reminds me of this: 'When told the reason for daylight saving time, the Old Indian said, "Only the Government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket."'
  • Sarah is a grouch today. Seems to run in the female side of the family today. What phase is the moon in?
  • Carin is doing grades on a Friday night. Fun times.
  • Pam says "Type your Facebook status here" First. Time. Ever. No. Caps.
  • Paul compensates: "NICE SHOOT OUT WIN FOR THE PENS!!!" Shoot outs are lame, but good for the Pens!
  • Ken says it's been a very very long day, time to get this weekend started with a cold beer. I'm sipping a most excellent porter while writing this.
  • Tracey asks what rock costumes will rule this Halloween -- Lady Ga-Ga, Amy Winehouse, or Michael Jackson. Really? Are any of those rock?
  • Keoni can't wait for tomorrow!
  • Lisa is surprised to find herself considering seeing the MJ movie. Oddly compelling? Not for me.
  • Chuck went to see the flight demo today and saw a Peregrin, and a Gyrfalcon, and a Kestrel. Wish I'd known in advance, I might have joined you.
  • I'm brewing tomorrow, which is Samhain, Halloween, Last Harvest, Blood Harvest, Ancestor Night, Feast of the Dead, Nos Galan Gaeaf, take your pick. I seem to hit significant events on the Wiccan calendar every time I brew. Coincidence?
