I write about a lot of things... mostly my life, my kids, what bugs me and, of course, THEATRE...

'Tis Halloween and Mark has taken our two boys, the pirate and the fireman, out for treats. I am always amazed at the haul they come home with. I am manning the door. So far we have had about 10 kids... it is almost 8:00 p.m. We have a big bowl of candy at the door. I am trying to be generous so as to deplete it, but even the big handfuls don't add up when you have so few kids. Earlier in the evening, Oliver drew a face on our pumpkin and I carved it out. It is quite nice... huge eyes, small nose and medium sized mouth. Looks very Tim Burtonish... I like it! I couldn't find the carver I bought last year, so I used a jack knife. I tried a steak knife, but it was too long. The jack knife was perfect. Next year, I am determined to get their costumes settled earlier. A last minute discovery that the ninja suit's zipper was toast meant a rush purchase of pirate accessories at Shoppers. Oliver is, thankfully, happy with his last minute costume, but I was not happy to be running around looking for it so late in the game!
