I’m stoked that Halloween is on a Saturday this year.
I don’t want to have to try to duck out of work early, race home, and get ready all before it gets too dark. Plus, my kid’s three now, so she’s at the age where she can fully enjoy the experience. Also, trunk or treats are stupid. Stop anesthetizing everything!
In other news, it was a busy week. I had training for three days and big giant things are happening at work (whether they’re good or bad remains to be seen). I think I published some good stuff, including a piece called “Unpopular Pop Culture Opinions” that generated some interest and there will be more on that topic coming early next week.
Two Halloween tips from 35 years of this earth: 1. carry a pillowcase as your trick or treat bag. It’ll never fill up. 2. If you live in a place that is rural or has houses spread far apart (as I did), go to a development with sidewalks and houses closer together, it’s more efficient. If you live in the city, don’t go on a main street – that’s where everyone goes. Go on a side street (not an alley, just not the main thruway) because those people want to give out candy and get very few visitors.
