halloween

So we got a nice pile of firewood burning, lit the jack O’ lanterns, brought out the food and candy

and dug in for a good night in the driveway greeting the trick or treaters.

Well the firewood we were burning was my old stuff from last year. I had all sorts of wackiness from craigslist yesterday. First I had set up to pick up firewood Wednesday right after work but the guy called a few hours before to let me know someone got the wood last night. Heath and I also found someone giving away free 75 gallon and 40 gallon fish tanks with fish in them and offered to come get them but the lady never responded or called back. Then I found another free firewood offer north of the river and called but the line rang and rang and rang with no answer. Then an add I had responded to a while back about a headboard for a queen size bed responded and sent me a picture and said it was still available. At this point I was excited to get anything free and agreed to come get it then never heard back.

Well I went home at the day with no new toys or anything and Heath and I decided to go to a bar called "Ugly Joe’s" just a mile or so from our house and try it out. It was a cool place and had some good specials. $4 any (1/2 lbs) burger on Wednesday, cheep taco’s on Tuesday and $0.25 PBR Draws on Tuesday and I think $5 pichers on Thursday.

We drank our beers and headed home to get everything ready for the evening. The fire started really easily and took off in no time. I also brought out the fry daddy and a cooler and a bunch of chairs. We started out with fries and kept fresh fries going for quite some time. The fire was really hot and we cooked up 8 cheese burgers and toasted buns in like 5 minutes and they were fantastic. We also kept the fry daddy going and fried up some breaded pickles and jalapeños that were tasty.

For desert we had some candy out of the bowl and some Halloween cupcakes that Becky got. From talking to our neighbors we didn’t expect much from trick or treaters maybe just a few. When our first two showed up we were kinda excited and surprisingly more and more came by. We tried to make our party look unintimidateing and we got several repeat customers (possibly because we were encouraging them to take more candy).

 

Well we drank most of the beers, ate all the burgers, fries, pickles and jalapeños, burned a good pile of wood and gave out all the candy (besides what Heath hid away) and then called it a night.

    So I went into the bathroom to take care of some business, and guess what I heard?  Freaking CHRISTMAS SONGS!  Now don’t you think that November 1st is jumping the gun just a bit to start all of this?  Our company chose KUDL to play in the restrooms….I guess they thought it was relaxing, non-offensive musice, but I’m probably going to start dreaming of assisanating Santa before December even get’s here….all thanks to the rush and push of getting Christmas songs in the air before the air is even cold enough to feel like fall, let alone winter.

    is that the kind of business you were taking care of in the bathroom?

    I heard it yesterday morning when I passed through 102.1 on my radio scan.  I was appauled that they would start on Halloween.  Before long, it’s going to start in June. 

    Chris/Matt, remember when MBE had Christmas music on all the time?  I think "Last Christmas" by George Michael was the Official Christmas song of Mail Boxes Etc. one year.

    I heard Star 102 started Christmas music yesterday or the day before, but I hadn’t heard about KUDL.  Do you have your facts straight, Heath?

  6. Heather says:

    It is KUDL. Maybe the Star is jumping on the bandwagon.

  7. Stooks says:

    KUDL is the one jumping on the bandwagon.  You didn’t hear Christmas music during your morning shit yesterday, did you?

    Down to Judy’s knees.  And Scratch’s official food was Iguana Dip.

  10. Ge-off says:

    Do you think Scratch is still alive? 

  11. Ge-off says:

    Chris and Mary, and Rhonda and my forearms.

  12. Heather says:

    likes people named Mary, espically blond hair virgin ones!

  13. Stooks says:

    See subject.

  15. Heather says:

    that Jesus’ mother Mary had brown hair, com’on Kevin! And you claim to be Catholic!

    I called 102.1 yesterday and the lady who answered was pissed.  She said they had already recieved several hundred calls from unhappy listeners and not one from a happy person.  I just laughed and said I thought it was dumb and she said its the owners who requested it, not even any listeners.  And she ended the conversation with "At least you get to turn this crap off"

  17. Ben Clark says:

    Say that no one likes people named Mary, and then added even more hatred emphasis on blonde prudes.  So technically Kevin was right to assume you a Jew.

  18. Heather says:

    Way to voice your opnion, Ben.  And she was right, we can turn it off.  How funny!

  19. thePrewitt says:

    No christmas music ever.

    Well actually I bet they play a few songs eventually but they will have some story about each song they play.

    It’s one thing to call the Virgin Mary a virgin, but I don’t think she’d like being called a prude.
