And like the last few years, I've had to work on Halloween, so I had prestaged my life-sized uglies in the second bedroom the night before. The smalls and the lights were already outside, so we hustled to get the big guys set up. It was just a quick "pass through the gauntlet" along the sidewalk, but it's given me ideas for next year.
|Homemade Freddy that's being updated after this Halloween, even though this is only his second Halloween.|
|Homemade Michael, new for this year. However, the fan that operated his head burned out after an hour and a half.|
|Michael in the fog.|
|Pennywise and Chucky were new this year.|
There was the good mixed bag of little kid screams and laughing parents this year. However, it just felt a little rushed and not my best effort this year. We had just two chalk outlines but they were noticed, so that was good.
I guess this year, it's like I had a little bit of a "bah humbug" feeling for Halloween. I've been slammed at work and just recently found out that my supervisor is leaving, and I might be out of a job sometime between, oh, now and April, because of cutbacks. So I've had to start looking for another job, again.
There's just a bunch of random things in my life that I'm not happy with right now, so it's making me a bear to be around. I wish I could change a whole bunch of things in my life, even stuff in the past.
