Why can't I quit you?

I have a confession:  I've been on blogger every day this week.  (What do you mean you could already tell??)  I've read some posts, I've commented on some posts, I've clicked some links within some posts that took me to some other posts...  Even when work is busy, I itch for my fix and make time when I can to visit blogland.  I suppose it's time to admit I have a problem. 

Hi!  (Waves)  I'm Kit, and I'm a blogoholic.

Y'all are my drug, and I'm hooked.


Well, it's that time of year again:  Halloween is nigh!  The day when little monsters dress up as angels and go door to door begging for freebies.  Actually in my neighborhood the little monsters don't dress up, nor do they bother begging - they just stick their grubby little hands in my bowl and dig out fistfuls of candy before I can even get the door all the way open.  I desperately wish I was exaggerating.  Hoping for a "Trick or treat" is almost as pointless as expecting a "thank you" before they run off to the next house.  So once again this year I'll be leaving my porch light off and curtains drawn tight on Sunday night.  Maybe I'll get Hubs tipsy enough to curl up on the couch with me and some popcorn and watch a scary movie.  (He's a manly man, but he doesn't like scary movies.  They scare me too, but I like to be scared once in a while!)

We're invited to a couple of parties on Saturday night, but we're facing a few dilemmas:

1. We may be hosting house guests for the weekend, starting tonight.  Yep, I said "may."  And to answer your question, yep, I'm annoyed that we still don't know for sure if they're coming.

2. We don't have costumes.  Hubs doesn't want to dress up, and I'm not going to a costume party without a costume.  So I told him it's up to him: either we go and dress up (and he has to help me with the costumes), or we don't go.  I'm not sure if he's decided what he wants to do yet.

3. Halloween also happens to be the 30th birthday of one of our potential guests, and he is as indecisive as Hubs about what he wants to do this weekend.

Jeez I sound like a crotchety old lady!  I'm not as crotchety as I sound though, I promise.  Whatever happens this weekend, I'm not that worried about it.

So.  Are you dressing up this year?  What are you going to be?

Happy Halloween! :)

Not dressing up. Not passing out candy. Coming home after work and will be doing nothing.

I found it very tough to quit blogland all those times I said I would. It's a bit easier for me now.

My costume is one I wear often...drunk girl :) We have friends coming into town and plan on enjoying the Halloween weekend. We are going to pass out candy to trick or treaters though!

I know what you mean...bloggers are my drug, too. (Well, until tomorrow. Tomorrow, Foll.istim's my drug...)

I teach 5th grade, and the other 5th grade teachers and I dressed up as a group this year for the first time. One was a farmer, and the rest of us were her animals. I was a pig. A pink, pink pig. *oink*

HI KITTY! *waves back*

I'm not big on Halloween, but my friends are. This year, Hubby and I dressed up as Dexter and his sister Deborah. He got a little complicated what with a splashguard and all, but I basically got to wear a shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a big black watch. And cussed a lot, which I do anyway, so....

Have a good weekend. :)

I am with you on the blogaholic... I just can't get enough. I hope that your potential house guest decides soon! Have a Happy Halloween!

Ahh! The blog drug I know and love!!

I have always wanted to go to a Halloween party now that I'm an adult, but hubs isn't too into all that mess. Plus, this is the 1st year that he isn't working nights...normally he is trying to sleep before going into work while the doorbell goes insane.

But, at our new house, no one really comes by, so the light will be off and if by chance we do get some trick or treaters, they are not going to like us after we hand out canned veggies. I didn't even buy candy this year. Ha!

Have a good weekend, whatever you wind up doing!
