Quick, turn off the porch light and don't answer the door, those hoodlums, oops, I mean, darling children are preparing to suffer from to much sugar at the end of this month.

"You know you're Overdoing Halloween when..." from "a joke a day ministries"

you're pestered all year by kids who want to know
what the theme for THIS year is?

you find yourself thinking that one corpse
is more attractive than another?

you get more excited over a fog machine than
your new car?

you have more help at your haunt than necessary
for an old-fashioned barn raising?

you have more than ten sound effect CD's?

you have names for the skeletons in your closet?

you play spooky music all year round?

you spend more on one Halloween than on your
entire wedding?

you spend more on one Halloween than on your spouse
for the entire history of your marriage?

you spend more on one Halloween than on buying
an anniversary present for your spouse?

your neighbors look slantways at you and avoid
you a full month before Halloween?

your shed, basement, & attic contain nothing
but Halloween props?

the only candelabra you own is in a spider web motif?

there a monster under your bed because your
attic/basement/shed is full?

your electric bill is higher in October than in July?

the family dog ignores masked individuals
breaking into your house?

instead of giving your child a cat or dog did you
give them a gargoyle to play with?

your neighbors are asked about Halloween,
do they roll their eyes and point at your house?

the guy at the paint counter at the hardware store
sees you coming and starts stacking gallon cans
of flat black and bright pumpkin orange on the counter.

you go to "Goth Night" at a local teen center, armed with
a pocketful of "volunteer recruitment" flyers.

you can't watch a horror movie without jotting
down ideas every two minutes.

you're nervous about taking rolls of film in to be
developed, for fear the police might show up at your
house looking for the corpses that the developer clued
them in to.

you have a room in your house reserved for special
props/projects, and won't allow anyone in there
because it'll "spoil the Halloween surprise!"

you scare other family members or neighbors on a
regular basis, often without meaning to.

your ideal pet would be a black cat, a tarantula,
a snake, a bat, or a rat.

people refuse to walk into your house at night.

people refuse to walk into your house in broad daylight!

you have a customized license plate that has
something to do with Halloween.

you start actually setting up your yard haunt in August
and don't get it all down until almost Christmas...

you still aren't finished on Halloween, but it'll do.
Gotta start earlier next year...

you cannot throw ANYTHING away that could even
CONCEIVABLY be used to scare someone.
(Even if you don't know how yet...)

the boys in the white coats are afraid to come in your yard

your children turn their bedroom into a giant spider web by
stringing yarn everywhere and pretend to attack when you
get tangled in it.

the Kids hiss at each other and make claws with their
hands when they fight.

"Addams Family" books are the most commonly read
children's books laying around.

you still think your kids are well adjusted....

Well personally I like treating the kids that come to my door and like seeing their costumes. I give them good candy too! We really get bombarded with tons of kids. The year before I ran out of candy! this year I anticipate even more kids!

"You know you're Overdoing Halloween when..."



Ummmmm....I just answered "yes" to all the questions. When my daughter was in elementary school, her school had a yearly haunted house put on by parents. A one night event to give the kids something fun to look forward too. There were actually two haunted houses....one for younger children with friendly characters and the other for the older kids where the parents tried to really scare them. I got involved during my daughter's kindergarten year and ever-after I was known as Count Gary. I ran the scarey haunted house long after my daughter moved on to Junior High and into High School. We used the school gym to create a hugh maze and populated it with as many horrors as we could. I built a "Spirit Chamber Box" where we could turn a person into a werewolf while you watched. We used a bungee cord to make a vampire fly up to the ceiling of the darkened room. We had a bridge suspended by chains from the ceiling. We had a room that appeared to be crawling with snakes and spiders. One year I was a body being chopped apart by a mad man. My head and shoulders were real, the rest of my body wasn't. But I could still move the severed body parts. This never started out as a fundraiser but by the time I finally stopped it was one of the biggest fundraisers of the year drawing people from miles away. As the kids grew up and left the school many would come back to help us put on the event. We also forwarned parents that this was very intense. If someone started to go through and decided they couldn't handle it (funny thing was it was sometimes a parent) we had a code word and masks would come of and we would make sure that person saw it was all fake. I'm still not sure who looked forward to this night more....the parents who worked it or the students who went through it.

This picture is of me while the lights were still on.

What is your most memorable Halloween costume?

Mine is the last year I went trick-or-treating. My friend Nathan and I went out as the Blues Brothers. He was Jake and I was Elwood (I'm taller than him). To ensure the best selection (Blues Brothers is a perennial favorite), we went to the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store about a month before and bought old suits and fedoras.

Here's the pic I have of us that Halloween. I'm on the left.

I had to go looking for that photo.

I just wish I could've used Photoshop to remove my *cough*acne scars*cough*. I had real bad acne as a teenager. My face looked like a pepperoni pizza.
