Im going to a huge party tonight.
My costume is the undead version of Captain Ahab from Moby Dick.

I have been working on the makeup, and so this morning I was in the bathroom applying it for a final go before the party as a test.
The kids are watching cartoons, the wife is at work. I have my face all undeaded up after about 30 minutes of applying makeup and someone knocks on the door and the dogs start barking.
I cant expect the kids to answer the door ( they are very young), so I wander out to the door and ask "who is it?" every time they say who it is, the dogs start barking so I cant hear them. Im getting a little mad at this point.
So I open the door and its the Jehovahs Witnesses (just for the record I have nothing against them) and they hand me a flyer titled "The end of False Religion is near".
So Im standing there with 2 90 pound dogs growling behind me, Im wearing a old worn peacoat, the outside of my house is looking like, well you know. My face looks like I just came up up from Davy Jones locker. I grin, accept the flyer, look up at them and the look on their faces was priceless, ROFLMAO. I say "thanks guys, but Im a bit busy" and at this point I closed the door. I wish I would have had a camera

He said they started their whole speal blah blah blah when our rotti came running from the side deck to the front. Sam looked over and yelled... heal, ... satan... heal. The guy was like your dogs name is satan. He said yeah and i got a gillatine and a coffin in the back. Wanna come see it. He said the guy just handed him a pamplet, turned around and walked away. :D

Too funny! This makes, what, at least four of us here on the forum who have been approached by JW's in the past week or two? They must have a directive from Kingdom Hall Headquarters to try to go out and brainwash *ahem*, excuse me, convert as many people as they can here at Hallowe'en time.

That was the same pamphlet that was stuck on my door, krough. I read the title, laughed, and said "False religion? Well y'all had better be prepared for the END, then." before I chucked it in the trash. That's exactly what I would have said if I'd been home when they had come calling.

I have a sign in my door window that says "no soliciting - unless your a neighborhood kid"... (I work from my dining room and quickly got tired of interruptions during the week)

Anyway - I was walking to my mailbox when I was approached. I was polite for a moment and said - hey, I'm sorry, I'm just getting my mail... beside, I have a sign on my door that says no solicitors.

This gal replied "we aren't solicitors - solicitors ask for money."

I gave her my best psychotic look and said "you know damn well that means you too"

She said she appreciated my abruptness and scooted along!

Maybe the end of the world is coming afterall - the Jehovahs Witnesses were in our neighborhood last weekend, too.

We had the annual neighborhood yard sale. It was cold, windy and the Jehovah's were the biggest crowd that showed up. Didn't buy much, though.

I'm going back to eBay to sell my junk, no pamphlets that way.

A funny thing happened this evening and it didnt included any JW's. Things were starting to wind down, when I saw two very large teens walking up the street. They were dressed as the Insane Clown Posse. They had to be 16 or 17 years old. As they lumbered up the sidewalk, my six year old daughter met them at the porch with the bowl of treats. As they stood there looking down at my daughter, the larger of the two said " Man am I embarrassed. This situation should be reversed...I should be passing candy out to you. The things I guy will do for a free piece of Chocalate." I have to tell you, I laughed my a$$ off. I told my daughter to give them double. As they lumbered away, they asked how much time was left. I told them 10 min. They then crossed the street to the neighbor, when she answered the door, I heard her giving them a hard time concerning their age.This only made me start to laugh again. My daughter must have thought I was losing my mind.....

I give candy to everybody, chaperones included. You're sitting there talking shop with them, and when they turn to go, you give 'em a handshake -- in the process pressing a gummy eyeball into their unsuspecting palm. When they realize what happened, just for a second they're a kid again. I think that's worth a bag or two extra of candy on my budget.
