The haunt started out slow, but good. For a first time haunted house with little advertising, I am impressed. In two nights we had over 300 paying customers and approximately 100 of the free tickets came back to us. No too bad. This weekend should be MUCH better. *bounces*

The only problem is that I am zonked. Completely wasted. I had forgotten how hard it is to work 8 hours a day and then go work at the haunt for 6 until 1:30 in the morning. Followed by food and bed, of course, so in bed around 2 or 2:30. This will take some adjusting. 

I bought pumpkins to carve today. *is excited* Jack-o-lanterns are the epitomy of the Halloween season (and since it's October I can honestly say that it is Halloween time, now. *sticks out tongue*) I need to buy candy corn and haul out some spider candy dishes, in addition to all of the other holiday stuff I still have to do. 

I am debating on whether or not to haul out the Halloween molds and recipes. It sucks not having a place of my own, but at least I can maybe throw a small party for the kids. Maybe a little afternoon party for the niece & nephew.  Something to break the monotony of their week. I could let them invite friends from school. Yes. I think it will work. It's a school night, which sucks, but I think the haunt crew is going to get together for a party that night. Party for the kids in the afternoon. Party for the adults at night. Life is good. 

Anyone want to come and be scared? The haunt is always happy to oblige. bwahahaha!!

Ooooh~ So it's doing well? I'm glad.

Ahhhh, I love this time of year! Unfortunately I don't think I'm going to dress up this year (and if I do it'll be the lazy costume of the century), though it'll be nice just sitting at home and handing out candy to the kiddies (If I'm not going to class that night *laughs*...is Halloween on a Tuesday? *blinks*). Ahhhhh, Halloween. *_*

I know that my sister and I might be decorating the house though this year--we usually decorate the house for special occasions, though I think the most we're going to do is take out the halloween candles and when it's actually Halloween night, we'll put on some horror movie music, take out the strobelights and colored lights, and make the inside flashy for when the kids arrive. But even so, it'll be fun.

GAK! I think I rambled too much again!

That sounds awesome, I'm glad it went so well! I'm going to buy my pumpkin today and carve it up nice. I don't have any molds or shapes yet but I'll buy some when they go on sale afterwards. *L* Save them for next year. I think you said but what is your official costume this year?

Ya know I have done MANY haunted houses in the past, well being in the theatre, the theatre I work with had 2 in the past both of which I was a vampire 9_9 (haunted theatre) ... yeah I have the prosthetics made 9_9 ... then when I had my own theatre company I was the "tour guide" of the haunted house we made, also another vampire ... I even made the local news ... I'll have to post that picture! LOL! Have fun!
