We got 7 or 8 groups of trick-or-treaters last night, which was way more than last year. There was one teenager with no costume, but at least he was polite. One tiny little kid shouted, "Hi Lady! Hi Lady! Hi Lady!" at me the entire time he was climbing the front steps. I don't think he even knew the point was to collect candy. He just seemed happy to meet people.

I love seeing kids happy and confident and embracing life like that.

Do you still live in/near Albany? And if yes, where was this zombie burlesque?

I live in Boston now, actually. Sorry!


Yeah I remember you said you were doing that but I wasn't sure if you had or not.

Last night I was driving home in the dark around 7 and it was a rainy, blustery night, but there were all these adorable little Batmans and ghosts and witches out. It made me remember how magical Hallowe'en is for kids! Brought back a lot of memories of parading around my childhood neighbourhood in search of candy. Sometimes I got two pillowcases full (and a big tummy ache). The one downfall of living where we do, in an apartment building, is we don't get any kids.

When I was younger, there was a guy who lived near my grandparents, that worked at Juicy-Juice and handed out full size giant things of Juicy-Juice for Halloween and full size giant candy bars. He was everyone's favorite. It was a Halloween tradition for us.

My brothers and I used pillow cases as our loot bags too. We usually still had candy left in February, so much candy. But it used to always be so cold Halloween night, nothing like having a coat and or snow pants ruin your costume. Still, it was such fun having a night on the town like that. We lived way out in the country and were driven into the local town (population 400) for shelling out, it was exciting.

Someone just let off fireworks, unexpectedly, really close to my house. I seriously almost pissed my pants with fright!

I did this thing at work where you fill out a sheet with the prices of 5 stationery items you order with your current supplier and they quote you their prices and send you free Krispy Kreme donuts. I only did it because one of my co-workers sent it. Anyway, the donuts came today, and they looked and smelled so delicious. Goddammit, why can't they be vegan?! Anyway, I'm gonna make donuts tomorrow. I might have to make a variety because of reasons. But I'm meeting up with a bunch of people throughout the day, so maybe I'll give everyone a donut goodie bag. And then I can have, like, 5 different types of donut.

I haven't had a donut in something like...oh goodness, almost 10 years. Before I was vegan, I was afraid of them (old eating disorder crepe), and now that I want them again, they're nowhere to be found. And as I said in another thread, I'm intensely lazy about making my own sweets.

I feel ya on the too lazy. But sometimes you gotta have a goddamn donut. Actually, I could buy donuts, but I want American-style donuts. British-style donuts are OK, but they don't compare to KK, and that's what got me in the mood for donuts. I think I'll just make baked donuts tomorrow, but they'll still be different from the donuts I could buy. I'm thinking of going out early(ish) to get another can of pumpkin so I can make pumpkin spice donuts. Those used to be my favourites from KK.

The new Co-op ring donuts aren't good. Their custard ones were ace.

I made doughnuts yesterday! They were for my friend's Halloween party, but almost everyone was a douche and cancelled last minute, so six of us killed 16 doughnuts. Somehow. They were apple cider doughnuts, though, and hella tasty.

I have yet to have a vegan donut. This must change. I'm feeling nostalgic.

Neither have I! I don't even remember donuts. Clearly I need to find/bake and eat one ASAP.

I am quite sure they have them at Through Being Cool, the new vegan bakery on Bloor West.

My dad just confused 'Little Bunny Foo Foo' with 'Little Honey Boo Boo'. Pretty fantastic.

My mum always gave me a specific halloween-ish bag/plastic pumpkin, and then it wasn't until I was like 12, I went out trick or treating with some new friends and they all busted out pillowcases, and... well let's just say my mind was blown.

I miss reading books in the bathroom! Before I went vegan, I would be in there long enough to get a chapter in, but now I am barely able to get the book opened up to the right page before I am done.

Sick of being sick all the time. At least I'm home now; it's easier to be sick and miserable here. But man, it's been like a 2-week long flu. Sucks.

Oh man, I miss donuts. The last time I had them was summer 2009. Fantastic Mighty O donuts (and I wasn't even vegan at the time). Now I have neither donuts nor a donut pan. Is it possible to make your own without a donut pan?

ETA: Oh, lutin, sorry to hear you're still feeling sick. Please do take care of yourself. (((hugs)))
