Anyone, anyone? I'm planning a good costume this year but if there's nowhere to wear it I'll give up now, because I can't be sparing a lot of money for wigs and shoes right now.

I have no idea... I'm so out of the loop now ever since I started having to wake up at 8AM nearly every day. I don't even see my friends as much anymore, because I can't stay out past 11PM most nights anymore. So sad...

If I knew of any good Halloween parties happening, I would totally go - even if I had no costume to wear. I don't have $$ to spare on a costume, so I'd just wear.. um.. a yellow dress and hold both an umbrella and a Morton's salt container. Easy as pie.

What is Halloween without a party at my house?

Scotland's a bit far to travel for that.

Took the night off to meet the neighborhood kids. I wish we had the $ to decorate, but as long as we give 'good' candy we should make friends.

I'm planning not to get shot by tourists in the Castro.
Hope that works out!

So, if you are a visitor to SF for Halloween, please take the ammo out of your guns. Just throw rocks and cigarette butts like everyone else. Thanks!

I'm coming from my cube farm (apartments) so I'm so looking forward to meeting actual children! Even Karma (da dog) can't wait!) Whatever do I feed them?

As far as I know, Castro Halloween is still cancelled and chances are there will be barricades and cops everywhere. It's been a police state the last two years.

Yeah, there was a big cranky sign in BART yesterday that said something to the effect of "There is NO Halloween celebration in the Castro. There will be extra police on duty. There will be NO enhanced BART/MUNI service on Halloween. The last train from San Francisco to the East Bay leaves at Midnight on Halloween."

San Francisco: The city that knows how to have a good time!

yah, it may not be blessed by the city, but it is still packed with non-Castro folks each year. I typically venture out to see friends at their place and we huddle up and watch movies on Halloween. Sometimes we yell at 1/2-naked cute people from the window. Usually we try to coax them to 1-naked status in the wind and cold.
There seems to be a huge influx of straight-looking thuggy/fratty types equipped with "tall boy" beers, and not very many actual costumes. It is kind of sad, like burning man, but more so.

But hey, at least the erotic exotic thing was cancelled before Richmond got tagged with its lameness (that has plagued Cow Palace & SF for years!)
That was practically a public service!

I have no plans for Sunday but some for Saturday.

After the work costume party, maygles and I might be going to a house party in the haight being held by someone who used to come help at food not bombs. I don't know anyone else there though. I'm guessing it'll be a noisy, costumed, crowded, drunken affair. You're welcome to come if that interests you!

Not sure when we'd get there though... probably lateish unless the work party really sucks.

I have an awesome costume idea but nothing to do. It's a Sunday, so I'll probably just do homework

and bake pumpkin cinnamon rolls

and watch the premier of that zombie show.

how did I never notice before the adorableness of piglets in a pumpkin?!
Somewhere in the discount bin of my dreams, there is a calendar of goats in trees with piglets in pumpkins.

I seriously <3 it! I am pretty sure it's open to the public (or to friends of workers, at the very least), so if people want to join us...
