Trick or treat! [Nov. 1st, 2002|12:37 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
My parents and little brother Cole came over for Halloween. My mom wanted to see little kiddies trick-or-treating, since they get none at their house.

One of the first was the best... little girl hardly able to walk dressed up as a red Lego piece. She didn't talk. Her parents were on both sides of her, holding her arms and lifting her up the stairs on 3.... She just kinda stared back confused as I put candy in her bag and her parents said 'trick or treat'. Sooo cute.

I bought a light fixture for the dining room and a good thermostat. Parents installed them both. My mom lives for home improvement projects and my dad knows electrical stuff. Between them, they're unstoppable. My mom's been bugging me about buying both forever. Now that I have, I'm curious to see what she'll pester me about next.

Are your parents for rent, by any chance? :-)

Hmmm.... we might be able to work out a time share agreement.

Hope you got a picture of the Lego kid; sounds great!

Don't I recall you hooking your house up with this ultra-smart thermostat system already, one that took into account typical usage, solar energy, and time-dependent fuel costs?

I thought about being the one in the family to give out candy this year... Instead, I let my brother do it.

When I did go to look at the trick or treaters, I got rather disappointed; I saw a bunch of pre-teen boys going around trick or treating in no costume whatsoever.

I wanted to beat them with a broom. :p
