|A few thoughts about Halloween:
- I like how we have a national holiday to celebrate candy. I'm all for that. I go to the stores and walk up and down the "holiday" aisle, which is usually full of crappy decorations and other stupidity, but for this holiday it's full of beautiful, wonderful candy. God bless America.
- I'd like to reiterate my point from two years ago: Enough with slutty costumes. We get it. You're a slut. High five.
- I remember being a kid and suddenly figuring out how inefficient the tradition of candy collection is. I lived in a fairly spread-out neighborhood with hills and no sidewalks. On a typical Halloween night, I would walk about three miles, most of which was in the dark, usually in cold weather. I discovered I could quite easily buy all that candy myself for about $10, and I wouldn't get stuck with things I didn't like.
