My 100th Blogpost

I waited until today so my 100th post would be on my favorite holiday, Halloween. or Samhain for some.

Okay, guys. NaNoWriMo. For some of you, it has already started. For me, it's not officially time for 3 1/2 hours. I haven't signed into my account (I know, I suck) to do my updates and connect with people because... okay, I could drone on about real life and whatnot, but the truth is: I'm a forgetful cow who is easily distracted by anything shiny.

Or with awesome special effects.

Trick-or-Treating etiquette is apparently a thing of the past. A group of six kids came to my door. Every single one of them grabbed heaping handfuls of candy out of my bowl and one little bugger grabbed THREE. He just kept coming back as long as I had the door open for the other kids in his group. HIS PARENTS SAID NOTHING.

At least I'm smart enough to just set my kids loose without me so I don't have to excuse their bad behavior or scold them in front of other people. Ah. Blissfully ignorant, me. My other awesome parenting tactic is to cover my ears and say 'lalalalalalalalala' a lot until they give up trying to tell me something I don't want to hear.

This doesn't work as well with bill collectors. Just saying.

On another note, I guess I spoke too soon. I got a partial request for Postmortal today. "PADDLES, STAT!" *beep* *beep* *beep* We'll see if she pulls through.

There's the doorbell again. I wonder if handsmacking is allowed in Trick-or-Treating etiquette...

Hooray for 100 posts!! I totally missed when I did mine.

Also for partial requests!! EEE! *HUGS*

We totally don't get trick or treaters but I do live up four flights of stairs so I can't blame the little kids.

Really great news about POSTMORTAL. See? That goes to show you to never give up.

And congrats on your 100th post. Good luck with NaNoWriMo this month. I guess I won't see any of my friends for a month.

Oh, well, I guess I will see more of Victor Standish and Alice, his ghoul friend, then.

I love your parenting techniques :)

Oh I hope this request lands you an agent. It is bound to happen.

Congrats on the 100th post - I don't blame you for waiting. I haven't counted mine - I even let my 1 year blogversary go by without realizing it.

Good luck with NaNo.

Congrats on 100th posts. This is first halloween my daughter has not participated. (Snif)childhood must be officially over.

Nice you still have them come to your house.

Melissa Gill said...

Congrats on your 100th post.

I agree about kids on Halloween, they act disgusted if they get just one "fun sized" candy.

yay for the 100!
i'm an overbearing mom- so my sons don't get away with that kind of behavior... but around here, if you don't live in the rich neighborhood, you don't get many trick or treaters, so many houses around here give out a buncha candy to each kid... we only hit 12 houses and visited the patients at the hospital (the hospital provides candy for the pt's to give the trickortreaters- some of them get down about being sick on halloween), and their bags were half full. i was flabbergasted.

Congrats on the 100th post!

And you just described why I do not like Halloween.

And I couldn't help laughing at "forgetful cow." Which you so are NOT.

So many congratulations on your 100th post! I am happy to hear someone else requested a partial. Keep the hope alive, girl!

Well done! 100 posts! I've posted my very first a day or two ago.

100 post celebration is in order!!!

I always thought it was a shame that Halloween is less popular in England. Maybe I was wrong . . .
