    that this:

    The girls wear torn stockings, too much mascara, and slutty miniskirts.  Which is to say...they are dressed for school.
    is pretty damned true.

    As for me, I have a routine for Halloween. First, around the first of October, I stop by my friend Eric's house. He has a great chicken coop and usually is happy to give me a couple of dozen fresh pullet eggs--the small kind that you can really fit in one hand. I get the eggs, and I put them in the trunk of my Subaru and I leave them there for the rest of the month. Then, on Halloween, I drive over to Bill in Portland Maine's house and take the eggs out of the trunk. I throw the eggs, and then I decorate the yard with toilet paper that I get for 45 cents a roll at Renys.

    Every year like clockwork, I have a blast on Halloween.
