1 vote per person. Cannot change vote. Can be seen by anyone.

I didn't go trick or treating, nor did I play Descent. I played Mechwarrior. Well... Assault Tech1: Battle Tech if you want to go into specifics.

I did, but as an adult supervising young ones.

They (a 11 yr old boy in a StarTrek Original Series Captain uniform, a 9 yr old girl in a princess/mermaid costume, a 6 yr old in a Luigi costume) had a lot of fun and made out like bandits.  They'll be buzzed for a couple days, then they will start to forget about the candy ... then I'll get my 'share' sure enough.  ;D

I dressed up in a costume, but I never went trick or treating ('cept at this one house, with good decorations and a fire going). I spent my time handing out candy or visiting a friend.

I dressed up as the Thnikkaman (bubs' alter ego) but I didn't do trick or treating but instead I give out candy and not currently playing Descent.  But I also did play Assault Tech 1: Battletech.

And my Brother (who's older than me) and his friend is currently watching horror movies.

I did not go out for trick-or-treating this year, nor have I gone within the past 5 years. I think it's would be kinda weird if anyone above the age of 13 is still trick-or-treating. I know so many seniors at school who went out tonight. This day is solely for kids.

My kids had been sick all week, so my wife canceled Halloween altogether for all of us. No trick or treating, no giving out candy. Nothing.  :'(

That's a big cookie. :P

I had to work on Halloween night, so I didn't do any trick-or-treating of the sort. I could've dressed up regardless, but I didn't do that either.

I didn't go trick or treating, but I did go buy candy (Reese's Dark peanut butter cups are the epitome of greatness in the "little-to-no nutritious value refined sugar substances" category) and go over to a friend's house and hung out with people there. My best friend and I were dressed (poorly) as ninjas - and we actually went with a Katana sword and a couple of Sais. It was a night filled with the "Apples to Apples" party/card game and Guitar Hero II... Much fun.  ;)

I would like to volunteer that even though I'm a college student with a bunch of other college students, there was no alcohol consumption or drug use. Just good fun  ;D

I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

So it is! "Thank you sir my I have another!"   ;)

And, sorry, did not mean to edit your post, hit the wrong button. I should have noticed the lack of quote tags, but I did not.

Now that's an accomplishment. Be sure and put that in your profile under accomplishments.  ;)

Obviously, we've raised you right.  ;D

Haha! Definitely. If someone asks why I'm such a drag for not going to the "hottest parties" in college, I'll tell them that WillyP told me not to.  ;)

Really, I'm one of those guys who was raised by a family of devout Christians here in the buckle of the "Bible Belt" as we call it (you can't go three blocks without seeing a church) and really stuck to his guns even in college. I could hardly stand the Blue Moon beer I tried at some point anyway - I had to down it with an Orange Crush soda just to get the taste out of my mouth.  ;D

I'm Christian too, but let's remember, everybody's base religion is Descent. ;)
[small]the Descent books shall forever be my bible...jk :P [/small]

You know, I don't think I will ever have beer or any type of alcoholic drinks. I asked my parents for a taste a little while back AND THAT WAS IT. I'll be as clean as a whistle. No drunk driving for me. B)
