The Orange Box

Halloween was kind of hectic. But only because I had a late meeting so pickup and getting home was in hyper mode. Then I had to get dinner in Master Keegan before going out to trick or treat. Tom came to join us and helped Keegan into his costume. We only did a little of the neighborhood. We collected money for UNICEF but many people insisted on giving us candy too. So Keegan collected the treats and Tom stored them in his sweatshirt pouch. I remember carrying the box around for UNICEF donations when I was a kid but apparently it's not that common around here. One woman told me she doesn't support UNICEF because they opposed international adoptions (I don't know what the story is, let me know if you do.) But I think they are doing a 50% donation to Katrina victims with the US donations. Anyway Keegan was very polite and thanked everyone and was totally hooked on the idea of getting free stuff. I will go by a c*oinstar machine to see what we collected. Tom hung out for a while longer and then left before bathtime taking his pouch full of candy with him. I'm taking the rest of the bowl into work because noone in this house needs candy. All in all a successful Halloween I think.
