This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

i have been bamBOOzled.

this bag of halloween treats was mysteriously placed in front of my doorstep monday morning by an anonymous neighbor. aparently they're starting a new tradition here on "wisteria lane" (which i affectionately call our neighborhood, because of the resemblence to the houses in the victorian/traditional style as shown on desperate housewives) . Enclosed was not only the treats, but a boo sign to display on my front door or window, and a poem mentioning that i had just been boo'd and to keep it going by passing 2 boo's to 2 neighbors who hadn't yet been boo'd. and in passing along these 2 new boo's while not getting caught.

After work i went to a few stores to gather some goodies, and had prepared my boo gifts. I had the plan of sneaking up to place the gifts on 2 neighbors doorsteps after 9pm. The hubby and I headed out the front door with renji (our cover) only to see that someone was outside.. i quickly disposed of the boo gifts on the porch and went to make small talk with said neighbor.. i think he suspected us for plotting something.. but what. we walked renji for a bit until the neighbor went back inside then went back to the mission. it was exciting and enthralling. reminded me of mission possible from college. the next morning i could see my boo gifts on their doorsteps, but by the afternoon one of them had been found, and the other remained untouched. possibly a little too camoflauged and hard to distinguish from their own halloween decor on the porch. but by this morning it was gone. happily found i hope. it made my day receiving that boo bag.. because i love geeky things like this. and i hope that i made 2 other peoples days.

::my boo gifts:: which included a pumpkin spice candle, autumn oven mit, and candies.
