Steph L.: I'm in that state known as Shit, I Am Starving But Can't Think Of A Gotdamn Thing I Want To Eat. Maybe grilled cheese and tomato soup? Oooh, or no, I picked up this yummy autumn soup at TJs, so maybe grilled gouda/provolone and that soup? Hmmmm.
Dana: I'm in the neighboring state, Damnit, I'm Hungry, But All Of My Food Seems Too Complicated.
Jessica: Given the origin of our community, are we certain that migrating on Halloween with a full moon out isn't asking for trouble?
Gud: No problem, all the real demons find it too crass to go out.
From meara, in Natter:
I feel like y’all will appreciate this story from a FB friend of mine here in Seattle:
What was supposed to be a super fun Halloween surprise this evening turned into a terrifying event. I hid pieces of candy each with a little flickering battery lit candle around our backyard for an after dark candy hunt.
We went outside and began the hunt in the dark only to encounter a family of raccoons that had been feasting on the candy in the yard. They didn't run away despite shining lights on them, screaming, and waving long sticks in their direction. This turned into Kid screaming and crying hysterically. She was then running around the yard waving a shovel around above her head screaming "the raccoons can't have MY CANDY."
Everyone is calm and safe inside now watching Ghostbusters. But Kid did say that “Halloween was TOO SCARY this year.”
Dana: Dentists have said that teeth-grinding is way up this year. Can't imagine why.
-t -: Surely it's 4 out 5 dentists agree that teeth-grinding is way up?
Considering how the current administration has handled the pandemic so far, I would expect them to sell the vaccine to another country, or maybe just smash all the vials for the hell of it and tell Pfizer not to make more. Oh! Or give Trump like 500 doses of the vaccine because he thinks it will make him super-immune, and *then* smash the rest of the vials, especially if someone in his administration has an active case of Covid, because fuck them.
"Folks, I've had so much vaccine that I'm now immune to all diseases! Doctors have never seen anything like it, they're like 'President Trump, we've never seen anything like it, no one has ever responded to the vaccine like this,' and some people are saying I might not even be human anymore."

The only way AT&T will ever see another red cent from me is if they dig up my grave and find loose change in the pockets of the suit I'm buried in.
sj: Help, I need manga recommendations for my 15 year old niece, and I don’t read it. Apparently that’s all she’ll read right now.
Dana: Ah, the Cashmere summoning spell.
