Alas. Although after four days in Salem, you'd think I'd have had quite enough of Halloween.
I missed some of my friends, who couldn't make it this year, enjoyed having my niece join us, very much, and have walked around so much that my feet are going to take a few days to recover. But it really is the best party around. We spoke to folks from China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Kazakhstan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the UK, Holland, Colombia, Venezuela, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Puerto Rico, California, Iowa, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, Missouri, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, D.C., and at least twenty towns in Massachusetts. And those are only the ones I can remember off the top of my head! (Or who answered, when I asked.)
My flist is plus some obscene number, so if there's anything important I've missed, feel free to point me at it. Now I need to go work on the housecleaning that didn't get done before I left. Ah, the joys of being a grownup!
