Anticipating Halloween QUESTIONS

In my twenties, I used to dress up for Halloween. While I might pull out my Frankenstein mask now and then - I REALLY can't breathe in that thing - I've lost my All Hallows Eve mojo.

But this year, the child is going to need an escort for her trick-or-treating; her costume is a ballet dress that lights up - I might just surprise myself by dressing

All I want to know:

Are you dressing up for Halloween? As what?
Are you going to a party, or parties?
Are you going trick or treating? Do you have a child to provide you cover?

My friend Fred Hembeck's comic icon, Soupy Sales, died this week. One of the many things Fred taught me about Soupy is that he was a Motown artist. Really. And some of the songs, as Fred noted, weren't half bad.
A suitable tribute for Soupy.
Scott from Scooter Chronicles answers my questions.
I've seen this a couple places on the Internet already: the octogenarian war vet's impassioned plea for gay rights.

Ah Soupy! one of my childhood heroes! Live, on monochromatic television! His songs: "The Mouse!" "The Soupy Shuffle!" "Puchaluffaka!"

As for Samhain garb (what the heathen call 'Halloween'), I'm going as one-eyed Odin, the gallows-god.

I don't do Halloween. We just don't really celebrate it in England, though the young kids these days are beginning to, it simply wasn't part of my childhood or my childrens' childhoods. I don't get it. I do put up a banner on my site though, under pressure from my American members. LOL!

Soupy? Again, he's passed me by. Sorry to hear he's gone though.
