Good idea...Bad idea...

Good idea: Having candy for trick-or-treaters.
Bad idea: Having so much candy that you eat most of it yourself and then don't end up having trick-or-treaters because you live in a secure apartment buildling. I ended up taking what was left (basically anything that wasn't a KitKat or a Reese's) down to my sister's party in Provo. And luckily so...they had run out of loot for the kids who were coming.

Good idea: Buying cute tights and a headband for your "hot secretary/librarian/teacher" costume.
Bad idea: Leaving them at your sister's house the night before you need to dress up.

"Can you see a little Target bag with my stuff? I think I forgot it..."
Sarah: "Uh, I can't see it right now...can you pull over and look for it in your car?"
Me: "Kind of going through construction right now...sorry."
...a little later (and a second phone call)...
Me: "Any luck?"
Sarah: "Oh wait...yeah...here it is."
Me: "Crap."

Good idea: Making homemade vanilla bean custard for the office party.
Bad idea: Staying up until 2:00am to do so. This followed the debacle that erupted trying to find dry ice (which the Wal-Mart in SLC doesn't sell?!) and getting shooed out of the aisles (Wal-Mart closes at midnight?!?!?) gathering last-minute ingredients for homemade root beer and custard. (By the by...the effort was totally worth it...)

Good idea: Putting on fake nails to complete the look of above-mentioned costume.
Bad idea: Putting on fake nails to complete the look of above-mentioned costume. So many things you cannot do with fake nails!
  1. Type.
  2. Text (or do anything that requires pushing buttons on a cell phone).
  3. Button buttons.
  4. Remove contact lenses from your eyes (youch!).
  5. Put on nylons.
  6. Open jewelry clasps.
  7. Play the piano.

Good idea: Letting your friends fill the pinata for the Halloween party.
Bad idea: Letting your friends have free reign of your kitchen while they do this...bouillon cubes, fruit leather, Crystal Light packets, spice jars (plastic), yeast packets, little pigs-in-a-blanket, carrots...? It was quite interesting when Darth Vader's head got cracked open and all sorts of strangeness spilled forth. The Crystal Light and fruit leather were quite the hit, though.

Good idea: Spending the majority of the day on Saturday eating whatever I wanted, sleeping whenever I wanted (didn't get out of my pajamas until 5:30 at night...), and catching up on my television watching.
Bad idea: Uh...I got nothing for this one. :)

Our additions to that pinata were amazing! Admit it! :) I know...we're evil.

I love it! Sounds like a pretty crazy fun Halloween! Favorite part is that you alluded to Animaniacs with the whole "good idea bad idea"
