Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Mr. Roboto

1. Do you enjoy holidays like Halloween or is your approach more robotic? To reference another holiday icon, I'm certainly not a Grinch, but I'm not seriously into Halloween, either.

2. Have you ever been to a haunted house? Not a real one. Just the ones in amusement parks.

3. What are you doing for Halloween this year? I sent cards to my niece and nephew. I have Atomic Fireballs to give any trick-or-treaters who happen to come by. I recall that multiple, individually-wrapped candies made for good trading when my sister and I compared our hauls.

4. What was your lamest Halloween costume ever? Any of the store bought ones from when I was little.

5. Is handing out candy fun for you, or more of a nightmare? It's irrelevant because my village has cut off Trick or Treating at 7:00 and I'm usually not home by then.

6. Do you buy trick-or-treat candy and end up eating it yourself? I chose Atomic Fireballs in large part because I will happily consume the leftovers myself.

7. Did you carve any pumpkins this year? Nope.

8. What was your favorite costume as a child? I don't recall that many of them. They were store bought and usually ended up being covered by coats anyway. When I was a kid, Halloween was about the candy collection, not the dress up.

9. What is your biggest pet peeve about trick-or-treaters? Don't have any.


  1. Not only fireballs a great "left over" candy, but you can watch the kids who've never had one sweat!

  2. Fireballs? That is too funny.
    Have a great day1

  3. Oh, I haven't had fireballs in forever! I never get trick or treaters, either, but I buy my favorites.

  4. Anonymous7:32 PM

    My pet peeve is kids that don't bother dressing up yet still expect candy. Or parents who expect candy.

  5. worst thing about living in a cooler environment having to cover up the cute costumes with a heavy coat come see my answers at
