Candy Crush

What is your favorite type of candy? Do you sneak candy from your child's stash? Do you take certain types of candy out of your own stash and then give away the stuff you don't want? Do you limit yourself and/or your child when it comes to amount of candy consumed on Halloween? Candy is serious business.

Happy Halloween

What am I supposed to do with my BBQ? It's propane. Has no cover. It's on my deck. It's becoming winter here and it goes down to -30 to -40 here (Canada). Is it ok to sit there or should I put it in my garage/basement?

Also, my basement is freezing! I can see my breath. We have a town house, it's about 10 years old. We just moved in this year. I have central heating but I don't see vents down there. The rest of the house is toasty but the basement is so cold. Is it just normal for basements to be cold? If not, who should I call? We pay condo fees.

DK/DC: Ever have issues with a friend? That's pretty vague.

A friend of mine (she's my boyfriends friends girlfriend) lost it at me the other night. She thought I gave her number to my gym ( I did not. I have never referred anyone and I have no numbers listed as friends) and just flipped, and said she was going to throw out my mail ( they live in our old apt, some of our stuff ends up there). I just went I am not fighting over this and ignored her. But from there I don't know what to do.

I've had issues with her before. I'm pretty easy going but it's getting frustrating. If she wasn't dating a friend of my bfs I would cut off contact, but I don't want to make things awkward for them. Ugh, this is why I have cats and no friends..

I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking, did he fire six shots or only five? Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. How many shots did I fire, punk?

Happy Halloween :)

So I live upstairs in an apartment complex. We do have a good number of kids around so I bought a couple small bags of candy. I wanted to hand out candy this year but:
I have a 15 month old son who never can stay up past 7:15 pm. So he will be sleeping at the prime trick or treating time and the constant knocking and loud kids at the door would not be a good thing. (Our apartment is really small) I am also sick as heck in my first trimester and don't feel like getting up and down all night. (lame, I know).

So I was going to just light up the jack o lanterns and set out a bowl of candy with a "Take some, please!" sign. That way the kids get candy without having to knock and make noise. My husband thinks I am crazy and that one kid will take it all, etc. But I feel like they will be with parents and its not like we get tons and tons of kids. I'm guessing ten. At most. I think most kids will do the right thing and just take a few.

So, TQC, what do you think? Is my husband right and I'm crazy to do this? Should I just turn off the lights and not set it out?

Writing.

I have this terrible habit (among many others) of referring to my main pairing in fiction by their names smashed together. Like how in the fanfic world, people who ship together Dean & Castiel will call them Destiel. I guess in a way it's harmless as long as it's not in my actual work, only shows up in notes I made that the readers will never see, but I don't know...

So if anyone else here has bad writing habits, what are they?
