I keep getting calls and emails from Sunlight Financial wanting to remind me that I still haven't sent them my bank info for my solar project. Um, we haven't agreed on a "solar project" yet folks!
Tell them to stick the solar project where the sun don't shine!

After a busy morning, I did some lunch research and online ordering, and now think I'm having a good day.

At out house, Halloween is a pretty big deal. We have a chili cook-off, costume contest and ping pong tourney at work (it used to be kick ball, but we've had a few too many injuries). And at home, I always decorate the house and yard and wear a costume, mostly with a theme of some sort, and stay outside to pass out the candy to the trick or treaters. Some of the themes have been a mad scientist in my lab, man in black with a crashed UFO and alien autopsy table, Dr. Nefario (from the Despicable Me/Minions movies), and Dentist. I have smart spot lights aimed at the house that flash along with a thunderstorm soundtrack, etc. I thought I was a shoe-in as Fat Thor for the work costume contest two years ago, but lost to Mrs. Doubtfire. That was a tough loss.

Last year was the first in the new house, and I didn't have a theme, just put out all of the tombstones, gargoyles, spiders, etc. and tried out Atmos FX digital decorations, with ghosts at the windows, which looked great.

So I wanted to get back to a theme, and my daughters vetoed buying a ton of old creepy dolls from Goodwill and having them all over the yard, in the tress, etc. So I was leaning toward just doing a mad scientist lab again as I already have most everything for it and it would be new for this neighborhood. But I wanted a Tesla coil or Jacob's ladder to add to it. I couldn't really find anything that fit the bill for what I was imagining, so I got on the Atmos FX website to see if they had any mad scientist digital decorations that might work. They didn't, but they do have some T-Rex and Velociraptor stuff. And I know just where to hang the holoscreen outside for that.

After that, I spent some time on Amazon to order a Hawaiian shirt, glasses, member's only style jacket, raincoat, a can of Barbasol, and a few other things...so I'll be passing out candy as Dennis Nedry...

I wonder if I can get the Jeep into the front yard...
You have trick or treaters coming to your outhouse?

I try to hold to that theory also...but there are times when you are waiting for a call back and you don't have the number saved...then you answer the call and DAMMIT!!!! Another spammer!!!!! And then you are tentative to answer the next call. HAHA
same here.

I get the email even when there is nothing, and sometimes on Sundays too.
