I spent all day today drawing a self-portrait made of text. (look for pictures in the OT creativity thread soon)

Also I got up to the boss of the volcano world in pac-land 2.

And I found out the controller I got from ebay is defective.  ARRGH.

I also played some Spider and Web.  It's so amazingly unbelievably awesome (it truly unfolds the potential of IF as both a story-telling and interactive medium), but I'm stuck in front of the lab doorway.  Hmm.

So, my day has not been particularly halloween-y.

there's a lot of ways to get through. Experiment, get the feedback from the agent when you mess it up. The puzzles in spider and web aren't very sticky, to make a bad pun. Excellent game.

You weren't the only one, it was absolutely deserted last night. There were barely any trick-or-treaters where I lived. Did anyone else find that the number of people out for halloween had significantly dropped this year?

Yes.  I had a total of 6 trick-or-treaters arrive at my house as compared to last years 45.  Good for me because I get all the leftover candy!  When you don't go trick-or-treating its all you get... :(

This is sad. Funny how it seems to have tanked so quickly, I've noticed participation creeping down over the last couple of years, but I was shocked at the drop for this year.

Elaborate, please?

And since halloween is over, guess I'll change my avatar.

I dig that, crab.  Have you got an online gallery or something?  I've always dug your stuff, but I haven't seen much of it.
