    Once upon a time it was very easy for me to know what I had when it came to Halloween. I only had a handful of things and it all fit in a few totes that go stashed in the basement. Now I've taken over two closets, a large chunk of a bedroom, and a corner of the basement that keeps creeping...

    General Halloween
    ...you want to complain to Wal-Mart that the life-sized Velociraptor you purchased online last October was never delivered because you can't find it, but you're really not certain because it could just be buried behind other boxes in your basement. Sigh...
