devil's night came and went

turns out, devil's night, which i always assumed was a nationwide phenomenon of flame and destruction, is actually special to detroit. this is a belief i have held through college and it wasn't until very recently that bringing in your decorations and taking cover on oct. 30th was not a common practice.

meanwhile, in DC the thing to do on the night before halloween is to go to the high heels race in adam's morgan/dupont circle, when a bunch of drag queens run down 17th street and a very crowded populus watches on.

unfortunately, i didn't see much (too crowded), and i got my camera stolen/lost to boot (sad sad sad). i'm already in the process of buying a new one, but at least i got to see a hairy fat man wearing a thong. weeee.

i wouldnt go as far as to say "Flame and Destruction" on Devils Night, or as we call it mischief night... but i did wake up to see everyone's house toilet papered this morning except ours... thats probably a good thing... but who knows these days... parents are letting their kids tb thier own yard so they dont do it else where... where the fun in that?

I can't believe I missed that... I stupidly chose to go to bed early and catch up on sleep.
