It's Friday night here and we're enjoying a quiet Friday night. Plus we have a three-day week-end due to the All Soul's and All Saint's days. Bliss!
Yay for you, got anything planned? or are you just going to relax?
yay, happy all souls and all saints day there emievil!
Same to you prettydarkhorse. Don't you miss halloween here in the Philippines?
Hope you can. Was planning to go to Manila this weekend to visit my father's grave but glad I didn't. There's another typhoon hitting the country this week-end.
oh dont travel anymore, might be too risky,,hope the typhoon will not hit hard this time...
Yup. Really hope so. Do you know in some areas, even the cemeteries were washed away? Now they are trying to locate the dead's bones and identify them. Bbbbrrrrr, not a good sight.
Not a good sight really,thats too bad also, here is different thogh, halloween parties and candies, trick or treat, I like trick better, it always work for me, lolol
Swap houses with me for the weekend then. Tomorrow night sees 4 firework displays within a mile of me making my living room sound like Beiruit, only surpassed by the 2 Alsations, 3 Jack Russells and a half breed dog all barking like crazy all night in the gardens either side of me.
Then last year I got into trouble, some silly kid called at the door waving a tin full of money so naturally I put my hand in and got enough for a bottle of wine, kids Dad was furious. Do you think maybe the kid was looking me to give money, I hate Halloween
oh that is funny....tomorrow I will go to my friends house near here, a Filipina too, we will go with other children and go trick or treat if it is not raining, then will buy candies for children too, but i love to switch house with you too Mr HealthTip
!! wish I'd seen the look on that boy's face!!
Have a good 3 day break Emi, not that you will get a break but have fun. !
I do actually give money to the ones that dress up but not to the lazy ones that actually call with say the hood of their jacket pulled up.
Although the dogs barking annoys me I do actually feel sorry for them as with their hearing it must really be worse for them so I blame their owners for not keeping them in for a few hours.
Jeeeez I am a grumpy old fart ain't I ?, no wonder nobody has invited me to their Halloween parties. My old gran was right when she said " Art for godsake smile you miserable lil git", I loved my old gran, so wise, great insight lol !
Uh oh, you just reminded me about my dogs who bark like crazy when they hear fireworks going off. Darn, have to think of ways to make them get use to the noise.
LOL, love your gran Art. She's wise all right.
LOLOL, that is really funny...your old gran never know how a smiley you are, ur just hiding it....
oh I so prefer the whiners at this time of the year than those with a determined 'oh am having such a great time' look and the fixed smiles, despite the obvious exhaustion on their faces!
come now let the dead rest in peace (no offence to your old gran!) and let's all go some place quiet for a drink away from all the dogs and chaos!
Ah but tis Halloween, witches and ghosts so my old Gran might just pop round for the night. As long as the old bag isn't waving a tin in my nose she's well welcome to watch the x factor, well unless she smells a bit.
As for the drink, now you are talking only I am cutting back
Well that just doesn't seem fair--a three day weekend. However, whatever you do, I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Mine will be trying to get another hub together, which is going to be very tough, require a lot of editing and time to consider content. Maybe a Halloween party. We'll see.
You are such a good writer, emievil. Am enjoying your hubs.
Best to you!
So, EMIE, what's it like in the future? It's not even lunch time here yet so you possess a full 12 hours of future wisdom over myself.
Omg tell me that's really Zad in that Avatar because I can't remember having a drink lol !
LOL zad. I can predict that.....I'm going to bed in an hour's time. It's already 11:00 pm here, Friday night!
Gotta go now. Sleepy already. Good night everyone. Have a happy week-end.
There's halloween in the philippines now? why do we keep copying other country's traditions?
Uhm, it's called commercialization. The suppliers / traders want to create a market for halloween products here in the country so they create the demand also. but I think only those that are well-to-do are copying it. The rest of us, mere mortals, still troop to the cemeteries .
Culture transfer or adaptation is not bad, it means we are not isolated, we will have our own version of it, if children will be happy then so be it...
Oh ok, you mean like how they celebrate octoberfest and cinco de mayo in the philippines also=)

I been comparing days lately and noticed that my traffic to my hubs seems to rise on friday to sunday, then it decreases on monday - about 1000-2000 views. Is that normal? It seems like it's a big drop number, but in actuality, it's only 20%.Anyone else have a drop on Mondays?
by John Coviello 5 years ago
I understand that on weekends people aren't sitting in front of their computers as much, so there are less searches and less hub views, but why does taffic to hubs dlow down on friday? Are that many people working a four day week, or is there some other reason. Any tips on how to boost...
