It's 'Boo at the Zoo' at Toronto Zoo while you are there. We took the kids to that a few years ago, they really enjoyed it and the great thing is that if they dress up, they get in free.

One small problem with that, on the 28th we're moving house. However, if you'd like to be introduced to the Canadian box carrying experience, I'm sure providing buckets of G n T would not present a problem.

Alternatively, I expect we'll be fed up with moving boxes by the 30th or so, something might then be arranged.

I don't think it'll work this time, thanks anyway, this move is likely to result in exhaustion. I expect my partner is around here somewhere, perhaps she'll think a social excursion is just what we'll need between loading and unloading but I rather doubt that!

Historically, "one drink" social excursions are never that.

Halloween demands planning. Ideally, costumes that are original and obviously home made, costumes that allow for many layers underneath and the ability to walk. Then you need an affluent area with small houses close together, the Beach, at least the relatively poor parts of the Beach is ideal; as well as meeting the above criteria it has lots of film people who put on a show. Cabbagetown, I dunno, large gay presence, may not be great distributors of sweeties. Be aware though that competition in these areas is stiff, I typically got a couple of hundred kids at the door.

So I've heard, a couple of posters go for a quiet beer and the next thing you know they're out together, mounted in public.
