Trick-or-treating in Paragon City over the weekend: big fun! Also, with a good, full group, not a bad way to get some experience. And man, for he next couple days, everyone will have *awesome* Inspirations queued up to use. Plus, a few rocks for tanks to throw.

I never did get to 'arrest' the Great Pumpkin, however. *sniff sniff* No exciting badge for me.

But man, what was up with the bondage vampires? I'm totally tempted to make one as a character, if I can track down a good screenshot. Sadly, I don't think the Spencer's Gifts witches will work as well.

Today's mystery!

As my long-time readers know, I always carry around scraps of paper and a pen to write down notes. This is, in fact, how I function in life. If I lose these notes, I am invariably screwed. But from time to time, my bad memory (or old-fashioned b00ze) makes me forget why I wrote down said tiny cryptic note. (It doesn't help that said scraps get carried around for weeks if not months.)

Today's example is a prime one. At the party on Saturday night, I wrote down "sow-hin wa-ha-gut". I have no idea what that means, or what I am supposed to do with it. This is a sad state of affairs.

But while I have you all here, happy All Saints' Day, for those of you who are into that sort of thing.
