Weird Science

The haunted driveway struck terror in the hearts of children throughout the seaside village of Rockland during Halloween 2006.
When it was done with that it struck terror in the hearts of the clean-up crew.
This year's theme was a double feature of Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space and Bride of the Atom. There had been plans to build some sort of crazy scientific aparatus like a Tesla coil or a Van de Graaff generator, but that went up in smoke (heh). I still have hope that we'll have something like that in the future, but this year I had to make do with low-tech colorful vinegar and baking soda explosions (and even then I never managed to get the timing quite right- the most impressive display was for my eyes only all over the kitchen counter). Ahhh yes, the life of a mad scientist is one part inspiration and 2 parts 409.

Next year, I am coming to Rockland for Halloween -- just to dress up and play in your yard. Tell me the name of decent B&B in the area.
