halloween: Jay Leno Yourself - 10/22/09 06:30 AM
Jay Leno Yourself
I believe Picnik.com needs to start a Jay Leno look alike contest.
The Ogrevision effect on Picnik.com allows you to blow up various parts of your body.  Keep it clean....  I was trying to plump up my lips with Ogrevision....
Instead I slipped and had a long witchy chin. Longer and witchier than "for real."
hmmmmmm big Ogreish chin?
Then with just a little work....
Voila a Jay Leno chin
Jay Leno Yourself with Picnik.com
Ogrevsion is unfortunately a premium feature so you'd have to pay to play, if Picnik did a Jay Leno Look Alike Contest.

Maureen McCabe - Trick or Treat 2009 in Central Ohio
I hate writing events posts and I was putting off going looking for Trick or Treat for Columbus, Dublin, Grandview Heights, Gahanna, Hilliard,  Lewis Center, Powell, Upper Arlingto, Westerville and Worthington.
Procrastinate long enough and you can just link to a site like Columbus Parent's Magazine's Kids Linked who has the list of Columbus area Trick or Treat times!

halloween: Confused in Columbus... Trick or Treat - 10/28/08 11:37 PM
or just ready to Trick or Treat a couple of nights?
School district boundary lines, mailing addresses in parts of Central Ohio can be confusing. 
The Trick or Treat 2008  schedule from the Columbus Dispatch.
Today's  Families trapped in trick-or-treating limbo     in the Columbus Dispatch seems a tad dramatic to me... Live in a neighborhood in the city of Columbus but that neighborhood is in Dublin (or New Albany or Hilliard ) school district...  Kids can Trick or Treat in their own neighborhood on Halloweeen and do dress rehearsal the night before? I'm sure the kids aren't stressed by the idea.

No I'm not asking if you have enough candy for Trick or Treat (Columbus - Trick or Treat 2008) or even if you have a costume for the HighBall Haloween Masquerade in the Short North on Friday.
Happy Halloween Central Ohio watch your back

Yes that was the 2007 Zombie Advisory.... from Common Craft. It could happen again this year.
Things to remember.... 
Highest point in Ohio Bellefontaine? Or just east of Bellefontaine.  Hi Point in Ohio  1549 feet above sea level is probably not going to do it...

The Columbus Dispatch has a list of most Central Ohio Communities - Central Ohio Halloween 2008
Trick or Treat is again on Halloween in Columbus this year.  For years “Beggars Night” or “Trick or Treat” was NOT on Halloween in many Central Ohio communities but was a day or so before depending on what day of the week the “holiday” fell on.  A few years back the city of Columbus moved Trick or Treat to Halloween.
Trick or Treat is not after dark... or maybe it is dark by 8:00 PM now...

not my dog Buddy. Buddy does not like wearing costumes.  
The winner Raul an English Bulldog won the Columbus Dispatch's 2007 Pet Costume Contest, dressed as Henry VIII complete with wives heads (they look like Barbie Doll heads to me. ) Raul's costume really is creative.
