Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

It is Halloween Night. The candles in the jack-o-lanterns are lighted. Very soon my "treat" will be a scotch and water.

Appropriate to the season, I have begun to read The Path of the Green Man: Gay Men, Wicca, and Living a Magical Life, by Michael Thomas Ford (Kensington Press, 2005). I'm not very far into it, but it's interesting to read what Ford has to say about what Wicca has to offer gay men as a spiritual path.

My lights are lit, including the jack-o-lanterns in the side windows, and I've ended spooky season by watching the original 1978 "Halloween".

Wow! Incredible!

I'm dressed in my witch's hat and managed to get three kids to take some candy by going into the street and begging them to take it off my hands.

Good pick, Chuck! I thought about Halloween for Halloween. Instead, I went with The Dead Zone, a Christopher Walken movie based on a Stephen King novel. I remember thinking the novel was OK, don't remember the movie. It's only just OK. I got halfway through it last night and while the plot is interesting it's very slow paced. I'll try to finish it tonight, though.

My lights are lit

So which one is correct? In school we learnt that the verb "light" is irregular and the past and perfect tenses are "lit", but maybe not anymore?

Technically, both are correct.  Some feel that "lighted" is more correct...
