Or go here for the full shebang, thanks to Today's Style section.
I do not go out for Halloween, because the Brick feels strongly about it. And I understand that. In spite of several innocent aspects about it -- I trick-or-treated as a kid, and so did our girlies -- some take it to an evil level that shouldn't be messed with.
On the other hand, both Daughters #1 and #2, as well as Son #1, will enjoy dressing up and partying this weekend. Why not...if the beer stays in moderation. At least they don't participate in Boulder, Colorado's Naked Pumpkin Run.
Don't watch this, if you are offended by the sight of bouncing bits, but it really is what happened for a number of years. I believe the police shut it down...but you never know, in Boulder.
Stupid college kids.
We had a scraping of snow yesterday, and it's still chilly and overcast today. The Brick and I have been so busy that the chickens have had a temporary stay of execution. Fortunately, we've had plenty of stale bread and frozen pumpkin to give them, thanks to friends and neighbors. Probably this weekend, we'll Take Care of Business.
We've both been dealing with ear infections all week. The pressure's not fun, but the loss of balance is harder to deal with. I feel most embarrassed, going to the grocery store and tacking down the aisles like a drunken sailor, clutching at the shelves to steady myself. What do shoppers think: 'Can't she wait to go out drinking until afterwards?!?'
I have been busy signing and sending out paperwork this afternoon...including the contract for my new book:
Colorado's Haunted Front Range
Scary...but exciting! And the perfect time to begin.
