Children of Valdez,
I am sorry I neglected to pick up candy this year. However, the fact that my porch light is off tonight means I will not be answering my door, no matter how much pounding and yelling you do. Screaming "Hey, you got trick-or-treaters out here" makes me want to open the door even less.
I am nursing myself through my first bloody nose of the season, I am tired, I just got off work, and I am hiding from you. Go away.
The Halloween Grinch
Seriously, does no one teach their kids Halloween porch light etiquette these days? For shame!
I just received a message in my junk folder from "Microsot" saying that my email ID was chosen for something. I deleted it, of course, but I couldn't help envisioning Microsot as a tiny drunkard.
Yaaaar, happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! May yer weekend be filled with booty an' not wi' scurvy!
To all my American friends:
Happy Independence Day! And happy Saturday, for the rest of you! :)
I have Monday off, so I'm very excited. The last 3 hours of work yesterday seemed to drag on and on, as half of the office was taking the day off.
I have some big plans for this weekend, most notably 1) Vacuum, 2) Homework, and 3) Veg.
I have the feeling 3 will be the easiest to accomplish.
Summer was up for quite a while last night, as some people in the neighborhood decided to start the celebration early by setting off bottle rockets and poppers in the street. She disappeared around 10:30; I believe she was huddled in the bathroom, as that seems to be where she goes when she's freaked. But when I woke this morning, she was stretched out beside me on her blanket, dead to the world.
She's going to be even more distressed tonight. Poor baby.
Got to leave work a little early because we were having brownouts. Summer is looking a little wild-eyed. This is her first thunderstorm.
A tornado touched down about an hour south of me.
The traffic lights on the highway through town are out.
When I got home, there were a couple big tree limbs lying across the sidewalk; my neighbor said that one almost hit her boyfriend when he got home.
Fun times! I'm just hoping I'll be able to attend my seminar tonight without my electricity going out!
I hope all of you are keeping safe, warm, and dry!
