6 Happy Things for Halloweenies

by - Saturday, November 01, 2014

1. "She is an ache in the stomach when I am away from her." -Richard Burton on Elizabeth Taylor- I just thought that quote was really sweet and lovely.
2. Former Bond Girls who sell Nude Paintings now- It's a wonderful world we live in. Just so weird.

 3. Small kids in costumes- I really love all these skunks and dragons, though my favorites this year were Cindergrella and one of the box head guys from Minecraft. So cute!
4. Voting! We found multiple very helpful Seattle voting information sites online (just to get historical perspectives on the conflicts and to check the narratives we had heard against something else). Did everyone else get to voting too?

5. Our eyeball chandelier- Spooky. Scary. We really committed everything to our breezeway to try to scare children. Based on their threats later, I am going to guess we didn't succeed, based on their threats later.
6. Almost 10 trick or treaters! So apparently all the kids in our neighborhood go as a group, which is awesome, but it also means that the whole event took about 30 seconds. That was a bit of a bummer. Still, it was neat to actually have people come, and it was fun to see all the neighborhood kids dressed up and excited, even if they did want me to smell their feet.

One of the kids who came was allergic to dairy and I didn't have any candy for him. I felt horrible, and I have been thinking about going to buy something and take it over to their house. Too weird?
