Solemn Samhain, Happy Hallowe'en
Today is actually probably my favorite annual holiday. Candy and craziness. Tis all good. I wish I spent more time doing costumes and whatnot but I admit I don't really go out anymore, so I just don't go bonkers. Today, I, at the last minute, decide to go as the ocean and so threw on my blue, Minoan-inspired bathrobey thing and declared, "I'm the ocean!" So far no one has challenged this; then again no one has actually seen me.
Boxer gets to go a little more crazy, what with being a preK teacher and all. He is going as a Jack O'Lantern in a very cute and goofy costumer that I hope his kids find adorable. When he put it on today, I had to say in great wonder, "You look just like Charlie Brown." If I can snag a picture, you can be sure I will be a posting it!
