Oh goodness, my brain is quite frazzled after grading lots and lots of papers. I’m currently sitting on my couch, huddled under two blankets (it’s coooooold!), listening to kids Trick-or-Treating outside. I just heard one boy shout at another: “HEY, ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE G.I. JOE? OR BATMAN?” Ha! If it wasn’t completely dark and extremely cold out, I totally would have run outside to sneak a peek at that costume. I mean, seriously, what sort of costume was the kid wearing? Combat fatigues with a cape? A military uniform with bat ears? Inquiring minds want to know!

Anyway, it’s time for a Halloween-ish post!

1) Halloween morning sky & trees. Such bittersweet ephemeral loveliness:


2) Some lovely leaves on my porch:


3) Dapper Mister Pumpkin says “OH HAI!”:


4) Clearly, Maru wasn’t pleased with his Halloween presents this year:

That’s understandable, though, as the only present he really wants is tuna. Lots and lots of tuna. His quest for tuna is positively Sisyphean!


5) Here’s baby me, dressed as a ballerina for Halloween. It’s probably from ’80, but I don’t know for sure:

I look a little bit like a tiny ballerina version of Don Corleone. See?:



6) I love watching It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown every year (the post’s title is one of Linus’s lines from it). I ♥ Linus. Aww!:


More soon! ♥

    Clearly, you haven’t talked to Jerry lately. Ask him how posting about a tip, or pi (pumpkin I can only imagine) worked out for him. =^_^=

    hope you mean tuna-flavoured cat food – tuna is very bad for cats!

    I love the Don Corleone the best. I totally agree.

    Awww…wittle Miwanda is cute as all hell! I think you’re snatching at that ribbon in your hair- “get this damned thing off me!!”

    But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you ask me to do murder for money.
