I hope you all had a fun, safe Halloween! I spent it with greenspine
. We took her adorable daughter - and niece, and friends' children - tick-or-treating and then there was pumpkin pie and "Supernatural" and it was wonderful good fun.
Got back to Milwaukee a little before 9 am. Lovely, quiet morning. Bought apples and frozen pie crust on the way home. As long as I have the spices on hand (and I do!), it costs so much less to make the pie than to buy it pre-made, and this way my apartment smells heavenly. Just a few people stumbling to their cars, still in costume. Awesome. And I got a really good parking spot! (This is a big deal.)
Went through all the nominated yuletide
fandoms and made lists of the ones for which I could write, and the ones I'd like written for me. This, I'm hoping, will prevent me from doing anything rash when sign-ups open. Just need to narrow my WANT list down to four. (It's at eight right now.)
All caught up on my tv. Now I really have no excuses not to get to work on my paper, which is due tomorrow evening. Making a paper due Sunday is just beastly, IMO.
Oh, I know it's a day late, but wanna see something scary? Palin doesn't understand the First Amendment.
Palin says she's ready to lead, should McCain win (unlikely at this point, but still) and snuff it. Palin, how can you be ready to give your solemn oath that you'll protect and defend the Constitution of the United States if you don't even know what's in it?ETA:
Salon seems to be having some issues, so if the linked page is blank, ( here's the text )
