we had more than our usual share of trick-or-treaters tonight, which always makes me happy. the elementary school around the corner always has a festival, with games and prizes and candy, so we don't get a lot of kids out on the streets. tonight, we had more than we've had in years past...maybe it's because of the later time change date...it's lighter later, and they hit us before and after the festival. and there were more older kids, too....i think the word's out around the neighborhood that we give candy to anyone who comes in a costume to the door.....
i carved three pumpkins---i'm a pretty artistic person, and have sold my crafts at fairs and shows, and make good money at it. but, whatever talent i have does not manifest itself in pumpkin carving. they are the sorriest three jack o'lanterns i think i've ever done, and that's saying a lot. but, they still did their job admirably, guiding kids to our door. poor guys, they gave their lives and ended up so ugly, and not even scary-ugly, just ugly.....
all this talk of josh coming to disneyland has gotten me and my pal, kathi, working on a scheme to get down there. i have a party i need to attend that same night, in a town just over from anaheim, so i'm hoping to kill two birds with one stone. we are waiting to hear if josh will be taped during the day (i hope, i hope, i hope), so i can do both things. and, i get to go to disneyland, a place i just adore. i know magic mountain has the more-thrilling rides, but i love disneyland the best. i love, love, love star tours...it really feels like you're floating in space when you drop out the door!!! and the indiana jones ride and of course, pirates of the caribbean, are just amazing. i want to see the Haunted Mansion, too. i hope we can coordinate all we need to do, and hear that we will be allowed to attend the taping if we are just regular guests of the park. they have to have the streets lined with people for a parade, right??? otherwise, it's just a guy on a float sailing down an empty street. i'm hoping josh has to tape it a few times, so we'll get to see him as long as possible. but first, get there, and get in.....we're waiting for more info to come down the chute....
i called borders today to check to see if i could have my Noel poster....last year, when, "awake" came out, they let me have the CJ when the CD had only been out a week, so i thought they might let the poster go quickly, as well. but my now-best-buddy at Borders told me they'd have the Noel poster up til at least the second week of December. He said he had my name on a post-it stuck to his computer, and he'd call me...i never gave him my name, but he told me what it was, so i know he does, indeed, have my name and number....sweet!!! he's the same guy who let me have the CJ....gotta love him...
so, are you ready for the onslaught of xmas commercialism that is going to hit the airwaves now??? i'm not ready for christmas. i don't want to deal with thinking about it just yet. i love the holidays, it's not that, but i feel it's being crammed down my throat. i'll take down my halloween stuff on saturday, when i have a chance, and then put up the thanksgiving stuff....and enjoy that for three weeks...we have an early thanksgiving this year....
hope you all had a safe and fun halloween....bye
