Today is Halloween, blahdeeblahblah. I am to this day as Scrooge is to Christmas. Real life is scary enough, thank you very much. Today I was visited by a superhero

and someone calling herself "Downtown Julie Blonde."

And I found some timely costume options, should you need any last-minute ideas for uncomfortable ensembles to don before trunk-or-treating. (This appears to be a church custom I was until now unfamiliar with, wherein children safely beg for candy from strangers' cars, as opposed to their doorsteps.)

Barack Obama

Joe Biden

John McCain

Sarah Palin

Here's to the weekend, and all of the intense sleeping it promises.

I am a work in progress. I perpetually need a hair cut. I'm totally devoted to my remarkable nieces and nephew. I am an elementary home cook and a magazine worker bee. (Please criticize my syntax and spelling in the comments.) I think my dog is hilarious. I like chicken and spicy things. I have difficulty being a grown-up. Left to my own devices, I will eat enormous amounts of cheese snacks of all kinds.
