HELLO EVERYBODY. Thats me in the grainy web cam image on the left. I pulled the QuickCam Pro 4000 out for the first time in over a year and decided to play around with it. As you can see there is our recently renovated living room in the back ground, including the gate that cages our pet human, Deven.
I just uploaded a dozen or so pics to my Flickr account. Why does it take me so long to do this? I’m lazy. I can’t finish anything I start. Aside from the depressing post I wrote earlier today and this one, I have 5 other posts in my draft, all of them I started and just didn’t finish.
Anyway, I decided to post again to sort of, I don’t know, reset the depressing mood I set earlier. The weather outside is wonderful. If I had the strollers at home, I would so take Deven out walking. I love the fall.
My favorite part of fall is Halloween. I was look at costumes earlier and I came across this little ditty. Normally I wouldn’t go for something sexy, but I figured since I never dress even remotely sexy anymore since becoming a mom and putting on a weight, that I should reserve one day a year to be hot. I’m not hideous or fat, I’m still young, I should freakin celebrate. What’s more halloween than Wednesday Addams?
And of course, I can’t leave Deven out. Last year he was a pumpkin, of sorts, and we took him out trick or treating even though he was only 6 weeks old and slept the entire time. This year, I’m hoping he’ll still be able to walk some of the way, even though he wont be able to eat any of the candy. So, I was thinking perhaps a monkey? Or a Bee? Or a disgruntled UPS worker? Get him started on a career path early. You and I both know making our kids look disgustingly cute is the real reason moms celebrate Halloween, and I can not discount myself from that group. I am guilty, and I look forward to the resentment in later years.
RenFest is also coming up. We’re thinking about taking Vance’s birthday off to go, and this year we can take Deven! I was thinking we could take Valerie (Vance’s mom) with us so she can help alleviate the stress of bringing a toddler. I can’t wait to get drunk, gorge myself on turkey legs, and watch the jousting. Too bad my costume doesn’t fit me anymore Maybe I can find a new one!
Anyway, I’m going to get myself a shower and perhaps some lunch. Mmm, grilled cheese sammich with 3 kinds of cheese. Thats some gourmet shite right there.
