The Heat is On

I have succumbed to the cooler weather. I shouldn't really complain since the last weeks have been warm, and Saturday was downright balmy. But now I have turned on the heat and so comes the stuffy air and the high electric bill.

This past weekend, I had a great time at Joey and Cheryl's fabulous Halloween party! I even won two prizes!!! The chocolate skull is just too cool looking to eat. My pals, Kate and Gene, stayed with me and it was fun to catch up with them. I miss them even if they are much, much closer than where they were before. I also greatly appreciate their help with my costume -- as the surviving member of the Donner Party (Donner Party of One). Gene won first place for his costume -- Raggedy Andy Warhol. I told a colleague of mine about his costume and she laughed her ass off. She said she could immediately visualize it.

Well, the semester is heating up (to keep with the theme of this post). I am taking over another class for the rest of the semester, and I have a lot of stuff to do between now and the end.

Happy Halloween you ghoulies and ghosties.

I am quite pleased that I was able to instill in your colleague the desire and ability to experience buttoxal fallapart.

Was this the colleague I'm thinking of? If so she hasn't much buttoxal to lose!

It was great to see you as always, Miss Wendy! Thanks for putting us up and feeding us. We'll make an excuse to get together soon. You have to come see our new home town. We have such sights to show you...

Kate: nope, different colleague but I could imagine the other reacting the same way.
