Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

It's Halloween!

Gabby and I are ready for some ghouls and goblins. Hoping that many stop by the casa this evening. The candy and snacks are loaded and stacked neatly by the door. Now we just need to doorbell to start dinging.

Unfortunately, they'll be stopping by during my Cowboys big game against Texas. It's in Stillwater, Halloween night, orange and black and ...... geez. This could be a really big win. Or a heart breaker. Or a blowout. All I can say is GO POKES! Beat Texas!!

A 7 p.m. game time sure makes the day drag along. All I can think about is wishing I was in Stillwater.

My friend Toby's birthday was yesterday. He would have been 45. He's still missed.

Went to a party last night. A coworker and husband hosted. Lots of fun costumes and predictable ones ... gangstas, witches, nuns, vampires, rockers ... sexy and scary .... fun and silly. I was a banana.

Sexy Lady sent Gab and me some tasty bread she made. Yummy! Pumpkin/zucchini. Just 24 hours later and there's only two slices left. That Gabby just can't curb her appetite.

Mom turns 82 today. Happy Birthday! And Happy Halloween!!

Random Thoughts On Oct. 21, 2009

Still alive. Sorry for the vanishing act.

Gasoline has slowly been crawling upward. Sitting around $2.49 right now.

Gabs is doing great. We were a little sad at her annual. It was in September. She's been working hard to top 8 pounds. Didn't happen. Only about 7.5 pounds. She's accepted the fact that she might always be little. I've accepted the fact that she deserves more gluten-free moist food.

In typical fashion, my Cowboys beat Georgia in the season opener and left me all hopeful. Garnered a No. 5 ranking. Then went off and lost to unranked-at-the-time Houston. It's been an upward climb. The Homecoming win over MU was nice. Especially since the "stars" are not playing. The team is stepping up their game. It all likely means they'll go off and lose to Baylor this week. Or get blown out 65 to 3 against Texas on Halloween night.

Went to D.C. in September. A great trip.

My nephew and sister was in KC in October. A great visit. I've been missing them lately. Took them to visit Eponine's grave. They laughed at me a little, but also appreciated me.

Kristin won the Emmy! I still can't believe it.

Work is OK. A weird bag of politics, tasks, deadlines ... you know the routine. Plugging along.

Annual charity gala for Spofford this past Friday night was very successful. Lots of fun. I accidentally won a live-auction item. Very Seinfeld like.

That's all for now.
