Howl....O - Ween

There are few places as frightening as the library on
Halloween. Lot's of little lion kings and princesses,
plastic clowns and home made cookie monsters. All
hopped up on candy and good times all under the age of
5 and brimming with cuteness.

So far little Cinderella approached me at the computer
finger stuck up her little nose to the knuckle to
inquire, rather loftily I might add as would befit a
princess, as to what I am doing and if she could be of
service. And little Harry potter keeps peering over at
me and bursting into tears before running away only to
begin the entire process again. Oh, and tiny Pat
Metheny, yes, Ross, I think the child was attempting
to be Pat Metheny or possibly the Hamburglar (it's
truly hard to tell the difference, honestly, you try
it!) almost tripped me on the stone steps. To be fair
that was when I really knew, in my heart of hearts,
that this whole library Halloween excursion was just a
plain old bad idea. But hind sight, as they say,
really is 20 20. So in I went. And here I am.




In the words of Zoolander's great Mugatu "I think I'm
taking crazy pills!"

Flight Attendants just do it better...

Flight Attendants just do it better than marines. We are, of course, talking about handling our liquor on airplanes, that is. Now, don't get me wrong, I love my marines! I LOVE bringing them home. But when certain East German layover city airports decide that they should open their arms and their airport bars to our boys, maybe they should consider not serve them Absinthe! Yes, my lovely marines, who have not seen a drop of alcohol in 6 months toasted beyond all belief on ABSINTHE on an airplane for many many hours. Imagine, if you will, an airplane filled with 350 or so marines that have seen neither a drop of alcohol or a civilian american woman in 6 months. Suddenly there are both. You can imagine. Let's just say, not pretty.

How will I ever get that smell of of my shoes?

From the mouths of babes...

From the Mouths of Babes...You all know Ross.

"If he's a young jew, then I'm a Martian!"
-Recounting his meeting with a fellow Doctoral student after finding his difficulty spelled Korean name was phonetically pronounced "Young Jew"

I have been off work for so long now, work just seems like a distant memory or a bad dream. I am off till at least the middle of October. I have created so many weird things to fill my time. My favorite is a new game that I like to call "Will Ross Eat It. " This game involves putting all kinds of random things in a pie crust, baking it and calling it quiche. And, of course, seeing if Ross will eat it. So far, I have found nothing that Ross will not eat if it is called a quiche. I reccomend playing this game with your friends and roomates. It's great fun.

This weekend Ross and I are going to play a new game. It's called "What can we stuff in one tent." As we are novices at this game we are starting easy. We are attempting to stuff Me, Ross, Princess and Fluffy all in the one tent somewhere on coastal Rhode Island. Some call it camping!

Lots of pictures next week!
