Merry Christmas!

The stores are picked clean, there is nothing left for Halloween. The Christmas season has begun and stores are fully stocked and decorated. There is a vote in the senate to ratify an ammendment to officially skip Thanksgiving. That way, retailers will have one more full day of sales before December 25.

Last Minute Costume Ideas For Grown Ups

It's 5:45 pm on the Friday before Halloween. Do you need to come up with an adult (not XXX, you dirty) costume for a party?
If so, you're in luck. I have a couple of ideas.

You can go as:

1. George W.,
Just get a bucket of sand and stick your head in it for the entire party.

2. Laura Bush and/or Katie Holmes,
(or as in "Brangelina," call yourself "Bush-ho" or " KatBush," you get the idea).
Put on a classy outfit and overmedicate. Smile!

3. Madonna and Child
...no not the CHRISTMAS one silly, the one with the new African baby!

4. LiLo (aka Lindsay Lohan).
Get a wax. Go commando. In a dress.

Full Moon in the Mountains

There was a full moon in the mountains of North Carolina this past weekend and I predict it will remain in place until about November 1st.

I'll be right back

There will be a lapse in postings for the next few days because this little Grinch is going on...Holiday!
I know, I know, it's a little early in the blogging process to be taking a break already, jeez you just can't find good help anymore.
Oh well, la dee da...I'm outta here! Please make yourself at home and drop me a line. I'll be back with a vengance, and that's a promise!

Halloween on Madison Avenue

Holiday mood: Grumpy

...Only because I'm new to this and have wasted many, many hours trying to post a photo on this blog. Set up a Flickr account and everything, but Blogger is being uncooperative. Any advice?

Looks like bagworms or toilet paper

What's up with that fake cobwebby stuff on the bushes anyway?

It's Friday the 13th

What better day to start this HOLIDAY blog, than on Friday the 13th of October...an auspicious kickoff to the next upcoming holiday...HALLOWEEN. Spooky, I know.
Actually Halloween is not really a grinchy holiday. it's fairly stress-free. Well, not quite stress-free to parents with small, unreasonable children. You know, those who have purchased THE cutest and most expensive costume on the planet only to have their child loudly, passionately and tearfully declare they will NOT be caught dead wearing THAT. Or perhaps not quite stress-free for adults who have waited too long to think of anything clever to wear to a costume party (it sounded like a good idea at the time) and end up in a freaking sweat at 8:00 pm on October 30 at Ricky's, or Target...or even worse, WalMart.
Face it, even the most benign holidays can make us come unglued...and that's what this blog is all about. Well, that and any other holiday observations that come to mind. I hope you'll come back!
