November 1st, Rabbits for everyone!
And have I accomplished anything? Pfft, of course not. I have made good progress on Cloud Atlas (David Mitchell), and am loving it. It will probably be a very long time before I see the movie, but that's probably for the best.
Oh, and our community actually observed Trick or Treat night on--Halloween! It's so often on the Thursday before the actual day. And we might have had 10 little ones come to call, and they were all so quiet and shy... I seem to remember walkin' the block with quite the crowd and shouting when doors opened. And sadly, there were no memorable costumes, all store-bought fare. Afraid it wasn't a very entertaining time for me. The only mildly amusing aspect was that Ekim was busy in the garage, changing his oil, and was interrupted about three times, trying to explain to these kiddos that they were actually supposed to go knock on the door. Y'know, Trick or Treat! and all that. Methinks this game is not quite translating across the generations.
Tomorrow is my last day off, and then I have the weekend, and then, sadly, it's back to work. Things are slowly getting better staff-wise. For us, this coming week will be called Two Birthdays and The Election, with the latter being the sticky stuff in the middle. I'll be so glad when it's over. The election, I mean! There's absolutely nothing wrong with birthday dinners, I'm all for them!
So, rabbit, rabbit, good luck in November, everyone!
p.s. the birthdays are my MIL's and her son's, who is also known as Ekim, but everyone calls him Mike.
