Fall has fallen on me

I hope you all had a safe and scary Halloween. Ours was wonderful as usual. Miles had the day off from school since the 31st is also Nevada Day. We headed out first thing in the morning to grab a few pumpkins to carve and a few extra bags of candy. Miles was/is feeling under the weather so I didn’t expect him to want to do much. Mostly he hung around in his costume and handed out candy to the neighborhood kids with his dad. He wasn’t too let down because we had a smashing party at his school on the 30th with a really extraordinary scary parade. I watched BRAVO count down the scariest movie moments with my sister, Diane. All and all – a pretty nice night.

Now we are getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, already!!! Where did the year go?

Interesting news, though, my step-father-in-law just had open heart surgery and that sort of throws my holiday plans into a spiral. Brett and I are talking about MAYBE going away for Thanksgiving – maybe renting a cabin or something. I am sure Miles would love it; so it is a real possibility.

Birthday and bright wishes

Today is my sister’s birthday so much fun will be had. There is a lovely restaurant called The White Chocolate Grill that she likes to attend so we will take her there for the festivities. There shall be much rejoicing.

In other news, I have HAD it with Stephine Meyer. I just want to smack the shit out of her. I didn’t bother finishing The Host. It was just too impossibly bad to believe and what is her obsession with young girls and older men? Edward may be frozen at 17 forever but lets face it – he is closer to 100 than 17 in actual YEARS and the couple, in her DREADFUL attempt at literature The Host, are 17 and 26. What the??? I know other people see this – I am not taking crazy pills. It seems ODD that’s all…oh YEAH and I forgot about the wolves imprinting on INFANTS. That is such an ewwwww gross I don’t even like to think about it. I must have blocked it.

I loved Twilight. I liked New Moon and Eclipse. I thought Breaking Dawn was a horrible piece of dung. So I am one of those idiots who are changing time and space and I am pretending there isn’t a book called Breaking Dawn. As far as I am concerned, the books are a trilogy and it ENDS with Eclipse. And that is the last of it, as well. I am not talking about it anymore until Nov when the movie comes out.
