Happy Halloween!!!

So we had our big halloween party at work today and it totally rocked! I made part of the costumes for my team and they were a big hit, so much so we won second in the costume contest. 
I'm totally happy with that - the guy who won first really had a killer costume, full armor, cloak and everything.  

My friend Mike went as Altair from Assassin's Creed -that was an awesome costume too. Really, everyone did a great job, it was really impressive. 

I think the best part was the impromptu dance off between Alex - who came as Rocky and Bullwinkle and Josh who was a homonculus. I was planning to dance with them but I stared laughing with delight so hard I had to stop. It was a really great party. 

Then I found out I got a freelance job I really really really wanted - more info on that soon - and on top of that I had a great Taekwondo class. 

Since this day can't get any better I'm going to take a bath and go to bed!

I am a bad daughter

So, I got an email today from my Mom. Apparently I had forgotten not one but two birthdays, my mom's and my dad's. 

The thing is normally I'm really good at the whole birthday thing. I like shopping for cards and sending them out early - complete with witty sayings.  I was shocked, not just that I had forgotten, but that it took an email to remind me. 

Needless to say, there was a phone call with much apologizing and groveling. After that my mom and I had a great conversation, up until she told me one of my favorite uncles had a stroke.  He's doing ok, but it's scary.  He's this great big  bear of a guy, native Alaskan. The kind of guy who's always laughing and getting in trouble.  I can't really imagine my aunt without him.  It looks like he's going to be ok, so maybe I won't have to for a while.

The Bandwagon, I am on it.

I think I'm the last person in the world to start a blog.  See this whole time I've been telling people that I don't think anyone would care what I had to say, of course the truth is I'm a lousy typists and I'm totally afraid of people judging me. 

But a dear friend of mine started a weight-loss blog, and while I'm totally not that brave I figured I could at least share my opinions on the important things, movies, TV, my cats.  Maybe that wont go horribly wrong.

Wish me luck.
