Earlier this evening I got tired of having to get off the couch every time the doorbell rang so I enlisted Cassidy to take a shift handing out Halloween candy to all the adorable little sugar fueled kids.
Cassidy: Why do parents of two year olds come to the door and get candy? They aren’t going to let the kids actually eat all that candy and most of the kids sit in a stroller on the sidewalk while the parents come to the door to get the candy.
Me: Cassidy, there’s only two reasons any adult willingly chooses to have kids. Only two. One is the tax break, the other is the Halloween candy.
Cassidy: That’s… horrible.
Me: Yeah, but the free chocolate makes you get over that pretty quick.
Me: You’re welcome.
Cassidy: For what?
Me: This enlightening life lesson.
Cassidy: Halloween is NOT about the kids? It’s about adults eating your candy when you go to bed?
In a more perfect world, these girls wouldn’t live 200 miles away from me.
How many days into NaBlPoMo do you think I’ll make it? My guess: 4
Set low standards. On day 5 I’ll be a winner while all the rest of you high standards people are weeping when you miss day 29.
God, I love my logic.
You guys! How was your Halloween? Mine was AWESOME. Mainly because I got to spend it with Julie who is one of my favorite people ON THE PLANET. Why you ask? Because she does stuff like this:
She glued individual hairs to her face. She doesn’t just dress up, she BECOMES her Halloween costume. People that know her had to ask if it was her.
Also, there might have been some alcohol involved.
Which might be why this happened:
I, like, am the most classy person you will ever know.
I’ve out a LOT of effort into being as lazy as possible this weekend. It was rainy and overcast and cloudy the couch was REALLY comfy and warm and inviting. Therefore rather than type up that dream I will leave you with pictures of the cat cuteness.
This picture says: “Sleep with one eye open.”
This one says: “Actually, take this, this is my good side.”
We’ve recently had to kick the cats out of the bedroom at night because they (and by they I mean Hans because KC is far to fat and lazy) have been jumping onto Ben’s dresser and scratching it. Hans likes to sit there by the window and lord over the back yard from high on his Perch of Greatness.
They both have ended up sleeping with Cassidy at night which she thinks is great! But about 4:45AM EVERY SINGLE DAY, they start to get a little antsy and pace the floor in front of our door yelling GET UP AND LET ME OUTSIDE, JERKS! By about 5:00AM Hans is doing backflips against the door in protest and when Ben opens it he’s like OMG I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD LET ME OUTSIDE HURRY I HAVE THINGS TO DO AND PLACES TO PEE AND WATER TO DRINK AND WHAT THE HELL TOOK YOU DO LONG HURRY HURRY HURRY THIS WAY I’LL SHOW YOU THIS DOOR OPEN IT OPEN IT OPEN IT HURRY HURRY!
And KC is like, thank GOD you got up to let that spaz out. Now, stop what you’re doing this instant and shower me with the love I deserve for being this amazingly cute.
I have to admit that sometimes it’s the part of the morning I look forward to the most and I get a little grin at how cute and different that cats can be. On Saturdays though, on Saturdays I start to wonder what exactly is involved in the making of cat stew…
Have I mentioned lately how much I love Halloween? The silly immature 10 year old in me still thinks it’s awesome that once a year I get to play dress up. HEEHEE
HALLOWEEN 2008: NON SKANKY KINDA EMO-ISH GOTHY WITCH GIRL I’m just kinda throwing this stuff together. The wig, some badass huge false lashes, some little spiders to put in my hair and probably a black shirt or dress and shoes.
HALLOWEEN 2006: SKANKY DEVIL It took three days to wash that crap out of my hair but but it was pretty badass. Also, I still love those tacky red lashes.
HALLOWEEN 2007: SKANKY WITCH! I think I’ll wear that hat again! LOVE IT.
