Warning: Sappiness Ahead

Here I was all worried about Chunky having a craptacular Halloween. I've decided I just don't know this city well enough to go out trick or treating. The Mad Scientist pulled a major guilt trip on me over the phone last night for not taking him trick or treating. The Mad Scientist hasn't spent enough time down here to realize that San Antonio is a whole different ball game compared to relatively podunk Lansing.

But I digress.

When I got home I had a package slip on my door. It was a sweet little Halloween package from Chunky's newest buddy Cpurl. In it were some Halloweenie treats and a sack of these gooey rubber bugs, worms, and severed ears, noses, and tongues. Super gross, but as you can see, he loved them:


She also sent me some gorgeous Socks That Rock yarn. Scroll down on her blog til you see the Love-in-Idleness color. She's a much better yarn pornographer than I am.

Chunky made the remark "Gee mom, she must know you like yarn." Hee hee!

Ok, here's where I get sappy.

Seriously, what kind of nuthouse would I be in if I didn't have y'all to listen to me bitch about life and witness the quirkiness that manifests itself in the form of yarn balls having sex or coats made of bags? You help keep me sane, whether I be toiling under the tyranny of The Man or doing the single mom thing 1500 miles away from me.

Stay tuned peeps, tomorrow is my one year blogiversary. And of course you can't have a blogiversary without having presents to give away right?

I can't remember what it was like not to have you around, I don't want to remember it! I think you've missed the point though, we like you insane.

Chunky looks no worse for the wear...fill up a bag of candy and let him run wild around outside, he won't miss a thing. It's all about the running and the candy anyway.

So glad blogland keeps you connected to your sanity. And I mean that term loosely.

Yay for Cpurl! I don't blame you for not taking him TorTing, it doesn't sound suitable at all. You can still have loads of fun at home.

How about going to the local mall to trick or treat? That's what I've seen advertised around here...

Though around here even the bars have glass bowls of candy to give out...

Oh, very sweet :) I know what you mean about neighbourhoods. There is no way I would take W trick-or-treating where we live. We go up to the in-laws where I feel much safer.

CPurl rocks! Chunky looks perfectly happy with the Halloween you're giving him. I wouldn't worry. TorTing is overrated anyway. Think of all the crap candy you aren't having to throw out.

Isn't CPurl awesome?

Take Chunk to my mom and dad's house, or to North Star Mall!

I was going to say, is there a mall or a zoo you can take chunky too? Lots of places in cities have free safe halloween events
