So I had no vampire costume and she wanted me to be one as well. We got her ready for school in a costume (Elaine's brilliant) and then I promised I would get stuff for this evening.
I went to the drug store in the middle of the day, madhouse. I grabbed a cape and some teeth and some "horror make up." And I made myself a vampire that did please my daughter.
And then we did our meal after school. Elaine's idea. She said our daughter was not going to go trick or treating on an empty stomach. That she needed food so candy was a snack and not a meal. Good point.
So we had salad and pizza and planned the evening and then did our trick or treating. Which she loved. She wanted to do all the knocking. It was as if she didn't think she'd get candy if I knocked for her. :D
She cleaned up. When she gets older, I hope she has better taste in candy!
She had Snickers, M&Ms, Whoppers and other good candy. She loved Sugar Babies (I hate those) and candy corn. I think she liked candy corn because of the look of it. She thought it was pretty.
After those? Lolly pops. It's like she has no appreciation for chocolate! :D
But she had fun.
News wise, all that stands out really is War Criminal Colin Powell's being used in a radio ad for Barack's re-election campaign. They have no ethics. Shame on any Democrat who thinks I-Lied-To-THe-UN Powell is someone to embrace.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Chaos and violence continue, kebabs are out, al Qaeda is back, corruption never left Iraq, nor did US troops (despite Beecroft's claims otherwise), we look at Benghazi, terror and more.
Save us all from the sexism. Last night, Ann, Marcia, Ava and I weighed in on a sexist get-out-the-vote ad and I would have hoped that lengthy piece could be it on the topic for a bit. But sexism never ends, instead it seems to roll in with the tide.
Yesterday's snapshot noted Nussaibah Younis' "Time to Get Tough on Iraq" (New York Times) which is an important column. And one of many important pieces of writing Nussaibah's contributed over the years -- such as at England's Guardian newspaper. But today Jacob Hornberger (Media With Conscience News) decides to 'tackle' the article in the way only certain men can -- by completely misunderstanding everything about the article and about Nussaibah. So when Hornberger writes of Nussaibah, "He wants the U.S. government to get tough . . ."?
