Being that I recently opened up my laptop to discover she no longer had a breath of life in her, and my inability to either pay for the poor ol’ toshiba’s health care or buy a new one… I am currently using the local town library’s public computer. The 30 min. limit makes it tricky to catch up on my other bloggy pals and write for lilpaula as well. What I’m trying to say is, sorry in advance for the lack of substance in these early posts as I work up some financial support to pay for a.) a new computer; b.) a new car and c.) a place to live. AHHHHH. No, this girl ain’t stressed out at all right now.
Anywho… I just had to ask any readers a very important question about this evening’s special holiday. What are you doling out to the lil ones? I can remember the scariest halloweens growing up were those whose houses attempted to dish us out apples and raisins and even those DREADFUL places that offered floss and toothbrushes. Now I am, for the most part, a relatively shy, meditation practicing, kind and loving person. But I just can’t sit quietly and let this form of torture continue without first advocating for these little children who, for ONE night out of an entire 365 days is FINALLY allowed to play dress up and run around neighborhoods schelpping pillowcases (yes, that is the only/best candy-carrying device and accumulate as much sugary goodness as possible. I understand your concern for the health of the kiddies, but if you get this message before passing out heart rate monitors and vitamins, perhaps you still have enough time to prevent yourself from being the most avoided house on the block by stocking up on some regular or king sized bars and save yourself from embarassment. Kid’s will IDOLIZE YOU!! Remember… this day only comes once a year.
