Fun on a Stick

This it what comes from letting Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan head up a brainstorming session for Target pool toys.
Their competitor, Vlad the Impaler, declined to comment

Get used to Disappointment

Never too early to learn the frustration that comes with being a Seahawks fan.

Why I Rarely Post Anymore

Ahh blogging. I have missed it so. I have plenty of excuses for not keeping up with this little online diary, but the truth is, besides everything baby, I don't have much else to say.

It's not that I don't love the mommy thing. I do! I just don't think anyone else finds my baby world as interesting as I do. We have all sat through people droning on about the cute things their baby just did, or their infants digestive health, or the difference between breastfeeding and bottle feeding and the advantages and disadvantages of the pacifier. Oh dear god I am boring myself! Even I don't find me interesting.

I love being a mom. Everyday I wake up surprised to see this strange and beautiful creature that is mine. (I suppose I would be even more surprised to wake up and find a creature that wasn't mine). I have everything I have ever wanted and while I am soooo happy to have wonderful husband, a great stepkid, a happy healthy baby, supportive friends and family and a fun job....well it doesn't make for a very amusing blog post...sorry

Okay the other reason I haven't posted is I usually have a baby in my arms. That makes posting one sentence on Facebook way more convenient that typing a coherant essay on blogger.
Facebook is just faster and easier and requires less attention span. Facebook is like the USA Today of personal online posting.

Halloween Greetings from Gatchaman, Minnie Mouse and Monkey

This is the second Halloween in a row that I have not been sick! I am almost always sick on Halloween. I think it might be some psychosomatic way of getting out of the dressing up thing. I think when you work in the theatre you either love to wear costumes on Halloween or it just feels redundant. I am one of those theatre people that has never really enjoyed dressing up for Halloween. I am also one of those theatre people who doesn't really enjoy Karaoke.

I think the Halloween excitement thing is kinda catchy though. I am enjoying it as of late. I chalk that up to having a husband and a stepson who excitedly plan out their costumes months in advance. Mark had four fittings for his Gatchaman costume. (hand made by my friend Marta) He has wanted to be the 70's superhero since he was a four year old in Japan. Feeling a little lame at not having come up with anything to wear last night, I threw together a last minute Minnie Mouse costume. It was my attempt at festivity, It didn't really matter what I wore because when you are holding a baby in a monkey costume and your husband is dashing around in a white unitard...well nobody really cares that your costume is kinda lame.
We had some great costumes at our Halloween Shindig. My favorite was Lauren as the Hamburgler. However seeing my friends and former employers as Captain America and Catwoman was a little bit priceless
