Halloween's afoot!

Tomorrow's the day most people are doing their Halloween stuff. I'm amused to say that Rob Brezny is providing costume suggestions. Sexy midwife? I don't think so. (wechsler, perhaps it might suit you?)

Meanwhile, the "foot tapping" jokes continue. May I recommend this Tom the Dancing Bug cartoon, pilfered from mysticalforest?

Dinner chez rosamicula tonight. It's sad that the way my calendar gets booked up (okay, fine, I volunteer myself for all of those shows and stuff, but still ...) that I have to make plans with people almost a month in advance if there's any chance of things happening, but I do look forward to them when the finally roll around! That said, don't think it's ridiculous to be asking me to do things in December and January, as the calendar is already filling up (what can I say, there are some good plays out there, not to mention fun parties!).

Actually it's very thrilling for me nowadays that I get invited over to people's houses for dinners and social gatherings as back home these things seemed as rare as four leafed clover. I sound a bit pathetic and geeky and sad when I say this (or I feel I do), but it really makes me very happy. Maybe people in Seattle just don't do this stuff much, or maybe people in London are crazy for it, or maybe I've just fallen in with a very hospitable crowd, but I felt back home that if I wasn't organizing it (or my brother and SIL), that it didn't happen. Nowadays I get to Hang Out With People, and it's not just because I'm throwing a party. :-) The SeaGoth Stitch 'n Bitch and such was quite nice, but that was only the last year I was there out of ten! This is much better.

(PS: This has been a week of amazingly good sleeping, which I thought I'd mention since I so frequently bitch about not sleeping well.)

(PPS: Comical spam subject line du jour: " she will love a massive meat in her back door!" That's right, if the delivery man is bringing me an American Bronze turkey or a Smithfield ham, I'll be thrilled!)

You are such a 'glass half empty' whinger, woman! How is sad that your friends - and you - have busy lives and lots of social engagements? I can only do Proper Cooking on non-school nights and all the intervening weekends were busy.

I do make more ad hoc arrangements for having people over sometimes but they are folks I have known for a very long time, whom I don't mind see me when I'm knackered and my flat when it's messy and taking pot luck with what's in my kitchen.

once more with spelling
You must realize I'm not knocking YOU for my needing to schedule a month in advance, but ME, as I am such a comically over-occupied muppet.

And we're really looking forward to seeing you. :-)

I have further clarified my post. Here's hoping that in the future I'll join the ranks of the people that truly don't need to be cleaned up for. All I really need is a bottle of tequila and some tortilla chips with melted cheese on top, you know?

A Smithfield Hand? What's that? Is that like a Smith Fieldhand? Good to eat, Smithfield Hand?

That's me trying to post furtively at work and screwing up.

That's right, I never, ever invited you anywhere in Seattle. Nope.

;P

There's a difference between having a community and having just one or two people making a bit of an effort, and certainly nobody was making the kind of effort at hosting events and parties the way I was most of the time I was living in Seattle (possibly they were but just weren't inviting me, but mostly I think the people I knew just weren't doing things). I think I only went over to yours once, right, in the last year I was there?

I think that's right, but it wasn't for lack of invitations.
