Favorite Halloween adventure: Greg and I worked on a documentary in Oaxaca immediately after a small earthquake. We shot in cemeteries during "Day of the Dead" and had lots of Mexican families make us welcome in their homes. A beautiful time to be in Mexico.
You "had lots of Mexican families make us welcome in their homes"?  How brutal!  How forceful!  I'm certain, had you simply asked, they would have done so without coersion!  (Of course, there's always that awkward language barrier thing.  Not to be confused with an awkward language barrio thing, which is quite different.)

I know I didn't get all of WITHOUT A TRACE last night. THE DVR had "No Data" in the 11 p.m. and 11:30 slots and wouldn't allow me to program it to record those since nothing was listed.

I know the NFL ran late on CBS in this market, so I will be missing WITHOUT A TRACE. Haven't decided if I'll watch what I got of it, or skip it altogether and make a note to watch for the rerun when I comes around.

The re-run of Without a Trace will be delayed, due to a baseball game.   :-\

I finally did get my Amazon shipping notice for the Astaire-Rogers boxed set of feature films. I had complained to them last week about the delay and was informed that they had a large demand for the sets with the empty slim cases in them and had to restock. Since my pre-order was far down the list, I had to wait my turn. Irritating but understandable.

Good morning dear Esteemed, rested, blocked, and rarin'-to-go BK --

You were a wise mensch to take a day yesterday, and shun the outside technology and intrusion of the world!  You will be much the better for it.

Your brain cells for The Brain will be much sharper..... your sense of smell will delight in some perfectly wonderful aroma that shall waft before you.....your taste buds shall savor a perfectly prepared morsel of something today.... your already schoene punim is now even more "schoene" than before.....your sculpted abs have added  2 more items to their 8-pack.....and your buns of steel could now out-do a 90 ton stamping press at a General Motors factory!

You sound in rather stellar shape Kiddo !

I never have cared for Halloween, not when I was a kid nor now.  Just not my style, putting on disguises and pretending to be who or what I'm not.

TOD :

I haven't done "dress-up" for quite a few years....the last time was for my sweet and wonderful nephew at one of his "themed" birthday parties.  I was Darth Vader....the costume was very accurate and complete.....I almost died from the heat in it!  But my nephew thought I was very cool, and that was all that mattered!! :)

For my own choices, DP Kerry will attest to the fact that I'm a sucker for anything involving a cape.  Go figure!!

And you should see DP Kerry as Mary Hartman......I may dig up a picture later......

Wow, I got my Astaire-Rogers set over a week ago, and I don't think I was very far up the list.   ;D

Halloween Costumes:  Believe it or don't, DS Betsy is going to her job's party tomorrow as the dairy section of our local one stop shopping center.  She made her costume herself, as you might imagine.

When she was a child, one of Sybil's personalities had the INCHOATE notion if she said the right NICE OATH she could cure anything that hurt her.  For example, if she were to stub her CHINA TOE, the correct words would turn that ACHE INTO the ability to dance like a ballerina.  Sybil's mother just thought she was crazy.

Did you get the one with empty slim cases for the films in the first set? That's the one they said they were out of, but then, it might have been the distribution center for the east coast that was out rather than the west coast one.

I just remembered along with last night's COLD CASE and DEXTER, I also recorded GREY GARDENS which I will probably watch first today. Those one hour dramas I can see tonight since I won't be watching the CBS reruns.

Yes, I got the "Amazon Exclusive" for the people that had already purchased Set 1.  Speaking of which, I have some lovely DVD snapcases complete with Astaire-Rogers art I'd like to sell.   ;)

Mawnin', all!

Oh, hallowe'en!!! the best of all holidays! The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props!!! Hallowe'en is very likely why I love showbiz! Oh, the costumes!!!

A few weeks ago I was looking at some of the photos of my siblings and me, as little tykes at hallowe'en - how we (of course, I mean "I") all looked forward to that, every year. Hallowe'en and ballet recitals. So, one photo was of the four of us (Mom had four kids in five years... ): Tami and I were in identical Dutch Girl outfits, Rikki was an angel, and Mike was in a little orange and black Harlequin costume my mom had made for Rikki the year before.

Another picture was of me, the year I was 9 and made my own costume: I was s circus bareback rider, and made the horse out of a broomstick, some wire hangers for the shoulders and hips, strips of an old bedsheet for legs, and a paper shopping bag for a head.

But last year, in Lahaina was pretty sensational: 30,000 people parading down mainstreet, with teams of people dressed as libraries, where the "books" open, and the characters come out. That was pretty swell. there was a team dressed as The Mad Hatter's Tea Party! Some really unbelievably imaginative and intricate costumes. I, myself, went as a fairy, with huge double pink gauze wings, encrusted with sequins of all sizes. The wings took me nearly a week to make. Worth it!

Okay - so it's 8 ayem - time to hit the books again, before I leave for school...

PS - I've decided I'm going to keep this place, when the rent goes up Jan. 1, so I need 10 more Tarot clients per week. Fifty-five-minute hour. Referrals, only. No suicidally depressed folk or others who really need professional doctors and/or lawyers... I do the spiritual reading, counseling and coaching...

Monday morning greetings!  Today is my day off - slept in and now I'm puttering.

TOD - Since I grew up in Detroit, my Halloween costumes had to permit dressing for cold weather - no flimsy fairy princess costumes!  One year, I decided to be a majorette and modified my winter jacket to look like a band uniform.  I made a tall hat out of an oatmeal box covered in leftover shag carpet and topped with glitter.  It looked great, but really hurt my head.

The most interesting halloween costume I had was when my freind Sandy, her brother Keith and I dressed up as characters from Doctor Who..  I was Leela and man was that get up COLD in North Dakota.  However, one of their freinds had created a Davros costume that popped over in the elevator and we had to extract the chicken wiring from the carpeted walls.

DR Ginny, I hear you on cold, growing up in ND, I often had to wear winter gear under my costume. One year we had 15 inches of snow on the ground already.

One year, when I was in college, I went to a costume party as a slug!  A couple of years before, I had been given a knitted cap that had stuffed, cloth slug feelers sewn on the top of it and I used plastic garbage bags as the body and plastic wrap as the slime trail.  It was really a simple but fun costume.  Everybody loved it!  When I moved back home after I graduated from college, I lost the slug hat. :(

We're having a lunch pot-luck tomorrow and I was thinking about bringing a layered pumpkin pie (I got the recipe from a magazine when I was in high school...and I still have it!), but I have rehearsal tonight.  I would have to buy everything and make it after rehearsal.  I don't know if I'll have time to do it, but we'll see.
