Bogie loved munching on plastic bags & I have a long bag from the cleaners hanging in the closet filled with teeth marks..sigh.

Keep posting the cheerleader quote, it makes me smile.



Thank you, Jane, for the memory association (sigh) and the encouragement.

I had a bit of a laugh on my dinner break. Every year people drive in from other neighborhoods around 7:30 and hit our neighborhood. My dad finds this kind of offensive so he starts slipping the kids packets of ketchup and tarter sauce. Then we left the front door manning to my little brother and set off fireworks.

LOL! That is too funny..I can see him doing that while smiling and making it seem as if ketchup and tarter sauce were the best candy around

My trip's just going to be a quick one back and forth to and from L.A., just two days in L.A. - but Skip's going to join some business friends in San Francisco for a few days after L.A.  and then fly back from San Francisco.

Nilla was in love with a shoe string. He used to walk around the house dragging the silly thing.  I found it the other day. Callie was dragging it for awhile.  Nilla also used to find my socks and decorate the house with them.  Whenever I see a sock in the middle of the floor I think of him

DR RonP, re: halloween weather. Warm is just right!

Actually it wasn't terrible tonight. Although it was colder than expected with a bit of rain. I think it was about 40F.

DR Jane, little megan was under the weather and did not dress up. She is too little to eat candy, so no point in going trick or treating anyhow. Next year she will be 2 and my sister told her tonight, "next year we will go trick or treating so you can get some candy for me and daddy" :)

(not that my niece understood what she meant anyhow, but still :) )

Does anybody else get annoyed by the previews ABC is showing for sweeps.  I am annoyed.

I watch LOST and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES on CTV (canadian station) and the previews they show are very reasonable.  BUt i happen to see commercials for both these shows today. And there were ridiculously huge spoilers in them.

Now i know this is sweeps. And i know that they want to get people to watch. But i really did not want to know either of these huge developments that were revealed to me.


MAJOR LOST and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES SPOILERS.

Re: LOST the promo i saw on CTV said that something huge was going to happen. On ABC they announce, "one of these castaways is going to die".

Re: DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, they show the woman who will be taking the hostages in the upcoming show. They talk about the hostage situation, and they say someone will get shot (and then show a teaser).

Personally i would rather have been surprised about both of these things. Is there no way to give mild spoilers without ruining it for people who would rather not know.

I was quite happy re: LOST just knowing that something major was going to happen. And re: DH i was happy not knowing anything about the hostage thing.

Maybe most people like to know these things. But to me they gave way too much away.

Trick or treating was good.  But when it is cool the kids have to wear jackets under their costumes. :(

The last group of kids got a nice treat. I had a lot of candy left (and don't want to eat any after tomorrow). So i gave them handfuls and they were very happy.

At one point i wrapped little megan in a blanket and brought her to the door with me. She was sort of stunned and not sure what to make of things.  I"m not sure how much she understand period. But halloween i'm sure was very confusing. All these kids showing up looking scary and getting candy.

I"m not sure who to vote for for DANCING WITH THE STARS. Mario is my favorite, so i used all my phone votes on him. But i suspect he and emmitt are safe.

I really don't want joey to go home and he could be in trouble. So i will probably use my internet votes for him. Although i really don't want monique to go home either. :(

I also like the cheerleader posts. I think it depends if you like the show or not (i like it).

The funny thing is that since HEROES is on Global here we don't get the same previews. In fact i don't think we get any previews after the show is over. So DR RonP, the first few times you posted the cheerleader quote i had no idea what you were talking about.

But then when i would tape STUDIO 60 (that comes on after it), it is on NBC, so i would get the previews from NBC and they would always have the cheerleader quote. I almost wonder if people watching the show on GLOBAL here are missing out on a lot!

My Roomba arrived at work from eBay today, but I had to go directly to my car from the courthouse, so I didn't bring it home yet. This weekend I shall have a robot to clean my floors

It will be interesting to see how the cats react to the Roomba

Ron I also agree with Jane, I have a halter from a horse I used to ride and sadly has passed on.

I also agree with Jane keep on posting the Cheerleader words...

WE need good words of encouragement in this deranged world of ours!

Well it's only 17 degrees. Time to cuddle up under the covers with a cat or two. Ok, even if it's a two cat night, Callie won't sleep on the bed. It's just her thing.

They have been pretty good tonight considering I had to put up all their food for the evening.  I've snuck a little to Callie a couple times and even offered some to Boo, but she wasn't interested.

While waiting for folks to come get their candy, I watched MON ONCLE.

I've had it for several months (it was the Criterion remaster which looked mostly smashing), but I was just never in the mood to watch it. I saw it years ago in a film appreciation class and not since then.

Terry Jones says in his introduction that he was disappointed when he first saw it but the film is now his favorite Tati. I have suffered a similar change of heart. I don't think it's the equal of M. HULOT'S HOLIDAY though there certainly are some hilarious sey pieces in it. But a lot of it just doesn't register or prolongs a joke past the breaking point.

HOUSE had another gripping drama plus the introduction of the fantastic David Morse as House's nemesis. I'm going to look forward to this battle between the two of them very much over the next episodes.

I'll have four hours of shows from tonight to try to fit in tomorrow. Busy day especially if the Astaire-Rogers box comes tomorrow as I expect.

DR CILLALIZ,
Do let us know how you like your Roomba. Such a wonderful concept, but the reviews on Amazon were mixed. I do know it's not useful on stairs--it needs a flat surface.

Halloween on my street was really wild this year. It was a warm day and a really pleasant evening, so we had more trick-or-treaters than usual.  We do an informal count of attendance by how much candy we give out. A neighbor who made two additional trips to the store told me she guesses we had 1200-1400 people. It's basically a four-block-long block party.

Our local fire department took part by driving a fire truck down the street with the firefighters in costume.

Former Virginia governor and until-recently-presidential-hopeful Mark Warner decorated his patio with low-flying cobwebs (you couldn't help but get caught in them), then he was dressed all in black, plus a mask ("I don't really know who I am," he told me, but he looked scary). The older kids "if you're really brave" (plus me) were invited to reach down into a cooler, past some really SLIMY stuff (pasta?) and pull out an "eyeball" (grape). He also had a monster with HUGE hands in attendance. It was quite fun. I had no idea he was going to do this.

Our canine costumes were a bit difficult to decipher this year. I saw two dogs as hula dancers and one as a convict (he got 2-5 years for jumping up on the table and eating the humans' dinner, I was told). Some of the others were anybody's guess.

One adult, who must be new to us, said, "It's like Bourbon Street--for kids." Lots and lots of smiles and everyone very gracious--not the usual state of affairs here in Washington.

I attended two parties on my block, but believe there were some others as well. Great fun!

They were the only children I recognized. Not many kids on our street. Many of the Trick-or-Treaters I'm sure don't even live in our neighborhood.

That's an understatement


Some years ago, my mom gave me one of those little dog robots that Radio Shack sold.  It was cute, did little tricks and yipped.

I brought it back to Oakland and put it on the floor.  Vickie was immediately on her guard over this critter that was smaller than she.

When I started it up, she was one unhappy cat.  When it began moving she ran and hid.   I put the dog away and went to retrieve her from my bedroom.

She hissed at me.   Later, she cautiously entered the living room.  She sniffed everything she could and caught no scent of another animal.  I think she forgave me.   She immediately came up to me and jumped in my lap.  She looked around a bit longer and then settled into a contented snuggle.
