Today is the first day of November, and it is ushered in, somehow most appropriately, by a grey sky and misty rain that was just enough to smear all the dust and grime on my windshield into a vision-obscuring mess, but not enough to wash the gunk away. I have parked my car completely in the open this morning, however, in the hopes that if the sprinkles continue long enough, maybe by the time I head home, it will have been enough to clear the window so I can see.
Today is also the first day of NaBloPoMo, which is the bloggers' answer to Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month). In the spirit of an early Holidailies, or rather, to kick start my rather rusty posting habits, I've committed to posting every day of this month. That means that if I can keep this up, all of you (my three remaining trusty readers) can count on brand new content every day for two months straight. Notice that I did not promise that it would be scintillating content; just that it would be new. Which is certainly an improvement on the rest of this year.
Anyway. Last night was Halloween and we did our usual very exciting Halloween thing (which isn't very exciting, but then Halloween never is when you no longer can go ringing doorbells asking for candy). We made meatballs and spaghetti for dinner, a novel thing since I cannot remember the last time we had actual ground beef in the house (usually it would be ground turkey, or the faux ground beef). We passed out gummy body parts for candy - something which apparently made a hit, since a number of little kids thought it was pretty cool to get gummy eyes, ears, noses, mouths, and severed fingers in their candy bag. This year we watched The Fog, a movie with an interesting concept - crew of plague ship comes back from the ocean for revenge on the ancestors of the men who burned them all alive - but a predictable outcome. The good thing is that we weren't looking for anything highly intellectual - lame horror flicks are far better for watching when you have to hit the pause button every few minutes.
