Moving right along

Today is the day of the big move--at work. It's been far worse than any of my previous, personal four moves this year. And the new office space isn't done yet so the contractors are still there, working on it. Oh joy.

I only had about twenty kids come trick or treating last night. A disappointment, and long gaps of waiting between the groups. My house is kind of on the end of the neighborhood, bordered by a main road. And worse, my front door faces that main road. I saw some groups of kids come to the neighbor's house, then cross the street to go back down without coming to my house (which was sort of out-of-the-way), oh well. It was still fun to see the costumes and I had enough candy to give the kids many pieces each.

from my E-mail:
A New Barbie for Christmas

With his chiselled looks and nippy little sports car, we always suspected Ken might be full of it - but now Barbie has gone and got herself a dog that's gone the same way too.

The latest Barbie accessory is her pet dog, called Tanner, which not only looks like a loveable labrador but also poops like one too. Almost a soon as Barbie has fed the dog its biscuit treats, a little something comes out the other end.

But, in a move designed to encourage responsible dog ownership, toy manufacturer Mattel has provided Barbie with a pooper scooper and bin too, meaning Tanner never has to leave any unwanted 'gifts' lying about on the carpet.

Tanner also comes equipped with dog toys, a bone, biscuit treats, a feeding bowl and a pink lead.

And, just in case that does not get the message across, Mattel has produced a promotional video of Barbie and Tanner playing in the park that shows you how to 'potty train' your dog.

So while Barbie may have seemed like the girl who had everything - including great clothes, cool cars, fabulous horses and no end of accessories - now we know what she was missing.

Have a great day!

Don't feel bad...we had ONE trick-or-treater last night! Now, I have a damn pumpkin full of candy that's sitting at Palace Peanut just waiting for me to dig into it!!!

Argh!!! ;)

Hope the move gets better for you...sounds like it really bites!

At least you had some trick or treaters. I quit buying candy because I haven't had a single kid come by in the last 3 years...make that 4 now.

All I can say is at least they didn't give her a stupid little yappy dog that she has to carry around like Paris Hilton. A woman with a Corvette should have a big dog, a real dog.

We had a burst of trick-or-treaters and then it was over. It was like sex with costumes and parents watching from the road.

OK, maybe that's a bad analogy.

We didn't get any kids...I think the schools and churches put on parties for them there...rather than possible pedophiles getting hold of them.
