. . . I've been told that I write novels for email messages. Perhaps this is the way to go. I'll try to make each entry, or Gemstone, a "precious" one. On mediocre days, all I might be able to produce is a "semi-precious" entry. In any case, an entry might be a "neat" Gemstone--something that is uniquely mine.

Happy Halloween!

A clown, a cat, and a barfing pumpkin!

I think I'm all partied out! This morning started with a 2nd grade Halloween Extravaganza performance followed by a party. Then after lunch I had to hit all of the 5th and 6th grade classrooms to see everyone's costumes. Of course, I had to sample the treats that were brought: caramel apples, cupcakes, pizza, donuts, and Pop Rocks.  I did pass up the pickles and flan.  Anyway, it was a great Halloween day around the school and the kids were in great spirits (and some were literal spirits!).  

Tonight I hope to watch the Halloween classic:  It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown after all the trick-or-treaters come to the house.  Hope your Halloween is spooky and scary and that you have leftover candy to enjoy!

11/1/08 Edit:  It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is always enjoyable even after all these years.  I just love Snoopy and the way Linus is oblivious to Sally's admiration always gives me a chuckle.  A true classic!

Knew you could not pass on the Pop Rocks. I think you always called them "brain food". and asked for them when you were studying for a big test. Glad you passed on the pickles and flan. That sounds like something would want if you were pregnant. Mom

The big test food was plain M&M's! But Pop Rocks would probably be great to keep a person alert and awake. Don't like the texture of flan and pickles don't appeal to me--proof that I'm not, nor ever will be, pregnant again!

I think I was wrong about the brain food. I think it was "Nerds", not Pop Rocks that you always asked for.
