'Someone just give me a peg leg already!' by Kara

Hallowe'en weekend was quite the trip. Friday night was dinner out for a friend's birthday - good stuff. Saturday was a Hallowe'en party, at which I showed up as the Eighth Doctor - down to the bare feet, although I didn't have the forethought to put 'John Doe on the toe.' (Not my favourite Doc, but I've got the hair for it.) Sunday was celebratory dinner with the family, seeing as both my grandfather and I landed jobs last week, and last night was torturing Hallowe'eners.

Whereas today, I start a new job (in about an hour). Also, House finally starts up again this evening, which is a great relief.

The unfortunate thing about being re-employed isn't not having time. It's figuring out how to best manage the time you have. Fortunately, I've jumped to about the middle of this month on comics, to give myself a bit of time to sort that out.

Finally, it looks like there may soon be a genuine British pub in Colonial Williamsburg. We'll find out soon whether or not the city approves it.

Try adding 'lo' to your general conversation. It's fun. 'Lo, we are out of milk!' is a much better way to get the message across than simply adding it to the shopping list.

Not much to report on my end. I have a new winter coat that makes look as if I should be standing guard outside a Soviet embassy. I'm slowly but surely working my way through a bottle of Ribena concentrate. And since trick-or-treaters were thin on the ground tonight, there's about four pounds worth of chocolate bars (that I don't like and won't eat) in the house.

Yes, I'm not especially fond of chocolate. I suppose this means I have to tear up my Woman Card or something.
