So 2 days after Halloween I still have all the decorations up. Waiting until the weekend to fully take it all down. How long do you wait?

Sorry for the old-school politiking, Chain. I'll be sure to avoid multis at the end in the future.

Graci. Thought this was the Chicago area for a moment -- vote early, vote often!

That's an awesome story!!

Yea, she's already told me that I'm never living this down. In her words, when she first opened it, she was 'almost hyperventilating', but calmed down after someone she worked with immediately suggested that maybe they sent the wrong one.

But, yeah, she's laughing about it now, so hopefully no harm no foul. I'd hate to be the FTD rep when I call about this. I better get the right bear this time, but I'm having it sent to my office first to be safe. :p

Random thoughts on the Teddy bear mishap:

1. I wonder how many similar errors go undetected / unreported...
2. Thankfully, their product lines do not include sex toys...
3. Or would #2 above been less awkward?

Halloween decorations are so easy to take down when you don't even put them up. We didn't even have a pumpkin this year.

Hey JJ, I heard about the families of Chip and John filing suit. Such a sad situation all around. What's your thoughts?

So, college. First exam in the general requirement economics course (that I've been putting off for two years) is fairly straightforward multiple choice test that I scrape out an A on without much of an effort. Fast forward to exam 2, and without warning the test format changes dramatically. I'd be lucky to get a C. First world problems and all, but damn that's annoying.

Lol. Our first date is going to be Sabres/Flames on Friday. We've hung out quite a few times already, but always with mutual friends and such. Schedules have been a little wonky, but that doesn't seem to be throwing a wrench into anything so far.

No Halloween decorations of any kind this year. Unless you count my autumn leaves pattern oven mitt. That's staying out thru Thanksgiving.

More Halloween decorations at my house this year than any other year previously. My five-year old insisted.
