This is the first time in a while I've sat down at my computer to do something other than run a poker game or look at something other than costuming sites. I'm already planning for next year's cemetery gates, more headstones and a scarecrow in the front yard. I was a little disappointed this year with the rain and the power going out but all in all, I think the kids still had fun. I'm pretty tired right now. It's been an exhausting past week. Between Halloween and poker it's been non-stop around here.
This year Allison and Lana decided to move the Halloween party to our house. Keep in mind I've been slacking in my usual house duties since Halloween took over my garage. Dirty clothes everywhere, dishes from a week ago, sticky countertops, toys everywhere, etc. So I caught up on all my household chores in a matter of just five hours with Lana's help. Amazing.
The party went great - I think. There was plenty of booze to go around, many a happy drunks, and lots of laughter so I'd call that a success. I'll be posting the pictures later when I feel a little more up to the task. My hair still feels like I mopped the floor with it since I've been wearing braids and beads in it since Saturday. The biggest mess I had to clean after the party was probably wiping off the layer of spilled booze on my counters and cleaning the rim of the toilet after someone prayed to the porcelain throne. I hope they're feeling better. ;)
On a quick note, I made the Freeroll Tournament! I pulled a win out of my ass and clawed my way in as last act of desperation. I managed to pull off a first place win to bump many others. In the middle of the game Tracy told me I pretty much had to take first and hope about half a dozen players didn't make it past fifth just for a chance at getting in. It was like High School all over. Slacking all year around with my only chance of passing being to ace the finals. It's a good feeling tinged with a little guilt but a good feeling nonetheless.
Well, I should go for now. I need to finish cleaning my kitchen and get something to eat - After I wash the grit and waxy stuff out my hair. Man, I love Halloween but it's always nice to say goodbye. :)
