costumes

i'm working on my halloween costume this week and i'm really excited about it - i'll post some pictures next week after my sisters costume party. for now, i'll tie you over with me in a mustache.



btw... i received so many compliments on this it was a little scary! i guess i look good as a hairy dude!

fried fun

i went to the texas state fair twice this year - once for a group outing with my co-workers and again with neil and his co-workers. i haven't been to the fair since high school, and it was really fun to see all the weird fried food options. i don't know if these are new, but i certainly don't remember them being there before.

anyway, here is a sampling of what i saw: fried bacon, fried marshmallows, fried snickers, fried cheesecake, fried ice cream, fried peanut butter & jelly & banana sandwich, fried coke, fried cookie dough, fried moonpies, and fried green tomatoes to name a few.

the fried coke was a complete mystery to me and i was slightly dissapointed that it was only fried batter in some coke with whipped cream on top. dennis ordered one - here's a picture...



and a few more pictures here

deep breaths

robert guest's daily letters written to his children.

beautiful and touching and strangely tied to recent events for me. i'm enjoying this with deep breaths, hope you do too.

dreamy

wishing i were back on the beach but enjoying sleeping in my own bed. it's still dark when i wake up for work. a lot of things are changing these days, but you just have to take it as it comes, i suppose. for now i'll just go along with it and see where it takes me. hope you all have a great weekend.
