Between Che Underground, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn — oh, yeah, and real life! — this blog has been growing a bit weedy.
I started my very cool new job at TheLadders at the beginning of September … Sadie and Lily entered 10th and 6th grades, respectively … Nancy has been arting it up furiously … And we’ve been engaged in the usual run of family holiday fun, most notably our elaborate preparations for Halloween.
Our front yard is the scariest on the block, and Sadie and Lily outdid themselves as Rorschach from the “Watchmen” graphic novel and one of a pair of cupcakes. Lily is the one on the right in this photo from yesterday’s Halloween party in Maplewood Village.
Our house is a contender for the Maplewood Lions Club’s 2007 Halloween Home Decorating Contest! (That’s House #8 here. E-mail email@example.com to vote for 16 Euclid.
Nancy is in the inaugural exhibition of Rupert Ravens’ magnificent new gallery in Newark!
Sara, our old black Lab, isn’t doing so well. I hate October when it comes to elderly pets … Seems to come in with a scythe and leave with our livestock.
On the bright side, we’re gearing up for Halloween in a big way! Lily is going to be a Grim Reaper holding her own head, and Sadie is going to be a naked-rat angel princess in honor of her much-loved rat Frisbee, who did indeed pass away just before Halloween ’05.
