@mcf Yes, the picture!! I have one sister and my husband has two, and they have their various SOs and they are all pretty great.
This is hilarious: Once, I asked my mother why they'd gone through all the trouble to make our names match, expecting something deep and meaningful and heartfelt. "We'd just thought it'd be funny."
ALERT: If anyone hasn't seen The Preacher's Wife, it's on Netflix. I just saw it last week!
@AmbiSinister I genuinely want this brooch, despite the fact that a) I do not wear brooches and would have to learn how and b) would then need it to come down a few hundred bucks.
JAYA I need to see a wedding dress covered in gold sequins more than I have ever needed to see anything!
This year I kept my work/life balance under control more successfully than I have in any prior year, AND I have been managing someone for the first time and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be able to get her a promotion so that feels great.
@Jolie Kerr Yeah and those pumpkins lasted FOREVER. I think that one finally turned to goop in, like, January.
Oh my god I think the pumpkin one is me? From last year?
It was right fucked up, so I did end up sanding but then I couldn't match the finish right so there's just a little round sanded spot on my table until I get around to making my dad come and fix it. :/
@tofuswalkman The highlight of my Halloween last year was when two ~10 year old boys tried to pull "trick or treat, smell my feet" on us but couldn't finish the rhyme and my husband finished it for them. They were shocked--SHOCKED!--that such an old person knew their secret child chant.
YAYYYYYY--We're doing a couple of things. First, we've already started the parade of scary movies by watching two random ones on Netflix, You're Next and Insidious 2. Both were worth it for a weeknight!
The next thing is that we're going to have a Fall Extravaganza where we go to a pumpkin patch/corn maze in the afternoon, then go have some kind of Octoberfest dinner (there isn't a convenient German restaurant so this will probably just be sausage and beer), then go to Field of Screams which is a haunted house/woods walk/hayride situation. I AM SO EXCITED.
@Mike_B I would watch a Parks and Rec spinoff that's just Donna's life FOR SURE.
