OOOOhhhh 2 posts in 1 day!

Ok, so I missed Blogtoberfest this year cuz of my dumb butt computer and I really almost kinda felt like I shouldn't participate in any of the give aways since I wasn't doing any of the rest of it. But then I came to my senses!! So, my first give away that I entered was over at Kimono Reincarnate. Here's the goods she'll be sending the lucky winner (namely me)...

And she has a BUNCH of ways to get multiple entries so go, go now! Don't dilly dally cuz the give away ends on November 1!

I love this time of year!

This is one of my most favorite times of the year. Here in SoCal we get the Santa Ana winds whipping around scattering the fall leaves (and yes, we do actually have leaves that turn color and fall - you just have to go to the right neighborhoods) and there's a certain smell in the air. I've been told it's called "fresh air" since the winds blow all the smog away but I choose to call it "Autumn". And then there's the gear up to all the coming holidays. Halloween is a good kick off to it all. Dressing up, giving out candy, getting candy - I love it!

This year we - my sister, my dog, my car and I - are going to be M&M's. I guess that needs some explanation, right? Every year (except for last year when we were moving) my sister and I participate in the Halloween festivities at our church (we call it Harvest, not Halloween) where they have a section called "Trunk or Treat" most people (you know, the cool people) dress up and decorate their cars and there's a contest for best decorations. We all line up around the church parking lot, trunk sides in, and we all hand out candy from our trunks, or in my case hatch back. Despite the fact that I've never won the decorating contest I feel my car has been the best each year - they just don't appreciate my perspective, yeah that's it. I've shown this before but here's the car from two years ago when we all dressed up as different Disney sea creatures...

The car was Monstro from Pinocchio.

So that's happening this Saturday and I haven't even started on our costumes yet. I'm making my sister's, mine and the car's. The dog's is a sweater I bought at M&M world in Times Square so I don't have to worry about him.

Anywho, I really do love this time of year. There's nothing like it!

I really hate not having a reliable computer and an even worse internet connection! Since about June or so my time on the internet has been sparse, very sparse. It's one of those situations that is dependent on $$$, of which I have none! This whole "economic downturn" business is really starting to get on my nerves!
