…..er…..oops. Here’s last night’s Open Thread that didn’t get published. So consider it a surprise late morning thread! (hopeful smile) The good news is I actually got 8 hours of sleep, which may prevent similar goofs in the near future!
Before we officially wave goodbye to October, I will share with you the greatest Halloween costume I’ve ever seen. I’ll preface this by saying that my big fear was that I was going to be seeing little Sarah Palins everywhere with red suits and glasses and little beehive hairdos. I braced myself, realizing that letting out a blood-curdling scream in the face of a 7-year old, or hurling fun-sized Snicker bars at her as she fled down the driveway would be inappropriate.
But, back to the greatest costume. It was worn by a boy whom I’d guess to be about 13 years old. He was wearing black and white prison stripes with the words “ConvicTED Felon” on the front. And the “Ted” part was in the same font as the Ted Stevens yard signs. Yes, a whole costume in honor of none other than our very own convicted felon Senator, Ted Stevens! I have to say, that made my night.
Hang in there, Mudflatters! Only 3 more days…
