***Sewing my Halloween costume on the night of the “Project Runway” season finale was not a good idea. I suddenly feel very inadequate. It doesn’t help that I started working on it three days before our Halloween party. Our guests always have such high expectations since Dan and I usually have such fantastic costumes. I think I’m going to have to cut some corners to get this one done in time. It’ll still be good – just not perfect.
***Remember those pants I took to get hemmed a while back? Well, they turned out great! I’ve been wearing the altered jeans all week and it feels like I have a whole new wardrobe. Well, half a wardrobe, I guess. Granted, the jeans are all a little too big, but not so much that they fall off and they’re comfortable. I spend most of my day sitting in front of a computer at work so a pair of pants that look good standing, but are uncomfortable sitting won’t do me any good at all. Yeah, $8 a pair to hem these jeans was money well spent.
***(Käthe, you will appreciate this.) Dan and I are watching Game 6 of the World Series right now and the Cardinals have a player names Jon Jay. Now, this is where I show exactly how much of a nerd I am (and how much of an impact my high school AP American History class had on me). How many of my readers know that John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court? Yes, I know it’s spelled differently than the baseball player, but that didn’t stop me from telling Dan everything I know about John Jay, one of our Founding Fathers. I am such a dork.
***I was supposed to start my baking preparations for the Halloween party tonight, but I spent too long working on my costume. I wish I could take tomorrow off and spend the whole day cooking, but I have way too much to do at work. But hold on a second. I think maybe I’m starting to feel a cold coming on. Yeah, that’s it. *Halfhearted cough* I’ll just have to stay home to stop the spread of germs…and bake lots of yummy desserts for Saturday night. Just kidding!
***I can’t believe how exciting Game 6 of the World Series turned out. I started watching in the 8th inning and I thought there was no way Texas could lose, but then St. Louis tied the game…twice. And then the Cardinals hit a home run in the bottom of the 11th to win the game! I definitely didn’t see that coming. Dan said it was the most exciting baseball game he’s watched in a long time. I might just have to tune in for the entirety of Game 7 tomorrow night.
