A rich and extensive vocabulary...that I cannot use.

Getting the Halloween party, planning, talking other families into letting the kids come trick-or-treating, explaining what trick-or-treating is (in Catalan)...debating if I am a cultural imperialist imposing my foreign (possibly dominant) traditions, blowing that away like so much dust in the wind, yadda yadda yadda......

Finished work till I get back from Germany...teaching teens is fun, especially the older teens.

Cannot understand why I cannot get Eldest's messenger account to function properly. She should be able to send messages even when her contacts are off line, but it just ain't happening. Grrrr.

Woke up in the wee small hours of the night because I had to sneeze. Now that was a first.

I couldn't get back to sleep. That wasn't.

Poopety poop.

Teens taught me new very bad words.....never dull.

Hey there. Just as an FYI to those mothers, you can say that Halloween is not originally from North America, but from Gaelic tribes, hence 100% European.

LP, that true? It must be...certainly I don't think it existed with the it must be at some level...NA's just being Europeans that drifted away for a while, no?
