    DH is in a band, and one year the whole band dressed as Scooby Doo characters.  DH was Fred and I tagged along as Daphne.

    Rant: my car died on 494 last night!! I don't even drive a beater - its a 2006 Focus... but I have been putting off replacing my alternator, and it finally gave out.  :(  Thank God for AAA!!!  The tow back to my house only cost me $4.  FI is going to try to fix it this weekend - lucky me that he is so handy!

    Rave:  AAA and Steve and Bobby's Auto/Towing.  Great service by both last night!!!!  Also by the very nice man who stopped and offered a jump while we were waiting for the tow truck.

    Not the best way to start my Halloween weekend; however, we have a poker tournament tonight, and I'm hoping one of us wins big so we can afford this car maintenance!

    Rant:  stupid Gretchen won Project Runway last night.  Grrrr!!!  Her clothes look like something a frumpy art teacher in Santa Fe would wear.  Mondo's clothes had color! and joy!  That finale was absolutely cracktacular.

    Rave: just 6 hours and 11 minutes until my weekend starts.  I've got a sh!t ton of stuff to do for my craft fair coming up in a week and a half, but I'm looking forward to it, since chocolate and candy making are my passion.  Also, I'm looking forward to a party we're going to at FI's cousin's wife's McMansion she just bought.  It's probably a huge place with crappy stuff in it, since she has no taste.

    Random Fact: the wind on Jupiter moves at 225 MPH

    Random fact: I googled random wedding facts and this was the first funny/awkward one I read...
    1. In States where no blood tests or physical exams are required, failing to tell your prospective spouse that you have a venereal disease or a physical impairment (such as impotence or infertility) can void the marriage.k

    Best Halloween costume: It's not exactly my costume......but our neighbor's dog is going as Charlie Chaplin. Too bad I don't have a pic.

    Random fact/rant: I am subbing in a 2nd grade classroom today and the children can't have a Halloween celebration because there is a Jehova's Witness in the class, which is understandable. i asked the teacher why they didn't have a Fall day and she said it was best not to do any of it all together.

    Then when I got to class, I found out that the girl wasn't coming today and she told all of her friends about it yesterday. I just wish the teacher would have known so all of her other kiddos could have celebrated since she wasn't going to be there!

    Oh well, we did a fun M&M math game instead!

    Rant: Last Night while at the Maroon 5 and One Republic concert I felt something pinching my Ring Finger. Turns out my E-Ring band broke :(  Had to take it in to Shane Co. So I'll be without my ring for this Halloween Wknd ... feels weird

    Rave
    : Shane Co was very professional and apologic that the ring broke - nice thing is they have a lifetime garunette and care without having to take it in on a regular basis. So they are going to replace the bottom half of the band. Its going to be better than new when I get it back on Monday.

    Random Fact
    : On Avg. 15 people a year die from a vendor machine falling on them as a result of shaking it to get the snack out. haha so Officer workers beware next time you shake that subborn vending machine.

    <strong><font color="#800080">Yup!  I met with her about a month ago.  She was the first florist I met with and I liked her but then also really liked another girl I met with.  I don't know why it was so hard to choose a florist for me but it was.  Honestly though I saw your flowers on her FB and thought they looked amazing so that was what put her ahead, so I decided to go with her after that!</font></strong>
