in this town of halloween

This weekend was amazing with so much going on I could barely breathe. Friday night I saw Zetamale, Orioles, and Marshall Costan play at Nonesuch, which was fantastic. Afterwards we all headed over the usual place for the usual drill. Saturday morning I caught up with Daron over breakfast (yep, still my hero), and later picked pumpkins with Gianna, Katia, and KC (Richmond resident A-listers). That night I went to Wicked Woods, a new haunted woods thing near Fredericksburg. It was way better than Creepy Hollow and the stuff at Ashland Berry Farm, and well worth the $13 that Jameson, Kathryn, Angie and I paid to get in.  ‘Twas a fantastic Saturday, from beginning to end.

Also over the weekend, I accomplished the following:

  • Cleaned out the refrigerator doors (a way bigger task than you think)
  • Scrubbed the entire kitchen floor (same)
  • Cleaned the upstairs bathroom, including the floor under the tub (yikes)
  • Planted the front garden
  • Finished cleaning out underneath the stairs behind the house…quite possibly the worst job yet of all these
  • Took the clippers to the sidewalk between the house and the fence
  • Started clipping the jungle away along the backyard fence, but didn’t have time to make much progress, let alone finish

Yesterday when I got home from work, Old Man Johnson (this is what we call the man that lives across the street; we don’t know his name but he’s quite possibly the most amazing neighbor you could ever have, in a Fairy Godfather sort of a way) was out back finishing the clipping job I had started!  He was already almost done with half the backyard.  Allen told him to do it.  I love my house, I love my neighbors, I love everything.  I love not having to finish that insane job.

Then I baked some Halloween-y cupcakes and Kathryn helped ice them.  We went to Common Groundz (yeah, I know) to see Langley Holland and the Immaculate Shark: both fantastic.  Clair was stoked that we were there, and it was great to see him.  We had fun doing Etch-A-Sketch with Diana.

And now, for links!

Tonight I shall pick Dan up from the airport for his final visit to RVA before he moves here.  The word “excitement” doesn’t even do it justice.
