For any of you who didn’t get it, the last post was in regards to gay marriage..But feel free to apply it to any inequality you feel is out there.
So today is Halloween That holiday lost its fun for me once I stopped trick or treating, mostly because in my neighborhood, the kids went around spraying nair and egging people. Really, not a fun experience. And since I was one of the “good kids” I didn’t go, and just hung around the house.
Though, one of my favorite parts of Halloween is Charlie brown great pumpkin show. I gotta see if its on tonight.
I don’t do horror, because I’m a big almost thirty year old chicken shit. So there.
Saturday, we saw some dude in full Colonial America regalia, which was cool. We skipped the Halloween parade, even though its only a few minutes away. We saw it once before though. Entertaining, but VERY crowded. Definitely cooler then the Thanksgiving parade. (Once we were no longer in it, that is).
In other news, I got my office fully moved into today, except for a nonworking phone, of course. But it’s a big deal to me, since you can only get one once you’re a certain rank, and they’re hard to come by. So I was super psyched. To me, its indicative of achievement. For whatever that’s worth. =) I don’t have many more career landmarks in the near term, since my next step would be senior vice president, and there’s a line of people in front of me for that in my work group. So this was my next big step. It’s got no windows, but it’s huge, and I’m happy to have a door.=)
In other meandering thoughts, when I was reading my favorite Will Wheaton blog (He rocks, don’t laugh), he linked to the blog of one of the writers on an early Next Generation episode that I really liked. She’s got some interesting links to her early episode drafts and outlines. I was a bit surprised by the type of summary they are, especially in light of what a finished script looks like. Kinda cool actually.
If I never mentioned this before, Wil Wheaton was a HUGE influence on me. It wasn’t easy being a smart kid in Queens growing up, and he gave me a role model that I looked up to in my earlier years. Now, he’s a pretty entertaining writer, so I still get to enjoy his work.
In even more meandering thoughts, a exco worker of mine just sent out birth announcement for his new girl. I was shocked he got married and even more shocked that he had a kid. He’s in his late 40s, and his prospects weren’t too good, but guess I was wrong on that. It definitely is baby season, they’re everywhere. I’m still on the fence about my own path in this area. Talk about a lifetime commitment. I always loved kids, but I also love it when they go home. So I’m not quite decided yet, to say the least.
All right, that’s enough random thoughts for now. It was a good day. My husband is home, so now it will be a better night. Good night y’all, and hope you have many happy treats today!
