Happy Halloween!

It was pumpkin carving night at the Green house. As you can see Killian continues his devotion to Dr. Who with a T.A.R.D.I.S. pumpkin and Corwin announced tonight that he was "going old school" with his. 

I hope everyone who celebrates Halloween or Samhain has an amazing night. (And a safe one, too!)

Only In My Family

So, I got a phone call from my mom the other day.

Mom: Wanna hear about my big adventure?

Me: Does it involve your girlfriend stealing a cop car? If not, it's probably not gonna top Martin's big adventure.

Mom: No...but it does involve me getting trapped inside a restaurant bathroom.

Me: Do tell.

Mom: Well, it was one of little single-stall bathrooms and the door lock busted while I was in there. I couldn't get out. The lock wouldn't budge!

Me: Oh no!

Mom: Yeah, the lock on the door broke. I tapped on the door for a while, calling "Hello." I didn't want to call for help in case someone thought I was having a medical emergency. They had to send a manager in through the ceiling tiles into the bathroom and then they dropped tools down to us. One of them was a butter knife.

Me: I knew that was a viable tool no matter what Matt says!

Mom: Right?!

Me: So then what happened?

Mom: Well, the manager worked on the door from our side and then some other guys worked on it from the other side. When they finally got it open, there was some cheering and one of the guys said, "It's like rescuing the Peruvian miners!"

Things that amuse me on long car trips.

Okay, so Brynn Paulin and I went to RomantiCon this past weekend and had a freaking blast - I'll post pictures later, but I had to share this first. I spotted this car on the Ohio Turnpike. And the following conversation was had...in our best movie announcer voices.

Me: Poet double-oh-three.
Brynn: He's got a license to rhyme.

Texts from Cait - Part Thirteen (The one where Cait rants about Australia)

For those of you unfamiliar with Texts from Cait, this is the part of the blog were I post *hilarious text messages from my little sister.

* It's entirely possible that they may be far more hilarious to me than everyone else, but I'm sharing anyway in hopes that someone gets a much needed giggle.

I got this picture Sunday morning right after I got up at unholy o'clock. (Click to embiggen)
