WOW - is it me or did this past weekend just fly by - somehow I missed part of friday night and some time on saturday I think...I am not ready for another week to start - oh well...! I do not believe that I have mentioned anwhere - that my baby - my little girl - yes the one who graduated from High School (ugh) just had another birthday - she turned 19...OMG...that also makes me feel So for her birthday we have given her tickets to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. Now if you are a BIG halloween buff - love to celebrate it - love haunted houses - then you MUST make a trip to Halloween Horror Nights in Late September or October of whatever year...of course every year the theme changes and the horror gets worse...but it is something you will not forget...It definitely is not for the meek or mild or those that get scared easily. Also if you think you are big and bad - that means nothing during the horror nights...It really is unreal. I do not celebrate "Halloween" per se - but I do celebrate the fall feast and harvest and celebration of that day.... My hunnie is going with her - I think she needs daddy by her side...if not it is still good to have daddy by her side...and Allen REALLY is about the only person I have ever met that does not scare at all - kind of creepy if you ask me...LOL. I think they are going at the end of this week. I am so very happy to sit at home and let them do all that walking and getting scared at ever corner... the monsters and horrific characters come out onto the streets to chase people and do things to thanks - I stay at home and play with the dogs....LOL. (This year's theme is BLOODY MARY - never say Bloody Mary in the mirror 3 times on friday the 13th or on halloween - you never know what will happen!)

Finally I was able to get a new webcam for my puter (
video chats with my son in Japan)..the webcam I had is for windowsXP and the company (creative) is not upgrading the software for it to go with vista - so my hunnie bought me a new one....but it is too dark apparently in my room and you can barely see me - so now I am trying to figure out where to put a lamp so that it lights up the room more. It also seems not clear enough for me - anyone have any suggestions!? I have played with the settings but that is NOT helping!

I am slowly finding my friends from AOL J-LAND...hopefully I will find everyone before their journals disa
ppear from AOL.... It was a good weekend for football - the GATORS won (THANK GOD). Also the won which was nice - Unfortunately Tampa Bay lost - NY GIANTS--GEEZ I wish they could get it together! Well I think I will sign off here - I shall return soon - Thanks for stopping by--- PEACE~!~

That sounds like that would be fun to walk around in...but Universal Studios---gosh--I'm sure it's scary as ever. I don't know if I could sleep at night after walking through there! Julie

I have always thought that Halloween was a great day. It's just a fun time. Oh, by the way, I don't see any objectionable content. Why is that sign over your site entrance? Have a "good one" Regards, Bill

Cute illustration!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm going to be putting up a picture of the actual journal on Friday so you can see it. It's a Moleskine City notebook for New York, so it's quite small, but I love it.
