Booktender 2010: The October That Was

Such a joyful month.  Except for the political ads.  That was pretty heinous.  Fortunately, I have other things to worry about:

Seriously, how long before we discover that those little stickers cause cancer? How long does it take for them to biodegrade in a landfill? Where could they possibly fit in the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle meme?

Now before you wonder what I dressed up as for Halloween, just sit back down and shut the hell up.  I was home that day but, frankly, we don't get that many trick or treaters.  In my neighborhood, this is the time of year that the snowbirds (species:  migrating blue-hair) return to the Valley of the Sun.  The rattle of walkers is deafening this time of year.


Work the week before Halloween was interesting as always.  The down-and-out really take this time of year to heart.  Costumes were intriguing to say the least
