Marisol & I were playing baseball on the Wii.
"How come the outfielders don't have legs?"
"Probably for the same reason that both teams have the same uniform!"
"Inky, it's your turn to bat! Let's see if you can actually *hit* the ball this time!"
"I'm up to bat! Check out my awesome pants!"
"Home Run!!!!! Score!!! I am the best ever!!!"
"Nice job Inkers, you did a great job actually hitting the ball! I'm stunned you actually got a home run!"
"Clearly, I am the best ever at baseball!"
"Um, I'm not sure about that. I beat you 11 to 1. They had to invoke the Mercy Rule! Do you want to play again?"
"I'd love to, but I promised Iris that I'd carve our pumpkin. I see her over there! See you next week!"
"Inkeeeeee! Get your rear down here! This pumpkin weighs more than I do!"
"Leaping Lenins! That thing really is huge! How are you going to get it all the way to the kitchen?"
"You may not have noticed this before, but a key feature of the red wagon is wheels. Duh."
"Okay, here we are with the pumpkin. We're still making a kitty head, right?"
"Right. Lenin's head was a little too tough for us, sorry."
"Maybe next year?"
"If you carve it yourself."
"You have to cut the top off first. It makes it much, much easier to get the guts out."
"Do you have to talk about that? Oooh, this is an awesome tradition. It looks like brains in there! Gross!"
"Mmmm, guts! Mmm, brainies!"
"We have to save the brainies, so that I can make you a guts pie later. Are you ready for me to start carving?"
"The whiskers are the hardest part."
"Dude, but the nose tip is the best! Make sure you get the kitty boogers in the guts bowl!"
"All done! Here's the tea light!"
"Never mind! *This* is totally the best part yet!"
"It's lit!!! Happy Halloween Inky!!"
"Turn off the lights! I want to see the floating kitty head!"
"Tonight, we go to sleep by pumpkin-light. Happy Halloween!"

I made a new friend- that's right, it's Dennis Kucinich! He was really funny. After I went back to my seat, Dennis went up on stage and played a song with Ani. He shook a little tube with shakies inside of it. Isn't that cool? I got to meet the Official Hopeless Candidate of Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me!

Okay, I'm in just under the wire, because Mama was playing on the computer. She likes that Sims2 game, especially the gardening. BORING! That's what I say.
I took this picture of Iris on her bed, reading this dorky magazine for small-sized humans. We haven't had a new issue in about 2 years, so I guess it's better that usual. I'm not sure if I've ever explained Iris's loveys.
She's got an Addy doll, wayyyy too many My Little Ponies, and a brown Nijntje. Nijntje is from the Netherlands, where our friend Mieke lived between Indonesia and New York. Brown Nijntje is wearing a very inappropriate outfit.
What do you like to read before bed? I really like adventure books that give me awesome dreams.

Okay, so I woke up today and it was all quiet.
Iris wasn't even in her bed.
Neither was her chihuahua.
I checked in the bed to be sure. Sometimes puppies like to go under the covers and snuffle their noses on your legs.
Then I saw him. "Mulder!! Come here!"
He was running down the hall! I had to catch him!
"Mulder! Show me where Iris is!" He was too fast. Stupid Mulder went around the corner before I could tell where he was running.
He wasn't in the kitty bed with Safran.
Wait! There he went! In the front closet! "Mulder!!! Wait for me!!"
"Iris! Iris! I know you're in there! I can hear you talking!"
"Hey! Iris! What were you doing in the closet? And who were you talking to?"
"Talking? I don't know what you're talking about. But hey! Didn't you see that package for you on the desk?"
"Package! Package! For me!"
"Mulder! You almost let the secret out! Next time, just stay on your blankie!"
"Holy Hotdogs! There really is a package for me!"
"Okay, I wonder what's inside it."
"Score! Leaping Lenins! It's that flask I wanted to get when we went to the Space Needle! This package must be from Naomi & Otters!"
"I know exactly what to do with this."
"And a Nintendo DS! Maybe now I can play those Brain games with
"It's so cool. Thank you so much Naomi!"
"Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! It's a Wiimote! This is the best! Now I can play Elebits! Isn't it awesome? It's perfect for me!"
"Thank you so much Naomi! And Otters! And Nethie!"
