This is Halloween!

On the night before Halloween, when all were asleep, Erin and her roommate, were making their keep,
They searched and scavenged for something to wear, they became terrified when they had nothing to bare.
They howled and the wept, for the lack of a thought, and opened their wallets for the money they sought.
But their wallets were empty and began to lament, and pounded their fists as they cried on cement.
But then a voice appeared from the dust, "Look in your dear closets, for there is no need to lust!"
The girls they gained courage, and began to have hope, they searched as if they were at the end of their rope.
And alas! They found it! The costume of their dreams! Their costumes, I warn you, may make you scream!

Ok, so I lied, our costumes won't make you scream.  To be honest, you'd probably just scratch your head and ask, "What the heck ARE you?"   The members that come into my credit union ask me what I am and I tell them to guess.  Whatever they say, I reply, "Yep! You are right!"

With an hour into the day, I have gotten a hippie, an indian, and a lot of other really confused looks. I also had someone tell me, "You look nice today!" He seemed completely clueless to the fact that it is Halloween. In all reality (actually, Halloween can't be considered as reality), I am a flapper.  Lame, eh? 

But no worries.  If I get sick of people wondering, I have a back up plan.  I will become French.  Then I shall speak wif ze french accent all ze day long and I vil LOVE it! :)

Then if people STILL don't get it, I'll resort to Ryan's idea...I will write "Book" across my face.  If people still don't get it, I'll tell them I am a popular social networking site.  If they (or you) STILL don't get it, well, then, I will officially give up on Halloween.

But for now, well, I'll keep my "flapper" costume and eat the bucket of Halloween candy sitting in front of me until I throw up.  Happy Halloween!!

P.S.  PLEASE forgive me for my TERRIBLE poem.  Poetry, apparently, is not one of my hidden talents...Limericks, however...

Yeah Toast

Here is a post that I started working on a couple days ago, I just never got around to finishing it, so here it is:

I have been on an emotional roller-coaster today. Yes, it is most certainly that time of the month for me.

Tears Again
More Tears

Ugh. It is only two in the afternoon and I already am exhausted by my mood swings. Annette (my wonderful co-worker) was so patient with me as I vented my "problems" to her at work today (if there was any doubt in my managers mind that I am a crazy hormonal girl it was erased today).  Some of which are real concerns that I have been struggling with lately such as what I am going to do with school and my personal issues with my American Heritage professor. But really, I was being completely irrational and I was frustrated at...well...nothing. These things were just vehicles for my uncontrolled emotions to take a joy ride in. The next moment, I was almost in tears over absolutely nothing. I had to try really hard to compose myself because all I wanted to do at the moment was to collapse on the ground like a three year old and sob my eyes out. Logically, my emotions only took me to the next phase...Laughter.
 Don't you love those moments when everything is funny and silly?
 Here is something that I found particularly funny ..Yeah Toast...which is a ridiculous song that was hilarious to me, my friends, and siblings when we were growing up. (Snap..I am now flooded with tons of found memories of all those people...composure Cait, don't get emotional...ok..better..) Here it is...(the song not all of the memories):

I really don't have a reason to be sad, angry, or frustrated. I am letting my hormones get the best of me. I am truly blessed with so many things.

That is all I had written from that day and I am doing a ton better now that my hormones aren't going haywire. :) I should be done with crazy hormones at least for another month. Yay!

Half Acre

Half Acre by Hem

I discovered this song while listening to Pandora. I fell in love instantly. I wish there was a good video that went along with it but alas the videos on Youtube were lame. So just listen to the song and imagine something splendid instead.
