John and I are finally feeling better!  He’s kicked his strep throat completely, and once my allergic reaction to my antibiotic goes away (I’ll save you the gory details), I’ll be just peachy.  This week is already looking up!

So I’ve had a few posts floating around in the ether recently. At some point I hope to comment on both the Polanski fiasco and the Nobel committee. I’m also working on a review of Black Boy (American Hunger) by Richard Wright–a book, an autobiography actually, that I think is really important. Next week look for a discussion of Pulitzer Prize finalist Luis Alberto Urrea’s visit to campus.

But tonight? I think perhaps I’ll begin with another GO HOGS!  The handed victory over Auburn on Saturday was a blast, and it was nice having a win at home.  Did you know that most SEC teams call Fayetteville “Fayettenam?”  According to this Sports Illustrated article, they sure do.  It’s where winning seasons go to die.

On another note, Joel’s having his first boy/girl party, AND it’s a Halloween shindig.  I cannot emphasize enough: I LOVE Halloween.  I went ahead and whipped up these Martha Stewart Halloween invitations:

The joints are connected with small scrapbooking brads, so the arms move.

I so wish I had taken pictures of our invitations–they were absolutely phenomenal.  We used red envelopes instead of black, which made the contrast–and the skeletons inside–that much more sublime.  I wish I could help coordinate the party from start to finish, but maybe I’ll be able to send over some other goodies in the coming weeks.

I love Halloween!
