halloween and homes

My Rochester home is on the market.. it looks amazing. If anyone you know whats to buy a home in Rochester please, pass this listing along. ❤ 352 Woodbine ❤

Nico came out for the weekend. I haven’t partied until 4am in… well I don’t know if I ever have, I’ve never been that hardcore about partying and I’d just go home when I got tired! It was surely a blast.

Halloweek cast call?

Mark and I were Zombie prom dates

Nico was a beaten housewife

josh was laura palmer

Jesse was Zombie BoPeep

Coco a party animal of course

Check out these SWEET plates by Sarah Cihat!

She buys plates at vintage stores and reglazes them. I wish I had a kiln…

I went to see Mt eerie after nannying tonight. Felt the same I always do about him.. he’s just too far out there for me. Enjoyable – but nothing I can grasp. I liked the opener Privacy quite a bit, her songs were short and just cut out at the end, but I love female vocalists. Her voice was reminiscent of Nico in the deep full sort of way. And she was pretty cute. I missed most of Karl Blau but he seemed allright. The end.

This morning while walking Roxie I was rushing around until I smelt that lovely smell of wet, decompositioning leaves and stopped dead in my tracks. MMMMM. I had one of those smelly flashbacks to the woods behind my house as a wee lass just upturning every pile of leaves I could find and when I would turn over rotting logs to find salamanders, they were sticky wet and wiggled to escape my grasp and I loved that feeling, does Illinois have Salamanders? Thanks google for the correct answer – YES and they look like THIS. Sick. Anyhow, its that sweet smelling fresh dirt – not the poop kind.. I know you know what I’m talking and have probably already enjoyed that smell this season but I’ve managed to be too busy to turn over a few damp leaves so if you haven’t – Stop and smell the wet leaves won’t you?

Also this morning on 103.1 there was a DREXCLUSIVE playing the whole new Britney album that doesn’t evening come out for a few more months and I foudn myself excited for a moment – What? Has my fascination with celebrity fuck-ups finally ruined me the way Mark says it will? I briefly considered staying in the car to listen to it a bit longer but upon arrival to the thrift store I just turned off the car forgetting I was even listening to anything. Close call…

Along that note – I’ve been remembering how exciting it used to feel to go see music live, I’m talking even bigger than that punk show feeling- I’m talking STADIUM EVENTS! With superstars you’d been waiting months to see and you didn’t care that seats were $50 and you were in the back because your Mom bought them! John(shout out to the only person who reads my blog!) and Cindy went to St Louis for Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello yesterday and their post-concert afterglow left me quite jealous. I don’t even think I like music enough these days.. but damn I miss it.
