Just a reminder that I'll put up the party post just after Midnight PST, or a little earlier, if I feel like I'm about to crash and burn. Either way, it will already be the 31st in the UK, so the soiree can officially commence at that point.

I'm extremely excited to wake up in the AM and see all your costumes. I've basically advised hubby that I'll spend most of the day glued to my laptop.

My Mint appearance as Bonnie Raitt is still planned, although my hair/make-up situation is much at the mercy of the Bay Bridge.

What Kind of Writer Should You Be Meme

Ganked from babykid528

Hmmmmmmm. Well, I am known for the humor in my mysteries, angst fics and even smut, although I don't consider myself a "joke writer" per se.

You Should Be a Joke Writer

You're totally hilarious, and you can find the humor in any situation.

Whether you're spouting off zingers, comebacks, or jokes about life...

You usually can keep a crowd laughing, and you have plenty of material.

You have the makings of a great comedian - or comedic writer.


Mayor Gav drops out of the race for Gov!

From the LA Times:

Gavin Newsom Quits Race For California Governor

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who has been seen as a leading contender to be the next governor of California, announced today that he is quitting the race.

Newsom is withdrawing from the Democratic primary amid lackluster poll numbers and meager fund-raising receipts. His withdrawal leaves state Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown, who is expected to run even though he has not officially entered the race, with little opposition in the Democratic primary.

“It is with great regret I announce today that I am withdrawing from the race for governor of California,” Newsom said in a statement. “With a young family and responsibilities at City Hall, I have found it impossible to commit the time required to complete this effort the way it needs to — and should be — done. This is not an easy decision. But it is one made with the best intentions for my wife, my daughter, the residents of the city and county of San Francisco, and California Democrats.”

Although Newsom had been effectively running for more than a year, his campaign never gained much traction. Even in his hometown, which Newsom touted as a model of cutting-edge policies, his candidacy was widely derided among civic insiders.

Perhaps most telling was the absence of support from the major San Francisco donors who helped underwrite Newsom’s successful campaigns in the city. He also drew relatively few endorsements from the ranks of his fellow elected officials.

Newsom had repeatedly told those close to him that he did not want to embarrass himself in the governor's race.

Three hours and counting....

Just got back from the Roxie where we saw The Yes Men Fix The World which was so fucking awesome and hopeful and happy making. I love those guys so much. It's interesting to see it a week after the Michael Moore movie, which according to hubby, was a total downer. Michael shines the light on the corruption and greed. The Yes Men do something similar, but it also leads to people laughing AND taking action.

Afterwards there was a Q&A with one of the Yes Men as well as a guy from Rainforest Action Network.

Apparently there was some Zombie Action taken today against Chase in return for their subsidizing of Moutain Top Removal Coal Mining.

I need to buy some make-up for tomorrow. Sebastian says to come over around 1245PM and we're going to come into the city the long way around. Either way---Halloween is ON!
