We had a costume contest today at work. Unfortunately, the Halloween spirit never quite got me this year, so I did not partake. But I don't feel too bad because I did spend 4 hours making and decorating sugar cookies last night for our work party. And it would have been longer if Quinn wouldn't have helped. He diligently frosted ghost after ghost.

Anyway, I thought I would share my favorite costumes from this year. They are as follows:

3rd Place goes to Bob Ross who has been busily painting "happy" trees around the office all day.

2nd Place went to Jimi Hendrix. A white guy dressed up as Jimi...classic!

And the winner is:

I mean really, how could that not win??

It is Time

I won't even begin to discuss how much crap I've gotten from my lack of blogging. But I was going through a funk. Completely uninspired. But I felt a twinge of inspiration this week and so now all of you can chilly down down (as Quinn would say) for a few days because I'm about to blog.

Let the inspiration begin:

First off, I must address Monday Night Football (Thanks Lindsay for telling me that I should blog about this, I believe it helped me feel my first twinge). I got home from work on Monday night to Quinn all decked out in his Giants gear. Of course, the Giants were playing the Cowboys for a chance to be undefeated in the division. Now the game was great, but what is really great about watching a Giants game with Quinn is how nervous he gets. Literally his hands were like ice until the middle of the 4th quarter when the win was more secure. Then finally a little blood began to flow again. It is a sight to see (and feel).

Second, I'm excited for the new season of 24. Check out the trailer. It is finally almost here.

Third, for all you Lost fans out there. This is site is my new obsession. Check it out. Beware, it contains spoilers.

And lastly, I'm about to go political on the blog. Something I've never done before, but this one really had me ticked off this morning. I know I risk offending my father and my father-in-law (both fans), but it is stuff like this that makes it so I just can't stomach the guy. You don't have to support stem cell research or agree with Michael J. Fox, but goodness gracious, at least know what you are talking about before making statements like this. Maybe I'm just sensitive since the Arnetts are all too familiar with Parkinsons disease. I would be very interested to hear my Dad's take on this. Dad, care to comment?
