I refused to go to Midway Mall... for a few days I was afraid I was fired, but everything worked out. My district manager was actually really nice about it. I get to stay at my store and I am promoted to fulltime. Woohoo, that means insurance and 401K now. All the girls were really excited that I get to stay. I really like all of them alot.
The last few days were alot of fun... on thursday Kenz went to the circus w/ my mother and since I refuse to attend them (I'm deathly afraid of clowns, circuses abuse their animals, and I'm terrified the elepants will stampede), I went to the KMFDM show instead. Underground records gave me 2 free tix for promoting for the upcoming pigface show. I went w/ inkyfingas. lucidogen and his friend met us there. I also saw ripmeinpieces, but only briefly :(... I have never gotten to see KMFDM live before... they sounded great.
Friday, I volunteered at Kenz's school to help w/ her halloween party. I made the cutest little treats for the class... it was these round metallic pumpkin holders filled w/ candy, stickers and glow in the dark scorpions... I spent 2 hours on them and they turnded out super-cute. I helped walk the kids around the school in a parade to show off their costumes, played "halloween bingo" (kenz looooves bingo), and went to the gym and played other halloween themed games. After we got home and ate dinner I took Kenz, my 2 nephew, and my niece trick-or-treating. They WALKED house to house and wanted to stop 10 minutes early because they were tired! What's wrong w/ these kids?!?! When I was little I RAN house to house and wouldn't stop until all the houses turned off their lights and I didn't see any other trick-or-treaters out!
Afterwards Kenz's father picked her up for the weekend so inkyfingas and I headed to the Phantasy to see the Filament 38/Decoded Feedback/Razed in Black show. That was a really good show too. I got there a little too late to see F38, though. I have seen Razed in Black on a few other occasions, but I have never gotten to see Decoded Feedback before. I got lots of good pix at each show... can't wait to get them developed.
Saturday I was kinda tired, so inkyfingas and I just went to see the director's cut of "Alien" when I got off of work. Afterwards he just dropped me off at home and I went to bed.
I was discussing Frida Kahlo w/ my sister the other day and my daughter walked in the room... she goes "Oh, I know her... she's the one that was hit by the bus"... and then proceeded to tell me all about her... I was floored. Her first grade art teacher taught them about her. This was very surprising considering what a controversial artist she was... w/ her lesbian affairs and often offensive & uncomfortable subject matter. I am very impressed w/ her school system for allowing this to be a part of the curriculum.
My feet hurt... I gotta quit wearing huge heels to work.
