The weekend was a busy one with Roger Kimball's future daughter-in-law turning six. She had a great time and so did the rest of us. The birthday celebration is still ongoing as our parish priest was recently made a monsiegnor by Pope Benedict XVI and he gave the kids the day off from school to celebrate.
Mr. P and I woke up this morning realising two thing : We are under orders to celebrate and Octoberfest, until today, has passed us by. Only a measly three beers have been consumed in our home during the entire month. Since all the sewing is done for the children's costumes and there is no need to operate any other heavy equipment, Mr. P has decided to go as Andrew Cusack for Halloween. I am going as Andrew Cusack's date (scroll down a bit as the photo is on the lower righthand side). And Misspent always wonders why Mr. Cusack speaks so highly of Bavarian girls? If you have a chance, the Social Affairs Unit has a post that explains Misspent; Christie Davies visits Edvard Munch by Himself at the Royal Academy and considers the three curses of the Scandinavian Man; Anxiety, Alcohol and Scandinavian Women.
Due to the Alito nomination, the Card's are in very high spirits and they are promising to entertain you today. Questions and anwers I believe are on tap for you. Pale ale and bitters for the P's. Goodnight!
