Bow before my awesome powers of dorkiness!, originally uploaded by Hannahchan. So, um, what are you going to be for Halloween?

This might be the scariest Halloween yet. I suspect I'll be seeing a lot of Palins out there.

Xerxes still gets visitors every day, sometimes thousands a day on my flickr.

He's still being awesome.

You Had To Be There

Just random - these kill me! But I think it's only funny if you've actually read these books as a kid.

We Found It!

Hampden Grilled Cheese Cart - The Mystery

We've been hearing about this for a couple of weeks now - a street cart on the Avenue that serves grilled cheese sandwiches and fries. It appears late in the evenings on weekend nights. And people say it's AMAZING.

Imagine: You're leaving one of the bars on the Avenue, probably a bit tipsy, and then like a mirage, there's a street food vendor serving freshly made grilled cheese sandwiches...

We'll be on the look out tonight for it! Infact, it's a local tweetup.

Halloween In Hampden

Friday, October 31st, from 5-6pm, bring your kids to go trick or treating up and down Falls Rd, the Avenue and Chestnut. Merchants will have treats for the kids in costume!

Then, a costume contest, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Hampden-Midtown, from 6:30-8pm on the 800 block in front of Ma Petite Show, 832 W 36th Street. Prizes will be for Prettiest, Funniest and Most Original costumes!

Reading Club

Whoops! Totally late with this (actually thought I'd announced it already) but the Reading Pick for this month is the new Chunklet! 10% off for the month.

We'll be meeting on the last Wednesday of the month to discuss at 7pm.

It's a LOT of reading so get on it!

Come by tonight for our 16th Anniversary party. We are actually not playing Guitar Hero.

VP Debates Tonight

We're all going to the Wind Up Space to watch it! They don't have cable (we'll catch Rachel Maddow later) so it's going to be network tv on a digital projector. Awesome! Starts at 9pm.
