today is sven's birthday! we began the day with homemade crepes, and we've got a saint cupcake cake, oasis pizza, and a dinner at assagio scheduled. we eat well on birthdays. :)
last night we celebrated halloween by watchingthe attic expeditions and playing a game of gloom w/ kristen & todd, who brought a pumpkin cheesecake. alas, michaelmas had to work. i couldn't get together a costume this year, so i decided i was a cylon sleeper agent. but todd was a communist, kristen was an international woman of mystery, and even sven wore black-and-red striped gloves and socks.
we had a few trick or treaters, but most of them were older boys with hockey masks. one particularly belligerent group wanted to know why we had two bells and wanted to challenge "no on 43." after they left, we discovered they had smashed the lid of my pumpkin in the street. :(
