This part of Texas finally got a rain. A whole weekend full of it. Rejoice. More importantly with chilly weather on the way, can't you just smell Halloween around the corner? Well, you all remember my little animal loving son, right? You might also recall his awesome Fawkes the Phoenix costume from last year. Yes? No? I have a pledge to myself to always hand-make the boy's costume, and for a while there it looked like he was going Ewok this year, which would have been awesome and easy to pull off. But now, much to my dismay, he wants to be Boba Fett. I can put together the body part of the costume without a problem, but the bounty hunter's helmet.... well, that's another story.
My husband claims that he can a helmet from scratch, but just as a backup plan I'm putting this out there. Anyone have a hand-me-down Boba Fett mask they are willing to trade for books? I am dead serious about this. Email me... webe(at)soon(dot)com.
But, anywho, that's enough about me. How about you guys? Up for grabs this Great Monday Give is a good paperback of the book about the little naked boy censors love to hate, Sendak's In the Night Kitchen. Anyone wanting to take this puppy home should comment on this post between now and September 25 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and anounced the following morning.
And with an all-time low comment count, the winner of last week's give is Anne. E-mail me your contact info, and I will get the book to you before the US Postal Service shuts its doors. Promise.
