I swear I'll stop with the lists soon, but for now, here's what I want to be for Halloween:

A flapper
A ladybug
A fairy
An elephant
Something involving leather

I was downtown this afternoon, finding birthday cards for Cindy and The Peach People. (Did I also buy a coat from GAP Kids? You bet your bippy I did.) While I was picking through the cards I starting thinking about those Create-A-Card machines that used to be in grocery stores and Wal-Mart when I was younger. I always thought those were the best, with their zingy Hallmark-y one liners and their zippy pens. I'd hover by the machine, waiting for someone to come and make a card, so that I could watch.
I haven't seen one of those things in years.
