working on a dream

one day to go! ringo the cat says vote for obama!!

like so many folks I'm completely preoccupied with thoughts of what tomorrow will bring.

a few photos from the weekend.

bella the fairy dog greets trick or treaters and say vote obama!

friday evening was devoted to celebrating halloween. there were plenty of trick or treaters on avenue c this year. a couple of my neighbors and I hit the wig bin and provided a colorful array - if only we had had the foresight to make some wings, we could have been called ourselves the candy fairies of avenue c!

after trick or treating ended, we all checked out the halloween party other neighbors were throwing. who would have expected to see ms. pain and joe the plumber in attendance!

saturday a few friends gathered to be helper fairies and aided mj make the transition from her home of 40+ years to her new home - many hands make work light

sunday afternoon on my way home after spending most of the weekend on the east side of town, I stopped and checked out cleveland's el dia de los muertos celebration. this is the fourth year cleveland has celebrated the day of the dead. hopefully I'll find some time and put up a flickr album, until then here's a little taste:

obama and bruce springsteen were in town yesterday. since I had been running around all weekend, I elected to skip the gathering - but 80,000 other folks showed up, I'm happy to report! I was able to find this on youtube of bruce singing a welcoming song for barack and his family!

It's so encouraging to see the massive crowds that Obama turns out at his rallies. Really amazing. It must be so exciting to live in a swing state, where your vote really makes a difference! (I mean, mine makes a difference too, but Obama's going to win New York no matter what.)

The song "One day More", from Les Miserables, keeps going though my head.

dreaming along with y'all over on this side of the pond, petite souris. Got the wine in the fridge and everything. Almost there. Good luck tomorrow, will be thinking of you and all the other voters out there.

I don't believe it: I think this is the first time I've ever agreed with Scabby!

Looks like you had a good weekend, a nice balance of work and play! See you on the flip side. I like the wigs.

One more day!

Looks like you had a great weekend. Glad to see Day of the Dead is catching on there. Not to brag, but I think ours is one of the biggest and best in the U.S.

Who knew you would look so good with pink hair?? But you do!

Holding my breath......wondering wondering wondering.

Any predictions?

steve - it's nerve racking living in a swing state!!

merle - great song ....would have been a good post title today!

rlb...thank you.... I told my friends I'd pick up the champagne for tomorrow night's victory gathering at avenue c to celebrate the O man's victory!!

scabby and maurice - wish you guys could vote here in ohio!! I'm as nervous as a cat in a room of rockers about my current 'home state' - I want to be in a BLUE STATE again!!

megan - we be flipping!!

junk - I think you are right about SF's el dia de los muertos....

reya - I think I'll hold off on doing anything drastic regarding my hair color - at least for the time being. predictions: obama of course!! and if he doesn't win, folks will be questioning WHY not as he's the only sensible choice for our FUTURE and has been leading in the polls for a long while. goodness help us if the o man doesn't win, if somehow he doesn't I expect all hell may break loose.
