Last night at 9:34, Sean and I were sitting listening to Fresh Air from NPR. My cell phone rang which was odd. There was no one who would call at that time of night this close to Halloween. It was a political call asking me to vote no on Prop 8. I very kindly explained that I no longer lived in California and had already voted in Colorado. She explained what the people who support Prop 8 are doing to get out the vote thus their measures. She then asked me to tell my friends and family in California to go and vote. I do think that get out the vote measures are good. I do not however believe I should be called after 7:00 PM or even on the voter roles still in LA County. I don't know how voter rolls are purged. I am still getting e-mails from the LA County Democrats and the lieutenant governor of the state.

There has got to be another person on the planet who has my problem. I am physically unable to wear shoes other than my Rainbow Sandals. I could probably buy them multiple times a year I wear them so much, instead of every May. Since May in the closed toe shoe department, I have bought a pair of Mephisto Mary Janes, a pair of Padigonia ballet flats, and some Clarks Slip On Loafers. They all cause me to blister in different parts of my foot. Today I went to The Walking Store; I had my foot measured (I do know my actual shoe size 7 1/2 or an 8 so the wrong size shoe isn't an issue ) tried on about 6 pairs of shoes. There were only three pairs of shoes that possibly could work. One pair was so ugly that there is no way I would ever spend $119 on them. I liked two pairs one is $124 (I need to see if we have the money) the other pair is a pair of clogs that are $190. I haven't gone absolutely nuts. There isn't any way on God's green earth that we can afford those. I don't know how I am going to cope with the cold coming on.

So I finished my fall chevron scarf just in time for the weather to get cold. I have been wearing my scarf constantly due to the cold. A daily high of 58 degrees Fahrenheit when it is grey and damp is cold for me. I don't do seasons; I'm from FL. The actual change in weather and being with Sean everyday has put me into a holiday mood. I am happily knitting on Christmas projects, Jen's shawl has four of nine repeats done. I then have to make a sweater for my mom and maybe two pairs of socks. I definitely need to finish Sean's pair.
I bought lighter fluid for the lighter the other day so I have been able to burn candles, which is something I've missed doing. We just need to find appropriate smelling candles to cover up the smell of cooking bacon.
