A few weekends ago, TheBoyFriend and I were invited to a dinner party at our friend's house. The meal was Caribbean inspired and fantastic. You can read all about it here. Our hostess served Pina Coladas and Red Stripe. The guests brought multiple bottles of wine. There was a karaoke machine. This is what happens when grown men partake in too much of the vino. Enjoy!

I just sent the following email out to all of the students and their parents in my Advisory Group (Homeroom). What have I gotten myself into???
Canned Food Drive + You = Pie in Chez's Face
Due to the shortage of food in the food pantries, Student Council would like to take-on a pre-Thanksgiving Food Drive. They are challenging each Advisor Group to collect 5 cans of food per person enrolled in the Advisor Group. That means that our Advisor Group would have to donate 18 x 5 = 90 cans of food. If you all meet that goal by next Tuesday, then you all will get to pie ME in the face next Wednesday. I have agreed to the terms. Now I challenge you!

The other day, I noticed that I had an application update. I updated, only to find that now I can create my own character on the LightSaber application! What fun! With that said, there was only one person that we thought could become the next Dirty Jedi Character on my iPhone. Introducing...Darth Greco!
He's one diiirty Jedi!
After his entire race of people were slaughtered by the Genotians, he vowed to seek revenge on them. The Genotians populated 70% of the known Universe, inhabiting 13 planets. Consuming the lives of 400 billion beings and single handedly responsible for the extinction of over 13 different species in the known Universe, Darth Greco seeks his revenge by first mesmerizing his enemy with his rhythmic style of the Bass before handing out the enemy's punishment with The Saber!
Beware of Darth Greco. He has been spotted in the downtown vicinity of Charleston, WV-specifically the Capitol Street block between the library and the boulevard. He is not to be startled. Approach him with care. If you hear the low grumblings of discontent and disgust, move away from the Greco before you are handed out the punishment. It is wise to align yourself with his people. They will destroy those who are not among them.

Last night was the first night that Dano's Diner was reopened. And a grand reopening it was. Dano prepared a Baked Mostaccioli Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli for Krista, TheBoyfriend, and me. It was fantastic! Head on over to his blog to get the recipe and see some much better pictures. Finally, thank you, Senator McCain for FINALLY conceding and letting Dano come back to the kitchen!
I especially love that he gave me the Fiestaware plate that matched my pants! I love my red pants almost as much as I love eating what Dano's Diner is serving!

Ebby - (1/2 Chihuahua) is a small long hair black and tan. While he is 1/2 Chi, he looks all doxie. He is 5 years old.
Freight - 3 year old double dapple with blue eyes. Minature size doxie.
Both are neutured, up to date on shots, and have been well-cared for. Their owner dumped them on her mother when she decided to move north with her boyfriend and claimed she couldn't take them. The woman who has them is overwhelmed with a teenager with severe mental and physical handicaps and is in the middle of moving to Atlanta. The house they were able to find that was suitable for the wheelchair and ramp allows dogs but it increases the monthly rent and they cannot aford what they have to pay now.
Preferable if they can stay together.
Contact Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Please cross-post.

The following is an excerpt from The Oregon Mountaineer's Reflection:
I sent out a mass text message last night. I made it my facebook status this morning and it went like this, "A new day has dawned and today the work of reconciliation begins in earnest, it is our job to set the example. God be with us."
I only hope that those that "won" will not gloat, but be of the same demeanor of our President-Elect, poised, solemn, and determined to work to make this country better, more loving, and more gracious.
I hope that those that "lost" will not disengage, will not take their hurt and frustration and completely give up on the conversation. We need all voices to be heard if we are going to actually make any changes. When we stand together in a great multitude seeking to work for change and compromise and love and wholeness that is when we as a country will truly be changed.That takes all of us, all of us in the conversation, all of us talking, and most importantly, all of us listening.

Everyone had a blast at Sam's Uptown Cafe's Halloween Party! Special thanks goes out to Bon Scottscock for their musical homage to everything 80's and hair metal and to the Jagermeister and Red Bull sponsors! A fun time was had by all! I didn't win the $400 costume prize, but Chez and Macaroni did place in the top 5! Congratulations to Evan for his big win as The Joker!
