"blah blah blah halloween crap"

I love it when photo requests don't try to make an event sound any more exciting than it is. As this was my fourth, and last, Halloween assignment of the year, my creativity was, well, weak. (I won't even show you the other two assignments.) Fortunately Glinda was there to save the day with her amazingly fluffy pink dress. (Thanks, copy desk, for teaching me something new: it's not Glenda, as I've assumed for the last 23 years, but Glinda.)

Here's the first of the kids-in-costumes events, from the zoo this weekend. I'll admit, it was pretty darn cute.

Now that Halloween is over, bring on the charity turkey dinners, and the long lines to see Santa. I'm ready.
