I'm back...  
Thanks, everyone who sent me birthday wishes and v-gifts last week! It was a nice, fairly low-key birthday, one of the few I've had in Sacramento that really felt as if it was taking place in the Fall instead of Summer. 63 degrees with sunny skies, instead of 85-95 degrees!

The birthday was Wednesday, and then Friday I flew off for my niece's wedding and just returned today. Tomorrow, I go back to work again-- it's been pretty hectic, lately.

The trip included a stop at a year-round Halloween store called Ghoul Gallery. I thought of bleodswean as I looked over the ghostly hearses out front and the Halloween clocks inside. The store has costumes and decorations, with themes ranging from The Nightmare Before Christmas to the more traditional Frankenstein-type stuff. There were some driveable coffins out on the street, both of them soap-box derby-sized vehicles that might or might not have been remote-controlled. What a neat place!

I'm afraid I'm overdue for bed, and barely staying awake to write this, so I'd better sign off. Hope you had a good weekend!

The store was amazing, and those clocks! I wish they had them displayed on the website, because they are far weirder and more detailed than you can imagine. There's a whole set of them by a single artist, and descriptions would not do them justice.

If you're ever up near Portland, go to that store! It's incredible!

And I am sorry I missed your birthday! I hope it was a great one (even if it was low-key).

It was very nice, and the chocolate-chocolate cake was fantastic. SO good that it was lucky I was leaving town and wouldn't be around to finish it. :O
