Meet Jack

Jack O'Lantern. He's our latest addition. I went to a "punkin' carvin' party" at my friend R's house yesterday afternoon - he was even nice enough to scoop all the pumpkin guts out for everyone. We all sat around eating and drinking with sharp utensils in our hands. Luckily, there was no blood involved.

After Scott got home from work, we went to a neighbor's house where they had a farewell party for some neighbors who are moving to a new condo downtown. The guys who are moving were in costume for Halloween, probably (hopefully) for the sake of the kids at the party. It's sad that we're losing a gay couple from the block. The neighborhood HAS been going downhill lately.

After that, we moved the party to another neighbor's house, where we sat around talking and drinking some more wine. It wasn't until this morning that I realized I really didn't eat dinner last night. I had a couple of pieces of spanikopita, some crackers and cheese, a few stuffed mushrooms, and some bread. And wine. I feel a little fuzzy today.

And how was YOUR weekend?

Sounds like a bittersweet weekend... Bummer the neighborhood is turning a wee bit more hetero.

What is spanikopita anyway?

Sorry to hear that you're losing the "gayborhood." But hey, you guys could be a good selling point for those moving. ;-)

Sounds like you had a fun time. It must be the grin he has, but my bets are on "Jack" that he's gay.

Rey: spanikopita (am I spelling that right?) is a Greek dish - layered phyllo dough and spinach and garlic etc.

Hi Jack. Have a little spanikopita. I hate losing good neighbors... they're not easy to come by.

And hold onto R for dear life - anybody willing to scoop out his friends' pumpkin guts is worth his weight in stuffed mushrooms.
