A little of this, a little of that:
--For the first time since I've been in this house, I actually had candy to pass out (though I didn't get back from buying said candy till 8:15 tonight). I had no takers, however; the lack of porch lights on in the neighborhood--combined, no doubt, with the fact that so few people actually know each other out here--probably kept most trick-or-treaters away. I hope my friends like Kit Kat bars, because I sure don't want to eat them all myself.
--Happy 35th anniversary to KNTU, the only real jazz radio station in the Metroplex, and my former employer during college.
--Speaking of KNTU, my ghost story about the station's former home, Smith Hall, is finally up, a year after I started it.
--Also on the subject of the ol' alma mater: UNT won another football game last night; that's four wins in four conference tries, which evens their record at 4-4. Two more wins and we're eligible to go to a bowl game; if we win out, the New Orleans Bowl is ours again.
--Oh no, it's Daylight Wasting Time again. The fact that it gets dark before I finish teaching only reminds me that I work too much. No more denial for me until April.
--Chipotle changed their Halloween promotion this year; they decided not to do "Boo-Rito Day" (where you got a free burrito if you dressed up as one), opting instead for an election special where you buy one today, keep the receipt and get a free one on Tuesday. Their explanation for the change was that "the election is scary enough." I'm just glad we found out about the change before getting a whole bunch of foil, and especially before adorning ourselves with it. Nonetheless, the freebie on Tuesday will be nice.
