Happy Halloween

Peekaboo and the Halloween puppetsI haven’t had time to do any blogging in the past few days. No time for any research, no time to answer e-mails (for which I apologize!) or blog comments, etc. My to-do list is getting longer and longer. YIKES! I have simply been ignoring it. 😉 I have been busy, busy, busy, but away from my computer. I have spent a lot of time with my MMA list friend (fun!) as well as preparing my classes and teaching.

Tomorrow is a big Catholic holiday, called Ognissanti in Italian (All Saints’ Day in English, I think), and then we have a long holiday weekend, which I plan to spend with Stefano and also doing some research…finally! In the meantime, since today I again have no time to write a serious post, I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween! (P.S. The kitty in the photo is REAL: it’s my five-month-old Peekaboo! And no, even though it’s hard to believe, I didn’t put her there, I just set up my Halloween puppets, showed her how interesting that broomstick was, and she sat right behind ’em…my perfect photogenic model! Of course, a split second after I took this photo, she started chewing on the broomstick…) 🙂
