As there is no hockey this weekend, things will be pretty quiet at the Avacious household. I'll be grading some essays and probably doing the following:
Taking several naps because this chilly, cloudy weather is making me feel like a sleepy bear.
Stopping by a Halloween party for a few minutes with the sole goal of seeing some little ones looking adorable. I will probably be dressing as Ballerina Barbie for that brief time period. Gotta use that blond wig somewhere.
Making something nice to eat. If I meet my essay quota early tonight, I'll make a proper meal, or perhaps I'll go throw something on high in the slow cooker so it can cook whilst I do essays. Seems to me that I bought some stuff for slow cooker coconut chicken or something like that.
Watching some Halloween TV. My love for Halloween movies is well known, and there's a jigsaw puzzle waiting to be finished while I watch whatever presents itself to my eyes.

On a related note, can I just say that Olive and one of the aunts singing "Birdhouse in Your Soul" on Pushing Daisies warmed my heart? That show continues to deliver the kind of quirky hilarity that I need in my TV life right now. It and Supernatural are about neck and neck for my favor. It reminds me of the years in my teenage girlhood when SeaQuest, X-Files, and Dr. Quinn were all wrestling for my attention.

Hmm. I *must* catch this Pushing Daisies sometime. My friend Laura loves it, too. You'd think with all the diverse times I'm parked in front of the TV, I'd catch Pushing Daisies. But not yet.

Also, is it just me, or has TImm Gunn's Guide to Syle fizzled and vanished?

I loved that song in Pushing Daises- it was awesome. I liked how this week got a little darker, and it looks like it might not be all romance and happiness between Chuck and the piemaker soon. Good stuff! I think I can definitely say that this is my favorite new show of the season.

Also, I think I read somewhere that they pulled Tim Gunn's Guide to Style for the time being and will put it back on when Project Runway starts. Must not have been doing that well...
