The night has fallen and my eyelids are not far behind, but before the slumber of ages falls over me, I must fulfill my promise and offer up the following pictorial of the previous weekend.

My Halloween adventure began as almost all evenings do, happily straddled over a barstool watching the wonder that is closed captioned Simpsons while being plied with liquor by a bar staff beyond par. It takes a level of trust so many of us ignore, to take in one’s favorite reality blurring intoxicant without worrying about a certain level of tampering.

In this stew, I made my appearance doing my best to attire myself according to period, to a certain level of success. With Spin Doctors playing a private rotating session within the bounds of my temples I sauntered my way in, mumbling…”Gee Mr. White, if Lois and Clark get all the good stories I’ll never be a good reporter!”
My place as the least photogenic man alive still holds.
Adding insult to injury: The current view from the webcam above this café computer:
And thus the pictorial ends. The words will begin again, shortly after I gather enough sleep to find them.
