Monday we had the opportunity to go to "The Late Show with David Letterman." I registered us online and Todd got a call and was told we got some tickets (he had to answer a question correctly). The tickets are always free but a lot of the time people just go early that day to try and get tickets; our way was easier. The tickets that we got were awesome! There was only a small handful of us that got them and we got front and center (we also were able to use the bathroom). We had a pretty good time, met some very nice people and laughed (even when we didn't think something was funny, or in my case, didn't get it). I got all stressed out because they kept giving us all these rules on how to act, what to say, what not to say... it was all so stressful. The guests were Michael J Fox and Shawn White (whose a twig without his snow gear). Loved Michael, funny and a very strong person. Hopefully we get on tv... dvr us for friday nights show:)
Wednesday was our annual carving pumpkin night. This years theme was "Faces" (although I didn't realize that until we were done). Todd did that one guy from "The Office" and I did a traditional jack-o-lantern face and a dog face pumpkin. This year wasn't our best year but I still think they turned out pretty good. I did a simple face because I thought I would be carving the dog face but the small pumpkin was rock hard, so I drew on the face instead (it kind of looks like Gus, when he has a haircut). We had a good time! I just want to inform everyone that next year (if I am by any of you) we will be hosting a Halloween Party. My mom always hosted one when I was growing up so I have decided to continue the tradition. All in attendance must dress up, bring a pumpkin to carve, bring good food, dance, bob for apples and play other games. So next Halloween, my house, be there. But until then, the Altoms in New Jersey wish you all a very spooky and fun Halloween! BOO!
