Blog Reader Appreciation Day Part 2

I did this a couple of weeks ago and people seemed to like it.  Or maybe they just really liked those cats.  

Doesn't matter... point is, I decided to do it again. So no matter why you're here, hopefully you'll find your cup of tea.
Cheer up.  Your day can't be worse than these people's:

People Who are Having a Really Rough Day

Well, that's weird.  I don't have kids and maybe you shouldn't either:

I'm not sure why you came here but luckily, I've got you covered:

Ways to Get Scary Drunk on Halloween

DIY Halloween Jars

Funny and Creative Halloween Costumes

That's probably because you're the only one who throws a Thanksgiving party.  But for you lone overachiever out there, I've got you covered too:

Let's start here: if you're thinking about painting a picture with your child's butt, put the baby down now; it's already been patented.

Seriously.  Last week at work I found a patent for a method of "painting with the posterior of an infant."  And you thought our government wasn't good at handling important issues...

This weekend, Chicago was the picture perfect fall scene for Halloween activities...

... so we spent it as I'm sure many did: Saturday evening started with sushi and fried rice at a Japanese steak house, continued on to a few O-bombs alongside the Little Mermaid and Batman, and ended with this:

On Sunday, we tried Rockit Bar and Grill's legendary brunch, which has been on my to-do list since the ladies at the Bloody Best introduced it in September.

Before I moved to Chicago, brunch was just a way to say "I'm eating Cheerios at noon because I slept in too late."  Now, brunching is a serious and professional hobby of mine... and Rockit certainly made it on the short list with its elaborate five dollar Bloody Mary bar (for me) and humungo omelettes (for Derrick).

We just spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the weather and being touristy in our own city.

And what a wonderful city Chicago is.

That's all I've got... no costumes, no pumpkins, just some fall weather and mid morning indulgence. Does this mean we're getting old?

Hope you have a spook-tacular week!
Anyone being anything good this for Halloween this year?

Also, linking up with Sami because even though I didn't get into any shenanigans, I did have a weekend.
