A gay man returned to Bug's neighborhood after a 20 year absence. I remember calling him "Booby" when I was a kid but have since discovered that his name is Robert. So was Booby his nickname or was I just being mean? Bug refuses to ask, so in the meantime we just stare at him through the mini blinds.

The more time I spend working on my Master's Degree, the more I become convinced that GROUP PROJECTS FUCKING SUCK. I am of the opinion that if you want it done right, do it yourself. Personally, I don't care if the other people contribute. In fact, I'd rather do all the work and make an A than have them drag it down with their "ideas." What burns me up, though, is when they won't work and then complain that I took over. What? Or if they're a "taker over" and their ideas suck. Collaborative learning works well in theory but not in reality. If ever I am a professor, I will always allow students the option of an individual project.

I really should not have snatched the wig off of that fake-bride last night, but I was cold! I'd gone to a Halloween "party" that turned out to be some kind of drag queen voodoo priestess and a tiny woman in black named "Mami" doing a seance with eggs and baby dolls. It was very theatrical, with the lights flickering and a radio pre-programmed to turn on and off at the right times. But really, did they need to turn the air down so low?

Today was the school's Halloween dressup day and some professors came in (shudder) revealing superhero outfits. I glued tiny horns to my head but wore normal clothing, as if nothing were at all amiss. During class, one horn fell off, so I pulled the other one off...and in doing so, ripped off a circular patch of skin and hair. See, this is what happens when you super glue things to your head. Sigh.
