Eh.  The Dow comes and goes.

So far a few gains are holding, so the mind-blowing universe endng fiscal apocalypse shouldn't interfere too badly with the Halloween party.

Okay, so this is a bit silly, but it's true.

I'll be attending my first 'college party' come thursday.

"Now Phillip!" you might say.  "You've a undergraduate degree, you've submitted your dissertation for your masters (during which you lived a year in Northern Ireland) and you're now in Law School.  This is surely not your first party!"

Eh.  Well, yeah.  It is.

Stodgy.  Pedantic.  Boring.  What about this has yet to be made apparent?

I've always preferred the company of just a few friends.  In addition, during undergraduate I didn't have time for that manner of thing, especially from sophomore year on when I was competing in Forensics and had three jobs (four for a while, but one of those only sortof counted).

Then in Belfast I mostly just hung out with a few friends, and meddled in all manner of thing; I also had such a titanic load of speaking engagements that it boggled the mind.

So now I'm off to the Halloween party on thursday.  What does one do at these things?

I refuse to wear a trendy costume.  I will dress up as something stodgy and pedantic.

I am alarmed by the number of people who are now adopting blog format similar to my own.  Perhaps, after doing this for years, I've finally started a trend?

I was reminded yesterday of what was, quite possibly, the last perfect day that I had.

I went with Michael to Ruth's, and the three of us (with Bear the dog) had good times, including some driving about and all manner of absolutely insane laughter.  One of those situations in which you laugh so hard that you've reached the point of absurd silliness, at which no matter what is said next, more laughter is destined to insue.

We ended up playing in the sun in up on a little mountain in Mourne.  It was kindof like being a little kid; all silliness and play.  I took great pleasure in scrambling uphill a bit and leaping down at Bear, crying out, "DEATH FROM ABOVE!"

And the view... it was spectacular.

Anyway... yep.  That was a perfect day.

I'd do it again.

Never been to one. I stayed over at her place once, that's about it.

Bear has since died. This makes michael sad.

Just so. Which reminded me of the aforementioned lovely day.

I've decided to write a sappy novel that dramatizes the day in question, lends it a bit of adventure (a murder-mystery?) and then ends in a metaphysical twist wherein the characters (idealized version of the lot of us) live in that day forever.

There will also be a gunbattle.

That is an idea. The value of it will attract no comment from I.

Consider this a reply.
