Anybody else out there in a "swing state"? Are you getting called a dozen times a day by pre-recorded politicians and their minions? Does your voicemail have pleas from your county auditor, local party officials, pollsters, both presidential candidates, Arnold Schwarzenegger, LeBron James, and political causes you've never even heard of?

We've got the creeping crud moving through our house, including a slightly feverish and very clingy baby, and the last thing I want is to hear the phone ring every hour from sun up until after dark (and no, I'm not exaggerating). And you can't even pick up the receiver and give the robo-caller a piece of your mind.

Anybody who didn't see this coming when politicians excluded themselves from the do-not-call list, please raise your hand.

What? Nobody?

Maybe we'll just have to unplug our phone for the next few days...

And just to keep this from being an entirely whiny post, here's my Halloween costume for the office contest:

Bonus points if you can figure out which limbs are real and which are fake.

I haven't dressed up for Halloween in 15 or 20 years. I should do that more often. I even won a $40 gift card to Target. Of course I can't come up with anything at Target that I want or need, but it was cool to win a prize anyhow.

That is brilliant. Right arm you, left arm of reaper and reaper legs real. Very great concept.

Thanks katecontinued. I stole the idea from a similar alien abduction costume seen online somewhere.

I hereby award you 50 bonus points.
