Between livejournal not working and my connection going up and down constantly it's been virtually impossible for me to update or write email, so I apologize to anyone I haven't written back yet.
For Halloween I attended a party and concert at a pub here in Port Townsend called Maxwells. Many people were acting strange and there was a general negative feeling all around. Cindy and Gael looked darling, though. That and the chocolate we hoarded from the children made up for the negativity.
I did my annual routine of throwing on a mask and calling it a costume. Halloween always catches me by surprise.

Me too, I go through London withdrawals frequently.
There's a direct ferry to Victoria from Port Angeles which is about a 45 minute drive East of Port Townsend. Why do you ask? Victoria is wonderful, it's been too long since I've visited it. I used to go there every weekend, a 3 hour ferry trip (from Anacortes), but well worth it.
No cone... but my sister claims that when my hair is wet I look just like a female mallard. And other times (when my hair is dry) I can tell she is still thinking that I look like a duck, but instead of saying anything she'll get this very specific oh-my-god-gael-looks-like-a-duck smirk on her face. Then, when I call her her on it by saying, "You're thinking that I look like a duck, aren't you?" she simply erupts into laughter. She can't even talk she's laughing so hard, for a good ten minutes or so. Never fails.
