Halloween Party (delayed posting)

The hosts! the Phantom and his love My friends, Deena and Joe, hosted a wonderful Halloween party at their beautiful townhouse in Old Town Alexandria. Here they are in their costumes, the Phantom of the Opera and his muse, Christine Daaé.

Most of the homeowners on Lee Street stock about 1000 pieces of candy to accommodate the crowd.

Talk about historically accurate!

Now I was the other end of the extreme.  I went as an anime girl, but none of the party folks knew what anime was so I told them I was a naughty catholic schoolgirl-short plaid skirt, white kneehighs, chunky black shoes, white blouse and pigtails! I also added a chainsaw and a biker jacket.  Never let it be said I didn’t go all out or to excess.  I think someone snapped some picutres of me and one of the guest who came dressed as a priest!

  1. I seen a thread on this webmaster forum today talking about Local RSS and was wondering if anyone know of any good site that have local feeds that I can use for my wordpress blog plugin wp-o-matic?

    I appreciate your help. I tried the common sense way by searching google and can’t seem to find anything with any value to it and mainly I want the top rss I can find, but really one site so far.

    Also, I don’t see an rss feed for this forum. Do you have a rss? If so I would like to subscribe! Your forum seems pretty cool so added ya’ to my favorites.
