it's been a while since i've posted, but i would be remiss in not mentioning halloween on the u.va. lawn. i think this is one of the zanier public events that charlottesville has to offer, and each year i fall more in love with it. yes there are crowds, and it is indeed a frenzy of sugar, but it is definitely the best masquerade party this side of the blue ridge! tashi offered to take tristan around to the dorms lining jefferson's historic lawn, and i must say, a big part of my heart melted seeing teenage she-wolf leading toddler jester door to door. we came home with way too much candy and at least half of it was set out to appease the candy goblins. now i am just dealing with the daily question upon waking, can i have some chocolate?
