When I was at the College this morning, I saw a few people daring to wear costumes walking around from class to class, parading as their favourite film characters. The flavour for this year is zombies. Although zombies are supposed to be scary, some of the girls’ costumes look more like “bad hair and make-up day, look I’m a hooker,” than anything else. One costume, the wearer might as well have not worn anything at all–this is a bad thing–as her costume showed how transparent she was. Now I’m back home. I went out. I walked around a bit. I went home because I felt I had too much homework to do. The town is a buzz with the season’s activities.

Fireworks are exploding in the distant. Big fireworks; not those cheep bought in the store ones. I looked out my living room window and saw some of the flashes of light through the trees. This is why Halloween is so cool! Young kids dressed in, you got it, zombie costumes, were walking in their groups, some holding bags of candy, others holding Roman candles. The couple who dressed as angels look interesting, as their long silky robes followed them like a wave of mist. It is amazing what you can do with some coat hangers and pantihose, like building wings and vials? My favourite costume so far tonight is the little elf. A little girl had the green dress, with little pointy ears and an elfish nose with a diamond encrusted wand that as she flicks it in the air, a light on the end would flash. Very cute!

In my French homework, I discovered that the words, “voici” and “voilà” can be used interchangeably in certain statements according to my textbook! This contradicts what my French Dictionary says: Voici: here is, here are, here comes, here come….Voilà: there is, there are, there comes, there come…. Maybe I should eat some more candy?

[French homework #2] More simple questions. The masculine and feminine nouns and pronouns are still making it difficult to understand. Dealing with the article: il, elle, le, la etc., in the following sentence: Susan est individualiste et indépendante. Et Tom? Il est individualiste et indépendants aussi. *translated* Susan is individualistic and independent. And Tom? He is individualistic and independent too.
