Friday Five-Hallowe'en and All Saints' Edition

1) Favorite Halloween Candy - 3 Musketeers little bars - I won't eat them any other time of year, for some strange reason.

2) Least Favorite Halloween Candy - anything nougatty - I think I'm always afraid a filling will come out if I chew on something like that. And little boxes of raisins are a crime against children.

3) Best Costume Ever - ones I made for Strong Opinions when she was a little one (Belle, Bride, Fairy Princess). I always went way overboard sewing them, but it was so much fun!

4) Worst Costume Ever - my Betsy Ross costume when I was 10 - geeky costume on a geeky kid.

5) A Saint you treasure (please feel free to use the definition of "Saint" that is meaningful to you and to your faith tradition and life experience) - Teresa of Avila - you've gotta love someone as wonderfully whacked out as she is. Don't we all need a little practical mysticism in our lives?

I was Betsy Ross too. I actually was excited about it. However,that just verifies my "geekiness" runs deep and still does!

Teresa of Avila....a good one also!

The saint I treasure was Arnold, patron saint of beer drinkers. See http://www.beerchurch.com/saint_arnold.htm for more info. Wonderful story!

Ah, John, you and my husband could bond over that one - he's a lover of good beer!
