Happy Halloween to you and yours.

And remember, as my mother always said, don't eat all of the candy in one sitting.

Even The New York Times loves Jordan Catalano

"This life has been a test. If it had been an actual life, you would have received actual instructions on where to go and what to do."

The Times gets all nostalgic about Angela Chase and "My So-Called Life" just in time for the spanking new box set to be released tomorrow. I myself have the original box set, released five years ago with absolutely no bonus features. The new set will include all kinds of cast interviews and bonus footage. Which will just serve to remind me of how much I miss flannel.

In summary

Did you know they now have a test to determine if you have the flu? And they now have a prescription medicine specifically for the flu? However, the catch is, the test only works within the first two days of symptoms. After that, the test isn't conclusive and they won't give you the medicine. Wow. How much do I wish I'd known that two days ago?

So in summary? It's probably best to just get the damned flu shot.

Things I've Learned on My Way to 30 (otherwise known as my second annual 29th birthday)

The quest for the perfect pair of jeans never ever ends.

I was right back in high school: nobody ever really uses algebra.

You can be too old for some clothes.

There's a difference between a job and a career. And that difference can be felt.

My bra-less days (if ever there were any) are long, long over.

Even when you grow up, eating all of the Halloween candy in one sitting will still make you sick.

There's less reason to get embarassed as I get older. People are human, nobody is perfect. And who cares what they think anyway?

Moisturizer is very important.

So is sunscreen.

I'm still going to get wrinkles.

Having a baby doesn't really change everything. But it makes things a lot sweeter.

The world may never be fair, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep trying to make it that way.

Tattoos don't look that weird on grandmas.

I don't care if I'm too old for pigtails.

We'll never stop needing help from our parents. Especially if they can wield a chainsaw and a sewing machine with equal skill.

There's no such thing as enough shoes.

As much as I try not to pass judgement on other people for the way they live their lives... some people are just stupid.

80's fashion didn't look good then, and it definitely doesn't look good now.

There may actually be a heaven. And it's called Retirement.

Forever really isn't that long.
