My dialysis center had a costume contest this year for the nocturnal patients.  I won.  The prize was 20.00 in Stater Bros gift cards.
Here are pictures.

Yea! Way to go!

A friend and I went to watch the classic Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock at Benaroya Hall in Seattle - with music provided by the Seattle Symphony. That was a treat! Bonus points for getting stuck in the parking garage with a "bad" parking ticket, and the parking attendant employee letting us go for free!
