In honor of Halloween, a shout-out to my homie Pat Robertson!

Running a quick review of my to-do list from last year, appears I’m still slacking off in the same area.

Tsk tsk, Alice. Gotta do better by next October!

Alice’s To-Do List:

Leave my husband(Though technically, I suppose we left each other.) 

Kill my children(Murdering my darlings counts, yes?)

Practice witchcraft(In my experience, Wiccan spellcrafter and amateur mixologist have much in common, including reliance on pomegranate pips and an excess of fresh-squeezed lemon juice.)

Χ Destroy capitalism

Become a lesbian(More than once, happy to report!)


VERDICT: 4 out of 5

(Not too shabby!)

  1. While I’ve failed Pat Robertson’s other expectations here, I have some fabulously witch-y shoes so that counts. And with each student I can trip into questioning American values – that is, Americans’ insistence on dollar value as the bottom line – (I hope) I’m chipping away at capitalism!

    Hmm. Maybe I can find a t-shirt with “Lesbian” emblazoned across the chest?

    Because I hate to let a fella down.

  2. Lesbian, to begin with, so no husband to leave or children to kill! Ahead of the game! 🙂 I do respect nature, and believe herbs can be combined to heal and promote health, so, I’m on the way to witchcraft! All right, now, let’s brain-storm about that nasty ol’ Capitalism, shall we?
