There are a lot of things on my mind. Little slivers of insignificant babble vying for position at the starting gate of my mouth. PLACES!

I was Maleficent in the Costume Knock-Down Drag-Out. I won third. I was trounced by a predictibly adorable baby chicken and baby spider. So if you discount the babies on account of cuteness and, you know, size... I won. And I didn't even have to turn into a dragon at the end...

There were other worthy opponents that I won't detail here on account of laziness. Suffice it to say that there were others. And that the other notable event of last night was the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert that I did not attend. Which brings to mind, through some random force of whimsy, memories of every other concert I've attended. I had thought I was rather a concert-going novice but, upon reflection, I seem to have something of a habit going on.
