it is decidedly so (best halloween costume ever)

hopefully you're all too busy voting to bother looking at my blog.
but just in case, i have to share kiyomi's ingenious halloween costume.
kiyomi is 7 months pregnant. not only did she brilliantly use her round tummy to perfect effect as a magic 8 ball, but cleverly, she used it to broadcast her feelings at this timely pre-election halloween, as a magic 'no on prop 8' ball.

for those of you who live in california, you know what i'm talking about. others who don't: it's a frightening proposition which aims to write discrimination into the california constitution by making gay marriage unconstitutional. illegal. it's a giant step backwards in civil rights and wants to tell you what 'traditional marriage' should be. back up a few decades and replace the word 'gay' with 'interracial' and let's all take a lesson from history.

unfortunately, kiyomi's costume was a bit undervalued, as the 200+ kids she led in halloween activities at work aren't too familiar with the propositions. and no, it didn't get the chance to end up front page of the sf gate as kim had expected, as the 8 ball was feeling a bit exhausted, and we opted to lounge on the kiyomi-sized pink sofa and watch the ancient black and white version of 'little shop of horrors' instead of going out. my jet lag didn't complain.

oh, and by the way--i voted at 7:30am this morning. expected scary lines but instead waited for two minutes. don't delay! go vote.

I already voted AND I heard about this costume yesterday from Kim so I'm psyched that you posted pics! So glad you had a great visit, and I did get the scoopage that you're still having trouble commenting on my blog -- crazy-frustrating, and I'm sorry! Aargh!
