Halloween is for children. And I guess for dogs too, but I don't think they enjoy their costumes as much as we do. I used to love Halloween, it's the only day of the year our neighbors let us kids into their houses and then give us candy (and we don't even have to go in the back room with Mr. Dixon). And what isn't great about a holiday where we can wear/be whatever we want and eat as much free candy as we want? But now that I've reached puberty (well, I haven't but, but most of my classmates have), it's hooker everything: hooker nurse, hooker pirate, hooker vampire, hooker veterinarian, hooker supreme court judge. Only for the girls, though. The boys still have normal costumes, but everything for girls has high heels, mini skirt, boobs, underwear, like all we girls want to be is hookers.
This year I'm going to be a hooker, too. But a real one. I'll have a black eye and torn clothes, and an angry expression on my face, and I'll have a gun too, to kill any pimp or john who messes with me. In fact, I'm going to be Aileen Wournos, who was supposedly a serial killer, but really it was a spree killing. She was a prostitute who killed rapist/johns - seven of them. She got punched or raped one too many times. Then they executed her. A horrible tragedy. Cause she was not finished with her work.

NOTICE!!! Two upcoming bride expos demand massive protest and actions to save these women. I can't believe they are advertising for this. How dare they just sell women like that right out in the open like it's okay? Just because you call her a bride doesn't make it not selling women, and these poor women probably came here thinking they were going to work as waitresses or in a factory. Traffiking is trafficking and it's wrong - no matter how much cake and lace you put on it (and I DO love cake). DON'T let this offense to women and girls everywhere go unanswered. We will be gathering at the dates and places listed below. If you don't want to get arrested you can peacefully protest (in the doorways - as thickly as possible). If you are underage, like me, then you don't have to worry about your permanent record--meet us at 9am on the 23rd in front of the Jaws ride. The liberation of enslaved people is never wrong - that's Ethel's Law!
Next week there's one in Los Angeles, and in October in Orange County (details are below - so be sure to come if you're anywhere close). But they have these bride expos everywhere, so plan to go to the local one if you can't make the ones here.

Just because you lose your job and don't have money is not a reason to kill all of your children.
If Michael Phelps has to apologize for smoking pot, then the rest of us should have to apologize for NOT winning 8 gold medals.
When Ashleigh said she wanted to be a cosmetologist, Angela, who wants to be a lawyer, said "that should be your second choice."
If cows have to have babies to make all that milk, what happens to all those babies?
Does the kind of shoe you throw at a politician matter? Which makes a better statement, a child's shoe or a cowboy boot with spurs?
First Bush and his party had a giant party and trashed the country, and now they won't vote for the stimulation package so ALL children are going to be left behind. It's not all bad though, cause us children in Orange County finally know what it's like to have a snow day.
