Dear Charlie:

Are you seeing this? Are you seeing 8-0? Because I'm seeing it, and I almost can't believe my eyes!

Don't get me wrong. These last two games have definitely been Cardiac Chiefs games. They've made us nervous. But my boys have clung tenaciously to whatever lead they've been able to muster and damn if they don't just keep coming up with ways to win.

God love 'em. I sure do.

In other (less heart-pounding) news, ghost tours may be over for the season. We're tentatively planning at least one tour Friday night (technically November, but just after Halloween), but weather may make that moot. We'll just have to see. It's been something of a rollercoaster this year with us trying out a new town, and while we've made a profit, I don't think we'll be going there again. Which is good news for me because, hey. Gas money.

The opportunity I mentioned a few posts ago didn't pan out, but I'm not too downcast. It was a shot in the dark, anyway. I'm too stoked about my Chiefs being up to bother about such a piddly thing. Eeee!

Also, we're already thinking about DickensFest, and we're always happy about that. As much as I love the history and costume-y nature of the ghost tours, I think I like DickensFest a little more, just because it's only the one weekend, not counting rehearsals. It doesn't steal two months of my life at my favorite time of year like the ghost tours can do.

Eh, either way.

Also, I'm in the odd position of rooting for the Redskins right now. Why, yes, they just happen to be playing the Broncos. Why do you ask? Also, go Steelers! You can totally make a comeback against the Faders!

Found myself rooting for all sorts of teams that don't usually get my love this year. Heheh. Anything to help my boys. I love it! GO CHIEFS!

My Dearest Charles:

6-0.

Take a look at that scoreboard down in the sidebar. It says 6-0. I love it. I LOVE it. Our defense is just smothering offenses. Our special teams are more than pulling their weight (did you see that beautiful wrap-up tackle by Colquitt the Beast??) and winning the field position battle. Our offense struggles in the second and third, but when our D gives them the ball on a turnover, they've done great turning those takeaways into points.

We. Are. Clicking.

I love it. Woot!

Okay, now that I'm done gushing, I've got some good stuff going on personally, too. Keep your fingers crossed, folks. I may have some good news for ya.

On the other hand, ghost tours seem to be doing well. We've had some good people coming through that have really enjoyed our stories, and that's what we like to hear. We always do better ourselves with a receptive audience. However, I will admit that kit-made moccasins are not made for gravelly, rocky terrain. Just sayin. My character longs for the grasslands of her youth.

Screw it. I'm too stoked about my Chiefs to think of anything better to say. I'm actually rooting for the Patriots today to knock the Saints down (normally, I'd totally be rooting for the Saints) to 5-1. I think it's probably too much to ask of the Jaguars to put the stop on the Broncos, but hey. Crazy dreams are made of weirder stuff.

6-0! Did I mention 6-0? Because... 6-0.
