A Post-Halloween Trick

My ten-year-old daughter’s substitute teacher asked her what she was going to be for Halloween.  My daughter responded, “Lucy Ricardo, from I Love Lucy.” The substitute responded, “Hmm. I’m not familiar with that.”


“How old is this lady?” I asked my daughter.

“I don’t know. . . . She has white hair.”

“Has she been living under a rock for the last 60 years!”


We had a good Halloween.

I hope you had a great Halloween, too.  But today I’m going to “trick” you and ask that you take a survey about book blogs.  It is short and sweet and should be easy to complete.  I’ve teamed up with a couple of other bloggers (Tamara from Traveling with T, Ariel from One Little Library, and Kay from What Me Read) who are interested in market research on book blogs, and I thought the results would be informative.  As a researcher in training, doing a survey is appealing to me, even if it isn’t to you!

Click here to take the survey.

I’ll be sure to share the results with you. Pretty please?

  1. Lucy, I’m home. I cannot believe anyone with white hair does not know who Lucille Ball is. She looks cute in her costumer, as does her sister. At least she did not go as Fred Mertz. Survey is complete. Later, BTG

    1. Ha! We should’ve dressed them up as Mertz and Kurtz! When I used to watch I Love Lucy on a local station, it would be advertised as, “Tune in and watch Fred’s pants eat his tie!”

  2. A white haired lady who doesn’t know Luci!!! No reason for that; sorry, but that teacher must be culturally deprived. We had the fun of touring the Luci-Desi museum in Jamestown, NY, a few years ago: all things Luci!

    Your daughter is adorable in her Luci togs, and I am guessing she’s a unique and interesting young lady!

    1. Yes, my daughter is wonderful! I almost think that the teacher just wasn’t listening and didn’t comprehend what she said… And I’m jealous of your museum visit! I want to go to Jamestown. 🙂

  3. I love your kids’ costumes. Lucy & Ladybug are both good ideas. I’ll take your survey too and I’m interested to see the results.

  4. As a fellow researcher I couldn’t not partake in your survey!

    I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog, great posts and great pic! Looking forward to reading your blog. I have to admit, I was not familiar with Lucy before reading this, but I’m currently looking it up, so you’ve educated someone today!
