I'm sad and happy that TAD is moving back to October. Great that it's back around my birthday which always makes for a great celebration but October is hell on trying to find a babysitter that'll stay awake for 8 nights until I roll in around 2 in the morning! HAHA!

I'm thrilled, I strongly prefer it in October - being right before TIFF was really crazy and I love the crisp October weather for the scariness.
