Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer


On a note related to My mom found my blog!, I found out today that monstersocks went to high school with one of my coworkers.

kfg was a lot of fun last night. jimbexleyspeed made his amazing white castle stuffing (significantly more beef than most average stuffing) and there was plenty of other food too (I brought doughnuts but monstersocks didn't know about the potluck nature of the evening until we were driving over.) sxoidmal got some pictures online in record time.

Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

The scene introduces living.

Invader Zim coming to DVD next year (you'll have to scroll about halfway down the page, link by way of greenpuppy)

I went to the grocery store tonight and used the automated checkouts and there were no idiots using them. I just walked up to the machine, bought my groceries and left. Amazing.

Not much exciting to report from this weekend. On Wednesday I'll be heading over to dear old Macalester to take part in some sort of career fair. I'm going to be sitting behind a table answering questions for potential comp-sci graduates. I don't know how much help I'll be able to offer since I haven't really looked for a job since '96 (and I think the market was a bit different back then) but I'll give it a try.

Trying to do some cleaning tonight, mostly motivated by the fact that I can't find the damn battery charger for my little digital camera. I've got until the current battery dies to find it (or I'll have to end up buying a new $45 charger which will cause the lost one to mysteriously reappear somewhere I've already looked.)

I've discovered what I want for Christmas.
