General Update-y-ness

The campus visit to Illinois was wonderful. Very professional. Very well put

together. Very informative. Of course I expect nothing less from a Big Ten school. But I really think the information (overload) was helpful to Princess Girl. Definitely solidified her major choice. (At least at this point). Due to locations, we will probably not schedule another campus visit until March.

I find much humor in the fact that several newer cell phones and computers were not updated with the fact that Daylight Savings no longer ends on Halloween weekend. Although my mom’s re-updated itself back to the correct time today, new guy at work is all freaked out that his email time stamps are going to be off today. It’s an hour. Take a deep breath. Totally not the end of the world.

Fabulous Halloween party given once again by J’s brother and sister-in-law. They always decorate so fabulously. The food was good. The costumes were fun. My personal opinion is our costumes were the “witty-est”! Very funny!

Work is still very very busy. Every time I start to see light at the end of the tunnel, more work is piled on so I can’t even tell if the light is a train I need to duck or not.

I’ve been waffling about NaNoWriMo. Last year the time commitment was just too much. Do I dare wade in again this year? I have just over 12 hours to decide… and still start on time.

We went a completely different direction.

Lara Croft?

Not this year.

And J had planned to be Ace Ventura… in the pink tutu.

Not this year.

Instead, I decided on this:


And J is going to be this:


Father and daughter as a couple… deliciously creepy for Halloween.

Searching for an alter ego.

LONDON - AUGUST 11:  Former gymnast Alison Car...

So I mentioned the other day that I was leaning toward Lara Croft (or even better Claire Grant as Lara Croft) as this year’s Halloween costume. Which I still think is a fab costume idea. However, the temperatures have already started to dip far lower than I care for. (Can we please have summer all year round?) In another month, it’s going to be down right chilly.

Have you seen how Lara Croft dresses? Yeah, she’s WAY tougher than me. I’m gonna freeze my hind-end off if I wear that!

So then I thought maybe Daphne of Scooby-Doo fame. But I’m wishy-washy on that idea… and she doesn’t dress a whole lot warmer than Lara does.

You know, if you look around women’s Halloween costumes are pretty darn skimpy over all. Which is fine. But, I’m still sitting here with just a month to go with no good idea on which alter ego I should don this year.

Any ideas?

Team Unicorn – here I come!


Image via Wikipedia

Ever run across something online that you know was created with you in mind? Earlier this week on GeekSugar I found that very thing! Geek Sugar shared a link/post to this post on the Star Wars blog.  (Did you ever doubt my complete geekiness?)

Team unicorn – because geek girls are every bit as hard to come by. Dune. Stan Lee. Doctor Who. Star Wars. Seriously? I’m in heaven.

I have been leaning heavily toward Lara Croft for my costume for this year’s Movie/Cartoon Character themed Halloween party. I think I have to change this to Claire Grant as Lara Croft!
