Happy Halloween!

It's after midnight, it's October 31st... It's now Halloween!

I love this holiday! Probably won't get much opportunity to celebrate it today, since Wednesdays are my busiest day of the week this semester, but who knows. I do know that I went to a couple great parties last weekend, and costume, while still kind of last-minute-ish, (put it together over about 2 days) is much better than last year's poor stab at Indiana Jones.

The Scrubs fans in the audience will likely recognize this clip:

May I present... myself! Zach Braff. J.D. Dr. Acula!

The costume went over really well. I was surprised by how many people liked my attempt at J.D.'s hair - I really didn't think I had the hair to pull it off, but it seemed to come across. The fangs were nice too. Something possessed me to get the nice ones when I was at Spencer's, and they basically consist of this low-melt plastic that you use to literally custom mold them to your teeth. They stay in as well as, and are no more uncomfortable than, a retainer, which made it not too much of a hardship to have them in all night.

I love Halloween...

I Have... Another Blog?

This semester I'm taking a class - IST 195. It's an "introduction to information technology" class. Yes, as anyone who knows me can tell you, the vast majority of information in this class is way below my level. But hey, it fulfills a requirement for Newhouse, one that would otherwise require me to take another math class, or a third semester's worth of a foreign language. Not exactly my idea of a grand old time. Besides, in a 19-credit semester, it's good to have one easy class.

Well, just because a class is easy doesn't mean you don't have to do anything, and for the second of 3 large projects in IST195, I have to create a blog and maintain it for three weeks. And that's exactly what I've done over at the un-creatively named "IST 195 Project 2" Blog. I could have tried to just put all my required posts in my existing blog, but separating them will probably help me keep focused on the 195 one. If the posts over there are interesting at all, I'll likely merge them back into this blog once the assignment is all said and done.

As a sidenote, the default theme I picked for the IST195 blog is pretty nice-looking. Perhaps another facelift is in the future for Dev/Null42?

V for Vendetta - Simplified

Just in case you could never quite figure out what the heck V was talking about in that movie... or if you just wanted a laugh!

Such a good movie. :)
