Totally Random

Random 1: Tomorrow I fly out to Boston for a meeting of the American Association of Variable Star Observers. I’ll be their until mid day Sunday. If you want to get together, let me know. I may be planting myself at a pub on Sunday to work and chat.

Random 2: There is an interview of yours truly over at Books and Ideas with Ginger Campbell, MD. Give it a listen 🙂

Random 3: I was traumatized by tricker-treaters tonight. Over 200 kids in 3 hours. We went through 8 bags of candy, and reduced our selves to pulling out our personal candy stashes, and when we were bombarded with 15 kids at once and only had 5 pieces of candy left, they got snack bags of potato chips. We then turned off all our lights and hid. And this was night 1! Our town has TWO nights of tricker treating. I don’t get it. I don’t like it. Tomorrow, however, I’ll be on a plan (my poor poor husband, and 10 bags of candy, will try and battle the daemons, zombies, witches, and other customed kiddies).

    Of course you could always have your husband pose with plumbing tools in hand at the front door! That ought to scare the bejeezis outta them! 😀

    And you could set up a telescope and show them Comet Holmes…
    Now -THAT’S- a treat!

    Well, I scared the trick or treaters that I saw – I had my hair dyed into flames and wore flame contact lenses for a party…
