7872 - All Hallow's Eve

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Enjoy lots of candy, ghosts and goblins!





95% of Florida Power & Light's customer's should have power by November 8. (about 65% are currently without)

Set up a generator at work... phone system is still dead, so I'm back to BSO this morning, which is great for me. I really dig the gang over there.

The office will now have the internal network, a shared printer, and file server... the internet is spotty, but may be functional enough for periodic email use. Certainly good enough for them to look through contact lists and such. No Lights (save for the sun) and no A/C, but it's been rather cool so far. Toilets flush, but no drinking water or refrigeration.

The Montel Williams show will be by to do a little pre-interview taping, so that should be highly entertaining... I'm rather glad I'm missing that. Folks are bringing 2 sets of clothes, one for skunk-work, the other for possibly appearing on camera. Big Kahuna is flying to New York sometime this or next week for taping there... broadcast is set for the top of December.



Flashback to last year -


I wonder why Man-Bat didn't get all kinds of cool man-based gizmos... A Man-mobile, man-cave, the "Man Signal" or Manarangs?

Man-Bat


Thank goodness that all major transforming monsters keep their pants on, for dignity's sake. It wouldn't do to have the Hulk, Mr. Hyde, Man-Bat or Wolfman running around with their winkies flapping in the wind.




clown babies and multicolored skeletons.
Have a great and safe holiday!


safety tips and tricks for Halloween:


  1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead.

  2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

  3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.

  4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, you should be very concerned. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice.

  5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off and go alone.

  6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

  7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well.

  8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET THE HECK OUT!

  9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out.

  10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.

  11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.

  12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you're doing.

  13. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at east twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

  14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, run for your life!

  15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog, anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

  16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.

  17. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased companions.

  18. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices.

  19. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight, not a candle.

  20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard.

  21. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside.




Moment of Lyric (mp3)

Bonfires burning bright
Pumpkin faces in the night
I remember Halloween

Dead cats hanging from poles
Little dead are out in droves
I remember Halloween

Brown leafed vertigo
Where skeletal life is known
I remember Halloween

This day anything goes
Burning bodies hanging from poles
I remember Halloween

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

Candy apples and razor blades
Little dead are soon in graves
I remember Halloween

This day anything goes
Burning bodies hanging from poles
I remember

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween
