Well, this is my first official blog entry. My roommate Marla has introduced me to the wonderful world of blogs (one of many things she had introduced me to...neopets and passions are among the others). It doesn't look like anything special right now, but I'm going to try and make it look nice, so bear with me :). Midterms are over, and it's almost Halloween, which means I can spend my time doing important things like playing neopets and learning about blogs! We carved our pumpkin tonight...well, sorta murdered it (we're all forensics students), but there was some carving involved. Anyway, we won our row pumpkin carving contest, so we get entered in the rez wide contest on friday...it should be cool! Our pumpkin is very multi-faceted...it's got blood, stab wounds, oozing brains, blunt force trauma, chunky jell-o puke, rice maggots, mushroom eyes (Lara did an excellent job on those)...quite a work of art :). We also decorated the front of our house...spider webs, bloody hand prints on the windows, skeletons, etc. And the true piece de resistance was definitely the kick ass caution tape that Rachel found on the way home from class...just sitting in a puddle!! What are the odds that she would find that on the very night we were decorating our door?!? So she put that up across the front of our door...now our house looks like a crime scene...it's very cool :). A piece of advice though: don't every buy a black light from the dollar store! They suck...you may as well be sitting in the dark...Oh well...it was a learning experience. Another house in our row won the door decorating contest...there door was really cool. It was all black and orange with balloons, and a big spider and a ghost...very much in the Halloween spirit :). All in all, it was a really fun night, and the rest of the week is packed with more stuff! Haunted house movie night, halloween pub, trick or treating...it should all be a nice break from stupid school work. Well, I don't really know what else to say, so I'm gonna stop writing and go look for some blog skins to make my blog look better!
