8/10/2005 - Tattoo
Since Lhallow posted her tattoos to her blog, I'm going to be a copy cat and post mine in my blog.
My choice in tattoo showcases excactly how much of a geek I am.
It's the Imperial Emblem from the Star Wars movies. Have a look:
I also plan on getting a Jack 'O Lantern on my left shoulder
someday. Then I'd have tattoos of the two things that shaped the
madman that you see before you now.
7/19/2005 - Bored Today
So, I'm kinda bored today. I went
to work this morning and had to come home because I need to work a
split shift today. What it boils down to is we don't have enough
equipment to go around sometimes, so I'll occasionally do a split shift
and come back in the afternoon to work when equipment is available for
me to use. Beats sitting there with no work. Which brings
me to this...
The other day I ordered about 200 LEDs from
ebay. I got 50 Green, 50 Red, 50 Orange and 50 UV LEDs on the way
from Hong Kong so I can make some LED spotlights to help eliminate some
of the floodlights I used last year. That should help save
electricoty. I think I'll have enough leftover that I could sell
some on eBay or even make some more lanterns (again, for sale on eBay)
to try and recover the costs of buying them. At least when I have
no work to do at work, I can sit there and solder up some LED
spotlights to pass the time.
So, I see some people on my
friends list posted Halloween costume photos. I think I'll do the
same. This is my "Zombie-F" costume that I used from 2000 - 2002,
and I think I'll be bringing out of retirement this year. I liked
It's too steamy outside to do much of anything, so I am DEFINITELY
going downstairs to watch my Netflix movies until it's time to go to
work. I promise.
7/18/2005 - I MUST Be Hyper or Something!
I tell you, I WAS just gonna come home
from work and take it easy, but sitting around doing nothing is just
not me. I get bored and need to do something.
So today I
broke out the Columns for the cemetery and made sure the internal
thunder and lightning machine in them still worked. I also
adorned them with some spanish moss which makes them look completely
Photobucket album is HERE.
TOMORROW, I'll take a break. NOT!
7/16/2005 - I'm Heeeeere!
Haha! Finially, the Zombie has come back to BLOGGING!
Ok, so I've not been in here yet, but that sounded pretty cool, nonetheless.
Well, since alot of the other bloggers have posted pics their first
time around, I'll do the same. This is a pic of me that I
actually like. It's from a band performance back in May of
2000. I had RED EYES! EVIL!!!:
Let's see, more about me...
I'm a rabid Halloween nut. Who here isn't, right? I love to
decorate as well as read about the history of the observance.
I've read "Halloween: An American Holiday, An American History" by
Lesley Pratt-Bannatyne, David Skal's "Death Makes a Holiday", (most of)
"Halloween and Other Festivals of Death and Life" edited by Jack
Santino, and "Halloween: Customs Recipes and Spells" by Silver
I've been hauting my yard since 2001. I
started with just two tombstones, a strobe light and a fogger and have
since moved up to having animated props and a full-blown graveyard.
I guess that's all for now. I'll probably use this blog as a
propbuilding diary of sorts, chronicling my misadventures in
Feel free to say "hi" while you're here!
Just me rambling on about my mis-adventures in propbuilding.
