Halloween is Here!

One of my teachers inexplicably gave me a big bag of candy corn last week. I decided I should pass it out to my fellow teachers on Halloween, as opposed to being the fat kid and eating it all by myself. I enjoy giving things to the group, and I think that the goodwill of my coworkers is more enjoyable than a pound of corn syrup sitting in my stomach. Sometimes I wonder though... worse case scenario, I bring in something that has gone bad and poison every single employee at school. Or perhaps worse, I help someone discover an allergy they didn't know they had. Keep your fingers crossed for me, ok?

Yesterday I wore my Halloween costume to school. I don't have any pictures of it to post yet, so I'll keep it under my hat for the moment. This weekend has hopefully two costume parties in store for me, so I'll have some good shots soon. This is a good time to mention my fame from last year. A picture of me sorta in my costume made it into Ashikaga Magajin(I'm pretty sure that's a pun on magazine).

It looks like its the December issue.

A picture of Tung and I is dead center. Also visible on this page is Clarence and Babs on the bottom left, pretty much everyone from last year's crew except for Mike. He loved that. A better shot of my very simple costume can be found here.

A have a couple little random things I though were cool.

Tommy Lee Jones has been doing some extensive advertising work for BOSS brand coffee. Here is his ever-cheerful mug on the front of a vending machine. Did you know that vending machines here routinely sell hot drinks in cans as well as cold ones?

A unique claw game offering caught my eye. Popples are back!
