the boss wishes you well on your holiday next week and a co-worker assumes she meant you were taking time after Haloween off for religious reasons and starts asking questions about Samhain.

Now Biomechanic can have that Fictional-themed bathroom he always wanted.|
The Galactika toilet seat

The KMFDM concert last night was quite good, though it did suffer a little from the "we have to control our machines so we can't move" phenomenon that afflicts some shows. It suffered more from the opening act, but the less said about that, the better.|
Later that night by sheer luck, I ended up drinking with Sascha K. You may all die of jealousy now. :-P
