Halloween

I’m going as a grumpy engineer. I’ve got the mismatched plaid shirts and worn out cargo pants and everything!

In other words, I hate Halloween, always have, and chances aren’t looking good for my outlook improving. As the humor columnist in yesterday’s paper said: “Halloween is more popular than ever. Fitting too, in that it so perfectly represents the average American in 2013: frightening-looking people dressed in hideous garb–pretending to be something they’re not–going around demanding handouts.”

  1. Engineers really do hate fun

  2. I was thinking that if I skip my shower this morning, I could probably pass as a hippie.

    Unfortunately, that would involve inflicting my un-showered self on everyone in nose-shot, and there’s a very good reason why I shower every morning.
