Thank goodness it's over!

This post is a few days overdue...
Thanks for the prayers on Saturday. The 8 hour fundamentals of engineering exam was quite an experience! Hopefully I passed with the help of all the prayers, but I won't get my pass/fail score till late December/early January. So for now, it's over!!!! ... now, about that homework assignment that I put off... *ahem* ... I better get workin!

the final answer...

So, I went off to take my 8 hour engineering exam early Saturday morning leaving the task of halloween costumes to JB. I think the whole thing turned out pretty cute... although I felt the need to call him pumpkin all night!

it's just around the corner...

Halloween is rapidly approaching (as is the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam *shivers*). JB and I have now been invited to 3 costume parties... which raises the question...

What shall we be for halloween?!

Suggestions so far have included the following:
- Mac & PC (no clarifications needed on personnel if you know us!)
- the Blues Brothers (would need to find ties and hats)
- Steve Jobs & Bill Gates (similar to first suggestion although perhaps somewhat more obscure?)
- _______ - your suggestion here

I don't think he's particularly keen on attending these parties, so I need some good suggestions to spark an interest! Please help me out folks!

Background to help you think:
- I'm a few inches shorter than him
- He is of a fairly hefty build

(neglecting the heights, we somewhat resemble the Blues Brothers or Bert and Ernie in build (trade the heights on each of those pairs))

Post-season hopes dashed...

We the people of Philadelphia have once again had our post-season hopes dashed by the team we whole-heartedly supported through the entire season. Perhaps it is time to throw our focus whole-heartedly to the Eagles... perhaps they can make something happen... ... ...
