Bringing Back A Classic + Updated Playlist

I couldn't think of a practical way to be "Techno Panda."

Also, nobody would know what I was except maybe 2 people, and neither are going to be remotely close in proximity this Halloween. (Aug & Devin)

I've decided to bring back the Care Bear.

Specifically, Harmony Bear.
The picture to the right is in fact the exact same costume I have, just not in that form. Mine's decapitated.

Oh, and the limbs are chopped off. I did keep that pinwheel of colors intact though.

I ran into a problem today. I still have the head. I looked through my stuff to find the limbs, and I could only find one of the legs.

I guess I could be half care bear, half human?

The costume has only been used FOR REAL on two occasions.

AAA's (Asian American Association @ Ohio State) Halloween party (2006?)
There was a costume party, and EVERYONE loved our costumes (Aug & I).
We lost to some little girl in some ugly mask, and I'm pretty sure she looked better with the mask on.

Okay that last part might have been a lie, but the point is, we should have won that contest.

The second time I only wore the head piece. We were playing flag football and it was cold. It kept my head warm. I also probably played the best game of flag football I've ever played that night. And guess what? I was wearing the head piece the whole time.

For the most part, good things happen when I wear it. Yeah, we didn't win the contest, but people loved the costume. It's like winning the popular vote, but not actually winning the election. I feel you Al Gore.

I'm not expecting great things by wearing this costume. Why?

Because I know something awesome* is going to happen. (please see bottom for *)

I'm excited to celebrate Halloween again and I hope you are too.
If you aren't able to celebrate, go buy some candy and eat it.
Or throw an egg at someone/something.
What ever brings back memories of Halloween.

I hope to take lots of pictures. Maybe some videos.

Anyways, be safe and stay warm! Unless you live by the beach.

* "Awesome" doesn't necessarily mean that it will be awesome at that given moment. Something awful can happen, but after a certain amount of time it can be remembered as an "awesome" event, which would effectively make it "awesome."

I need ideas for a Halloween costume! I'm still not 100% where I'll be celebrating it, but if I am, I need a costume.

I've got a couple ideas, both are in the "unlikely" list, but ideas none the less.


-Techno Viking

Note: For Techno Viking I would need a body suit, a blonde wig/facial hair, green shorts, and some Scandinavian bling.

A friend sent me this link a while back.
It's fantastic.

I'm back. I've been back for a week and maybe one day now.

I arrived last Wednesday, and then Thursday night went up to New York City.
I had an interview on Friday, then I hung out with friends and family until Sunday.

Those few days were so difficult. Not only because of the interview, but because of jet lag.

I hung out with friends Friday night, and I hit a wall around 6pm. Had a few drinks and we left the bar(s) around 9 or 10pm. Passed out on the subway, but woke up right as the train pulled up to our stop. That's always a surprisingly good feeling.

Got some chicken and rice and went to my friends house. Ate 5 bites and then realized I had no appetite.

I talked with friends for a good hour, and then I started losing it. I had to sleep. So I curled up in fetal position on a couch and closed my eyes while still talking to friends, who were sitting on the adjacent couch.

Next things I remember, it's pitch black, and the clock reads 3:30am.

Since then I've been waking up before or at 10am. Which is great cause now I can enjoy the day.

Now I just have to find something productive to do besides find a job. Which should consume all of my time in theory, but after applying to a few places every couple days, and then having to look for openings, it only takes a few hours a day.

I mean, since I wake up way earlier than I used to, I have a lot of down time.

I've started reading Pandora's Star. A 988 page science fiction book. This should take me a while.

My next update will have multimedia (ie video, photos, or both)
