For Halloween, we all watched the Thriller video. While parts of it haven’t aged well at all, it’s still a classic. Bean wasn’t impressed…

Nights get longer, cyclists decide it’s not worth the risk along the Route Cantonale.

If you’re lucky enough to be a cat. 

We built it, and they came. Or something like that. In the end, the evening was a good one, albeit tiring. People told us it was the best one yet, and the treasure hunt and the chimenea were big hits. I’m a bit miffed that my vin chaud turned into vin tiède. Need to find a way to keep it warm next year. Still, in the end, people had a good time. Slender-Bean said he has a mostly good time (high praise, I’ll take it!), and Katy and I were skunks with cigars in the park.

I am moo-cow.

Still waiting for people to show up… At lease there is wine. 

Back in the day, when I was a K00L 31337 hax0r, I had a bunch of custom sound settings for my computer (which, also amazingly, have followed me around to my current work laptop!!!). I’m putting these up here for posterity.

You know the advert I’ve been trying to find for years, the one that is forever on the tip of my brain and keeps harassing me? Turns out I’ve had the jingle on my laptop for years.

I’m still no closer to identifying the damn thing, but isn’t that a kick in the pants!

We went to see Ovo in Geneva yesterday. The show was good, but it wasn’t my favourite Cirque show ever. The enjoyment might have been muted by the super annoying family that wouldn’t shut up throughout the whole show, even after multiple glares and request to pipe down. Having said that, the slackline act was good, and the finale was actually quite impressive.

I’ve never been one to complain about Christmas displays, but it seems that they’re coming up earlier and earlier. Ideally, I’d prefer to get Halloween over before the Christmas stuff comes up, but that’s just me.
