Werewolf of London through a Kid’s Eyes

My pointing out this was an old one before they got the hang of how to do  werewolves  was what enticed Anabelle back to Universal Monsters.  Whatever works.  

A little early for Halloween, but none of us knows what day it is anymore anyway.

E-Dorm Life- E-MADness

Engineering classes before the capstone tended to fall all over the spectrum. The fact that I wrote about the capstone before any earlier ones is further evidence that these memories all came bursting back and flooding into my brain in random order.

I still maintain there was an air of practicality missing from many courses. A key year one class that should have been offered was: 
“Vendors who give less than a pile of rat droppings about your deadlines.”

Dungeons and Dragons Memories- Meet the Party

Bat-lets Final Thoughts


Talk about beginning strong and ending with a tornado of dopiness and budget cuts.  
(That probably should have been some kind of figurative language there.)

E-Dorm Life- Shared Classes

Our college group was the Juggling Club gang and we all had different majors.  I was Mechanical Engineering, Brian was Aeronautical Engineering, Randy was Electrical Engineering, Scott was Business, and Jesse was Computer Science.  We often joked we could all join together after we graduated and form a company.
