Happy Halloweeny! :)

D.W.Q.M.: Ian: "Where's your spirit of adventure, hm?"
the First Doctor: "It died a slow and painful death when those bats came out of the rafters."

Happy Halloween, everybody!!


My Halloween village, 2004.

famous people and total lunar eclipse

D.W.Q.M.: "First things first, but not necessarily in that order." -the Fourth Doctor

So there was a bunch of famous people at KSL today...but more about that later.

Before I forget-there's a total lunar eclipse tonight!!! It's only supposed to be partly cloudy tonight, so here's hoping we'll get to see something!!! I'm planning on bringing my small telescope to taco night tonight-it's great for lunar viewing!! :) Here are the details:

Total Lunar Eclipse! (all times EDT)
October 27th the lunar eclipse will be visible in North and South America, and on the morning of October 28th, Europe. We (Eastern and Central observers) will be able to see the total eclipse, while Western observers will see the Full Moon rising with a small bite already taken out of it. :) Here's the breakdown:

8:06pm: Eclipse begins when the Moon enters the light penumbral shadow.
9:14pm: Beginning of the partial phase when the Moon enters the darker umbral shadow.
10:23pm: Totality!! (lasts until 11:45pm. Mid-totality is at 11:04pm)
12:54am: Partial eclipse ends
2:03am: Penumbral phase ends...that's a wrap!
----------------------------------------------------

Okay, about the famous people-I'm going to have to save that for a later entry, but let's just say I've added 4 more names to my 'Famous People I've Seen Through a Door' list. The list had Prince and Jewel (although with jewel it was just a fence-close enough I say!) on it. Today I was able to add Lauren Hutton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mary J. Blige, and P. Diddy to it. :) They were here for a 'Rock the Vote' rally. There's alot to say, and hopefully I'll be able to post some pics too (I didn't have a camera, but I was promised copies from some who did.) It was great fun-Jerm and I were on the phone for 40 minutes-he was letting me know what was going on outside and I was letting him know what was going on inside. ;)

Gotta run-I have to try to get some work done today! (Statistics are going to be very low for the library staff today. LOL.)

Spooky

D.W.Q.M.: Ian: "Where's your spirit of adventure, hm?"
the First Doctor: "It died a slow and painful death when those bats came out of the rafters."

I've updated my front porch for Halloween!! To check it out, click here. Oh, and please let me know if there are missing images-I try to load them all, but I always seem to miss something... :) Thanks!

So tonight I foolishly decided to have a thriller/horror movie marathon all by myself. I made a bowl of popcorn, switched off the main lights, turned on my Halloween lights, lit some candles, then sat down to watch Gaslight (the 1944 version with Ingrid Bergman), the Ring, and Halloween.

...yeah, I'm not sleeping for the next couple of days...

Next week I want to watch the Exorcist and the Omen

...I'll never sleep again. ;)

And then there was one...

D.W.Q.M.: Liz Shaw: "You were a respected scientist once."
the traitorous Dr. Lennox: "Grossly underpaid."

I just found out this morning that I'm the only one left working on the storage project. We went from having four people in June, to just little ol' me. Great...

Speaking of storage, I told everyone at taco night last night that I'm going to be wearing a harness at storage. The look on everyone's face was priceless. :) Seriously though, we've been complaining about the working conditions there, so they want to run some air quality tests-and to be somewhat accurate, they need to run the tests while someone is actually working there. I don't really know the specifics yet. This morning my boss came up and asked what they were planning on doing, and I described it as best I could. He was imagining a mask from the World War I era...said we definitely have to get pictures of that. LOL.

*sigh* back to work for me!

The Orionids

D.W.Q.M.: "One day we'll know all the mysteries of the skies, and we'll stop our wanderings." -Susan

I am taking a brief break from my excitement over Farscape to talk about something else. (look out though, kiddies- I'm not finished with Farscape!!! *heehee* ;) )

Our system at work has crashed yet again, so I'm writing now. (Have I mentioned before how sucky it is when practically your entire job relies on the computer system?) They are taking it down for another major rehaul-someone is going to fix it. (gee, where have I heard that before? ;) )

Heads up!!
the Orionids peak tonight!! (well, more like tomorrow morning.) Best viewing time is in the wee hours of the morning-that's when the shower is the most active. Unfortunately, if you live where I live, it is unlikely you'll be able to see anything at all. Forecast is cloudy, with a 30% percent chance of light rain or drizzle this evening. BOOOOOoOoooooooo. :p

Anyhoo, the maximum for this shower generally lasts between October 20th-26th, but you might see a few stragglers as late as the beginning of November. As the name suggests, this shower's raidant is in Orion, so the meteors will look like they are originating from Orion.

The Orionids claim to fame is not that it is a strong shower (in fact, it really isn't). Their claim to fame is where they originated: the meteors from this shower are the remenants of Halley's Comet (from the debris field left behind long ago-I'm sorry, I couldn't find out what year these are from.)

Clear skies!

Blanket update: 14/36 inches (well, last time I measured, anyway. ;) )

The Peacekeeper Wars, part 1

Farscape

*psssssssst* Don't forget:


There was a slight moment (actually more like several hours) of panic today. I turned on my tv around 1, and discovered my cable was out.

NOOOOOOOOoooooooooooo!!!!!! NOT 32 HOURS BEFORE THE FARSCAPE MINI!!!!!!!!!!!! It's Saturday!!!! They'll never fix it in time!!!

Sometime earlier this evening, the cable came back on. *whew* That was a close one. :) :)

So, in order to prepare for the mini, my friend Arthur and I got together today for a Farscape marathon. Too bad we can't fit 88 episodes into one day. ;) We watched 9 episodes -how do you pick 9 out of 88? It wasn't easy, but this is what we chose:

1-4 are from season 1; 5 is from season 2; 6 and 7, from season 3; and the last two are from season 4.

1. Premiere Well, duh! It's always good to start with the beginning-the episode that started it all! :) Crais is introduced as Number One Bad Guy.

2. P.K. Tech Girl As Arthur said, it's always good to see a jealous Aeryn. ;) LOL. On a side note-the commercial for this episode happens to be the first commercial I ever saw for Farscape. Don't ask me why, but I'll never forget Aeryn firing the freakin' huge pulse rifle, shouting, "Onto the ground...NOW!!"

3. Durka Returns This episode introduces Chiana to the cast. It also introduces us to Durka, Rygel's nemesis, who comes to haunt them again in season 3. (which, incidently, also leads to one of the coolest things Rygel ever does-he gets his revenge, and then walks around with waving Durka's head around on his staff. Ok, maybe you have to be a Scaper to see why, but trust us, it's pretty cool.) ;)

4. Family Ties Season 1 finale. Full of drama and twist and turns (wait, I just described the whole frellin' series... ;) ) Moya becomes separated from her baby, Talyn, as a result of Crais defecting from Peacekeeper Command and 'stealing' the baby ship. At this point, I think it's safe to say that Scorpius is the new Number One Bad Guy.

5. Out of Their Minds To put it simply, this is my favorite episode of Farscape. Period. :) :)

6. Eat Me This episode produced the Crichton Double, which lead to two different story lines: Green-shirt Crichton on Moya, and Black-shirt Crichton on Talyn...with Aeryn. You can do the math. Another side note: some of the stories featuring the Green-shirt Crichton were some of the craziest, wackiest, and 'what-the-frell-was-that' episodes in the entire series.

7. Into the Lion's Den, part 2: Wolf in Sheep's Clothing Arthur picked this one, and it was a damn good choice. I think we both agree that this is among the best dramatic episodes of the entire series. This is the episode where the crews of Moya and Talyn work together to destroy Scorpius's Command Carrier (which by the way, he stole from Crais.) Crais and Talyn sacrifice themselves to destroy the carrier. It is here that you discover that Crais turned out to be not such a bad guy after all. The man turned himself around-you gotta give him credit for that. This has a really great scene: Scorpius, standing on the steps of his Command Carrier as the ship falls apart. The wall behind him has just exploded, and water comes cascading down the steps, as sparks fly everywhere. He's just standing there, slowly looking around. WOW. (trust us, it's good) ;)

8. Kansas Okay, okay-I'll be the first to admit it-I chose this episode because I love the scene where Aeryn is watching Sesame Street. ;) D'argo telling the cop to 'bite me' is pretty good, too. Also, it's fun to see the crew of Moya trying to fit into 1986 Earth. Coincidentally, this episode took place on Halloween. How appropriate. *heehee*

9. Bad Timing Ahhh...the last episode. The episode that led us to believe that our two heroes were blown apart by some unknown alien. The episode that ended with a big, fat, 'To Be Continued'. The episode that helped fuel the fire that was already burning among Farscape fans since SciFi announced it's cancellation several months before. Yeah, I cursed SciFi for a full 15 minutes after I saw this episode. I went through every swear word in our world, the Farscape world- even made up a few of my own. It only made sense to end our marathon with the last episode.

YEah, Farscape rocks. 'nuff said. :)

Actually, enough can never be said about how cool Farscape is. ;) I got the link to this article, 10 Reasons to Watch 'Farscape' from Njak on the OhioScapers list-it's an awesome article-worth the read. If it doesn't convince you to watch even just an episode of Farscape, it at least helps explain why it's legion of crazy fans love it so. :)

knitting away...it's a baby blanket!

D.W.Q.M.: "...Madame Nostradamus made it for me...witty little knitter..." -the Fourth Doctor

My second knitting project!! I promised Karen that I'd start posting my progress on the baby blanket that I am knitting for my sister, who is due in December. :)

I found the pattern I am using at Michaels-it was one of those free project sheets that they have around the store-found it while I was checking out their baby yarn. It said level 2 experience, so I decided to give it a shot. (livin' dangerously, yep, that's me!) ;) I had heard rumors...when I heard people say how hard it is to knit with baby yarn...boy, they weren't kidding!!! The stitching pattern is a little different from the straight garter stitch I used for the Doctor Who scarf (which I still need to post pictures of, I know-I'm sorry!). It took a while getting used to it, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. I'm more critical about my work on this one, since I'm actually making it for someone other than myself. The needles I am using are fricken' huge-US size 15!!! I brought my blanket into work yesterday to show my coworkers, and was working on it during lunch when my boss walked in while we were discussing the size of the needles-someone made a comment to him that he better not piss me off while I'm working on the blanket, cause I could do some serious damage with them if I wanted to. He looked at them, and laughed and said, 'oh, yeah'. LOL. My boss is cool like that.

Anyhoo, this blanket will be approximately 36 inches long when finished. I was told that I wasn't allowed to use blue or pink as a primary color, since we don't know if the baby will be a boy or girl. I'm using green, white, and a multi-colored yarn that is primarily blue, but it has some green in it, and i'm only using a little bit of the multicolored yarn in my pattern.

I was hoping to have it done by the end of the month, because my sister is having a baby shower (who says you can't have a baby shower for the second child? :) ) on November 6th, and I would like to send it to her by then. I think I started the blanket on September 19th, and I'm only about a third of the way through-so we'll see!

Blanket update: 12/36 inches. :)

"My bologna has a first name..."

D.W.Q.M.: "Maybe I am getting too young for this sort of thing." -the Fourth Doctor

A strange occurance was reported at a gas station on the corner of Noble and some random side street last night-a crazy girl was running around a car screaming, "Mr. Spider, you leave my friend alone!" How odd. ;)

Congrats to my friend Angel's son, CJ! His football team won this past weekend, 21-0!!! Woo! Times like this I wish Minnesota was alot closer, so I could go to his games. :) I hear there was much screaming and rejoicing-I love football! :)

A bunch of us from Cleveland went down to Medina this weekend to visit our friends Steph and Dan. Their son is soooo adorable!!! I crawled under the table for an exciting game of Peek-a-Boo, and later, while he was outside swinging, Steph mentioned he loves it when someone stands in front of him and pretends to be hit by the swing. So, of course, I had to run out in front and wipeout. He was very amused. :) The funniest thing, though, was when he was trying to mimic Arthur's growling, 'rarh, rarh, rarh...' Steph said it sounded like he was trying to get his voice to be as deep as Arthur's, and couldn't understand why it wasn't working! ;)

I'm trying to get my Halloween decorations up-really I am. Currently I have half of my lights up, but I still need to dig out a couple of boxes-I swear I had another set of lights for my bedroom, but I can't seem to find them...

Sunday was supposed to have been a decorating day, but it got thwarted a little. The Doctor suggested a new arrangement of furniture for better veiwing of my Halloween (and in a couple of months, Christmas) villages. I ended up spending the entire afternoon cleaning, rearranging, and polishing furniture. I think it's worth it though-Jerm came over Monday night and thought he had stepped into an alternative reality. "I was asleep before I came over...maybe I still am..." ;) He said that with the new arrangement, the living room looks less claustrophobic and it's alot easier to walk through the dining room to the kitchen now. I think I like it, too. When I first did it, I thought, 'oh, geez, what have I done?' but it grew on me, so now it's all good.

I ended up stopping in the middle of my rearranging frenzy to talk to my family in MN. My sister was picking up Boo from Grandma's, so I got to talk to all three. :) Boo was so excited to talk to me! She sang me two songs she had recently learned-the first was a song she learned in preschool...the second, however, was the Freddy Kruger song from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies. How the heck a four and a half year old knows all the words to that song is beyond me. ;) I tried to get her to sing the Oscar Mayer song (one of the little girls in that commercial remind me of Boo). I as I was trying to teach her the song, she kept singing, 'One, two, freddy's gonna get you...' and then said, "You sing your song and I'll sing my song." What a combination that was! I've given up for the time being, but I am determined to teach her that song when I go up there in December. LOL. :)

Don't forget! The Peacekeeper Wars are coming, the Peacekeeper Wars are coming!!!! :) :)

Uff-da, I should have stayed home! ;)

D.W.Q.M.: "But you can't rewrite history! Not one line!" -the First Doctor

Tomorrow all non-essential personnel at the library get the day off-the skeleton crew left behind will get a comp day, but I don't have to come into work tomorrow! Yay! This exciting day off was brought to you by the VP Debate held here tomorrow. Okay, I admit, I am getting a little caught up in the excitement...but not too much. ;) Originally the library was scheduled to close at 3pm tomorrow-it still is, but we got an email Friday from Joanne saying that the library will remain open with only the minimum needed to run circ, reference, and the computing resources from 8-3. Those who do have to work will get a comp day-that's cool.

I still haven't seen any Secret Service people wandering about, but I've been told they've been spotted on campus.

Anyhoo, I digress-I was actually thinking about taking today off, since I don't have to come in tomorrow-make it a nice long weekend. Well, I decided against it, 'cause I forgot to fill out the form on Friday, and I also forgot that my boss is at a conference today, so I couldn't call him this morning to request the day off. I probalby could've gone straight to administration and ask, but I decided against that.

Well, I should've stayed home! I get into work, and of course, the first thing I try to do causes problems (well, maybe not caused-but certainly hindered) I was trying to bring in this week's Approval load, and it got stuck. (no technical terms here-that's exactly what happened-it stalled as I was trying to bring it in) The next thing I know, one of the tech team came running down and said, 'whoever is attempting to load records, please stop!' D'oh! Well, that finally got cleared away, but just before lunch time, the system crashed again, and we are still waiting for it to be fixed. Good thing I remembered the book I'm reading. ;)

Well, since i have some time on my hands (as once again we can marvel at the wonders of your job relying almost 100% on a computer system), I decided to post. :)

The Doctor sent me a couple of interesting articles that I actually had the time to read...about the "original" Star Wars trilogy being released on DVD:
Pray He Doesn't Alter Them Any Further.. and
...So Be It, Jedi

Okay, I know that as it's creator, Lucas has the right to alter and change the movies anyway he wants to-they are, after all, his movies. But we as fans also have the right to dislike the changes, and to say why. :) (there's my disclaimer)

The world must be coming to an end-for I am becoming more and more disenchanted with Star Wars.

Correction-I still love Star Wars, just the versions that are slowly becoming more and more unwatchable as I run them through my VCR over and over again. What I don't like is where the franchise is going.

First of all, I will admit, I did like a few of the changes that Lucas made in 1997-the scene where Biggs and Luke meet on the Moon of Yavin, for one-and a bit more detail with some of the scenes from all 3 movies are cool. But when you start added extra sequences that blatantly say, 'oooh, look, i'm a totally new scene!' that's a bit much for me. (I wish I had some better way of describing that-sorry) I didn't care for the reworking of the end of Return of the Jedi-I happened to like the Ewok celebration. ...more on the end of Return of the Jedi later....

Another thing that bugs me-I'm not much for prequels. Especially for sagas that have been well established. Just ask anyone who's ever talked to me about Star Trek: Enterprise. Too much of a chance for inconsistency. I admit I was excited when Episode I came out-just because we would finally be seeing something new and StarWars, on the big screen! But then I actually started thinking about it. Backstory is nice and all, but then, the original trilogy looses something when you see Episodes I, II, and the forthcoming III, first. There is no mystery to who Darth Vader is... In Empire Strikes Back, when he tells Luke, "No, I am your father." It just isn't the same. I actually saw Empire with someone who had never seen Star Wars before-I remember hearing her gasp with horror at that scene. Now, when I get the chance to properly introduce my nieces and nephew to the original triolgy, I'm afraid they are just going to say, 'so what? we know that already.' Can you see where I'm going with this? Does anyone else feel the same way I do?

Back to altering the original trilogy-I hear that in the final scene of Jedi when Luke sees the ghosts of Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin, the ghost you see of Anakin is not Sebastain Shaw, the actor who portrayed the dying Anakin, but of Hayden Christensen. WHAT THE....?!?!?! Dude, that is just SO WRONG, in SO many ways.

*bbbrrrrrfffffffff*

I need to bootleg my original VHSs onto DVDs, while they are still somewhat watchable. ;)

...next post is going to be a 100% happy post, I swear. :)

October Night Sky....

D.W.Q.M.: Duke Juliano: "There's this man in Florence claims that by arranging ground glasses in a certain order, it's possible to see the moon and stars as large as your hand."
Marco: "Is that a good thing?" -from the 4th Doctor story, The Masque of Mandragora

Today's astronomy post is brought to you by Astronomy Magazine. :)

A few cool events happening this month-if I remember, I'll try to post about them again the day of, or before, the event. :)

Total Lunar Eclipse! (all times EDT)
October 27th the lunar eclipse will be visible in North and South America, and on the morning of October 28th, Europe. We (Eastern and Central observers) will be able to see the total eclipse, while Western observers will see the Full Moon rising with a small bite already taken out of it. :) Here's the breakdown:

8:06pm: Eclipse begins when the Moon enters the light penumbral shadow.
9:14pm: Beginning of the partial phase when the Moon enters the darker umbral shadow.
10:23pm: Totality!! (lasts until 11:45pm. Mid-totality is at 11:04pm)
12:54am: Partial eclipse ends
2:03am: Penumbral phase ends...that's a wrap! :)

The moon looks so cool during the eclipse. I remember when a friend of mine from the dorms and I saw it from the balcony of Norton our freshman year. It was awesome! I'll have to see if I can convince the taco night gang to have a look-see on the 27th!! :)

Orionid Meteor Shower
The evening/morning of October 20th/21st will see the peak of the Orionids this year. (another Wenesday event! Although this will happen well after taco night is over. LOL. ;) ) The quarter moon sets at midnight, so as the radiant gets higher during the night, there will be no moonlight to interfere with the viewing!

Quick bit of trivia: the meteors for this shower are from the debris tail left by Halley's Comet. (one of two showers from Halley's-the other being the Eta Aquarids in May)

Partial Solar Eclipse
October 13th/14th brings a partial solar eclipse! Unfortunately we will not be able to see this, but if you're in Alaska, Hawaii, Japan and northeastern Asia you will be!
The peak of the eclipse will be visible in western Alaska on the evening of the 13th, around 6pm, local time. When it reaches it's maximum, 93 percent of the Sun will be eclipsed. :) In Hawaii, it starts about 5:15pm, and 50 percent of the Sun will be covered. :)
