Happy October!

October is my favorite month of the year, and Halloween is my very favorite holiday (and has been ever since I was small). As a gift to myself, I am going to have a bit of a Halloween geekfest this month in my LJ. Just FYI.

Before I begin, a couple of notes:

* Serenity was all I had hoped and more. It rocked my world, and I can't wait to see it again. Cheers to all you fellow Browncoats who also went or are going to the theaters this weekend!

* In related news, science fiction author Orson Scott Card (of Ender's Game fame) has reviewed Serenity. I quote: "Well, guess what. It's great. I'm not going to say it's the best science fiction movie, ever. Oh, wait. Yes I am."

* I updated almost every page of my website, and while I was at it, I also took the plunge and registered the domains for and, just for the sake of simplicity.

And now, on to the first installment of my personal Halloweenfest:

Another fun meme brought to you by rfreebern.

I understand the toothbrush, but the 3.5 floppy disc?

And a quote for the day:

Through the ghoul-guarded gateways of slumber,
Past the wan-mooned abysses of night,
I have lived o'er my lives without number,
I have sounded all things with my sight;
And I struggle and shriek ere the daybreak, being driven to madness with fright.

I have whirled with the earth at the dawning,
When the sky was a vaporous flame;
I have seen the dark universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim,
Where they roll in their horror unheeded, without knowledge or lustre or name.

I had drifted o'er seas without ending,
Under sinister grey-clouded skies,
That the many-forked lightning is rending,
That resound with hysterical cries;
With the moans of invisible daemons, that out of the green waters rise...

from "Nemesis" by H.P. Lovecraft
