You Know You’re In Ithaca When…

…you walk past a parking lot with eight cars in it and six of them are Subaru Outbacks.

European?  Really?!

In walking around the Commons searching for the perfect top to complete my Halloween costume, I came across these signs. I must say that they truly have my hopes up. Actual German-style baked goods?! I hope so!

Morsmordre

Since Halloween marked the return of the Deatheaters, Stephanie and I decided that the only appropriate thing for us to carve into a pumpkin for the department Happy Hour was a Dark Mark. We were pretty pleased with how the skull came out, especially as it was the result of carving based on a quickly drawn sketch by yours truly.

Dark Eyes

On Thursday, having been sick for four days, I went to Health Services to see if they could do anything for me. They couldn’t. I did learn, however, that the dark circles under my eyes were apparently my most noticeable feature because they were the first thing the nurse commented on upon entering the room.

Cable C

I spent Friday chasing equipment problems and data errors that were crippling my research progress. In the end, I discovered that the source of my difficulties was none other than this cable. It must have been pulled or bent one time too many and developed a faulty electrical connection. Fortunately, we have a spare.

Backgammon

Yesterday Joe and I got out my Turkish backgammon board and played a couple of games before watching SNL.

Dead Batteries

The batteries in my external keyboard died today. Unfortunately, though my desk is littered with batteries, none of them have any juice in them anymore. This has left me constantly forgetting that the keyboard won’t respond when I start clacking away on it.

Anniversary Sekt

Anniversaries are an occasion for Sekt.

Cayuga and the State

I did quite a lot, on Saturday, beginning with donating at the blood drive on campus. Most of the rest of my day was spent working on slides for the first half of my APS presentation (personally, I think there are already too many, and I haven’t filled in the ‘previous work’ ones yet). Around sunset, though, Joe and I poked around down on the Commons before deciding that the restaurants there were all rather crowded and/or expensive, so we drove to Chili’s instead. This particular picture is one that I took out our sunset walk on the Commons. I wanted to capture the lights of the State Theater, as well as the general busy-ness of Cayuga Street. Still need to work out just how to get awesome nighttime traffic photos, but this isn’t bad.
