Pumpkin Flambe

We did some pumpkin carving last night and here are the results.

Julianne's was a tribute to how much we Rule.

Mine was a Pumpkin screaming because his head was on fire - literally.

Here's the aftermath

And finally - here's video of the Pumpkin meets BBQ lighter fluid extravaganza:

Scooter Maintenance

A couple of days ago I went to go start my scooter, and the fuel switch was completely busted. It just flopped back and forth like it wasn't attached to anything inside. So, I contacted my personal scooter consultant, Rusty Guthrie and he gave me some instructions along with this very informative drawing (scanned and emailed).

So, after removing the seat and gas tank, I got it all reattached. THANK YOU RUSTY!

The Triumphant Return

I returned from the WHA conference on Saturday night in one piece. I had a great time at the conference, heard some good papers, saw some old friends, made a bunch of new ones and made some really great connections with other historians in the field. Now, I am back at the grindstone working my way towards my comprehensive exams next month. Ugh and double Ugh!

Western History Association Conference

Me = History Geek to the Max

So, right now I am in my hotel in Oklahoma City, waiting for the WHA conference to start tomorrow. There are a lot of good sessions that I am really looking forward to attending. Tonight was the Nebraska dinner and I had a lot of fun seeing some old faces and talking. The Vietnamese food was . . . ok. I prefer Thai. As far as Oklahoma City goes, I'm impressed. I thought it was more along the lines of Lincoln/Omaha . . . but it is much larger - kind of reminds me of Kansas City.

More later.

very hot and muggy.

White Trash Party - 2007

A couple of weeks ago we had a white trash party here at our apartment, and I thought I would post a couple pictures from the event. It was great. The entire album can be found at our Photobucket account.

I thought the grease-smudged
face was a perfect finishing touch.

You can't quite see it in this picture,
but she was sporting a might huge stuffed booty as well!

Here are a few others

And finally, here are my 2 favorites:
