Last Halloween, I was finally able to unveil my costume that took me all year to put together: Steampunk Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time. This year, I'm continuing on with the Adventure Time Halloween theme, but with a LOT less preparation. Now I want to know what YOU guys came up with. Adding photos to our Flickr pool so we can all see, is an added bonus. What's your Halloween costume this year?

While walking home from brunch, my friend Drew (of wheat allergy questions fame) and I stumbled upon a nursery that I've always wanted to explore. So we took a detour and started wandering amongst the funky plants and trees for sale. Then we stumbled upon the coolest desk I've ever seen…
So, I am thinking of naming my house. Has anyone else named their house? Is this too antiquated, or will I confuse folks? Or are we bringing the funk to the suburbs? (Good Rick James funk, not gross funk.)
I'm kind of all kinds of love with Manhattan Project Design Shop's lighting collection. My buddy was looking for hanging lamps for his kitchen and dining area. He stumbled upon these, shared them with me, and I had to share them with you.
In my new job, my office is in an inconvenient location, and I don't like to drive from building to building around campus. Consequently, I find myself lugging quite a lot of stuff around with me throughout the day: books, papers, laptop, regular daily stuff. That's why I'm hoping for suggestions from Homies. Does anyone have suggestions for stylish rolling bags to lug around my daily necessities?
I know there are tons of Live Action Role Players (LARPers) out there. How do you find a good group? What should first-timers expect when they go along? Is it cool for us to turn up as a couple? What else should we know about testing the waters here?
