Let me first give you some more pictures from the Lansing Pinball League costume contest last Halloween:
And who's that fine-looking peacock? It's my dear bride, in her kigurumi, plus some gloves and a mask that she decorated herself to complete the look.
Winners of the Lansing Pinball League costume contest. League president WVL is in the center doing, I think he said, something or other from Stranger Things, a media product I know not a thing about. Note that bunny_hugger made use of some old bird-foot slippers to add to her look
Nice, huh? Well, here's my mathematics blog's activity the past week.
- Reading the Comics, September 8, 2017: First Split Week Edition, Part 1 and oh, maybe that's why I was looking up Dennis the Menace earlier.
- The Summer 2017 Mathematics A To Z: Sárközy’s Theorem, which I didn't know about before either.
- Reading the Comics, September 9, 2017: First Split Week Edition, Part 2 after a busy but shallow comics week.
- The Summer 2017 Mathematics A To Z: Topology, that I don't make about rubber sheets or coffee cups.
- The Summer 2017 Mathematics A To Z: Ulam’s Spiral, a neat drawing that I don't draw myself.
- Reading the Comics, September 16, 2017: Wait, Are Elviney and Miss Prunelly The Same Character Week and I like finally notice something about Barney Google.
Also, What's Going On In Rex Morgan, M.D.? Besides my discovery that I wasn't scheduled to be writing about Gil Thorp this week?
And now some of our pumpkin-carving from last year. Enjoy, I hope!
bunny_hugger hard at work carving out her pumpkin. My pumpkin's at the far end of the table and much more rushed through, really. On the left is her father's jack-o-lantern.
bunny_hugger's jack-o-lantern, which last year was giving something reminiscent of a Popeye squint, along with the electric candle inside to test out how it looks illuminated.
bunny_hugger's parents got a pack of (reprinted) Halloween cutouts like the kind they saw when they were kids. We estimate the art style to be mostly 1930s. bunny_hugger got a similar pack of (reprinted) cutouts from when she and I were kids. They're more 60s-styled.
Our pumpkins set up outside bunny_hugger's parents' house. Her father's is on the left, and her mother's next to that. Mine is the tall, wide-smiling thing and you know bunny_hugger's already. I needed so many test shots to get one where there would be lens flare from two jack-o-lanterns.
