It's close to midnight and...

Today: The Bio II exam was taken...Finally!

The plants are done...but honestly, I love our little green friends (who doesn't like oxygen). It's just time to move on to something else now....invertebrates, anyone?

Last night in Art we went over 3 chapters...I have a new respect for anything "etched" because that's a hardcore process. Also, who knew that Tempera paint was (originally) made from egg yolks? I didn't. Oil, Acrylic...Gesso. Wow. Not only are artists talented, they are even more creative for finding ways to get there "idea" onto paper (wood, plaster, etc.)!

Another Reason I love October:

22/23) Spooky music! We all love Music...a lot of people even use it to express and define themselves. Yesterday at work, THRILLER (by Michael Jackson) came on the radio and we were all singing along and doing pseudo-moves from the video.

No matter what you think of MJ the person, MJ the singer and dancer cira 1983 was really onto something with this video (directed by John Landis). I don't know anyone who hasn't seen it. Of course, it is perfectly appropriate this time of year! I know it scared the bejeezus out of me when I was 5!

I'm trying to come up with a list of songs that are very "October-centric":

01) Thriller by Michael Jackson
02) Witchy Woman by the Eagles
03) The Monster Mash by Bobby Pickett
04) Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell
05) Nightmare on My Street by DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince
06) Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.
07) Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult
08) Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
09) I Put a Spell On You by CCR (there are a lot of versions)
10) Halloween Theme by John Carpenter (I know, no words--it's from the movie)

Be sure to tell me what I've missed!

Hey, plants love oxygen! They just get it through their roots (remember?). I'm sitting in Cell Bio, which is the most boring class ever. Blech. I have nothing of substance to say in this post. Sorry.
