18 of us played 14 games!
There were some Halloween costumes to varying degrees (yay Jeffles, Dan, Whendy, JP, Fred, KevinU, SarahM...). Photos here, and feel free to email any more you'd like added to the gallery. We also saw the eclipse which occurred during RussCon. My ex-cow-orker Greg took some neat astrophotographs of the lunar eclipse.
VOTE! Early voting is underway, and you are encouraged to vote early because there are worries that election day (November 2) will be a chaotic crowded Florida-style fiasco with not everyone even being able to vote. Please pass along this info to others.
Early voting info
League of Women Voters guide
Austin Chronicle endorsements with discussion.
Note Lorenzo Sadun is a very worthy write-in Democrat candidate (I heard him speak at the county convention and liked him). If you support him, take notes when you vote to remember his name's spelling... even if you are a straight-ticket voter, you won't be voting for him since he's a write-in.
If you want to help Democrat candidates, 701 Rio Grande has yard signs for various candidates available for $2 each.
I have been posting a lot of political news at my blog lately, which I encourage you to peruse. This election is very important, please be informed and involved. I know some people who feel Bush is a clear disaster, but don't feel they know much about Kerry. I recommend watching the movie Going Upriver, for which I wrote an extensive review, and which you can actually download free from thekerrymovie.com.
Note that early voting runs 7am to 7pm through Friday October 29 at most locations. Lots of folks are doing it, and thereby probably beating the longer lines on election day. It's important, please vote, whether early or on Tuesday November 2.

Several appropriately Halloweenesque games were played: Ghost Party and Vampire. Yay!

Spooky weird movie music. William and I saw Tarnation, which actually included a little Angelo Badalamenti music ("Mysteries of Love") from Blue Velvet, yay!
