Long night last night but the tent is up, tarped and blacked out. I have run 90% of the wiring and pneumatics all the speakers are in place. Still to do... gotta get hay!!! No props are out yet but they will all go out in a 2 hours or less. Then it just a big tweak session. Not enough hours left... gotta go take Dade to school... i.am.feeling.spooky
Ok today is THE day I turn into a giant AHOLE! Building starts tonight most likely. I will be disassembling tonight and time permiting reassembling in the front. Also time permiting tarping the front up as well. All I can do is hope for the best hope to get some sleep. We'll see! All the fun is going to start thursday night at sundown... may be a bit much for the younger crowd but it's not gory or real real scary.
Now your iPod can do more than just play music... lust lust lust
Damn I was sick yesterday which puts me even further behind... I need carpet! Carpet and more carpet! I have a very very wet yard right now and I think I'm either going to put down some hay or some carpet to keep the yard from turning into a mud bog... anyone have any ideas? I've started to contact the local carpet companies and they all allow dumpster diving so be on the look out for me please!

Halloween is approaching with great speed! I am having some great difficulty with the weather though... it's raining so much that even the tent is unable to keep out the wet... it's not leaking through the tent, it's coming from under the ground! Everything is so saturated, it may call off the whole thing! DAMN! IT!

Work work work... oh yea and a trip through the closed freeways of Houston to see Formula 51... Who's fantastic idea was it to close I-10 W at 59 and force you on to 59 N?
