All Hallow's Eve Eve

Twas the night before Halloween, and all through the etc. ...

Candy in stock - check
Comics in stock (for giving) - check, as long as there's not many more trick-or-treaters than last year (65-70).
Decorations up - most of a check. Some stuff needs to go out tomorrow. That's mostly been Kalen's territory.

I think I'll work from home tomorrow, though. I like being home when the trick-or-treaters are here (because I like to give the comics), and I've got a couple errands I could do in early-afternoon, and a conference call in the morning that I always like to do from home anyway.

Hey, I even got that box of comics sorted this past weekend. And a few other minor things. Should try to check off a whole bunch of things on Sunday (Saturday is going to be for D&D). No Bears game this week to distract me.

Work was busy last week, as talked about in my post last week. This week is more normal, so less stressful. I still have a few things to catch up on from then, so I'll try to plow through them tomorrow.

I've touched on the 47 level in the freerice.com vocabulary, but I always get knocked back down from that level. OK, how many grains of rice do you think are in a pound (or kilogram, maybe)?

I guess that's it for now. The Halloween wrap-up will be tomorrow night.

  • I had to Google it, since I asked. One site claims 36,590 grains of rice per kilogram. Another claims 43,130. A third claimed 60,000. Depends on the variety of rice, I'm sure.

    Assuming 40,000 grains/kilogram (close enough), freerice.com has been getting donations from the sponsors for more than 1000kg of rice the past couple of days. 1 metric ton (or 1 megagram, if you prefer). A few hundred bucks a day in sponsorship, I suppose. Not bad. Not earth-shattering, but nothing to sneeze at either. So, go exercise your vocabulary and give the sponsors an excuse to throw in a bit more money.
