This year we had a competition in the department - students paid $1 for the Breast Cancer fund drive, and they got to vote for a professor to wear a costume on Halloween. Agustin and Ian tied. Ian came dressed as "Tinker Bell Gone Bad" and Agustin as a "Banana Ecosystem." I have an Ian picture that I'll post later, am still trying to track down Agustin (these pesky classes get in the way!) It's a fun idea, the students seem to love it. I think we have the start of a tradition.
In the meantime, here's a little something for your reading pleasure:
