I had a very nice Halloween, despite the fact that I got mugged. Physically, I'm alright. A few bumps and bruises, nothing more, and the only thing that was stolen of any value was my camera, but that damn thing cost $250. It wouldn't even be so bad but for the fact that I'm very much unemployed right now. Ugh. Well...Other han that it was a nice night. Now I just have to figure out how in the hell I'm going to afford to replace it.

Hope all your Halloweens went better.

Man, that sucks. Something to be said for being old, staying and home, and just giving out candy to the neighborhood kids eh?

Sorry yours was so unpleasant, and hopefully next year's will be better.

Damn, man. Glad you're all right.

Where're all those spare Lance Storms when you need 'em?

You got mugged in Madison, WI? Man, that place must have gone seriously downhill since I graduated. Where were you?

Just out on State. I've never had any troubles in the past, and I don't expect to have any troubles in the future. All that alcohol and all those people makes for a pretty combustible element, I think. Ah well. Live and learn.

Sorry to hear about your camera. Once again this year, it looks like some drunks got out of hand...

I don't know about the guys in college now, but when I was in school my normal reactions to the bareing of breasts was not "throwing bottles".

Glad to hear you're OK though Excalibur.

It just goes to show that the best and brightest don't (necessarily) have anything to do with our state's capitol. Of course, I hope you get-over it, Excalibur05, and that your faith in humanity wasn't totally destroyed.

Eh, my faith in humanity wasn't destroyed. My faith in an affordable electronics market is however somewhat more destroyed. Stupid people exist, stupid people are even more stupid when they're drunk. Both kinds of people do stupid things. I have a feeling that either the display or the casing were cracked when I fell anyway, so I would probably have to buy a new camera anyway, and he probably didn't get nearly as much for it as he'd hoped.

By the way, of 170 arrests this weekend an estimated 90% were from Minnesota (celebrating the U of M's homecoming in Madison). I feel more embarassed for my home state than I do for my future alma mater.

On that, cran, I was out on Friday night during part of the flashing, and the thrown bottles were the restult of girls who refused to flash. Once SOMEBODY does it, then EVERYBODY is expected to do it (especially if they're looking down on the crowd from a window or balcony). When they don't, that goes against natural order. Of course the out of towners fueled it, because they came expecting a riot so they were going to start one. Singing the Gopher's fight song probably didn't help moods either. Madison is actually pretty happy with the job done by a concert just off of State St., though that was over by 1 and the riot was at 3, and the stripping of most bottles and alcohol that made it down to State in preventing an even bigger riot, as the rain didn't really deter 70,000 people. You wouldn't know it by being down there though. Almost all the windows on the 500 block of State are smashed in (and apparently most of what was in the window displays was looted). Hell, I should have been down there then, maybe I could have looted Radio Shack for a camera.
