Wait...Halloween is on Monday?

Despite my initial thoughts this weekend turned out to have a few good things occure. First WMU won both hockey games versus the nationally 4th ranked buckeyes. Not bad for a squad that was yet to win a game. Second my costume was a big hit at all the parties and bars this weekend. Upon popular demand, I present, with a large warning for those of you who can see, a picture of me in my Halloween costume. As you might recall I dressed up as a Tooth Fairy who had hit hard times because of his job being outsourced.

Finally I wrote more this weekend than ever before, however I doubt very little of it I can use for my paper. I am having a hard time finding any angle that is worth writing 20pages on given the subject of "Globalization and me" & "Globalization and the WMU CS Department."

Outsourcing to foreign countries can't continue forever. As second world countries become first world countries, their currencies will inflate in value just like the U.S. dollar.

As far as I'm concerned, if all the jobs go to Mexico, I'll just drive to to Laredo to pick up the freight. If all the jobs go to East Asia, I'll just drive over to Los Angeles to pick up the freight. If all the jobs somehow go to Europe, I'll just drive over to Philadelphia to pick up the freight. If all the jobs go to India, I'll probably have a more compitent and literate in English driver manager than I do now.

Yea so I didn't meant to give the impression that I am against globalization, I'm not...I just thought it was a funny costume idea.
