Halloween 2005

Happy Halloween Everyone!

This weekend, my firends and I took the opportunity to dress up and celebrate the best holiday of the year–HALLOWEEN!!!! The pictures are available for your perusal.

I dressed up as the end of the rainbow; I carried a blue umbrella with clouds. My sister was the leprechaun with a pot of gold. We were so cute!

Me and Elizabeth

Me and Rob

Rob, Adam, & Rich were surgeons and a bloody patient. My friend Stephen came up from Florence; he dressed up as Hunter S. Thompson.

We had such a great time out!! I’m already planning next year’s costume.

Haha :)

What kind of streets do zombies like the best?

Dead ends…

Happy Halloween!

Food for thought

Do zombies eat popcorn with their fingers?

No, they eat the fingers separately!

Vampire Joke Part 2

What do you get when you cross a vampire and a snowman?


ps–Christmas is Coming!

Vampire Joke

Why did the vampire go to the orthodontist?

To improve his bite.

Silly Elizabeth

Silly Elizabeth!

This weekend, my sister came to visit me. We ate awesome steak salads at Logan’s, had a drink at Stool Pigeon’s, did some Halloween Formulating, went to the Hook & Needle Club, had sushi, and watched The Wedding Date. It was an action-packed weekend for all involved. Not to mention, I did 6 loads of laundry before she arrived on Saturday. WoW!

Shara’s Neckwarmer

It’s about time to post this neck warmer I made. It’s a great pattern by Shara at Craftster (Pattern Link Here.) I worked on this lovely piece at the meeting of crafty/stitchin’ ladies here in Myrtle Beach that happens every other Sunday evening.

See the Neckwarmer

Skeleton Party

Why don’t skeletons ever go out on the town?

Because they don’t have any body to go out with!


After graduate school, I relished my new-found freedom from exams, papers, & projects. That time has now come to an end; I am in the middle of preparing to sit for my Landscape Architect Registration Exam. On October 14th, my two-year apprenticeship period was complete. On December 5th & 6th, I will be taking the hardest two sections of the exam–Site Planning & Grading. These sections of the LARE have a pass rate of around 36%; they are both drawing sections. Studying is taking up an increasing percentage of my time; it is the main reason my posts on julep have been so infrequent.

I love my job at Environmental Concepts and do not plan to leave anytime soon. Getting licensed as a landscape architect is just the last step of a process that began over 5 years ago when I began my MLA at UPenn. Everyone wish me luck; I promise to post A LOT more after the exam in December!

My New Garter Snake Friend

I met this little snake the other day leaving my office, so I snapped his photo. Then, when I got home, I did the strangest thing; I looked up snakes in a book instead of the internet. Did you know they have information in books too?

Garter Snake

Anyway, I think I’ll call this Garter Snake Rover, but I sure hope I don’t see him again. I’m not scared–I just don’t think snakes can safely hang out that closely to parking lots.
