Arcade Pics and Extra Links

 Here are a few sppoky hipstamatic pics I took while at Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum yesterday.  The place was full of coin operated arcade games of all different styles, old and new!
 There were lots of antiques on the walls and the place was just filled with stuff to look at!  It was lots of fun!  Alex won a bunch of tickets and traded them in for a scary "chomping skull" decoration that is hanging in my front window to scare the trick or treaters tonight.
We are planning a day full of pumpkin carving, fall foods, friends, bonfire, Harry Potter, candy, and hanging out.  We got all dressed up and went to a costume party last night at the local hackerspace, I3Detroit, which was much fun, but I am probably going to just throw on a pair of cat ears and goggles today for a costume.  I hope you have a spooky fun day today!  Here are this week's Extra Links:
