Title: Interesting Objects Found while Searching for Hot DAs

Abstract

We have been searching for southern hemisphere hot DA white dwarfs for roughly the past 10 years. We are using these stars to refine the absolute (color) calibration of the Dark Energy Survey (DES). Along the way however, we have run across an assortment of interesting (to someone) objects which include quasars, magnetic DAs, coolish DAs, a CV, and several non-DAs. We present some of them here; some with results of follow-up observations. Some we are still following ourselves.
