Happy Halloween!

It's been a pretty mellow Halloween this year. So much so, that I recycled a previous costume for a Halloween/housewarming party that B and I attended on Saturday night. Neither of us were very inspired this year...plus, it was hard to come up with an idea that would top last year's John & Yoko get-up! B decided to be a suicidal Kurt Cobain (tasteful!) at the last minute, so I thought abut being Courtney Love, but it just wasn't quite working out (I couldn't seem to look strung-out enough), so in the end I went with my backup Fifties Gal costume from 4 years ago, or whenever ago that was. The party was fun, and although I wasn't all that jazzed about my costume, it worked and I didn't have to buy anything. I think I also haven't been quite in the spirit of things, since it is my first Halloween at my new office, where no one dresses up (contrast that heavily with good ol' Ste. 910, where we would always dress up). It's kind of a bummer. I thought about going to work in costume today, but then decided that might be too much to handle, so instead I chose a modest pair of little, red, glittery devil horns as my only special adornment for the day. Who knows though, perhaps I will start a trend here. After all, no one used to dress up at the old place either- I remember the first year anyone dressed up, it was me- and I started off small there too- just my normal work attire and a blonde wig. More people dressed up the following year, and now it's a major event. I was actually just speaking with a coworker here who is similarly bummed that we aren't doing anything special today (apparently, other departments in the company are having their own festivities, costumes included). She said that everyone at her previous work would dress up too. So, there's hope for next year! Until then, I thought I would leave you with one of my most favorite Halloween photos ever, of some random ghost dogs. Have a great day! :)

Yay! Happy halloween ladies! Awe, I miss the good ol' dress up at LZ. :( This year I was a cave woman, bone necklace and all. It was sad to come to work w/out a costume. I will just have to keep the image of Kanj in a pink wig in my head all day...HA!

I was sad this year as well - can't dress up at my place since I'm only one of three at my office. Maybe I'll resurrect the penguin next year...
