Every Halloween at work we do the usual thing a lot of other offices do – dress up and have a party! Because why work when you can eat pizza?
This year I had planned on dressing up as a Pink Lady from Grease. Unfortunately I had a hard time finding the stuff I needed for the costume and I didn’t want to spend any extra cash if I didn’t have to. So last night I was picking up some groceries and what do they have on sale? A Ninja Kit! Perfect, I thought. I already have my black Tae Kwon Do uniform, all I needed was the accessories. So one sword, one hood, one ninja star and two daggers later, I’m good to go.
We’re also doing a pumpkin carving contest amidst the pizza and costuming. Each department has to come up with a design and then we win prizes. I found a really cool pattern for Nosferatu, but my misinformed co-workers just stared at me blankly going, ‘who’s that?’. These people apparently have no clue about cinematic horror history. Frightening.
So we settled on the Grim Reaper, which was my second choice. I’ve been put in charge of carving the details of the face. If we screw that up, we’re jumping over to our choice #2 that will cover the mistake – Cyclops.
Meanwhile, I finished writing my last scene for Brimstone this morning. I still have to fix up one other scene but that’s almost finished too. So I am good to start NaNoWriMo tomorrow. Woo hoo!!
