Hallowe'en at the Office

Work: A few of us dressed up for Hallowe'en this year. Our receptionist came as Mae West, and she looks awesome, complete with feather boa, black elbow-length gloves, pearls, and everything! There are a flapper and several witches--the Good Witch of the East and the Wicked Witch of the West--because they work on the east and west sides of the building. (g) I'm dressed as Professor Snape, in honor of hp_snape, complete with wand and cauldron. I didn't draw a Dark Mark on my arm this year because I'm working now and don't want to go around for the next week explaining what that weird, fading squiggle on my left forearm is.

I left Hershey bars in my cauldron for the office staff and sent an email explaining that the candy was in there because Snape got a spell wrong. One person thanked me for being thoughtful, and another person told me to take 50 points from Slytherin for messing up the spell. I argued that the 50 points should be taken from the person who dared accuse Snape of being thoughtful...(g)

My Dad and Grandma Gaudiano took me out for lunch at Collina's, the local delicious Italian restaurant with the foccacia that's to die for. I am now a plumper Snape than I was this morning!

Writing: NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow. *whimper!*

Current Mood: goodgood

I'm confused, what does Mae West have to do with halloween?

It was a cool costume! :D

How was Hallowe'en on your side of the pond?

Insignificant as usual, we don't tend to get anywhere as 'in to it' as the USA does.

Professor Snape, bringing chocolate for coworkers? That's not very in character--unless you poisoned them. ;)

I trekked all over the city this past weekend, and I could not find a proper pirate hat. So, I'm a hatless pirate this Halloween. This saddens me.

You could try a bandana and earrings, like Jack Sparrow wore. (g)

Re the candy--I explained it as a spell gone wrong, but that's equally out of character!

Chantal

I did wear large hoop earrings. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a bandana in time, so I just went without a head covering. Oh, well.
