OCT 31 – Not just another day in the office

Not everyone is a fan of Halloween. Just look around my office and you will see a smattering of people who either just plain don’t like the holiday or think they are above dressing up in an inflatable Dutch Girl costume and skipping to the copier.

But there are enough of us here that appreciate the holiday to make this a semi-special day. Actually, it has been a pretty interesting week full of favorite moments for me which I will now share with you.

Favorite comment – A co-worker of mine who thought about dressing up as a pimp but kept making a crack about she has no money for her hos. Apparently she does know much about the pimp/ho dynamic because the money usually travels the other way.

Favorite Costume – The co-worker who came dressed as another co-worker. It was very Jim/Dwight and totally worked.

Favorite Irony – HR gave everyone a carmel apple. You know, the department that runs our dental coverage.

Favorite Pumpkin – Each year we have a pumpkin carving contest. I am not going to lie, I like mine this year. I did a puking pumpkin. Sure, it is not the most original but it made people laugh. I came in second last year. We’ll see how I do this year.

Favorite Diabetic Moment – When before noon I realized I had eaten a cupcake, donut and a slice of Ice Cream Cake. Wilfred Brimley take me away…

Favorite Randomness – A coworker dropped a bag of organic produce from his farming co-op off at my desk. (he does this every once in a while) But it made those who sit around me wonder what the hell was going on.

So to everyone who reads this, have a Happy Halloween and remember, dressing up like Sarah Palin or the Joker is not cool. But dressing up as Sarah Palin as the Joker has potential.

Why are the Joker and Sarah Palin not cool??

It's not that those two people aren't cool, because they are possibly two of the coolest people I know (Insert cold Alaska winter joke here).

It's just that both those costumes weren't very original since there were thousands of others in the same thing.
