I like Halloween and we usually celebrate it with friends but this year this holiday coincided with an extremely busy time for me in the office so I could barely breathe – let alone organize anything during the work week.
Ironically, with all that crazy work, my biggest celebration will be in the office: we did great werewolf-themed decorations; I thought of some type of costume (I will dress up as a tuxedo cat and wear Brainwave Emotion Controlled Cat Ears), cooked a dish for our traditional Halloween potluck and even drove to work after hours to put up my entry into The Best Werewolf Detection or Protection Device contest.
I made a “HAVE YOU SEEN THIS CREATURE?” twin-peaks-type poster with a picture of the werewolf, a figure of which we used to decorate the office; ten posters in different parts of the office urge everybody not to approach the werewolf and contact me. I plan to fight werewolves with silver but not by the old-fashioned intracardiac injection (a.k.a. silver bullet in the heart) but via the progressive nasal route of administration using Silver Rain by La Prairie in a beautiful drop-shaped silver bottle (I used to like this perfume and wore it for several years but not any more – so I’m glad I found some use for it).
Do you do anything special this Halloween?
